Jalina R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Growing up, dental visits were always intimidating. Every time I was due for a check up, I felt very anxious. I spent years looking for a dentist that would provide a better experience for my family. The dentists and staff at Clear Comfort Dental take their time to give special care to each patient. They respect your appointment time, give quality service, and do everything they can to provide you with a positive experience. I bring my whole family here because I trust them with my dental health and general well being.

Dr. Quan and her team are a true first class act. She has one of the best dental offices in Los Angeles County and her staff is extremely friendly and professional. She is very knowledgeable, patient and understanding of her patient’s needs. Before meeting Dr. Quan and her staff, I was fearful of pain from the dental drill and avoided the dentist. Dr. Quan and her staff were very sensitive of my concerns, thus, I no longer have to fear the dental chair.  On top of that, her new office has top of the line equipment. I highly recommend Dr. Quan and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!

Karen Q. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Quan is absolutely amazing! She really knows what she is doing and takes the time to make sure the patients are always comfortable. She did a very thorough job cleaning my teeth and at the same time gentle. She was very understanding and friendly throughout the entire process; I would recommend her 100%! Another bonus was her state of the art office. I’ve been to a few other dental offices before and I’ve never seen any of them with tempur-pedic massaging chairs. Simple a very impressive office with all the latest dentistry equipment. I would recommend all my friends and family to her!

Aimee J. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Clear Comfort for about three years for my annual cleanings and a cavity filling procedure. They have great staff who is knowledgeable and kind. The place is very clean and sanitary. They do not try to push any unnecessary procedures and always take the time to explain any problematic areas or concerns. I highly recommend!

Lorna T. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate going to the dentist. I hate and dread it so much, I put it off for many years. It absolutely terrifies me. My blood pressure shoots up, my anxiety spikes, and I’m stuck in a cognitive loop of trying to think of multiple other unpleasant things I could be doing instead to try to minimize the pain and fear. But I will not have nightmares about this place. Dr Quan, her hygienist Arlene (such an angel!), and her assistant were so patient with me, and did an amazing job babying my coward ass every step of the way. Arlene will talk you through each step of the novocaine shot process without any surprises, and has her own technique that makes it significantly less painful than any other dentist place I’ve ever been to. She also checks in on you frequently during the whole ordeal to make sure you’re still pain free during the actual procedure. Even their receptionist has a way of putting you at ease with how she speaks to you. I still dread the dentist. But at least now, I’m more likely to follow through with my annual check ups.

Alfredo R. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great customer service they make you feel at ease whenever you show up. Providers are professional and explain everything to you in detail. Staff is outstanding they will go above and beyond to make sure you have a positive experience. Dental hygienist is amazing very professional and courteous.

Mike V. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Quan for quite sometime now and wanted to take the time to acknowledge one of the best dental offices around. Not only are they good with adults they also do a wonderful job with Children. My son loves it here, they don’t make him cry and are very concerned about making every visit as comfortable as possible. It’s more then just a business and is noticed through their work ethic, they actually care about their patients. Scheduling is always a breeze, Gloria at the front desk always goes above and beyond to make sure everything is as simple as possible, she works around our availability making accommodations that suit us with our busy work and School schedules. Thank you Clear Comfort Dental.

Veronica T. from Fontana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Clear Comfort Dental for more than 6 years. Dr. Quan and her staff have been amazing. Everyone is very professional. The facility is very clean, the equipment is high tech, and I never have to wait more than 10 minutes for my routine checkup. I brought my husband and mother in law about 4 years ago and they’ve been coming here ever since. I highly recommend Clear Comfort Choice to everyone that is looking for a good friendly dentist.

Steven W. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient for two years and I love this place! I love the atmosphere the vibe and the optimism that each member of the dental team brings! Everyone is very friendly, caring, and passionate about good dental hygiene! They all are very warm and welcoming and take you step by step of each procedure! Parking is easy and it’s never too long of a wait!

Gloria B. from Lynwood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Quan and her staff are great been coming to her for many years now and even my family members love coming here too. Always fun to visit the office and talk with the staff. Everyone is so friendly and personable. They are very gentle with the work they perform as well. 🙂

Bertha V. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Quan and staff are perfection! Very professional and nice. I live in Burbank and make the drive. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Dr. Quan is so gentle and I feel like a have a million dollar smile every time I leave here. If your looking for a great dentist I highly recommend coming here .

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


Dr. Quan and her team are simply the best! I have been her patient for probably the past 7-8 years including at her previous location at Redondo Beach. I don’t know what took me so long to give her a 5 star review that she so deserves! Dr. Quan is ever so gentle during any sort of treatment and always makes sure that I’m comfortable and not in any pain. She and her staff are thorough, thoughtful and detail-oriented when it comes to handling insurance, billing and claims. She’s also very honest and cares for the patient’s best interests as opposed looking out for her own pockets and push services that one doesn’t need which I’ve experienced at other dental offices. So, all and all. I love Dr. Quan and my teeth are happy and healthy!

Irene N. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never been a fan of the dentist, like most others. But Dr. Quan has such a quality about her that helps put you at ease with your past feelings (whether it be nervousness, fear, or whatever other feeling you’ve associated with dentists because of your past experiences with them). She is very detail oriented and thorough and I truly appreciate the time she puts in with each of her patients. She isn’t overbooked/over scheduled. So you’re not waiting long periods of time. She’s very understanding and patient. And it’s nice to see that quality emanates to her support staff too. They too are super friendly and helpful. Her office has state of the art equipment. The downside is Dr. Quan is only there certain days, I haven’t had the chance to be seen by the other dentist who is in the same office. Oh yeah, and limited parking in the back, may need to park on the street. Definitely recommending her to my family!

Anh T. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thanks to yelp , I’ve found an awesome dentist. I love Dr. Quan. She’s the sweetest lady ever. I switched to her because my old dentist from another company was not as compassionate. She makes you feel at ease before working on you. She’s gentle and is always making sure you feel comfortable. My dentist appointment is something that I don’t fear anymore. Her receptionist is awesome. The lady always have the biggest smile on her face when you come in. It makes me feel welcome. She isn’t gossiping with other coworkers like my old dentist’s office. She is busy on the phone and filing stuff. I appreciate her positive attitude and bubbly personality. Nothing gets the best of her.

Cari C. from Montebello, CA (Source: Yelp)


Like many i avoid the dentist as much as i avoid the doctors office. Then today happen where i needed to find a excellent dentist and in a hurry. After reading many yelp reviews I stumble upon Clear Choice Dental. I’ll be honest this was not the first place I called to assist me in my emergency (broken tooth) and especially as a new patient. Many turned me away like a stray animal but not here. The staff was professional, polite and honest even when I arrived at my scheduled appointment. Thank you so much! I hate to say it but you might have a long term customer on your hands.

Karen K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Quan! She has such a warm chairside manner, and I really feel like she cares about me as a patient. The staff always welcomes me with a huge smiles, and I never have to wait very long. They seem genuinely concerned about their patients’ general health and wellbeing and always go out of their way to explain everything thoroughly and put me at ease. I am consistently impressed by their attention to detail, their focus during a procedure, and kindness throughout. It sounds corny, but I really do always get compliments on my teeth (how straight and white they are). I owe those compliments to Dr. Quan! I currently live almost 45 minutes away but will continue to go to Dr. Quan for the excellent service!

Joanie H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


i went in for my first cavity filling today. was really nervous. i made the mistake of googling online while i was waiting in the front lobby. i was searching for other people’s experience, wanting to know if it was painful or not. i sat in the dental chair expecting to be poked with a needle. the second i got into the chair, Dr. Cherine Quan squirted a topical anesthetic on my gums. i immediately felt like she left some sort of stick there in my mouth. i soon realize that was the numbing agent i was already feeling. and from that point on, i didn’t feel any needle at all (im pretty sure she poked me). i just want to say this was a painless experience. Dr Quan was very professional, she took her time and was detailed oriented with my cavity filling procedure. I appreciate Dr. Quan always asking me if i feel ok. im really happy Clear Choice is my dental office. all the staff are friendly and i feel i can trust them. i’ve been to shaddy dental cleanings before, and i walk out of those places feeling and knowing i don’t want to go back. but clear choice is far from that. i would highly recommend anyone, esp. my friends and family coming here. anyways, thanks for a good dental experience.

Andrew L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Google)


Clean and modern dental office. Massaging dental chair is a cool feature!! It helped calm down my nervousness when I heard the sound of the drill. 🙂 Office staff was very professional, friendly & thoroughly answered all of my questions. Dr. Quan has gentle hands when working on you. If anyone is looking for an incredibly competent, patient-focused dentist go see Dr. Cherine Quan! She and her staff are awesome and will genuinely take care of your dental needs.

Dan K. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Quan really takes the time to understand your needs. she took x-rays to show you the issues and gave me options. I hate when the dentist drills and when i make that painful sound … i hate when they say “almost done.. just little more..etc. etc… ” well.. GREAT THING… dr. quan stops immediately and numbs you up…! i would advise not to get too much numbness.. you tend to bite your cheeks afterwards…. but the fact that she is willing to stop and make sure you are in NO pain…..come on.. thats gotta be 5 stars…parking can be a issue if you dont know the area. you can always park on the back ally or near the ally and call them to open the back for you. Staff are great… TONI at the front love to chat and try to help you with any insurance issues. very clean place, chairs are comfy !! i wore my sun glasses the whole time so that i didnt have to stare at the light. hope this review helps.

I think we have a very smart dentist here with a lot of good business sense. I am always delighted when Dr. Quan is present to clean my teeth. I know she makes it as painless as possible. But the other hygenist is also very good and painless. I am also happy she is in network dentist. The staff are also very helpful.

Having just moved back to Monterey Park from living in San Francisco for the past 13 years, I was in need of a local dentist.  I was happy to find a new dentist office open in my neighborhood.  I think there was a dental office there before but it has now been taken over by a new doctor named Dr. Cherine Quan.  I went in for a dental cleaning and to my relief I was completely satisfied with my cleaning and very happy I found my new dentist!  The cleaning was probably the best I’ve ever had.  My x-ray process was pleasant and not uncomfortable.  Since the office is brand new, I think it was because all of the dental equipment is the newest and latest technology.  In the past, although my cleanings never hurt from my other doctor, I would however feel some minor picks from the denist and the equipment.  During my annual check-up examination and cleaning, Dr, Quan’s hands were steady and I never felt any uncomfortable pricks and the new water cleaning machine she used felt like soft cushions of air (not stinging water streams like I experienced with my other doctor).  I was completely satisfied with the entire visit!  I asked the office to contact my former doctor in San Francisco to transfer my files, and they were able to do that for me and now I know all my dental records are in one place and this office has my dental medical history.  The office is brand new and clean.  The staff is professional and very nice.  Dr. Quan is very pleasant and gave me recommendations on my dental health that were insighful and knowledgeable.  She recommended a dental procedure I was thinking of doing with my smile but never got done but after the exam she knew exactly what should be done for continued good dental health and personal satisfaction.  I am completely satisfied and would recommend this office to anyone.

Been a patient for several years and had done regular and deep cleaning as well as a few cavities filled. Dr. Cherine Quan is fantastic – gentle hands and excellent bedside manner. They email and text appointment reminders too which is nice. The office is spotless and fresh. Everyone is professional and friendly. I moved away and will have to find a different dentist now which is a real bummer and brings me to write this review. Thank you Dr. Quan and Team. You took the cringe out of dental work.

Yoandra V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been looking all over south bay for a dentist. I had a bad toothache and they took me in right away. Their office is very clean and it doesn’t have this dentist smell (I cant describe it but many dentists I have been to have this bad dentist smell to it). If anything, this place smells like flowers and I love it. The seats are very comforting and they play pop music to get your mind off the fact that you might go through some pain. The first visit told me I needed a root canal and while they don’t do that there, they refer me to another office who did a great job. They also told me my dental history and any issues that may come up in the future which I liked because I can then do what I need to do to prevent them. I also appreciate their efforts to make my visits as pain free as possible and they even explain what’s happening so I don’t feel afraid. By the way, if you are afraid of the dentist, it helps to ask them to explain the procedure as it happens so you know what’s going on. Overall, this is my dentist now and I am happy to have one.

Brianna J. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had another great visit at Clear Comfort Dental! I have been coming to this office for my routine check-ups, fillings, and I previously had my wisdom teeth pulled here. Toni the receptionist is very helpful, so kind, and always goes the extra mile to make sure I have all my questions answered to my satisfaction; you can tell she has worked in the field a long time and really knows the office, as well as how to treat customers with a lot of respect and professionalism. I don’t live near by, but I do make the effort to drive over to this office because I value the honesty and dental care that Dr. Quan provides. Thanks again!!

Natalie S. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Dr. Quan for many years now and I have always received excellent service! My visits are always very thorough and all my questions are explained in great detail. The staff is very lovely and I would not trust anyone else to take care of dental needs!
Thank you Dr. Quan! You truly are the BEST!

Phillip H. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing staff! the wonderful hygienist who gave my teeth the best cleaning of their life! Dr Quan was great, responded to my concerns in a compassionate manner and made me feel extremely comfortable. If you hate going to the dentist, this is the place to go! I didn’t feel a thing during my cleaning and I’m the worse at handling these things calmly. Highly recommended!!

Mary L. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an implant done for a tooth that was badly patched by a previous dentist. After about a year of work on getting the implant, I think I have the most wonderful functioning tooth. Dr. Quan and her staff are great in customer service and handling of billing. Dr. Quan always seeks out the best for the client e.g. for root canal she sent me to a root canal specialist as my tooth might have been cracked. Then she put in a crown. Now my teeth have greatly improved from the previous cleaning due to use of electrical toothbrush and proper diet and frequent cleaning. It is not easy to find a good dentist so I am keeping Dr. Quan.

Steven F. from Los Angeles, C (Source: Yelp)


Awesome customer service at Clear Choice Dental, they even allow you to make appointments online. I needed to have my teeth examined because I like many people haven’t gone to a dentist in a long time. I made my appointment the night before, and got a response in the morning with an open spot during the afternoon. I called Clear Choice to make an appointment and Toni helped me out. When I arrived, it was a pretty standard procedure for new patients where you fill out the application and all that. Went into the room, had my teeth xrayed and Dr. Quan gave me a breakdown of what was wrong, what was needed, and the team showed great patience and were able to answer any questions I had. I was out of the office within 30-40 mins, Toni helped me out with the estimates for the stuff I needed to help fix my teeth in the future.

Therese L. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just want to thank you again Dr. Quan! I love teasing you by asking you, “Have you started?”, when in fact the procedure or cleaning is already complete. Just had silver fillings replaced with resin based composite and I need to really stress this to all… When Dr. Quan is numbing you, you can not feel anything. Not even a prick. At least this is how I felt. I even had two small replacements where she did not numb my tooth because she is that precise with the equipment. She has calm, gentle and steady hands. Wonderful assistants and front office staff too. Thank you again! See you for the mid year cleaning!

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


My first time here. First parking is easy to find on the street in front of the building. Second the waiting room is clean and cool(loving the A/C). The receptionist was super nice. Just waiting for my appointment now, if it’s your first time here make sure to come a little early to fill out the application

Lourdes M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been terrified of going to the dentist to hear that drilling sound when it’s just a clean up (who isn’t) but this was different!! Dr. Quan and her staff were great at getting me through the deep cleaning and cavities with zero pain. As soon as I started feeling pain or sensitivity I raised my hand they they would either stop, adjust their angle, or use a different approach to get their job done. I walked out and drove home and their recommendations worked wonders. I will be a loyal patient now and recommend them to anyone who needs an honest dentist. She doesn’t try to sell you things you don’t need. I have a slight cross bite on one side which involves all of two teeth and the rest of my bite is perfect. She recommended I don’t mess with it because it would be a waste of money.

Susan L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The mere smell of a dentist’s office induces the nervous poops in my bowels. One whiff and I’ll get flashbacks to when I was kid…drilling, drooling, my dentist not meaning to but totally hurting me and scarring me for life. Because of this fear, I have searched high and low for a dentist that does quality work AND also cares about my feelings (my teeth mostly, and by association my heart). And, I have found her! In the past few years, I have gone in for acute problems, routine maintenance as well as cosmetic procedures. Whether a small or not so small problem, I have left the office happy each time. I am generally hard to impress. Within the first couple visits though, I knew I had a keeper. TOP 5 REASONS WHY I LOVE DR. QUAN 5) She is punctual (let’s face it, most doctors run late) 4) She never makes you feel rushed or gives you the feeling that your chair time is up. 3) She is good at what she does…I can tell by her physical exam. She’s thorough and asks questions based on what she sees (and not by coincidence, the very same questions that are lurking in your brain) 2) She asks what your concerns are and she explains what’s going on (you know you’ve had that doctor that didn’t explain much to you) 1) SHE ASKS IF YOU ARE DOING OKAY DURING THE PROCEDURE AND MANAGES YOUR PAIN if you have any. Two thumbs up!! Before Dr. Quan, I’ve never had a dentist ask me if I was hurting…they would see me wince, know that what they were doing was painful, and/or ignore me and then say OPEN WIDER! The extra bonus is her a-mazing office. I would totally forgo a luxurious office for a competent practitioner. But in this case, I get the entire package. Quality care delivered with TLC and a cherry on top!

Honestly the best place for all of your dental needs. Yes, I’m your typical girl that dreads going to the dentist, will put it off for years, then only go because I let it get that bad. But since I started going here, I never hesitate to make my appointments to come back. Reasons why I would drive from Cerritos, sit through the 5 fwy traffic, to come all the way to Monterey Park for this place: -Always punctual: rarely any bit of a wait, they’ve even taken me when I was early to my appointment -Emails & texts: they send you emails confirming your appointments and send reminder texts two hours before your appointment. -Updated with the best technology: MASSAGE CHAIRS – the patient chair comes with a soft, slow back massage! The equipment is all up to date and allows for efficiency – from the x ray machine to the blood pressure monitor. -Listens to your concerns: they will actually listen to you and thoroughly explain what they suggest is best. -Best part of it all, they are a true team of skilled professionals! They really know what they’re doing, puts you at ease, makes sure you’re comfortable, and minimizes any pain possible. Throughout any procedure, they CONSTANTLY ask how you’re feeling. They adjust to your comfort – like numb the area more, try a different angle or method, etc. -Post visit care: they make sure you are fully equipped with materials and information before you leave. They break it down and advise how to take care of yourself. There’s no dental place like this – comforting, skilled professionals in a nice, modern office with the newest equipment and technology.

Dr. Quan has been my dentist for several years and have been going to her before she moved to Monterey Park.  Before I was terrified to go to the dentist office and delayed all my visits and cleanings.  But once Dr. Quan worked on me for the first time – I can honestly say that I actually ENJOY going to the dentist especially with the great care that she gives to me.  I’ve had several deep cleanings along with other procedures done by herself and I have yet to feel any type of pain.  It’s more of a massage for my teeth and gums!  I recommended Dr. Quan to my whole family – mom, dad, and uncle so far have gone and have been pleasantly surprised of her work and care.  Whenever I have someone ask if I know a good dentist; I quickly respond by saying..”YES!”  The office is very clean and modern; and also very comfortable to be in.  Keep up the great work Dr. Quan and staff!!


I was born and raised in southern California. I received my undergraduate degree in Neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). I then went on to pursue my dental degree from Boston University Henry Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 2003. After dental school, I further enhanced my education by completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at Temple University in Philadelphia. Upon completing my residency program in 2004, I decided to return to my hometown of Los Angeles to start my dental career. I initially worked for a dentist with more than 20 years of experience. Motivated to start my own dental practice, I opened my first office in Torrance, California in 2006 and remained there for 5 years. In 2011, I opened the doors to my second and current practice in Monterey Park, California. This newly remodeled, state-of-the-art dental office provides the latest in dental technology, allowing me to offer current advancements to all of my patients. I am proud to welcome patients to my practice where I am able to provide the best in both patient care and clinical results. I have received special training in areas of cosmetic dentistry, including Lumineers, Invisalign®, Clear Correct and Snap-on-Smile. I am highly experienced in working with young children as early as 18 months of age. I am a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association and the San Gabriel Dental Society. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
