Dr. Chen is one of the most honest people I know in the dentist business. He reminds me of a guy that just wants to help out people. This place isn’t at all on the expensive side and if anything he will try to make it more affordable for you! I get my yearly check up here all the time. To tell me if I’m getting any new cavities or need something. But most of the time it is just for cleaning and he does a really good job!! I know I know a lot of people hate going to the dentist because they might be scared of what the dentist is going to say. But you don’t want to wait till your in soo much pain that you might have to take the whole tooth out! That will not be fun and it will also be costly. I suggest trying him out to see if you like him. But I think you will because he has a great staff. Also this place is super duper clean! Oh yea don’t think that just going to the dentist you will be got to follow his instructions like brushing well and also flossing to make it work! It is a lot of work but in the long run it is really really worth it to have all your teeth when you are an oldie !

Dr Chen is the BEST dentist I know. A few years ago I needed dental inplants and he sent me to the best doctor.That did a great job. Dr. Chen cares about you and your teeth. I travel 67 miles each way to see him from Fillmore Ca, I used to live in Temple City and that’s how I got to know him.I would not go to another dentist! Period! He does both my wife and I’s teeth and always takes care of us both very well. Angel is wonderful and always helpful. She’s the best! I do not know his assistants name but she is great too! I highly highly recomened Dr Chen as your dentist and his staff is wonderful. Thank you to Dr. Chen and his staff. Remember their the best. This is the dentist if you need one. Best, Paul

Matt C. from Compton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommend Jeffrey Chen. He is professional and to the point. I greatly appreciate his approach. For those who say he’s quick, why would you want to spend any more time at a dentist’s office than necessary? He gets you in, does his job, let’s you know what’s wrong in a clear and concise manner, and gets you in your way. I’ve never felt pressured to get any more work done than necessary unlike at other dentist offices

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


Best.Dentist.Ever. I remember the days when it would take hours out of my day to get my teeth cleaned. I also remember how front desk ladies would make me feel like they’re up-selling me or being shady with my insurance. This is NEVER the case at Dr. Chen’s dental office. I went in to get one of my crowns replaced. My first visit took 30 minutes to get X-rays done and molding. My second visit involves putting on the new crown along with teeth cleaning. Total time? 20 minutes. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Chen for 3 years now and so far in my experience, I will never ever choose another dentist over him! He is not only efficient, but he is thorough. Dr. Chen has educated me the health of my gums and how to take care of my teeth. I’ve also never had to wait to be helped after making an appointment. I highly highly recommend giving Dr. Chen a try for your dental health.

Samantha T. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist ever. I come here for my biannual teeth cleaning when I visit my parents in town. I find that his prices are reasonable and like that he does the cleaning himself. He does work a little fast but given that I don’t have many dental problems for now so perhaps it doesn’t bother me as much

Julie B. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen is great. He sees my whole family. You get in and out quickly, yet he’s thorough and takes the time to make sure you understand everything. He doesn’t push treatments you don’t need, but he’s quite competent at doing all that is needed. His use of X-rays and close-up photography gives a much more comprehensive picture of what’s really going on with my teeth. Nice guy. Strongly recommended

Cat S. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Finding a good dentist is like finding a good mechanic. You need to find someone who is honest, thorough, and knows exactly what they’re doing, so you don’t end up with bigger problems in the future. I have pretty sensitive teeth and dread going to the dentist. But Dr. Chen tries to ensure I experience minimal pain. He takes the time to show me areas that need better brushing and things that might become a problem if not monitored properly. I recommend him to all my friends. He rocks

F. F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and i have been going to dr Chen even before he opened his own practice.  He is knowledgeable and quick. He tells it how it is and doesn’t sugarcoat anything.  After all it is the health of our teeth so I wouldn’t expect anything less.  Making an appt is fairly easy, they are very accommodating

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


Receptionist was really nice and friendly.  I got seen right away and there was no wait.  Equipments are clean and new. It was my first time there and Dr, Chen really took his time to explain to me about my teeth and showed me how to floss correctly. Will definitely come back for my next check up.

Wen D. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr Chen on Yelp and thanks Yelpers, he is just great. I am scared of seeing dentist since I was little. Those sounds from the drilling machine, OMG. But this time I had no choice as I hurt my teeth when I am chewing on a crunch pizza base, poor me, hehe. Waiting time: I need to pay several visits since I haven’t seem a dentist for years, and there are lots of problems with my teeth. Every time the wait was less than 5 mins, awesome. Dr Chen managed his appointments quite well.( For some doctors, I’ve experienced 1+ hour waiting even with an appointment) I believe it’s because Dr Chen is very experienced so that he can finish each patient within 30 slot, therefore, he can properly schedule his patients and minimize the waiting time. Technology: Dr Chen did a thorough teeth check with his X-ray machine and teeth imaging machine as lots of other Yelpers mentioned. Bedside manner: He clearly explained my teeth condition, gave out suggestions, answered all my concerns and leave the decision to me. Not pushing for any service. I also brought my husband and my 4 year old daughter to see him.  I was super worried about my daughter since this was her first dentist visit, but Dr Chen handled very well, my daughter wasn’t scared at all. Price: $50 deductible was waived, Nice. And I leave the rest to Dr Chen and the insurance company. Easy. All in all, highly recommend!

Anne H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


He talks very fast and works very fast but he makes sure you understand everything. My first visit was for a cleaning, but of course I haven’t been to the dentist for a while so I had some stuff to be taken care of extra. He pretty much filled a bunch of cavities really quickly and I was in and out in 30 minutes. So far so good

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


I used to see Dr. Jeffrey Chen at his office on San Gabriel blvd for years. After he moved and open his own dental office here at Temple City a year ago. I been following him  and have my dental works done. I am definitely not going anywhere else again because finding a good dentist was really hard, especially when you want a dentist who truly care about your teeth and concerns. Here are my reasons why I recommend patients to see Dr. Jeffrey Chen: 1) Convenient Location – His new office is located 10-15 mins off from the 210, 605, and the 10 freeways. There are plenty of 2 hrs parking spaces in the back, and he even have a back door conveniently let patients with appointment to come through. Handicap/ wheelchair patients are welcome as the office have ramps for easy access. 2) New facility – The whole facility was newly-renovated and designed as they open a year ago. All of their equipments are new and latest technology.  For example, computerized X-Ray vs traditional X-Ray films. (You get to see your X-ray on the computer 1 sec after it was taken! How cool is that?!) 3) Professional, Patience and Caring Dentist – Dr. Chen is very knowledgeable and professional.  He will explain what procedures he is going to perform before he starts.  And he will explain to you what areas you need play more attention. No need to worry about getting rip-off like some other dental office! The receptionist will inform you if you need any co-payment before having any dental work done. Even the cash price for non-insured patients are very reasonable. 4) Friendly staffs – their staffs will make sure you are comfortable and get taken care of. Even the receptionists are detail at explaining the procedures you need and any insurance problems/ questions you have. 5) Cleanliness – All their dental equipments are sanitize after each patient visit. New clear protective film is apply to all machines and light to ensure patient safety. The restroom is super clean too. (That’s a pet-peeve of mine- must have clean, freshly smell restroom.) 6.)Language- Dr. Jeffrey Chen is Taiwanese, but he is fluently in English, Taiwanese, Chinese, and even Cantonese!! This make easier on my parents when they visit. 7.)No Wait Time!!!!   OMG This is a must! We all know how dreadful it is to wait hours at a health care facility even with an appointment. NOT AT DR.CHEN~  here, the appointment time you made is the time you will see Dr. Chen. Patients are expected to be on-time and is seen one after one. Rarely there would be wait time more than 5-10 mins. So you get out of here about 30 mins depending on your treatments of the day. SWEET! Don’t look any further! Just give Dr. Jeffrey Chen a try. You have just found your best, reliable dentist! =] Hope this helps =]

Jennifer B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m super happy to find this office and Dr. Chen. He is fantastic! Honest, soothing, educating and listens to the patients needs. He is sensitive to the fear that people having going to the dentist. And most of all his prices are a amazing and he is very good about sticking to what you can afford.

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


Jeffrey Chen is the BEST dentist I have ever had. I drive about 45 minutes from West LA back to the SGV to see him every time. My favorite thing about Dr. Chen is that he truly cares about his patients and is very honest and thorough about the procedures needed. He also works with your budget. One time, I came in thinking that I needed a wisdom tooth extraction. After reviewing some X-rays, Dr. Chen told me that I didn’t need to have my wisdom tooth removed and it’ll grow in fine and possibly help with gaps I have between my teeth. He told me that,” the objective is care and not profit so there’s no reason to remove the wisdom tooth.” THAT IS SOMEONE WHO IS COMMITTED TO PATIENT CARE. Oh, and let me mentioned that he is EXTREMELY skilled. I had a cavity filled and felt minimal pain without a numbing shot. He works really quickly so it’s in and out. His secretary Angel is great at following up as well

Phung T. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Honest, skilled and efficient! Going to Dr. Chen is not like you normally go to other dentist where you have to wait for hours.  Dr. Chen come in show me what are the problems with my teeth, give me his recommendations and let me decide what I like to do. I was in and out for less than an hour. The staffs are friendly, the office is very clean!

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


Dr. Chen is the best dentist I’ve ever been to, and the only dentist I will go to. I was so HAPPY when I found Dr. Chen again!! I used to go to him back when he was on San Gabriel, but then I moved out of state.  I just moved back and was so sad that he had moved.  I didn’t remember his name and didn’t know where to find him, so I went to different dentist – WRONG DECISION.  After a horrible experience at another dentist, I was determined to find Dr. Chen again to get his second opinoin so I rummaged through all the old business cards I could find and finally found his name and was able to find him on yelp. I’m slightly biased because we share the same alma mater, FIGHT ON!, but honestly he is the most knowledgable, efficient, genuine, and honest dentist I’ve ever known. He will never trick you, he gives you all the options available and tells you the pros and cons of each option.  He is very thorough with his exams and will always show you pictures of your own teeth and will explain in laymans terms what the problems are.  It is very hard nowadays to find a dentist/doctor that you can trust, that has your best interest in mind.  Dr. Chen will do what is best for you, not what will make him the most money. Once you come to Dr. Chen, you’ll never want to see another dentist again, trust me

Gloria Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I followed Dr. Chen from the old San Gabriel location to this nice new one in Temple City, even though it’s further for me because he’s awesome.  He’s extremely fast and efficient, and does practically everything himself. He’s also very genuine and straight forward.  There is no bullshitting with him, but that’s not saying he’s not a nice and funny guy. The only thing is that I don’t recommend him for people scared of pain.  He’s not into anesthesia, and while I love complaining about it, I really don’t mind.  It’s just a couple seconds of pain.  I just scream and try not to bite his hand

Shawn L. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist ever. never had a problrm getting an appointment.  he accomodates emergency situations. i have bedn going to him for the last 8 years. i followed him from hus previous location. i recommend him to all my friends and family. every i have recommended were pleased with the service

Karen A. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I am doctor in my early 30’s who went for a routine visit to the dentist and found that I had a large asymptomatic abscess in my front upper tooth requiring me to get a root canal. I had a cavity filled years ago that apparently caused the nerve to die causing my abscess.  My dentist wanted to charge me over $3,500 for doing the root canal and also told me I would need a crown which will ruin my smile (given its location). Thankfully I did some research and found Dr. Jeffery Chen from Mid county endodontic group. Dr.Chen specializes in microscopic surgery with outstanding credentials  which you can find on the mid county endodontic website. After my evaluation with Dr. Chen, he stated he could   do the root canal microscopically through the back of the tooth thus not requiring a crown or changing my smile. Furthermore  it would cost a fraction of the previous amount stated by my dentist. During the procedure you can pick which music you would like to listen to and fall asleep given how painless it was. Also by choosing Mid county Endodonics you have access to better equipment used to clean your tooth during the root canal and also get a dentist who is experienced in root canals thus having a lower failure rate. Its been a month since my procedure and my smile looks the same and I am extremely happy about choosing Dr.Chen

Lawrence F. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist ever. Super fast and affordable! I have been to over ten dentists in my life and Dr chen is the best experience i have had at a dentist . And i hate going to the dentist and even have a fear of dental visits.

Sharron Popovich (Source: Facebook)


Thorough, knowledgable, professional, ON-TIME always (!), & doesn’t try to “add on” any procedure just to make money. Dr. Chen actually saves the patient both time and money while providing excellent dental service. His assistant and front office personnel are also very knowledgabe and professional. Easy to make appointment to suit my sched

Elvin C. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dentistry is a dream come true. Jeffrey Chen is as straightforward as it gets and he’s skilled, honest, and quick. My previous dentistry is literally the polar opposite of this place and I’m not going to get into how peeved I am about that place. Let’s just say it’s full of lies, scams, deceit, and fake smiles. Edit: I lied, I did get into it. It never takes more than 15 minutes to get in and out of there, which is amazing to me. You ever play Pokèmon and go to Nurse Joy to have your Pokèmans healed? Of course you have. It’s like Jeffrey Chen is Nurse Joy and one short catchy tune later, your teeth are all clean. He’s extremely legit, charges your insurance, saves you money, and is pretty affordable in pricing. He’s not gonna play dumb games with you busting out shady copays that you never saw coming like my previous dentistry. He’s not gonna up sell you on dental procedures you don’t need. He’s gonna get straight to the point because we all understand the dentist is like about as fun as the DMV. Not even any small talk either, it might be the introvert in me but I love that. I love Trader Joe’s but I’m not the type of guy who looks forward to a forced conversation at check out especially when I know they’re told to make chit chat and it’s their job. So forced, no thanks. My previous dentistry always loved to pretend like they’re super cool with me and always have this giant smile on their face and I’m like wtf I don’t even know your name…all while trying to up sell me stuff using scare tactics and scam me by placing fraudulent charges to my insurance. If I sound bitter, I really really am about them. But this place is a godsend. No bullshit. It’s so straightforward that the outside sign just says “DENTIST.” Even the receptionist (Angel I believe her name is) is great and helpful. I’ve also never had to wait around for my dentist to be ready. I think that’s a result of their no tolerance on tardiness attitude. On my first appointment here, I was late like ~10 minutes because of road construction all along Las Tunas. Got calls over and over…got there and still didn’t hear the end of it about my tardiness haha. I like it this way, it keeps their operation’s schedule organized and efficient. So yah, being punctual is a must! There’s parking in the front on the street and the back of the place. After coming here, dental appointments are now like a quick ephemeral dream, soon to be forgotten

Yieeqi W. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Pro and cons about this dentist. Pros: he is cheap and his office is neat. You don’t have to wait for the service. The reservation process is good so you don’t have to wait for a long time. Cons: the dentist is strict and not patient. I hope he has nicer personality

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


I’ve been coming to Dr. Chen’s office for all of my dental needs for a little over a year now. So far, I’ve gotten a few cleanings and a temporary crown. I’m going to get my permanent crown this Saturday! If you’ve been to enough health facilities, you should know that the wait is almost always excruciating. Not here! I’ve never had to wait for more than 5 mins for my appointments. I suggest that you get there a little early because I was late once and his assistant called me one minute after the appointment time. I don’t dare to be late again…I really appreciate his staff’s effort to keep everyone on schedule because that means I won’t have to wait for my appointment. Dr. Chen also does his part to be on schedule. He works fast but delicately and efficiently. He begins with giving you a concise overview of the purpose for the appointment and the condition of your teeth. Don’t hesitate to ask him questions. He will patiently answer any questions and address any concerns that you may have. Dr. Chen does the teeth cleaning himself. I’ve always dreaded teeth cleaning because the dental hygienists always dig whatever tools they use in my teeth mercilessly and I end up in pain. I feel little to no pain with Dr. Chen’s refined teeth cleaning technique. This past weekend, I went in for a crown fitting. The appointment was at 10:30 and I got there at 10:25. Dr. Chen was able to see me right away. I was out of the office by 10:50. His office assistants are friendly and helpful. The office is clean and neat, but it’s unlikely that you’ll have much time to examine his office anyway. There is plenty of parking in the back. I highly recommend Dr. Chen!

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


Dr Chen is by far the best dentist i have been to.  He is very professional and no nonsense.  He gets the job done quickly and efficiently.The only drawback is he is a Trojan (Bruin 4 life!)  but i will overlook that.

Voir D. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


BEST DENTIST I’VE EVER BEEN TO =D -Affordable and Friendly -Free x-rays w/ teeth cleaning -Great Location and Nice facility -No wait time (In and Out every time I visit for cleaning less than 40 mins) -Gives free toothbrush & toothpaste after visit MY EXPERIENCE:  The first time I visited Dr. Chen he was very straight forward and to the point, no nonsense. He made me change the way I feel about taking care of my teeth and the importance of flossing in a very positive and motivating way.  After the cleaning he took x-rays (free with the cleaning procedure only $40) and showed them to me and explained everything I needed to know about my teeth, gums, and prior cavity fillings so that I can better take care of them. I am very happy I found a great dentist like him! Also I was very late for my appointment and it was close to closing time for them and he was totally cool about it. I would high recommend him to all my friends & family! YELLOW UGLY TEETH IS UNATTRACTIVE SO GO SEE DOCTOR CHEN! =)

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


My family and I have been coming to him for around 3 years now and we love him! He’s not intimidating at all – he’s very honest, informative, and friendly. I had an appointment for semi annual check up / teeth cleaning at 11:30am and I arrived at 11:25ish.  Dr. Chen doesn’t waste any time; I only had to wait in the lobby for a couple mins before getting called in, and he started cleaning my teeth immediately. I was out of the dental office by 11:40. (Yay to no cavities! :D) I’m that girl who absolutely dreads going to the doctor and dentist because I’m just too scared to find out what’s wrong with me (or see blood or experience any discomfort). But Dr. Chen has made every single one of my visits pleasant and enjoyable. No wait, no pain, no discomfort, and doesn’t do unnecessary procedures. What else can you ask for when going to a dentist? He’s awesome!! Definitely recommend him if you’re in need of a new dentist. He’s the best dentist I’ve ever had (and I’ve been to quite a few!

Adrienne M. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen is a great dentist!  I have been coming to him for 4 years and he is efficient, informative and thorough.  I like that I get serviced at the appointment time.  He can be bit abrupt but I like that he gets right to business.  He makes going to the dentist painless.  It’s always a quick in and out process.  The office itself is simple and clean.  Thank you, Dr. Chen!

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


I’m so glad I have dental PPO from work now, I had DHMO for a year, and Dr. Chen was out of the network, so I was unable to come here. I have an appointment coming up, and I’m actually excited to get my teeth worked on!

Jenny S. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I think I just found my favorite dentist! YAY! Came in at 1130am for xray and cleaning and he did a small filling for me and I was out by 12! He is very honest and knowledgeable and unlike some dentist who tries to sell you stuff. Highly recommended 🙂

Tiffany C. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to many dentists in my life after my childhood dentist decided to give up his practice. And I feel that Jeffrey Chen is the best out of them all. You know those dentists who try to make small talk with you, and ask you about school, life, etc. Yeah, there was this one dentist who, upon finding out my parents spoke Cantonese, began to talk about his childhood and his life overseas WHILE working on my teeth …  but Dr. Chen gets right down to business and focuses solely on the teeth. No extra chit-chat, which is what I like. Also, there is never a wait. I always make my appointments ahead of time, and he is always prompt. The office is always well lit and very well kept, so it’s welcoming to the patients. Everything looks new and spotless which is reassuring. I usually cringe at the thought of going to the dentist, but if there’s pain, Dr. Chen will usually stop and let me get ahold of myself aha. Great dentist who really cares about his job!

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


So this is a girl that has her fair share with multiple dentist…..-the past 9 years i have been in school for undergrad and graduate school and having no dental insurance is a pain in the butt, so often times i would just hop from dentist to dentist trying to find the best deal, quotes, and one that cares about my teeth! I FOuND MY DeNTiST!!  My coworker had recommended him saying that she has the “BEST DENTIST IN THE WORLD”.    I am so excited and  at ease when i go to the dentist now.  I am never going anywhere else. Dr. Chen is not only compassionate about his job, but he really make sure you understands what is happening to your teeth and explains everything.  He has the latest technology, so no more films XRAY but it gets projected on the computer, and he explains what is happening to your teeth. At my first visit he had to remove my painful wisdom teeth and he did it in LESS THAN 10 minutes.  I was so shocked when he put gauze in my mouth, i was like are you done?  I remember in high school my other wisdom teeth removal took over an hour.  He’s SUPER professional and knowledgable. His office staff is very accommodating and helped look up my dental insurance over the phone and explained some tips in order to help deal with the pain from my wisdom teeth. Basically, this dental place has it all. 1) compassionate DDS and staff  . 2) conveniently located  . 3) fair pricing. 4) easy parking (in the back for 2 hours) 5) on time appointments. 6) latest technological equipment All of my other DDS in my phone has been deleted! I found MY dentist!!

Angel H. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


I chose Dr. Chen because it was close to me when I lived in Temple City. Dr. Chen is very nice and patient. He explained the problem of my teeth in details and he only fix the teeth that are necessary. He doesnt try to rip me off like many other dentists did. Over all very good experience with Dr. Chen. Too bad I moved very far. Hope I can find a dentist like Dr. Chen around this area

Sammi S. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience today having my first visit with Dr. Chen!! He showed me all my teeth with his high tech camera. He explained to me what’s considered bad. Seeing it from the camera makes it so much easier to understand and you won’t feel like the dentist is just BSing! Dr. Chen is by far the best dentist I’ve been to! He told me there are 2 teeth that I would need fillings for but in the end he said only one is urgent and tell me to wait on the other one and just improve my flossing skills. He is great! Hardly ever you can like a dentist, seriously! I highly recommend him!!

Shane C. from San Francisco Bay Area, CA (Source: Yelp)


My last dentist was a horrible experience, but Dr. Chen has made going to the dentist less dread-worthy. Walk-ins are accepted, but I’ve always made an appointment. Some dentists make you wait even though you have an appointment, but there’s never a wait for Dr. Chen. He’s very efficient and my appointments are usually finished after half an hour. He’s very thoughtful if you have sensitive teeth, and gives good advice. He puts an emphasis on prevention rather than treatment after the fact. I went in for cavities, and he took several pictures and really went over the x-ray and explained everything. He made the local anesthesia shot an option but didn’t try to force it on me like another dentist did before
