I was so happy to have found Dr Chen at C and C Dental in Brookline. Dr Chen is excellent very professional and knowledgeable he is very gentle and his work is perfect. He made and placed a new crown in less than 2 hours. I felt no pain and felt very comfortable. I also had my teeth cleaned by a very gentle and excellent hygienist. I highly recommend Dr Chen and his staff. I recall that I sent him an email at 11:00 pm for some problem I had and got an answer from him within 10 min. Dr. Chen cares for his patients and in addition he has a very good sense of humor. His rates are reasonable to USA standards , free parking is available nearby his office. My husband was also very pleased with the work he did for him.

Dr. Chen is really what every dentist and doctor should strive to be. After the most pain-free cleaning I’ve ever had from the very friendly hygienist, Dr. Chen sat down with me and walked me through my x-rays, explaining everything in exquisite detail, and guiding me through his thinking process while developing my treatment plan. It was an ideal experience. The rest of the staff is extremely friendly and the office is scrupulously clean and extremely modern and up-to-date. Really, one of the best dental experiences overall of my life by a truly fantastic dentist.

I hadn’t had a cleaning in over a year and came to Dr. Chen because of good Google reviews. This was the best dentist appointment I’ve ever had! The staff are great at giving transparent explanations and made me feel very informed and comfortable. It was also very easy to book appointments and fill out paperwork by phone ahead of time. Dr. Chen was also very responsive by email. I’m excited to come back and definitely encourage anyone reading this to give them a try! (My experience was so great that I’m leaving a Google and Yelp review, which I never do!)

Dr ERIC Chen and his assistant Elaine are simply amazing!!! I know dr Chen for three years now and would never go to see anybody else but him.  Even though  I moved all the way to Concord with my husband we still only see him.  I tried Gentle  Dental once instead cause the place is much closer and deeply regretted my decision. Dr Chen is an excellent dentist and an amazing person (just like Elaine)!!!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Chen! He and his staff are extremely friendly kind and caring. I had been without dental care for quite awhile, and I needed a lot of work done in a short period of time. I really appreciate that they took the time to show and explain why each bit of work needed to be done. Whenever I’ve gone in it always feels like everyone genuinely cares. Dental work can be really stressful to have done, but I haven’t felt that way since becoming a patient here. This has been the best dental experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Chen is a great dentist and person! I can’t recommend him enough!

Jess T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Yes I love this office, and I love Dr. Chen. I was a patient of his when he used to work at his old office in Allston. I am a loyal patient. I recently had a problem, I called his old practice but he was not available for three months, that does not sound like Dr. Chen. So I went and googled him and found his new office. I do not mind traveling the few extra miles for him because he is simply the best doctor ever. He is every down to earth, I am terrified of the dentist but when I am on his chair I am relaxed and cool. His new office is beautiful, his staffs are awesome. The vibe in the office is just great and I am recommending DR. CHEN and his office to everyone I know that needs a dentist. Go and you will not regret this decision. He is just so awesome. I can go on and on about Dr. Chen but I want you guys to go and see it yourself. Seeing is believing, Thank you Dr. Chen for all you done for me and my family.

*covid review* I just left my first visit today and could not be more impressed with the cleanliness, professionalism, and thoroughness of this dental practice. Everyone there was so kind and the dental associate who did my cleaning was so good at explaining every step before she proceeded. Her process was very meticulous. I’m used to other places really rushing through just to get it done but you could tell she was taking her time and making sure to give me a good clean. At the end she also went back to show me the right way to floss which I super appreciated because other places always tell you to floss but never really tell let alone show you how to do it correctly. At the beginning I believe she also was feeling around the neck area to check my lymph nodes which has never happened at any other place I’ve been. During the procedure they provided me with glasses to wear which was really nice because there’s always water and gunk flying around during the cleaning and I would normally have to always keep my eyes closed. Overall super impressed with this place. Will definitely be back and will definitely recommend!

Just had one of the most painless filling ever! He has a technique of administering the lidocaine that makes you question whether he even actually just stuck a needle into your gums. Looking forward to taking care of all my dental needs with this office! Thank you for understanding my fears and helping me overcome it Dr. Chen!

Lourie Rivera (Source: Google)


I was terrified of going to a dentist’s office because of childhood traumas from my dentist in Puerto Rico. With Dr. Chen all those fears went away. He’s super patient and very professional with myself, my husband and our kids. I just got one of my wisdom teeth extracted today and at first I was so anxious and nervous about the whole process but as always; he was patient and gentle, gave me lots of information and everything went smoothly and I didn’t feel any pain. We recommend Dr. Chen and his staff 1000%!!!

Matt H. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Modern equipment, knowledgeable, gentle and thorough. Friendly people. Took their time with my cleaning to ensure no pain with my highly sensitive teeth and to ensure thorough cleaning. Took more time to explain my xrays than any dentist I’ve ever been to. I can’t recommend enough.

Christine B. from New Milford, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had my fair share of dentists throughout my life, but I can say without a doubt that Dr. Chen’s high quality of care and personable customer service easily puts him at the top. I have never had a dentist take the time to walk through my x-ray with me–going through it tooth by tooth and explaining how he is thinking about and interpreting the image. It’s great because he uses the x-ray to justify his clinical reasoning and reassures me that he not just trying to take money away from me. As a patient, I really appreciate that he is so thorough in explaining everything and involves me in the process. Dr. Chen is also very personable and so involved in your care. After my appointment, he PERSONALLY emailed me my x-rays and made notes of the teeth that I would need to get filled and teeth that I should take extra care of. He is super friendly, non-judgmental, and has genuine concern for his patients. His team is also equally accommodating and friendly. Dr. Chen and his team are one of a kind–the quality of their care is superior and patient-centered. They make the unpleasant experience of going to the dentist SO pleasant and I cannot be happy enough 🙂

Dr. Chen is fantastic! I’ve had several bad experiences with dental care over my life, but he was kind, gentle, and went out of his way to help me and give me good advice. I have had composite veneers on my front teeth since I was a kid and one of them broke off this summer during the pandemic and was causing me some sensitivity when eating or drinking. Dr. Chen saw me quickly and patched the tooth for a very good price, even though I did not have dental insurance. I have referred my family to Dr. Chen and will be returning to C&C Dental for my dental needs going forward.

If you want personal attention and care, go to Dr. Chen. When I brought my baby to his office because I couldn’t find childcare, he literally played with the baby while she was fussy and then his receptionist did the same while I was getting my exam. He takes tons of time with you and answers all your questions. He doesn’t do unnecessary procedures and explains everything. This is a PERSONAL experience like none I have ever had at a medical office. Let me me give you another example: I sent his office an email asking for copies of my x-rays (since sadly I had to move away!), and in less than an hour Dr. Chen himself replied with copies of the x-rays and a personal note reminding me about which teeth we were watching for possible cavities and wishing me well in my new home. Never seen anything like it. Here’s hoping you never change, Dr. Chen!

Melody W. from Allston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’m moving back to Boston and hopeful that my new insurance will allow me to return to C and C Dental. This is the best dental experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Chen is amazing and great at explaining everything. I enjoy going over the X rays, and he is always patient and thorough. I never feel like he is pushing unneeded procedures. Customer service is great, and sometimes I will reach out via email, which is very convenient. The hygienist is super nice. Bonus is that Dr. Chen speaks Chinese.

Nikki T. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I saw Dr. Chen today for a second opinion, and I will now be switching me and my daughter to his dental care. He was thorough, educational and provided simple suggestions to improve oral hygiene. Practice-wise, the office is beautiful and has new equipment. They had a same-day appointment for me and were willing to work with my insurance for coverage. Overall, I am very pleased!

Katelyn P. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen and the rest of the staff at C and C Dental are fantastic! I’ve always hated going to the dentist, especially after a nasty financial experience at a different practice, but C and C Dental is far different and much, much better. From the moment you walk in, the office feels really calm and relaxing. The staff are super friendly and make you feel welcomed and relaxed. Dr. Chen has done some fillings for me (after neglecting the dentist for several years) and he’s always made the experiences quite tolerable. All in all, this is a great practice and I would highly recommend it!

Lindsay J. from Brookline, MA (Source: Yelp)


This was by far the most pleasant dental experience I’ve ever had. I was taken promptly at my appointment time, and everyone in the office was pleasant, polite, and accommodating. The office is impeccably clean, modern, and updated. I often feel like dentists are judgmental/condescending if you don’t floss 8 times a day or whatever, and Dr. Chen doesn’t make you feel that way in the slightest; he’s very funny and personable. He walks through your x-rays with you, making sure to explain what you are looking at and what it means. He also didn’t push treatment/fillings, merely made a note of which teeth we should watch. I was in and out in under an hour and would recommend him to anyone!

I started seeing Dr. Chen several years ago and was immediately impressed by his warmth, clinical knowledge, clean/modern office, and friendly staff. He always takes the time to educate me and answer all of my questions, no matter how silly. His recommendations are trustworthy and his work is impeccable. I moved out of state temporarily a couple of years ago and saw another dentist for a cleaning, and when he saw a filling that Dr. Chen had done, he said, “Wow, whoever did that filling is the Michelangelo of dentists!” Since moving back to the area I’ve returned to Dr. Chen and so long as I’m living in Massachusetts I won’t consider any other dentist. I’ve even converted my fiancé and my mother over to Dr. Chen and they are both loyal patients now. I highly recommend Dr. Chen!

First time going to C&C Dental after my dentist retired. Office follows safe covid practices: (temperature checks, mask and eye coverings). No long waiting; respectful of people’s time. Hygienist was gentle taking X-rays and cleaning. Dr. Chen explained in detail through X-rays the overall health of my teeth. I would recommend.

G K. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had Dr. Chen as my dentist for a number of years now and I have always had a pleasant experience anytime I’ve needed some dental work. He’s a good doctor who has helped me through routine and nerve-racking dental issues with the same care and expertise. Great service every time. I recommended him to my coworker and she agrees he’s the best dentist she’ve ever had. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.

Carly B. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I was so impressed with how friendly everyone at C&C Dental was! Every single member of the staff I encountered was so pleasant. They explained every part of the cleaning as they went, and Dr. Chen went through my X-rays with me very comprehensively. I appreciate their commitment to transparency and communication.

Leah C. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen and C and C dental have been great so far. I’m a fairly new patient, but their flexible hours and bedside manner when it comes to treatment has been really excellent. Email communication is okay not great, but the fact that it’s even an option is really nice. I’ve never had to wait very long for my appointment, they are really fast in getting you in and out. It’s also got a nice view outside, and they play soothing music which is great considering I need all the soothing I can get in a dental chair. Finally, he’s also a very gentle dentist which is awesome… he talks you through it and does his best to make you comfortable. All in all, I came from a dentist office I really liked, they were just too booked up and thought I’d go here just for this one procedure, and ended up switching dental offices entirely!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Chen since I moved to Boston from Ohio about 4 years ago and just now thought to review him. When I first started coming he did all the cleaning as well as the other parts, and I’m happy to say that he continues to be as good as ever. Dr. Chen is among the friendliest people I know and one of the most patient doctors I’ve seen. He communicates extremely clearly and will answer absolutely any dental questions without judgement. He also took time to understand my needs early on when I received a couple fillings to ensure that I would be as comfortable as possible (and it worked well!) He and the hygienists as well as the front desk person all know me by name, and I feel like they really care about me as a patient. On top of that, I can’t remember a time I was ever waiting more than 5 minutes in the waiting room except at times that I was very early for my appointment (though he has often gotten me in 10 minutes early if I arrive that early) In case it wasn’t obvious, I highly recommend this dental practice to anyone in the Greater Boston Area (and honestly even for people further out if you have had trouble finding a dentist that really cares and listens to you.)

I’ve been going to Dr. Chen a couple years now for my regular 2x/year cleanings and a couple other dental needs. He and his staff are very friendly, patient, and efficient! They take the time to answer any questions I have. I’ve always felt confident they did a thorough job. The location is convenient using the T or driving; there is some free street parking nearby. I highly recommend seeing Dr.Chen and his staff!

Courtney J. from Clatskanie, OR (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen is the best dentist I’ve ever seen. I have tons of anxiety about going to the dentist and going here was the most comfortable I’ve ever been. He is so nice and understanding about being anxious and also has a stress ball tooth called mr squishy that he offered me to hold (and I accepted lol). All of the hygienists I saw were also so friendly and personable, I haven’t had a bad experience here. Unfortunately I’ve moved states and will have to find a new dentist- I highly highly recommend this place though if you’re in the area!

Athalia L. from Dorchester, Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I love Doctor Chen!! I get anxiety around dentists and getting work done and Dr. Chen was so nice about it. He’s calm and funny and makes you feel 100% comfortable while also explaining what he’s doing to you. He is so kind and is also very professional as is the entire staff. The entire office is super clean, everyone is masked, and they are taking amazing covid restrictions ensuring chairs are thoroughly cleaned, etc. I’ve been coming to this dentist for a couple of years now and don’t plan on leaving.

Amy P. from Brookline Village, Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t changed dentists in 25 years but when I moved and needed a new dentist, C&C came right up with 5 stars so I decided to check them out. Everyone in the office was so nice, they were very accommodating to make my first appointment. They helped me with my insurance and continued to email me after to make sure it was set up correctly. The office is also beautiful and clean! I also love that they have after 5pm hours for someone who works full time! I’ve suggested them to a few friends because you just won’t find a sweeter staff anywhere!

SJ L. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Exceptional – I’ve worked in dental offices so I am critical. Dr. Chen and the hygienist Bonnie were great. They both took their time with me and were personable and kind and made sure I understood what they were doing and why at every step. Dr. Chen has a great sense of humor and I felt so comfortable. I had a routine visit with x-rays and a cleaning, so I can’t speak to the restorative work experience or prices (never saw a bill due to my insurance). The office was very clean. I’d recommend C&C to anyone in the Allston/Brookline/Longwood area!

Super friendly and helpful staff. Hygienist was excellent with children, and they rewarded with adorable toys in a goody bag. Dr. Chen was kind and funny, great with kids! Dr. Chen educates the parents well regarding what to expect from their children’s dental development. Overall AMAZING, 5 stars for sure!

I’ve always liked getting my teeth clean, but LOVE going to C&C Dental for my cleanings. The team there is great, friendly and warm. Dr. Chen and his hygienists are very personable and knowledgeable. They’ve told me to watch out certain areas of my teeth that are prone to cavities (due to the teeth orientation) and so far, no cavities there since I’ve been more diligent cleaning those areas. I don’t want to disappoint them by having cavities! They’re great! I’ll be sad losing them when I move out of Boston.

Yuka Y. from Watertown, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen is by far the nicest dentist I’ve ever met. The first step I took out of the elevator, he was already sitting at the front desk and greeted me by my name. The interior is modern and absolutely clean. The most impressive aspect of Dr. Chen is his level of personal care. I’ve never had a dentist show me xrays of my teeth and explain what cavities/healthy enamel look like. He also was able to show me with a live camera all the hidden nooks and crannies. Eliane, his assistant, was really gentle as well. Both are really patient and soft spoken health care professionals. If I were a kid, I’d be 100% comfortable in their presence. Dr. Chen makes it clear that he loves his patients to make their own decisions regarding their treatment. He doesn’t push his patients to do anything. He is actually the first dentist to not ask me whether I want braces because I don’t have impeccably straight teeth, which I appreciate. He completely understands that everyone’s financial situation is different and lays out the pricing for various fillings at the end of your appointment. I was really surprised to get a goody bag of tooth paste, brush, chap stick, and floss at the end. Sweet! Fantastic practice and care.

Rachel B. from Weston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I like Dr. Chen for all the same reasons mentioned by others – he doesn’t focus on making money off my teeth to perform unnecessary procedures, never have to wait long at his office, very knowledgeable and patiently explains the condition of my teeth and genuinely caring. I sent my husband to see him (not his patient initially) for an emergency appointment for a broken crown. Dr. Chen was able to see him the same day despite his full schedule and my husband came home happy with a new crown the same afternoon (one appointment only) because he is able to make the crown himself in his office, unlike other dentists who have to send the mold out to other labs, taking a few weeks for the permanent crown to come back.

Angela M. from Apollo Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen was spectacular! I would recommend anyone and everyone to go and see him! The outside of the building seems a little sketchy but once you go up to the 3rd floor to C and C dental you will see how beautiful the office is! The personnel were all extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. Chen took the time to explain everything he was doing and make sure I understood everything when I was there and when I left. he has state of the art technology and even was able to show me inside my mouth on a TV screen! I normally HATE going to the dentists and am so happy to have found Dr. Chen!

Connie Gao (Source: Google)


I hadn’t had a cleaning in over a year and came to Dr. Chen because of good Google reviews. This was the best dentist appointment I’ve ever had! The staff are great at giving transparent explanations and made me feel very informed and comfortable. It was also very easy to book appointments and fill out paperwork by phone ahead of time. Dr. Chen was also very responsive by email. I’m excited to come back and definitely encourage anyone reading this to give them a try!

Lannie L. from Brookline, MA (Source: Yelp)


I had to switch dentists due to an insurance change but am so glad I found Dr. Chen. His office is located conveniently in Brookline and was very clean and modern. Even the office music was very soothing, like I was in a spa. I’ve gone to see him twice now, for a routine check-up/cleaning and also to repair a tooth/get a filling. He was very gentle and kind, easy to talk to, and very meticulous with his work. I really dislike going to the dentist but it’s comforting to know that he will take care of me with integrity and kindness. I sent my husband to see him too and my husband reported that he asked about us and remembered some of what I had shared with him. When I left the 2nd time, he asked me to say hello to my husband for him. What a guy!
