Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Portia D. from Chino, CA (Source: Yelp)


We’ve known Dr. Lin for over 20+ years. We were fortunate enough to find him in one of the Japanese journal issues.  His first office was in Hacienda Heights for few years then he moved.  After he moved we tried another dr. who took over the office.  After our first appointment with the new  dr.,  my husband and I told each other that we must find out where he is now.  Luckily we found him In San Gabriel even though it’s almost a 2 hour’s drive for us. We still insist on going after that and he has been our dentist since. His level of professionalism and expertise  simply cannot be compared to others.  He expresses genuine concerns about his patient and approaches it with kindness of which I can say others lack.  He treated us just like friends.  You can ask any health questions and he always answers you in a friendly and enthusiastic way.  We take our health very importantly and I can say for certain that our standards are definitely high.  He is the one we can totally trust and rely on from bottom of our hearts.  His service simply does not end there. He encourages patients and teaches patients about prevented care. He’s also given his patients mouth wash to promote good oral hygiene if you are doing the periodical teeth cleaning twice a year.  We also have absolutely no complaints about his staff as well who are professional, kind, and courteous. We would like to congratulate him on his new beautiful and spacious office along with all the kind nurses and assistants.  The big screen tv’s available is also a plus to help ease all your nerves when he’s working on your teeth. This is my first yelp review and I will honestly say from the bottom of my heart, I whole heartedly recommend Dr. Lin for your dental needs.

What does an excellent dentist look like? Come to see Dr. Lin in Arcadia and feel it! The wonderful dentist spends his time to talk your teeth, care your concern, repair your defects, even those troublemakers that bothered you so many years and you already forgot they are actually still so annoying. A wonderful dentist will also extend his care of maximizing your deserved benefits and minimizing your out of pocket cost of your dental care. Come to see Dr. Lin! I am sure finally you will smile more often  like me to show those professionally cared teeth!

Finally got the chance to go back to get my teeth cleaned. Due to the pandemic, Dr. Lin’s dental office is taking extreme precautions to eliminate any possibility of contracting the virus. They checked for my temperature and offered gloves for me to wear before walking in. They carefully wiped the chair with disinfectants and are super on-point with their cleanliness. The experience with Dr. Lin was fantastic as usual. He’s such a knowledgable guy and super easy to talk to. His personality and office experience make me look forward to every dental visit.

Ricky H. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been meaning to write my review for Dr. Lin for a long time.  So here it is. I have been going to Dr. Lin for more than 10 years.  He is exceptionally thorough in explaining and performing his procedures.  He is very attentive to your needs.  He cleans your teeth so well that my teeth are like brand-new after each cleaning.  He’s done my root canal since years ago.  The tooth has shown no issue at all. Over the years, we have become a bit closer in patient-doctor relationship and talk about family, vacation etc.  I look forward to seeing him and really enjoy chatting with him before he starts his treatment. I have 100% confidence in him and have no intention of going anywhere else for my dental needs.   His office is very clean all the time.  His staff is extremely nice and friendly, not to mention professional. I am so grateful to have Dr. Lin as my dentist.  He is, no doubt, the best dentist I have ever known. Please go to him and you will know!

Visiting dentist has never been a fun experience for me. The high pitch noise from the machine and the soreness of the teeth/gums after each cleaning keep me from going. After 3-4 years of procrastination, I finally drag myself to see a dentist. I found Dr. Lin from yelp, with all the great reviews n the location (close to where I live). I’ve decided to give it a try and I’m so glad I did!!! Pros: 1. Dental office: Bright and clean, with a spacious check-in area, makes me feel less nervous 2. Staffs are very nice and attentive, trying to address any concerns n things that the dentist might need to pay attention on 3. The exam rooms are spacious, TV was install in every room with variety of shows/movies to choose from. I get to watch movie while Dr. Lin cleans my teeth! That really helps ease my nervousness.  4. Dr. Lin is very attentive, patience, and detail oriented. He takes time to explain the condition of my teeth, addressees the concerns I have, and explain every steps of the way. 5. I was given a lot of goodies at the end!! I would say, I will never afraid of visiting dentist again (if the dentist is Dr. Lin~~)

May L. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was on the search for a new dentist a few months back and my brother recommended his workout buddy who also happened to be a dentist. I had my most of my wisdom teeth extracted several years ago but started feeling sore where a new one was emerging. Was also due for a teeth cleaning since I hadn’t seen a dentist for at least two years. His office staff was friendly and efficient; I was on the exam chair within minutes of filling out paperwork. Met Dr Lin and had the most informative dental appointment ever. He is not only professional and knowledgeable but also dedicated to educating his clients. Never knew that a history of having braces would cause teeth sensitivity and receding gums, problems I’ve been experiencing for years (thought I was just orally unlucky). You can tell Dr Lin is passionate about dentistry by the way he talks and lives by it. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think I recall him saying that he hasn’t had a cavity in nearly 50 years, or maybe even ever. ? Aside from filling my mind with all things dental, he was gentle yet thorough during the teeth cleaning, constantly making sure I was doing okay. The appointment took longer than expected but I didn’t feel rushed even when he had to see his next patient. Before leaving, the receptionist gave a detailed explanation of the bill, a crash course on how to use the waterpik (which i already own and should really use more often =X), and also a large goodie bag filled with mouthwashes (full sized bottles), toothpastes, toothbrushes, and floss. Hands down the best dentist I’ve ever been to. Highly recommended!

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


Dr. Lin is so responsive and considerate. I’ve had my teeth pain for a while and consult to have an appointment scheduled with him over the yelp chat. He asks me to describe my symptoms and take a picture of the areas that’s bothering me. After I send those in, within an hour he diagnosed my problem and refer me to an Oral Surgeon to get my problem treat faster. All within yelp app, without me going to his office at all. I can really feel he puts my healthy at first. Thank you so much Dr.Lin, much appreciated!

Kevin C. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


Truly a pleasurable experience. I was recommended by a good friend who I was going on about finding the best dentist in the area. As soon as I stepped into their office, my jaw dropped. It was extremely modern. They had a nicely designed office, drinks, and shows while you have your teeth worked on. First thing I noticed was that their interior was extremely modern. The front desk was quick and helpful. Stepping into the room, all devices were new, modern, and very clean. The dentist here was different from past experiences. They made sure to teach me how to improve my dental health. They could tell the way I floss and brush my teeth by looking at my teeth and gum health. Their advice was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The most happy thing with my experience was that the dentist was more thorough in his cleaning. In the past, I felt like my dentist did a quick job and got messy. My dentist, David, was extremely careful and thorough with his work. He was aware of sensitive area in the mouth and was very careful. It was better than all the past dentists I went with. To sum it up, I really am pleased with my experience. Definitely worth the visit and will be coming back in the future.

Sandy L. from Baldwin Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family loves Dr. Lin.  He is such a fantastic dentist.  Dr. Lin examined my teeth problems very careful. He resolved the issues and took his time to show me the best practices for dental hygiene.  His team is professional, friendly and very helpful.   My children generally don’t like going to the dentist, but Dr. Lin and his staff have made dentist visits a breeze.

Michelle K. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been going to Dr. Lin for years and are always extremely satisfied with the service. Speaking for me personally, I’ve always hated going to the dentist because I usually leave with severe pain. However, with Dr. Lin, I can’t wait for my check ups! Pros: – Dr. Lin and his staff are very welcoming. As soon as you enter, everyone greets you. They take very good care of you and never rush to get you out. They are great at listening to any issues you may have. – Dr. Lin always tells you to let him know if you’re in pain or if your teeth are sensitive. This is a HUGE pro since now, I never leave the dentist with severe mouth pain. – Dr. Lin makes a huge effort to get to know his patients. At every check up, he always asks how my school and career are going. He even remembers the details!! – At the end of your visit, his team always gives you a bag of goodies, which usually includes 2 mouthwashes, floss, toothbrush, toothpaste, a reusable bag, and during holidays, he hands out other gifts. Very caring and super generous. – Service is always spectacular! Dr. Lin and his team are very professional, they take their time, and they like to educate their patients on their teeth and gum health. Additional pros (for me at least) is that they are flexible with scheduling, have refreshments for patients waiting, and also have Netflix and Hulu in their office to keep patients entertained. Thank you Dr. Lin and staff for all you do and for the impeccable service!

Penelope W. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Upon entering I was greeted by Rena, who was super friendly and gave me directions on filling out my info/disclosures so I wouldn’t be lost. I was then immediately taken to a room for X-ray. I loved that the staff was respectful of my time. Usually at other dental offices, I’d wait 10-15mins to be seen by the dentist. After settling me in a room, a staff member asked what I’d prefer to watch, as they have Hulu, Netflix, etc! Wow how cool is that? Needless to say, time flew by super fast when my eyes were being occupied. As far as my consultation with Dr Lin goes, he was very detailed and went over with me all my concerns and also suggestions on what he felt might best suit me. I felt that he sincerely cared about my overall well being rather than trying to upsell me like most other dental establishments. I’ve visited numerous dentists and though many were nice, I just didn’t feel the kind of sincerity that I got at Dr Lin’s office. Even in the end when Rena had to go over pricing and insurance with me, she mentions that they’ll take care of everything so I don’t have to contact my insurance for anything else. At the time of my visit I was switching between dental insurances and what could have been a hassle for me was fortunately absorbed by the assistants’ of Dr Lin. Overall, I was super satisfied with my visit to Dr Lin’s office. They even have coffee and juice for when you’re waiting or if you brought kids! The office was also sparkling clean which I feel reflects everyone there’s overall hygiene. And oh! I never had to call the office, they can communicate through text message which is amazing for people who work a 9-5 job and don’t have the time to wait to speak with the dental assistants over the phone. Would definitely recommend Dr Lin’s office! You won’t regret it!

Joann D. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just finished a cleaning with Dr. Lin and I’m impressed. I plan to move my entire family here. And I will recommend my family and friends. There’s Netflix in every room and you can watch to your hearts delight. Reina at the front desk is such a pleasure. She was kind enough to watch my 4 yr old daughter during my cleaning. Regarding the actual cleaning, Dr. Lin does it himself! And he was so gentle. I have sensitive teeth/gums and it didn’t hurt a bit. I was going to Parklane Dental on Baldwin last year and although Dr. To is a great dentist (I recommend his work), I’m not a fan of his billing manager Grace. Let’s just say her customer service is nonexistent. So, BYE!! Anyway, I’m so glad I found Dr. Lin! If you’re looking for someone new I highly recommend him.

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


Office is very neat and clean! Dr Lin is very professional! My teeth cleaning was not painful at all like before at other places. He did a very thorough job on my teeth and gave a detailed explanation on how to take good care of them. I had some questions about kids teeth, and he was very patient on all my questions! He also gave me very honest opinions when it comes to teeth whitening. Very highly recommended and would definitely come back for my teeth maintenance. 🙂

Kimberly H. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. David is the absolute best! His office is super clean, the waiting room has coffee, tea, and juice, and every room has a tv where they give you the remote so you can watch Netflix while Dr. David performs. I came in for the first time in May. The staff were super friendly and attentive. Once I saw Dr.David, we took X-Ray’s and he deep cleaned my teeth. The whole process was only an hour long. The cool thing about Dr. David is he will go through the X-rays with you, then he’ll show you, with a mirror, where the problem areas are with your teeth. Once I was done, I set up my next appointment with Rena, who works front desk. She was super friendly and was able to find a date for my next appointment that would accommodate my schedule. She told me I could get my appointment reminders through text which is awesome! I signed my paperwork and she handed me a bag of goodies (mouthwash, floss, toothbrush).   Thank you Dr. David, Rena, and staff!

Chanpen B. from Highland, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is my first Yelp review!! Dr. Lin is wonderful! My family has known Dr. Lin for many years. Words can’t describe how kind, genuine, and caring he is. He is very thorough with his examination and explain his findings via digital x-rays.  I’m afraid of needles, I mean really afraid of needles. Dr. Lin is the only doctor I’ve ever experienced that gave painless anesthetic injections.    My mother has been with Dr. Lin for almost 20 years. I’ve brought my two little ones here as well. Both of my children adores him. They talk about him while they are brushing their teeth and gurgling with ACT mouthwash he had given them on their last visit. His office staff are most polite, and very nice. We always feel welcome. His office is modern and very clean.  Dr. Lin is more than a Dentist. Five stars are not enough to give. I would give a hundred stars if I could. Looking forward to many more years to come.

Jeffrey C. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


My first visit with Dr. Lin was nothing short of exceptional. The details, kindness, knowledge, and professionalism he exhibited are something you rarely encounter and I appreciated all of his and his staffs work. To be honest, I can’t recall a medical appointment that I’ve left saying to myself “wow, that was great.” lol He comes off as genuine, honest, and helpful and really spends the time to explain things and you can tell during the treatment that he really cares. You get protective glasses during your treatment which is a really nice touch. I can’t tell you how many times as a child going to the dentist that I had water and whatever else that was coming out of my mouth sprinkle onto my face which would always make me squint or close my eyes lol. All in all, everything was pretty perfect – the place is immaculate and well designed with great amenities. The staff are attentive and work well together and you get a generally positive vibe. Would absolutely recommend to anyone and everyone.

I walked out with a big smile 🙂 . I came in for a deep cleaning. As I walked in I was greeted by a young lady who help me out with the paperwork before getting started, she was very nice and accommodating. The place was very elegant and clean , they also had complimentary drinks , which I thought was awesome. After finishing the paperwork David came out and greeted me, after a few minutes of talking with David I could sense that he was really passionate on what he did, and boy was I right about that. He took REALLY good care of me, made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole procedure, and took his time to explain and  teach me how to properly maintain my teeth. I could tell he cares a lot about his patients. Overall the whole experience was great and I am definitely looking forward for next year. What also made this whole experience great was the goody bag, This was one one of the best goody bags I got when visiting the dentist. So if you’re looking for a deep clean I would really recommend coming here. He’s a really easy to talk to guy who is very knowledgeable on what he does and really explains in depth and breaks it down for you. So don’t be shy, come through ,you won’t regret it

I don’t normally write Yelp reviews, but Dr. Lin is really too phenomenal of a dentist to not. My family has been using his services for as long as I remember– whereas the other kids would hate to go to the dentist, I never understood the negative rep. Dr. Lin was always incredibly kind, thoughtful, and friendly. His dental services are amazing, and he gives away an incredible amount of gifts to his patients. I always loved that he became more than just a doctor for us– every time we came in, we’d talk about updates in life or school or family. To top it all off, I even got to watch more TV and movies than I ever did at home. His new office is also amazing– Netflix on every TV (in every room, including the waiting room), free drinks (tea? coffee? juice? take your pick), and just a wonderful atmosphere (the ceiling has a painting of the sky on it. what more could you ask for?). The staff here are wonderful as always! Altogether, I can’t think of a single negative aspect of this place– and I know you’ll agree. Enough said.

Chau Y. from The Strip, Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr Lin has been my dentist for many years. He’s the best and most favorite family dentist. Everyone in my family sees him including my siblings, parents and our significant others. When I was a little girl, I was so traumatized with visits to the dentist. My experiences were never pleasant as I hated the sounds of the drill, scrapping and how the dentists would treat me until I met Dr Lin. There are so many things to brag about Dr Lin. He’s patient, takes time to listen to our concerns, connects with us on a personal level, gentle handling with our teeth, and takes time. I never feel rushed as he truly dedicates his time entirely with us during our visit. You will never get a dental assistant to work on your teeth as Dr Lin prides himself in patient care work that is world class. I absolutely look forward to my routine teeth cleaning now as an adult. I leave his office with nice pearly whites and ensuring I keep my dental hygiene to make him proud. Dr Lin is truly the best Dentist I have ever met. By the way his office is super clean and bright. Not to mention his staff are also trained with the highest level of professionalism with amazing customer service. Can’t wait for my next visit!!

Ying Y. from West Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had gone in for a consultation to get braces but since he no longer do braces, he was still willing to consult me on it. Apparently, I had periodontal disease and needed deep cleaning. I’ve done deep clean in the past and had trauma from it. Dr. Lin assured me it wasn’t painful that I would be ok and I was. He’s light handed and really takes his time on numbing you before he starts the procedure. Also Dr. Lin is very knowledgeable and professional. He cares a lot for his patients. The place is super clean with nextflix hooked into every room. The employee are super nice! The appointment time booked is reserved only for you. Everything about this place is AWESOME!! I’m really happy with my experience here and definitely recommend it!

Jocelynne D. from Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was looking for a dentist office near my workplace because I was having issues with my permanent retainer. I found Dr. Lin’s place and I am so happy that I did. The vibe in the office is welcoming and comfortable. The entire place is clean and bright…from the waiting room to the dentist chair. They take pride in keeping their office and work areas neat and clean. They even have big flat screen TV’s with Netflix and let you choose whatever movie you would like. (Great distraction if you need one). So I walk in and the staff acknowledge you right away. They are so attentive to your needs and do not rush you, they are all kind and polite. They even offered me something to drink while waiting for the dentist. So I waited for a consultation with Dr. Lin. Once he walked in he introduced himself, listened to my problem, and gave me options. He was very clear in what his plan was and even let me hold a mirror and look at his work, explaining exactly what he was doing and why. I appreciate the time he took to explain. He helped me feel not so nervous and also that he really knows what he’s doing. One thing I can say is a huge plus is the extra care he and the staff give to your comfort while in the dentist chair. Many other places I’ve been to press their hands down on your lips and/or let your lips get all dry while your having your procedure done and only attend to it when you say something. He and his staff didn’t let that happen. I will be directing all of my dental work to Dr. Lin’s Office.

They just recently reopened from shutting down for COVID in March. They had been closed for 3 months. They want to make sure to provide the safest environment for their patient and their staff. Mask is required to enter, and upon entering they offered me disposable vinyl gloves to wear for my safety and theirs. The staff also took my temperature for safety measures. They even have air purifier all around the dental office. I researched the brand of air purifier they used, it costs $300 on Amazon. Definitely high quality air purifier to provide a safe environment. Parking: there’s plenty of free parking spaces in the lot behind their building. Make sure to park there to avoid street parking on the busy street of Live Oak. I have been going to Dr. Lin for a year now. All their dental room are equipped with a smart TV and the staff will nicely offer you the remote for you to select a Netflix or Youtube show you prefer. Before dental procedure, an assistant will provide you with a plastic splash guard glasses for your eyes. To prevent any water splashing into your eyes. During the operation or teeth cleaning they will continue to let you play the show of your choice. Dr. Lin takes the time to explain procedures, and after teeth cleaning he will show you the areas that you need to improve on flossing, with a hand mirror. Before procedure, Dr. Lin will put vaseline on your lips to prevent your lips from cracking. Because there’s a doctor that’s this attention to detail and care, that’s why I always feel I accepted the best service at this dental office. They will also help you make the next appointment after the procedure. The front office ladies is always very nice as well. They always give a little parting gift after every teeth cleaning, which includes mouth washes, dental floss, tooth brush, and tooth paste. Highly recommend this place.

Marvy S. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Who doesn’t look forward to going to the dentist?  I don’t.  I’ve been to so many places and they have traumatized me because of the pain.  Luckily, I found Dr. Lin and I only go to him!! ::Experience:: My daughter and I have been going to Dr. Lin for about four years.  Dr. Lin is gentle, caring, and has light hands.  While he works on my teeth, he checks to see how I’m doing.  Any procedure, he is very thorough at explaining what he will be doing.  My daughter also feels comfortable with Dr. Lin.  After my daughter’s appointment, she gets to pick a prize from a basket.  The prizes are useful, fun, and cool.  He also makes great referrals if he is not able to do a procedure.  Everyone he recommended is great.  What I also like is how clean the place is! ::Customer Service:: Dr. Lin and the staff is very friendly.   ::Highlight:: -He has a new office now in Arcadia.  Everything is so clean and bright.  I like the decor and the big flat screen tv.  Also, above the ceiling is a nice painting that you can look at while getting your teeth done.  There is Netflix too!!
-The new office is so nice!  I love the decor.   I really have a fear of going to the dentist because of my past experiences.  Ever since I met Dr. Lin going to the dentist has been easier.  I 100% trust Dr. Lin. I’m so lucky I found him!! ::M’s Notes:: -Parking in the back

Aya R. from Brandywine, MD (Source: Yelp)


First let me preface this by saying that this is the first dentist appointment I’ve had in TWO whole years. (Don’t judge me, insurance is expensive man lol) Fortunately, my new job has great benefits so I decided to take full advantage of them as soon as I could. That, coupled with my long time fear of dentists and basically anything that has to do with potential pain, made me feel very anxious and apprehensive once I made this appointment. But, alas, I knew it had to be done. I came in to Dr. Lin’s office, nerves and all, and was warmly greeted by the front staff. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. I filled out a few forms since it was my first time, and it took less than 5 minutes to be seen. One of the best parts is that during your appointment, you get to watch Netflix. If all doctors offices had that option, I’m sure people would complain less about waiting lol. Not that I even had to wait long at all. Dr. Lin greeted me shortly after I sat down in the chair and both he and his assistant asked me if I had any concerns/pain/anything bothering me. He took time to address my concerns and made sure I was comfortable before proceeding with the cleaning. Every part of the appointment, he explained what he was about to do, so I never worried about what was coming next. All in all, he just seemed very caring, knowledgeable and skilled– you really can’t ask for more in a doctor! Lastly, when I got back to the front they gave me a breakdown of the appointment and what my insurance would be billed, and then they even gave me a huge bag of some full sized goodies (whitener mouthwash, fluoride rinse, toothpaste, tooth brush, floss, the works!) Hands down best dentist appointment ever. I know now that when I come to this dentist, I’m in good hands and I no longer need to be afraid. 🙂 Thanks for all you guys do!!!

Esther L. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been going to Dr. Lin for some time now and every time we get our teeth cleaned we leave with a bright white smile and a full heart! Everyone in the office is friendly and professional. The office space is very classy. Every time I walk in, it feels very comfortable but at the same time very high class. Every room has a tv that has Netflix and Hulu and other channels for you to catch up on your shows. What better way to utilize your time when you’re getting your teeth cleaned! There’s a large parking lot in the back of the office and a nice big waiting room with drinks to your liking. Dr. Lin is very personal and professional. He takes his time to make sure you have a healthy and clean smile. I recommend him to all my friends now.

Finally got to have my three month over due teeth cleaning from my favorite dentist Dr. Lin and his wonderful staff. Rest assured his office is equipped with state of the art  air purifiers through out the entire office and special type lights in the dental procedure rooms that eliminate any type of airborne impurities as well as other special equipment as prevention for the patient.  Thanks Dr. Lin as always your number 1!!

Charito L. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.David Lin is the best dentist, I’ve ever had! He is very passionate with his vocation. He is very knowledgeable and thorough with his work, cleaning, preventative, veneer (cosmetic), bridge… He and his staff makes sure that you’re comfortable  while working on you. And the TV right in the treatment room and many choices to watch. Wish I can stay and just relax and watch a movie after the treatment ! The place is very clean! And beautifully decorated! I’m a nurse so I’m very particular w the instruments being used and the way it’s  being handled during the entire procedure and Dr. David Lin and Sabrina (his assistant that day ) delivers…. I also love when he talks and shares his healthy living way. He really cares about his patients! TO THE ENTIRE STAFF, YOU’RE THE BEST!!! Lastly, when you get your appt. there’s no waiting. Unlike most clinics. They really value your time so I make sure, I get there on time.

ML. Y. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been playing hockey for more than twenty years. This means that I have had more than my fair share of dental office visits throughout the years. Dr. Lin and his staff have been by far the most remarkable office I have ever visited. I needed two of my crowns replaced from one of the most recent dental injuries I have had. For each, I had to have two visits. The first was a three hour appointment to take out the old crown, get the mold for the new crown, and to insert a temporary crown. A week later, my permanent crown was done and an hour more at Dr. Lin’s office and I was done.   Although these three hour appointments could very easily have been excruciating, they were not. With Dr. Lin, there was very little discomfort at all. Also, before the necessary procedures, one is able to pick from a variety of entertainment options on t.v. As for the staff, they are all incredibly friendly and efficient. My favorite part by far is their flexibility and convenience in setting up and/or adjusting appointments. In fairness, they were not always able to accommodate me when my schedule changed, but I know they always tried. Best of all, I am able to communicate through texts that they respond to promptly. Five stars all the way!

AJ. R. from Newbury Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Incredible dentist!! I’ve had a questionable amount of different dentists but Mr Lin beats them all. The office was beautiful and relaxing, and all the staff were extremely nice and professional. I usually dread going to the dentist because of the discomfort that usually comes with it, but I experienced no discomfort or pain throughout my appointment. Mr Lin was also very informative on my situation and I feel confident that my teeth will be well taken care of. The dental hygienist who cleaned my teeth was very gentle, careful, and considerate with the most sensitive parts of my mouth. The office and all the equipment was very clean and while you get work done, Netflix and headphones are provided for extra comfortability. I got a goodie bag on my way out with more than enough Sensodyne toothpaste which was recommended for my sensitive teeth. Also 2 full size bottles of two types of mouthwash, all of it in a super cute reusable bag.

Dr. Lin is the best dentist! I had pain on a tooth with crown and was suggested by another dentist to remove the crown, do root canal and install a new crown. I was so scared. Referred by my daughter, I visited Dr. Lin to get a second opinion. Dr. Lin performed a detail check and told me that I had root canal infection, it’s small and there’s no need to remove the crown, we can just make a small hole from the back of the crown and do the root canal. Followed his advice, I had my root canal done, no more pain, everything is great! His office is very nice and clean and his team is very friendly and professional. I really like the beautiful painting on his office’s ceiling and enjoy the personalized TV time during my waiting. Most of all, I am very impressed by his philosophy of avoiding unnecessary procedures and his delicate skill. I highly recommend Dr. Lin if you need a dentist!

Had my first visit with Dr. Lin this past week. He’s amazing! He genuinely cares about his patients. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and answer any of your questions thoroughly. He doesn’t rush through his explanation or make you feel stupid for not understanding these “dental terms” or pop in quickly and rushing to see other patients before you can think of questions to ask- like some other dental offices do. His work is meticulous, thorough, gentle and professional. He really cares about the comfort of his patients through out the whole process- from the first step you take into the office. Everything you can think of that can make your experience at a dental office superb can be experienced here. Highly recommend if you’re looking to upgrade your dental visits.

Best dentist I have ever been to! The staff was friendly, the business was very clean and modern. They give you a remote to the TV which includes netflix, hulu, and many other platforms for you to watch your favorite shows! Dr. Lin cleaned my teeth himself and was excellent about educating me on what I can do better and things I can add to my daily routine which will improve the health of my gums and teeth. I had an amazing experience with this dental office and definitely will be going back.

Haven’t been to the dentist for awhile now but was forced to go by the wife, and she picked Dr. Lin. Upon walking in, the office was very clean and the staff was very friendly. They even provided Netflix while I’m on the chair. I came in for a routine check up and deep cleaning. The procedure went smoothly and a lot easier than I expected, unlike my previous experiences from other dentists who left me withsore gum for days. Dr. Lin was very informative, kind, and professional. He informed me with details about how to take care of my teeth, and even gave me a goodie bag. Overall, this visit left me with a whole new perspective on going to the dentist and I highly recommend Dr. Lin!

Dr. Lin is is not only a great dentist, but also a phenomenal person outside of his dental practice. My wife and I have gone to him many times now. The place is well maintained with very polite staff thus making clients feel comfortable. Dr. Lin is very gentle and patient with his teeth cleaning and makes sure he addresses all your questions and concerned. He wouldn’t scare you just so you’d pay extra for a deep cleaning. Very respectful to client’s time and never late for an appointment. I will continue going to Dr. Lin and appreciates how much thought he put in his newly renovated office. Thank you!


After graduating from USC School of Dentistry in May 1992. I have worked in five dental clinics, six days a week for four years. I started Jean & Lin Dentistry (Anaheim) in 93' and S.C Dental Group (Irvine) in 94'. My first solo practice-City Dental Center (Hacienda Heights) was opened in 1996. A few years later, in 1999, 2001 and 2004 respectively, two more Alhambra offices and San Gabriel office were built as the business expanded. It's been a blessing to have served patients from different cultural and social-economic backgrounds. Those valuable experiences have taught me the fundamentals of good customer service and cultivated me to become a more empathetic and thoughtful professional. From word-of-mouth referrals before Yelp was established, we were fortunate to have patients visiting from all parts of LA. I was finally aspired to settle down in Arcadia, where a spacious, and centrally-located facility was built to provide a comfortable and personalized facility for our patients. After running 3 practices concurrently for 8 years and providing treatments for over 40,000+ patients, I decided to consolidate my practices to 1 location so I could maintain quality control over each patient visit. As an oral care provider, I will address all your health concerns. Regardless of the nature of the visit, we take our time with empathy to ensure optimal comfort. As a Leo, I always put myself in patients' shoes. Only necessary treatments will be recommended, nothing else!! We team up with experienced and honest specialists so patients being referred will be in good hands. Having worked with many dentists, I found it to be easy to do things right, but difficult to choose the RIGHT thing to do. Conscience and ethics must prevail over greed. As a small clinic with few staffs, we only have the capacity to serve a tiny fraction of the population. But if you happen to be with us, we would treat you like our family members and make you the best dental version of yourself!
