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

Carol C. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today I had some dental work done by Dr. Phan and even though she’s been our dentist for 3.5 years, today was the first time I had actual work done. Dr. Phan and her assistant Carolyn were very good and knowledgeable. Dr. Phan was gentle and I barely felt the shot. My crown prep, and 2 fillings went pretty smooth, especially since Dr. Phan had her work cut out with me. I was completely shocked to hear that my permanent crown will be ready for me by tomorrow, which was great news to me. Hats off to Dr. Phan and her assistant Carolyn too..thank you so much..5++++++ stars from me… I would like to give a shout out to my favorite hygienist, Stacy, she has not only cleaned my teeth for at least 25 years, and she’s the one I ask for, I feel very comfortable when I’m in the chair with her as she is very gentle, funny, and takes the time to bond with her patients, and on top of it, my teeth look so shiny and bright afterwards…Stacy gets all stars in my book. 5+++++++ Mara is the person who runs the show, she is kind, informative, and I have known Mara for almost as long as I’ve known Stacy, whenever I need to call the office, I’m always very glad when she answers the phone…hat’s off to Mara at the front desk…5++++ stars for Mara !!!

I absolutely love this dentist office! I feel comfortable and confident in their care. All of the staff are super kind and courteous. I really feel cared about as a person here. They give you exact answers and are time savvy. I never have to worry about delays, misinformation, unnecessary costs, or cancellations. I highly recommend this office to anyone who wants excellent care at an affordable cost!

Visiting this office was a great experience. The receptionist was kind and communicated everything to me clearly and concisely. The dental assistant (?) Danielle was also friendly and she knew exactly what she was doing. In addition, the office itself was very clean and modern – they took bitewing x-rays directly in my room. My dentist was a very good listener, and she addressed each of my concerns in a logical and caring manner. I suppose it also helps that we’re both from SoCal, too! All in all, it was an excellent experience; while I by no means love going to the dentist, I certainly feel comfortable being in the care of such professional and personable staff.

Duke W. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have found my life dentist and office. After my third visit, I know the care I receive is not only highly professional, but it is reflective of my needs and wishes. Dr. Phan is thorough in her explanations and most importantly understands my interests. My hygienist, Uri, is fabulous as well. How fortunate I am to have discovered San Mateo Dental Arts as the replacement for my long, long time, now retired dentist, Dr. Muzio.

Gabriella Durango (Source: Google)


Dr. Phan and her staff are all patient, kind, and understanding. I always leave feeling confident I received good dental care so I’d be happy to recommend Dental Arts San Mateo to anyone. Started going to Dental Arts San Mateo in 2019 after finding Dr. Sheena Phan on Zocdoc and I keep going back even after several moves because she’s that good. Also, they recently changed offices and their new office is so nice- clean, modern, and features a parking lot.

Aimée G. from Shoreview, San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


LOVE the staff here! I do NOT like dental work as it gives me major chicken skin (goosebumps) but they always make me feel at ease and treat me like family, even joking and having fun to keep my mind off the dental stuff! Highly recommend this office because they are all friendly and good…and both Dr. Baker and Dr. Phan are incredible dentist with awesome “bedside” manners!!

T Bone V. from South San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My dentist of over 15 years retired. I was referred to Dr Phan’s office. I don’t like changes and was nerves for my first appointment. When I arrived at the office, I was greeted by the front desk. They were very friendly & helpful. From my obsession of the office, the complete staff worked as a team, which made my visit very smooth & painless. In my return visit, Dr Sheena explained each procedure to me, which helped me feel more at ease. I highly recommend this office. Dr. Sheena & her staff are very competent.

My husband , Vincent , and I have been going to this dental office for many years. We love Mara the very welcoming, friendly receptionist and Stacy, the gentle and very good dental hygienist. And now we have Dr. Sheena Phan , friendly, professional and very clear with her explanations for our dental works that may or may not need attention . Thank you for taking care of our dental needs.

In addition to a thorough routine cleaning, the Dr. went over some x-rays she had reviewed prior to my arrival. They revealed a probable cause of some very mild sensitivity in a tooth that had been present for several years. There is no action needed now, but I know what do if the sensitivity gets worse. Very proactive on her part.

Linda R. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Phan is very patient oriented, even taking the time to help me sort out a complicated insurance question. We are retired and no longer have dental insurance. Stacey, our excellent dental hygienist, alerted my husband to the fact that he will probably need expensive restorative work in the coming years. Dr. Phan gave us a formula to analyze different insurance plans comparing the premium to the capped benefit. Now we have to do the research! Thank you Stacey and Dr. Phan! We also love the always efficient Mara at the front desk too! Thanks to everyone! M&L

Beverly O. from San Bruno, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pham and staff are just great!  I was recently in to have a very ancient filling replaced and she showed me, using a video camera, what this tooth looked like from the back side and I was stunned.  I would have had it repaired earlier had I known.  Dr. Pham has also done a crown or two for me and that turned out great. One is always a bit apprehensive after having 2 great dentists, Drs. Stephen and Greg Baker, at that practice.  I miss them, but I am so happy with Dr. Pham, Tammy, Linda, Mara, Tina, and LuLu.  I highly recommend.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr Phan. I went in for a cleaning which was amazing, and My teeth and gums felt so good after. Then Dr Phan came in and did my check up. She spoke to me about some problem areas and what we should address first. I felt very comfortable and they were so informative and helpful. I went back a week later to have some filling done which were fast and painless. Again Dr Phan was extremely helpful and informative. Gave me all of my options and her thoughts on the best plan for my dental needs. also a side not, Ive been to dentist before where it felt like they were trying to pile on as many things a possible so they could make more money. Options and procedures that I didn’t necessarily but were made out to be a major priority. I didn’t get that at all from Dr Phan’s office. She was honest about procedures that should be a priority and others that were optional or could wait. 5 stars doesn’t do Dr Phan office justice. I will be going there for a very long time.

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


Woke up with a severe toothache, sent a text at 9am and by noon Dr. Phan had fixed it perfectly! The Arts experience is beyond ordinary dentistry. You can tell that they think about how to make the experience better, the little pillows, the cool shades, it shows an uncommon level of attention to detail. Dr. Phan is fun to talk to, explains things in detail, and does only what is necessary.

Gillian A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Words cannot describe how grateful I am for Dr. Phan and San Mateo Dental Arts. I suffered a traumatic injury which displaced two teeth on a Friday night. Dr. Phan opened the office for me at 8:00 AM on a Saturday to perform an emergency procedure. I can’t imagine what it would have been like to have to sit around for another day with literally two of my front teeth pushed back into my mouth. She saved me from a considerable amount of pain and put me very quickly on my road to recovery. The care was not only medically exceptional considering the injury, but also invaluable to my emotional state. Everyone in the office was sympathetic and supportive during a very traumatic time and I could not have asked for better patient care. I am extremely grateful that my follow up and further procedures will be with Dr. Phan and San Mateo Dental Arts. Gillian

Christina C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Phan has been my dentist for the past several years. I’ve always had such a great experience with her. I’m SO glad to see that she’s finally open her own dental office in San Mateo! The location is so much more convenient for me. Easy to get to by car and free parking structure for patients! Marah, the receptionist, was super kind and made me feel at home. I love the state of the art technology at the office. She has an intraoral camera to point out all of the problem areas that she sees in my mouth. Pretty cool! She also has digital x-rays, which is more eco-friendly and shoots out less radiation. Unlike other dentists that I’ve been to, Dr. Phan actually takes the time to get to know me and to discuss the treatment options with me. I’m not exactly a fan of going to the dentist…but I needed a lot of dental work done and Dr. Phan took good care of me. She’s always been very gentle and made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedures. I highly recommend if you’re looking for a new dentist!

Bob M. (Source: Zocdoc)


In addition to the good cleaning, I received some good information on a probable cause of some very mild tooth sensitivity that the Dr. had picked up in reviewing my previous x-rays. I feel much better informed about the probable cause and know now what would need to be done if it were to get worse.

Alex C. from El Cerrito, CA (Source: Yelp)


Came here to San Mateo Dental Arts because my dentist was still closed due to the SIP and was not planning to open until Aug. Found this place in thanks due to the glowing reviews posted by fellow Yelpers. When I called, I lucked out and they had a last min cancelation and was able to see me the next week for a teeth cleaning! Prior to my visit, there was plenty of communication and follow-up from the office. They will email and text you reminders and address to make sure you know where and when to go. For those new and looking, they have moved recently to150 N San Mateo Dr. Apparently they have a parking lot you can use at Monte Diablo Ave, however street parking was plentiful when I arrived so that was a non-issue. Everyone in the office was polite and friendly. Dr Sheena was very knowledgeable and thorough in explaining to me my x-rays and making some suggestions. And Stacey was a great hygienist who kept the whole procedure there entertaining and fun. Although this new office is now a bit farther away from my house, I will definitely consider them for all of my future dental needs!

As a first time visitor, I had a seamless experience with Dr. Phan and her team. From registration, to cleaning to x-rays, the team was super helpful and helped me get in and out – while understanding what steps I needed to take next to keep my teeth and gums in good health. They were gentle on my teeth and always updated me with what they were about to do – something small, but it meant all the difference.

Rachel Matzke (Source: Google)


Excellent experience here, and I’m looking forward to returning. Clean, beautiful dental office where they practice impeccable safety protocols without removing warmth. The dental hygienist was thorough but gentle, and my dentist gave me very helpful insight about how to better preserve the health of my teeth. They didn’t push products nor recommend any unnecessary procedures. Overall a wonderful experience and I’m happy I found them.

My first dental appointment experience with Dr. Phan is excellent. Very kind and nice doctor. Explains everything steps by step. Care about her patients and doing treatments very gentle way. Also the very professional staff. Thank you so much, Britney, for your superior service and all the explanations regarding my dental procedure. I would definitely recommend!

Dr. Phan makes going to the dentist an enjoyable experience. Scheduling an appointment was easy with ZocDoc and they confirm the appointment two times as the date approaches so that you don’t forget and have a chance to reschedule if needed. Once you arrive, you are welcomed by a super friendly, knowledgeable staff at the front desk. The dental technicians are also friendly and efficient to do your check up and prepare you for the main appointment. Dr. Phan is amazing – very friendly, professional and takes time to check on you as a person before beginning the work. She did an amazing job with my cleaning – efficient, thorough and as painless as cleanings can be. Overall, I had a great experience with Dr. Phan and her team and I highly recommend them to everyone.

With a Covid clean, bright and cheery, and easily accessible environment, this dental practice is more than just a dentist’s office. Everyone here seems happy to assist. If you need work done, your options are clearly laid out for you. Just as importantly, the quality of work Dr. Phan does is exceptional. Everyone here seems to be happy as they interact with you. This just adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Wouldn’t it be great if all dental practices were like this?

I am so delighted with my first time visit! Mara was ever so gracious and patient as I filled in all of the questions. Stacy was very gentle during the cleaning and x rays and Dr. Sheena was extremely helpful in answering all of my questions. So grateful to the person who recommended this dental practice so highly. Now I know why!!!

Bob M. from San Carlos, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today’s appointment was a routine cleaning and check-up. I was seen right on time. Stacy had checked my records and noted it was time for X-rays. The cleaning was thorough and Stacy even spent a little extra effort on a couple of coffee and wine stains. Dr. Phan did her usual thorough check-up and was her usual warm and humorous self. I always feel welcomed and important here.

Afa'ese Y. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was in an excruciating amount of pain today. I hadn’t had one minute of sleep because the pain was so intense. After making about 15 calls to different dental offices, no one would squeeze me in just for an exam so I could at least get the pain addressed. (Pro-tip do not sign up for DMO if you don’t regularly go to the dentist like you’re supposed to.) After so many failed calls, I almost gave up and just drove to the E.R. But after seeing me in pain my boyfriend started calling around but this time for the best out of pocket service. He reached Dr Phan and she managed to squeeze us in just for an exam! I don’t know what it is about this office but it feels extra welcoming, and very professional at the same time. I do confess that I walked in totally high because that was the only pain remedy that was working and helping me sleep a little. Regardless, Dr Phan and the team took care of me. The best part is that they knew my insurance wouldn’t work and that I’d be paying out of pocket. But Dr Phan started me on antibiotics and pain medication that would get me at least to the next dentist in my network. I paid an affordable fee without insurance, and would go back just for the staff. I think the level care I received is what everyone else should be shooting for. Thank you!!

Diane C. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Can not say enough about what a great experience it was to meet with Dr. Phan and her staff. I had not been to a dentist in awhile and was a bit apprehensive, the doctor and all her staff were welcoming. Dr. Phan was very attentive, hearing my concerns and easily engaged in thoughtful conversation. After a comprhensive examination and a thorough cleaning by Linda W. I strongly recommend this practice and look forward to my next appointment. Thank you . . .

Barb D. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have total confidence in all the staff at San Mateo Dental Arts from the front desk, the dental hygienist, the dental assistant to Dr. Phan.  I have been a patient of this practice since the 1970s and have gone through a number of changes but have always been very pleased with the care I have received and continue to receive.  They have earned every one of the five stars!!!

Weyman Wong (Source: Google)


Both my wife and I were seen by Dr. Phan’s associate, Dr. Christina Chen, today and couldn’t be happier, leaving the office like a luxury car that’s just had a major tune up and good to go for another 100,000 miles. Once again, we noted and felt the warmth and cordiality of everyone on staff from the front office to the back. This is a great team! They deserve and earned their 5 stars.

I found a dentist that I want to see forever! Great group of woman from the people in reception to Dr. Phan herself. They took the time to explain everything and answered all my questions. ( I ask a lot of questions). The best part is it felt like I was visiting friends. I would highly recommend San Mateo Dental Arts for your next dental exam.

K W. from Half Moon Bay, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great experience! Very knowledgeable, solid, excellent dentist. Highly recommend Dr. Phan, and she has turned out to be a good successor to Dr. Baker, my dentist of many years. Many thanks to Dr. Baker for my excellent dental care over the years, and thanks to Dr. Phan who has made the transition for patients easy and provided great care so far.

Mary A. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have lived in dental chairs much of my life. When Sheena Phan took over the practice I knew I would have no problems because she helped me when just an intern. She has fixed and created new crowns, filled teeth and even glued me back together. She and her staff really know what they are doing. Everyone I have dealt with in the office has a smiling face and a great attitude. This may sound strange but I have always gone to a male dentist prior to Dr. Phan. She has all the new equipment that anyone can have. But the thing that I just realized is that her hands are long and slim and they sure get into your mouth easier. I would definitely recommend her and her staff.

Jeni W. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Sheena Phan is the best dentist I have ever had. Her front office staff takes time to get to know you and helps you efficiently. Every time I visit, I am greeted professionally and warmly. The service is provided efficiently by every technician I have had. Dr. Phan is straightforward while being friendly. She will present what you need to know in an understandable way and always provides a variety of options to get your issue resolved. I highly recommend Dr. Phan and San Mateo Dental Arts for you and your family. Once you go in the first time, you will never go anywhere else.

Sylvia Omuro (Source: Google)


The moment I get to Dr. Sheena Pham’s dental office I feel so comfortable that I know I am going to be treated so special again. Everyone are so professional and when they greet you the feeling is like I belong to a big family. The warm greetings with their sweet smile says you are always welcome to visit them.That is what I call the Dental Art Smile after you leave the dental office of Dr. Sheena Pham. Thank you to the staff who are so warmth not only Dr. Sheena Pham. I’m thankful when she explains your concerns how to take care of your teeth. Come and see for yourself.

Laura S. from Belmont, CA (Source: Yelp)


I sought out Dr Phan for her cosmetic dentistry expertise, and I am very happy with the results. Both she and her office were prompt and professional before my appointment and in person. The office was clean and soothing, and followed Covid protocols. My procedure was minor but Dr Phan really listened to my concern, and addressed it. I appreciated her thoroughness and patience. Overall an excellent experience!
