Dr. Tran is the best dentist I’ve ever been to in my 64 years. He is so professional, gentle and caring. He takes his time and listens to anything you may have a question about. As one who is as white-knuckled as can be on a visit to the dentist, I almost fell asleep while he was filling a cavity!! Really! Can’t say enough about this dental group. I’m a client for life!!!!

Brian S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dentist is amazing. He’s very professional, courteous, friendly and does a great job. I’m so happy I found him. I would definitely recommend him and his friendly office staff.

Carla N. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love the new, younger Dr. Tran! My whole family does too! All of the staff is very friendly and professional. Dr. Tran prepped me for my Clear Correct (similar to Invisalign), and the results were great! He explained how the process would work, and answered any and all questions that I had throughout the process. I brought my grandma in for a new set of dentures, and she was so happy with the results! She really appreciated how he took his time, taking measurements, helping her select an appropriate color, and making the necessary adjustments so they’d fit comfortably. He is extremely patient and kind with his older patients. My mom and sister were both happy with his gentleness and how friendly he is.

This a great dentist who I wish I had found a long time ago. He is good, honest and puts you at ease. I would recommend this dentist to all.

Samuel A. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


Recommended by another patient. Couldn’t have been more happier. Great place. They are very friendly & immediately put me at ease. Very professional, honest. Genuinely seemed to care about my comfort.

Mandy V. from Fountain Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in because the old bonding on my front tooth was starting to chip/get uneven and Dr. Tran did an amazing job! You’d never know that my tooth was chipped. I love his assistants- they’re all friendly and they make the visit very comfortable. My entire family comes here and they all had great experiences.

Morgan B. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to this dental office for about 20 years and they have always been the best. From when i was a child to now, they are always accomodating, helpful, and do a great job making me feel comfortable. If you are looking for an amazing, friendly dental office with great employees then look no further. This is the best place for your mouth.

Elma M. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Google)


Thank you to the friendly staff at Doctor Tran’s office for quickly finding out my dental coverage and scheduling me in. It had been 2 years since my last checkup (clearly I was overdue). The dentist was never my favorite place but under the care of Doctor Tran I was 100% relieved after my visit!! He handled my deep cleaning with care and answered all my questions thoroughly and with a smile. For the first time in a while I left the dentist happy and content. Thank you Kalina for polishing my teeth and educating me on the proper care of my teeth. I plan to get my teeth whitened next. See you all again soon!!

J. A. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr . Tran is the best . I went in for my first time to get a wisdom tooth pulled out. He does everything possible to make sure you are comfortable before ,during , and after your procedure. His staff is also great, shout out to Marcos for all of his assistance in getting a quick appointment. Definitely coming back for any future procedures.

Leslie B. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tran and his assistants Marcos and Kathy are #1 when it comes to all your dental needs. Next time you or someone you know is looking for a dentist this is the place, look no further you will not regret it!

Stefanie R. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very friendly staff and Dr Tran makes you feel comfortable and explains everything in detail to you. What I like the most is they will always get pre-authorization from my insurance before any procedures are done so I know exactly what I have to pay or if my insurance will cover it or not. I recommend him to all my friends, family, and coworkers I have been to some dentist in the past that try to force you into procedures you don’t need to make money and I like that Dr Tran explains all the procedures to you and why they need to be done.

Ruby M. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best Dental office around! My husband kids and I all come to Dr. Tran. The staff is super friendly and the place is really clean. My daughter just had a baby root canal and Dr. Tran and his staff were really patient with her making sure she was at ease through the whole process. We’ve recommended them to all our family so now even my mother in law is a patient.

Ociel C. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Upon visiting my new ortho dentist, I needed a full exam of my teeth before starting my actual braces treatment. I got recommended to this really good dental office suggested by a friend, so I decided to check it out. I asked for a regular cleaning with full exam and expected something a little over 70$ but no! Really affordable full exam, cleaning & X-rays for 50$! After that, I told the doctor when I went in that I went into a different office and they suggested that I get a deep cleaning. The doctor told me his honest opinion and said if I wanted the deep cleaning I could do it but it really wasn’t necessary, but I still decided to do it because I’ve never had a deep cleaning before. The deep cleaning too was very affordable! 500$!The assistant explained throughly what was going to be done and why. I got the deep cleaning and addition antibiotic solution for 500$ when at the previous office I went to was trying to charge me 1200$!!! Thank you extremely to the Doctor and also the staff! They educated me and I loved the fact that they were HONEST.

Eddie G. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is an outstanding dentist who takes his time with you, is very thorough, and is very caring about the care his patients receive. I think very highly of him and will continue my regular visits with him. I’ve been a patient of his for the past three years and he has done significant cosmetic work and his work is incredible and prices are very affordable

Tyler N. Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to dr. Tran for at least 8 or 9 years and I absolutely have nothing but good things to say about dr. Tran. I never have to wait more than 10 minutes which is huge for any medical appointments. Fortunately I have not had to have any major works done and dr. Tran is very gentle and courteous and so is his staff, Marcos and Kathy. I highly recommend him to everyone.

Garry A. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love that Ken Tran Allows you to pay cash for teeth cleaning as most insurances only pay for it twice a year and he only charges 30 dollars for it. Other dentists want three times as much for out of pocket teeth cleaning.

Tien T. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Ken since my elementary days and have followed him to every new office. Because of distance, I’ve tried going to four other dentists but I have always ended up back with Dr. Ken. He is a graduate of UCLA dental. Who doesn’t love a bruin?! And because my friend is currently in the dentistry program there, I hear lots of positive things about it and love and appreciate my doc even more. His office is located on brookhurst and chapman. It is clean and nice and it faces the vet so I get to sit in the waiting room and awe at the sight of cute puppies! The staff are incredibly friendly and Dr. Ken is very gentle. I remember fearing dentists before him. The numbing shots were the worst!! Somehow, he had strategies that allow me to tolerate the pain. Going to the dentist hasn’t ever been a problem here. I would drive a little longer just to be treated by him rather than experiment at a dentist behind my house.

Michael S. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Ken Tran, DDS for years. My wife introduced me to him and I’ve been coming here every since. Dr. Tran takes care of my whole family. I have had many different kinds of procedures done from routine teeth cleanings, to deep cleanings, to fillings. After getting my teeth filled and becoming cavity free, Dr. Tran couldn’t stress enough that I needed to floss daily. I took his advise and I haven’t had a cavity since. All the work I have gotten done has been great. He really takes his time to get it right. He makes me feel comfortable. He always warns me if he thinks I might feel some pain. He has mastered his technique so he knows how to minimize pain. He really cares about his clients and makes sure you leave feeling satisfied. The staff is also very friendly and personable. I recommend Ken Tran, DDS services because he is an expert in his field.

J. C. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


So glad that I found this dental office. Dr Tran and his staff did an amazing job with some pretty serious dental work that I needed done. Well probably pretty easy to them, but in my eyes, an extraction where only the roots were left of the tooth, is pretty serious work. I had gone to other dentists to get an examination and they did not impress me as much as this office did. So I gave them the work and I’m glad I did. Not to mention the price was less than a quarter of what I was quoted elsewhere. I even canceled my dental plan due to how low i was quoted for cash.

Qui V. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I always had a fear about seeing a dentist, however Dr. Tran made it easy and wonderful for me and my wife. He is very professional, gentle, compassionate about treating his patient. He explained everything thorough every step of the way. I’m glad I found him on yelp. Chapman Dental workers were also great and professional. I will definitely recommend Dr. Tran to families and friends.

Lucy T. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I felt welcomed the moment I stepped foot into this office. From the front desk to Dr Tran, everyone was very professional and made me feel comfortable. Dr Tran really does care about his patients. I felt I was in good hands. I had my wisdom tooth pulled out which could be a very frightening and traumatic experience but I felt safe and at ease under Dr Tran’s care.

Kathryn M. from Diamond Bar, CA (Source: Yelp)


I elected not to take my employer’s dental insurance because it actually ends up cheaper just going to my family dentist without insurance because he’s known me since I was a baby and never charges me more than he knows I can handle. So that’s all good except I work and live an hour (without traffic) from my hometown where my dear dentist is located. You can imagine how much I was in a panic when I developed this toothache and the next available weekend appointment (didn’t want to take off any work) for my normal dentist wasn’t for another week and a half.. I looked on yelp and called a total of 4 dentists in the area with high quotes for someone without insurance or no answer altogether. I decided to call this office at 1045am on a Friday morning while at work. A nice gentlemen answered and was able to give me quotes over the phone based on what I described that I needed done (based on web md searches online! Lol). He was honest about how much it could go up to but assured me that it would be best to come in, get an xray, check up, and routine cleaning for $50 and then we can discuss options from there. So I made the call at 1045am, was able to be squeezed in at 1115am, ended up getting an xray, got a cavity filled, and a deep cleaning on half of my mouth for that one session and was out by 1230pm and was able to use my lunch break for a dental appointment! Price was a little more steep than what my normal dentist charges BUT I knew EVERY single thing the doctor and his assistant were dping at every second because they patiently explained to me all that was going on the whole time. The assistant was SO gentle and caring. They really made my experience kind of wonderful…who LIKES going to the dentist??! Also, they allowed me to do half of my mouth today for the deep cleaning to help me with my costs!

Audrey S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tran is an excellent dentist, great staff. I was seen in a timely manner and appreciated how honest Dr. Tran was about treatment options. This is why I did not mind driving from inland empire to Orange County to be seen by Dr. Tran. It is hard to find a trusting dentist but am glad I was able to be a patient of Dr. Trans.

Adam P. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Google)


It’s been a while since I have seen a dentist but that is because I have had horrible experiences in the past. This is best dental office I’ve been too. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. And you dont have to wait a long time. 5 stars.

Eric C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had to schedule a dentist appointment last minute, and they were very accommodating. Very friendly staff, explained everything they were doing, and cracked a few jokes while doing it

Christine K. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been here for over 20 years. Originally, I started with Dr. Ken Tran. I was in college back then. It is strange for me to say I go to my dentist since they are like family to me. Last year, Dr. Ken Tran retired, and I was sad to hear him leave. However, when I met the new Dr. Tran, nothing had changed. The kind, warm, and friendly interaction has not changed a bit. Maybe because it runs in the family. I always feel welcome and taken care of. The staff is always so sweet and friendly. I clean my teeth every three month, so I feel like I’m visiting my family. My husband and mother both go here as well. If you want a place where you are treated like a human being and not another number, this is the place for you. I’m always happy and satisfied with their work. After 21 years, and I am still coming back tells you what a great place to have your teeth taken care of so that your smiles shine through.

Tiane V. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I decided to go to a new dentist that was in network for my insurance and I’m so glad I went to Chapman Dental. Both Dr. Tran and his staff were super friendly and accommodating. They clearly explained everything they were doing and were super informative and patient when I had questions about insurance and billing.

Malay P. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is great! Especially Marcos, he’s been so patient and accommodating. A wealth of info when it comes to insurance and more. Dr. Tran makes you feel comfortable and he explains our options thoroughly, we greatly appreciate that! The staff are fantastic, they are all friendly. Thank you guys for all that you do!

Gretchen L. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Ociel C. Anaheim, CADoctor Tran is a great dentist. He not only makes you feel at ease, he is also gentle with his work, patient, and very friendly. He makes the dentist enjoyable to come to. His assistants are also very nice and great at what they do. I’m glad I found him as a regular dentisr! They accept medical as well.

Lilie N. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ken has been taking care of my family for years, but I only recently became his patient. He seems like a very honest and kind dentist. My dad refuses to ever go to the dentist, but Dr. Ken is the first dentist my dad finally feels comfortable with, which makes me very happy. I’d have to say that this dentist really works to serve his community. I have many friends going into dentistry who would never work in cities that serve low-income patients. They can easily make more money elsewhere to charge much more. I recently quit my full-time job to return back to school and have no dental insurance. Dr. Ken takes patients without dental coverage at a very reasonable price. He also only recommends procedures that are necessary so that you can save money. I highly recommend this dentistry, and vouch that they hold true to their philosophy of being an “honest, quality and affordable dentistry”.

Anna P.  from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ken is the best! I went to different dental groups in the past and they told me I needed about $3000 worth of work. They said I needed to have all my composite fillings redone, fill in some cavities and the list went on. I couldn’t believe the amount of work I needed because I thought my teeth were in excellent condition. I decided to go to Dr. Ken for a second opinion. Surprise, surprise! I did not have to redo any of my fillings and I didn’t have one single cavity!! All I needed was a cleaning. I could not believe the other dental practice wanted to do massive amounts of work, when I didn’t need anything besides a routine cleaning. Dr. Ken has his own practice and does not have the corporate mentality or the need to meet any quotas set for that day. He is honest, fair and reasonable. I will never go anywhere else after my experiences in all the “fancy” corporate dental offices. They will use scare tactics and instill fear to meet their daily quotas.

Van H. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I did the crowning with him, then cleaning and root canal treatment. All of them was in the last 7 months. I was looking for a good dentist – in my own way – and he matched it well. He is careful, friendly and professional. i introduced him to my family and my friends because i know how hard to find a good dentist that you can think about immediately once you need a dental treatment. Thanks Dr. Ken…

Sunny B. from San Fernando, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to different dentists over the years. I have seen different prices from different dentists. A dentist in a higher income zip code will charge much higher for the same work done because the market supports it. I have found Dr. Tran prices to be very fair and the quality of work done is very good. He seems to be a person who takes pride in his work. He takes the time to make sure each filling is shaped perfectly so that your bite is comfortable. I have recommended friends and relatives to his office and they are all satisfied customers. So if you are looking for a dentist who does quality work at a fair price this is the place for you.

Ann N. from Ontario, CA (Source: Yelp)


After a really baaad experience with another dentist closer to home (we’re talking down the street from my house), I looked up Dr. Tran and saw positive reviews, so I thought, “Hey, it has to only get better after what I just went through, right?” Total 180 is saying it mildly. Dr. Tran’s front office staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and thorough. His facility is nice and clean, with ample parking. Dr. Tran listened as I ranted on and on about my horrible prior experience and answered the million questions I asked of him. He is completely polite and knows his craft. He is NOT in it for the money, which is not what I’m used to at all. My last dentist said that I needed a root canal and I had 4 cavities that needed to be drilled and filled (I hadn’t been to the dentist in 8 years, but daaang!!!). He insisted on using the white fillings instead of amalgam, even though I told him that my insurance only covers white for front teeth and that I was ok with amalgam on my back teeth, and he acted like he wouldn’t do it if I didn’t go his way. He also told me I badly needed a gum irrigation. My bill was going to be over $2000, none of which my insurance would have covered. When I told Dr. Tran this, he explained to me that the “root canal” I needed was simply a cavity that needed to be filled and maybe kept an eye on. My “4 cavities” must have magically disappeared, because Dr. Tran couldn’t find what I was talking about. The closest thing was that I had 4 amalgam fillings present (that did NOT need to be changed, whatsoever). That “gum irrigation” that I so desperately needed? Dr. Tran told me that only people with gingivitis NEED those, and that I obviously didn’t. Dr. Tran told me it was my choice between which filling property I wanted to use, and told me the pros and cons of each when I inquired, and never once did he try to push ANYTHING on me. He was completely respectful and truthful, and I came out paying out of pocket whatever my insurance didn’t on my one cavity. I highly recommend Dr. Ken Tran, he’s an excellent dentist, and I used to drive 45 minutes to see him (totally worth it) before my dental insurance changed, and he was no longer covered under my plan 🙁
