My front (capped) tooth was knocked out about a year ago, by a beautiful English bulldog named Bubba. The 1st dentist I went to shaved my tooth down so much… that nothing would adhere to it. The Dr wanted me to get the implants…$1200…  Needless to say I went without a tooth. Dr. Chow had noticed that I haven’t taken care of it. He gave me his card and said to come see him..He will take care of it. I of course didn’t take him seriously. But the next time I saw Dr. Chow he again said he was serious and to make an appointment. I called and didn’t even have to explain my situation to his staff. Dr. Chow had already filled them in. The staff was personable, friendly and efficient. Dr. Chow was amazing! Gentle and caring! Within an hour I had a skill fully created tooth. I could actually smile without covering my mouth. I feel beautiful again. I can’t thank Dr Chow and his amazing team enough!! Thank you Thank you !!!! Misty

I was recommended into this clinic by a co-worker and since I’ve been treated here I have done the same. Very professional team overall. Checking previous reviews I’ve noticed these are more focused overall in the fact that dental treatment is and always has been pricey, just as any other health service. I felt Dr Chow always came clean about what treatment was required for me and was not trying to beat around the bush so I took his opinion seriously and have not regretted it ever since. Highly recommended.

When I arrived at Dr Chow’s practice I was in need of some serious dental work.  Dr Chow and his team went the distance with me and totally remade my teeth.  A major effort like this is going to cost, and it did, but the real question is what are you spending money on. Quality or bargain basement junk?  In Dr Chow’s case you can be sure that the work is top quality and the overall result will be excellent.  Sure I did not want to spend money, but I am so pleased with my teeth now, they look natural and don’t embarrass me. You get what you pay for.

BEST OFFICE IN THOUSAND OAKS!!! I never write reviews but I must rave about Dr. Chow, he’s honestly the best dentist. Not only is the office staff so wonderful and patient and helpful but I really felt like the doctor took time with me, I could tell he really loves his job and his patients! 100% trust this doctor and will be referring him to my family and friends!!

Todd M. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chow has been my dentist for years.  I wouldn’t go to anyone else.  He is extremely thorough and professional and makes going to the dentist not all that bad!    His office is quite nice and his staff is super friendly and accommodating.  His dental hygienists do a great job as well. I recommend him and his staff as a great find as they were recommended to me by a friend.  I’m just passing along the reference as it’s deserving.

Annie D. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I loved going to the dentist because of Dr Chow’s office. I was a patient for approximately 3-4 years.  I was always greeted at the office as if they were next door neighbors and they knew you, even though my visits were every 3 or 6 months.  I was given the same few hygenists, so they knew me and I knew them.  They were very detailed and thorough, gentle and knowledgeable. Dr Chow is very friendly and knowledgeable as well.  When I was a patient, he used to go to continuing education courses to learn new techniques and stay abreast with latest research, and he was passionate about his job.  The office has the latest tools; I was a patient at the same office before Dr Chow began his practice there, and he had brought in updated equipment, computers, etc.  He brought in Invisalign, which I got through his office.  I referred coworkers who went there with their kids, and they all liked him too.  The leather chairs are also very comfortable and there are TVs on the ceiling, you can change the channel :o). Overall, the staff was the best – knowledgable, thorough, gentle, into teaching you how to better care for your teeth and gums.  I always left with extra toothbrushes and travel size toothpaste and floss.  I now have extras at home of travel size teethcare that I havent had to replenish for some time.  They treat you like they are your neighbors/friends, rather than a number or nameless patient.

Dr. Chow and his staff’s number one goal is to make sure you are comfortable. Normally, I have an issue with keeping my mouth open during a cleaning. As soon as I felt uncomfortable Dr. Chow and his assistant applied ice to the outside of my jaw and the discomfort went away. The staff is very friendly

Christine C. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


The office is up to date on all the new technology.. All the staff are very professional and knowledgeable… First impressions make all the difference. Office is very clean and organized and very nicely decorated.  Dr. Chow and his staff will work with any situation to help make your experience go smooth. Highly recommend them!

I HATE going to the dentist! This experience was actually a nice visit! The staff was very friendly. Especially Danielle! She greeted me when I came in and made me feel very welcome! Genuinely a very positive experience, would recommend Model Smile to everyone looking for a awesome dentist with excellent customer service staff!!

Dr Chow is a new dentist for me and I am so relived to have found him. I was referred to him by my acupuncturist Dr Christina Pabers. I have been suffering with chronic sinus infections for years so Dr Pabers recommended Dr Chow because he looks at dental care from a whole body perspective.  In addition, I have always had a fear of the dentist. Even simple cleanings cause extreme anxiety for me. I was so relieved to find that Dr Chow provides various alternatives when extensive dental corrections are needed for those with anxiety. Today I had 2 wisdom teeth pulled, the first step of a cap and 2 fillings all under the specialized care of Dr Chow and his excellent staff. I can’t emphasize enough how caring and empathetic the entire experience was. I recommend Dr Chow to all!

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


Dr. Chow has been my dentist for 6 years now, and I am very thankful for him and his staff. Every visit I’m greeted by the lovely ladies up front, I never have to wait more than 10 min to be seen. Dr. Chow did it filling for me using the Solea laser and I didn’t even have to get a shot! It was so nice not to be numb,  and I was able to  eat lunch with my friends. Thank you Model Smile for everything! I highly recommend Dr. Chow

Michele S. from Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Yesterday was my first visit with Dr. Chow as I had some issues with my Bridge that I had done in Arizona. Dr. Chow corrected the problem that I had and now I’m pain free. Not only was the office clean but the staff was very professional and friendly. They even made sure that I had an Uber ride home after my procedure. Dr Chow even called me personally to check up on see how I was feeling.I highly recommend this office.

Bridgeman C. from Newbury Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chow and the team have made many necessary changes, and all for the better, to my teeth. As my old fillings had begin breaking down we agreed to porcelain crowns, matched to my teeth’e current color, the teeth that were in the worst shape. Chow uses state of the art techniques and is sensitive to more low threshold of pain. My teeth all look great today!

Vanessa H. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


OMG!!! I am so glad I found this place! You never know who to trust, especially when it comes to dentist. If you want a clean upsacle dental office this is the place to go! I came to the office with my sister and wasn’t planning on seeing the doctor but everyone was super nice, next thing I new I was in the chair! Dr. Chow is so professional and explained everything in detail. Best Hygienest, best staff, best doctor! I walked out of the office feeling great. I will definately be returning! Thanks Dr. Chow!

I had a molar that needed to be removed because the inside had decayed away. I was referred to Dr. Chow by a friend who said he is a painless dentist and with no insurance I was told he will work with you. I have to say this was one of the best recommendations I have ever received. I had to drive from Sherman Oaks and was complaining about the long drive. This visit and extraction seemed like the perfect storm, I was at his office in less than 30 minutes. His staff was great and made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in the door and Dr. Chow was the best. After they took X-rays Dr. Chow sat down with me and shared what he saw and how he would remove the tooth knowing it would probably break up into lots of pieces with the inside all decayed out. The amount of time he spent and the in-depth conversation we had surprised me but I felt confident I made the right decision to use this dentist. He sounded like such a pro and more important he wanted me to feel comfortable with what he was going to do. The Surgery was painless for sure, all during the process he was checking in with me to make sure I was OK. This was actually a good experience, who would have thought cutting out a tooth could be so easy. He did all this knowing my cash flow was not the best and I would probably not be back quickly to resolve the other problems in my mouth until my cash flow got better. The Price was right for sure, the service and professionalism was the best. He told me what I had to do next in my mouth after pulling this tooth and let me know I was OK for a while and NOT to worry that things were going to be horrible if I didn’t fix all the problems in my mouth right now. Thank you Dr, Chow for NO SALES PITCH. if you are looking for a great dentist this guy is the best. This is only the second review I have done on YELP. Normally the situation just doesn’t call for me to stop and write a review about my experience. BUT this Guy definitely got my vote of confidence. If you are looking for a dentist that has it all together i would strongly suggest you see Dr. Chow. Actually he is the kind of guy you would like to have as a friend.. pretty cool.

Jonathan G. from Hidden Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chow is terrific.  He’s got the latest technology, really friendly staff, and he’s very gentle.  I’ve had a dental implant and root canal from Dr. Chow and it’s all been very painless and comfortable.  He’s done several crowns for me that have turned out great.  I used to go to Dr. Howard before he retired from the same office.  I liked him a lot but the new technology that Dr. Chow has brought to the office is amazing.  I recommend him all the time to my friends.

Jami B. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


So grateful Dr Chow was able to fix a different dentists mistakes. I was in so much pain and he not only made me comfortable but took care of what had been giving my mouth, face and head pain for almost two years. I will never try to save money on something as important as my teeth again and will follow his lead. The office staff helped give me a discount and made sure I was comfortable. Dr Chow also did a lot of work on my mother and had her crowns replaced. I can not recommend Dr Chow enough, he’s the best dentist I’ve ever had.

Christina H. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so happy I found Dr. Chow! I am very afraid of needles! I went to the office for a filling I had to take care of, and I was happy to hear Dr. Chow didn’t have to use a shot. Instead he used a Laser, the laser pain free! As of today my tooth feels great no issues at all. I already referred my 2 of my friends to his office. Thanks Dr. Chow!
