As a new patient in pain, It was thrilling to receive an immediate appointment. The staff is kind and helpful. Dr. Chen is very patient and spent extra time explaining my options. I feel so fortunate to have found him. After my appointment something happened that he had to be called to the phone with questions about my case. He was so kind and caring. He ordered an antibiotic for me and scheduled another time to see me right away. This is a great dentist with a wonderful staff.

Great overall experience! I came to replace my missing filling and Dr Chen was very gentle and talked me through every step. The numbing process was completely painless which is rare to find. The office has a very attentive stuff and applaudable pricing transparency. They called my insurance company multiple times and made sure I understood everything concerning the payment…. I’ve been to several offices in the past that did not bother explaining the payment process whatsoever which resulted in high bills and often times unnecessary up charges…This practice is different. Highly recommended!

Dr. Chen is very skilled and tolerant of patients’ individual needs and is very willing to use alternative methods to achieve the mutual goal of patient comfort, safety and positive outcome, which is my experience. I have been coming to this provider for many years and he is one of the best dentists I have ever worked with in the capacity as a very nervous and highly sensitive patient. Dr. Chen has a great deal of patience and skill in treating people in this category with a high degree of success. His fantastic reputation precedes him!

There was a time when I  had a fear of going to  dentists, and would stay away for years even, but since I found the dental office of Dr. Chen I have been going regularly for my checkups and dental care. The staff is friendly, accomodating, and very helpful. I am always pleased with the pain-free, excellent dental procedures I have had at this office, and the dental hygienists are absolutely the best!  Oh, and the television…I boast to my co-workers that I am privileged to watch my programs during my procedures…this also is a plus for me.

My wife, two adult children and I have been coming to see Dr. Chen for over 25 years. He, hygienists, staff and Mamie are friendly, professional and accommodating. He very knowledgeable and professional. He makes you feel relaxed and at ease as he looks into your dental care? My family and I travel for over an hour to come twice a year for our cleaning and other dental work, as needed. Dr. Chen is by far the ‘BEST’ dentist in Southern California! If you are looking for a great dentist, he is the one. I don’t  write many reviews, but I wanted to post this one. I highly recommend his office and will make you feel VIP. We are happy to hear that his son, Scott, (also a dentist), is joining his practice. A+

I have been coming to Dr. Chen for over 20 years. I have moved far from Glendale, but still make the over an hour trip twice a year to visit Dr. Chen and his wonderful staff. I love that both Dr. Chens are honest and conservative in their take on dentistry. What I mean by that, is they observe the potential issues going on with my teeth and I never feel like a treatment is being done unnecessarily. Some dentists will tell you, you need x y and z done when you don’t, and rip you off. This is not the case at this dental office. The hygienists are awesome. I love Ada and Larissa. They always take their time, are thorough, and leave my teeth extremely clean. My favorite person at this office, however is Mamie. Mamie is always friendly, kind and pleasant to deal with. She understands I travel far, and always does her best to accommodate my schedule. I really appreciate she makes that extra effort for me. Come to this dental office. You won’t regret it!

I’ve been going here since I was 5 or 6 and my parents had been coming for years before that based on someone elses recommendation.  Even when I moved to Orange County, I continued to trek to Dr. Chens dentistry after multiple uncomfortable visits with other dentists. Their hygienists have these amazing tricks to make X-rays amazingly comfortable and don’t do those awkward conversations most people try to start. After 20 years of entrusting my teeth to Dr. Chen, I felt it was time to get a review out. Their staff never forgets a patients face, name, and even their pets. Two Molars Way Up! Try him out and you’ll never go anywhere else again.

After an awful experience at a kid’s dental place I decided to look for another office near my area. Other reviewers mentioned how well their children responded here so I decided to give it a try. I give them 5 stars for their customer service, flexibility, and dental techniques. Mimi, the receptionist, was able to give me a same day appointment for my daughter on a Saturday! We only waited about 10-15 minutes in the waiting room before they called us in. Let me say that Dr. Rosana Chen is awesome!!! My 5 year old daughter went in for a baby tooth extraction and she explained what she was doing step by step. She took the time to make my daughter feel comfortable. My daughter loved it there so much that she even says she wants to be a Dentist when she grows up. After the appointment Mimi took my daughter the toy bin to pick out a small toy. My daughter looks forward to seeing the dentist every 6 months now. My husband and I were so happy with the service provided here that we also switched to this dental office. I recommend this office for both adults and children.

I had a crown fall out on Superbowl weekend. My dentist office was open but refused to see me (Cunning Dental in Mount Clair) even though there was a Dr. in the office. They also could not refer me to another office so I went on Yelp. Looked for a dentist open on Saturdays. I called a few but once I spoke to the office manager, Mamie this was the place for me. I explained my situation and even though this was a half day for the office and completely booked, They squeezed me in. She said there would be a bit of a wait but when I arrived and completed the paper work, I was taken right in. The dental assistant Mari was friendly and had me cracking up. The dentist, Dr R. Chen (A female dentist) was amazing. She was gentle and thorough and I think I found my new dentist. The location is deceiving. It looks like a hole in the wall and next to a cigar shop. The waiting area is small but its clean and once you enter the exam area is spacious and modern. I have never known a female dentist and I’m glad I found this place 🙂

I am deathly afraid of the dentist. Usually they will recommend me being put to sleep or be given some kind of laughing gas or sedative so I dont shake and fling my arms everywhere. I was in dire need of a deep cleaning and my fiance had me to to Dr. Chen. I just had the first quarter done today and I left feeling pretty good. I was numbed properly and the hygienist was very patient with me, which I always appreciate. She was informative and gentle and paid attention to whether or not I was in pain. Thank you for making my visit pleasant and not traumatizing me 🙂

My wife, two children (adults now) and I have been coming to see Dr. Chen for over 25 years. He and his staff, specially, Mamie, are very knowledgeable, professional, helpful and friendly. I feel relaxed and at ease knowing that I have the ‘BEST’ dentist in Southern California caring for my/our dental care. I have referred my family and friends which see him as well. I must add that I/we travel over 40 miles to see him, as needed, from the Inland Empire. Although, it is rare that I write reviews, I wanted to post this one.
I highly recommend Dr. Chen & his staff to anyone looking for a dentist that will make you feel unique in caring for your dental care and hygiene. We are happy to hear that his son, Scott, is joining his practice. A+

The dental work I had done and the experience at this office was excellent.  It had been, well, two decades since I’d seen a dentist and I had some catching up to do.  I needed xrays, three cracked molars needed capping, and I needed deep teeth cleaning.  This involved a lot of work and visits to complete.  Dr. Chen is a highly skilled and very personable dentist.  The discomfort of the work was minimal especially considering the amount that needed to be done.  The office staff was excellent and the atmosphere was pleasant.  People clearly enjoyed working there.  One of the molars had cracked very close to the nerve and Dr. Chen was able to cap the tooth without a root canal, which took a great deal of skill as some of the tooth had to be ground away to accept the cap. Over a year later my new caps are doing very well with no problems.  I recommend this dentist and office very highly!

David W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


TL:DR – Very professional, very good at cleaning my teeth, and they actually listen to any problems that you might be having.   —————— Usually I give a pretty snarky/sarcastic review, but this time I’m just sticking to the tooth (truth.)  Hahaha.  I’ve been going to TF Chen’s for about 3.5 years now, twice each year, and they are amazing.  I go to them to get my teeth cleaned and in one instance to have a cavity filled.  They are incredibly professional and have an excellent reservation system.  Not only do they call you ahead of your appointment, but they will also send you a text the day of to remind you of the appointment.   As for the dentists, I typically make appointments with Candace and have found her to be very meticulous while also delicate in her work.  Unlike some other dentists who kind of just shove their hands into your mouth, Candace is very light with her touch, while still making sure all your plaque is cleaned off.  I also had some issues with my gums with them receding, and unlike previous dentists, she deduced that I was brushing too hard.  I switched to a softer toothbrush, and a couple months later my gums were recovering.   I’m not a big fan of going to the dentist, but TF Chen and crew have definitely lessened that anxiety.

It’s really difficult to find a trustworthy dentist in Los Angeles — most will rush you through your appointment before trying to sell you some expensive mouthguard you don’t need. That’s why I am SO FREAKING RELIEVED to find the dental staff at T. F. Chen. Everyone working here is so chill, so kind, and so friendly, and genuinely thoughtful about their patients and the dental care you receive. Their prices are affordable, care is excellent and I didn’t have to wait three months to see someone about my toothache. Not to mention, they were more than happy to suggest more affordable suggestions for expensive dental items. Parking is free and easy. Can’t recommend this dental office enough.

Dave K. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chen’s office is always courteous and helpful.  They will always give you proper treatment as well as preventing future concerns.  The office is in a very convenient location and will even take appointments if something is wrong.  They welcome almost all insurance companies and will go the extra mile for the care you deserve.  You will not be disappointed if you want proper care.

After going to several dentists, I’ve finally settled with Dr. Chen’s Dentistry. There are a couple reasons why: 1. This is not ran like a business. A lot of dentist that I’ve tried treats their practice like a business, in that you’re in there just as a monetary transaction. I find Dr. Chen’s approach to his patients are very different. He’ll recommend actions and procedures that are actually necessary, not because it’ll make him the most money. 2. The staff truly care about you. Again, the way Dr. Chen runs his practice flows throughout the staff as well. I feel that the staff truly care about how you feel and the external factors that may cause you to be uncomfortable. 3. Location is excellent. There’s a strip mall right next door, so you can send your wife and kids to do some shopping while you get your teeth worked on. Very convenient. So if you’re looking for a dentist that really cares about your oral health instead of just making a quick buck, Dr. Chen is the right dentist for you Highly recommended!

OK so I hated dentists since I was little. I was horribly traumatized by a dentist when I was 6. all I can say is it was a pretty expensive place and they did not use anesthesia plus they would not let my mom or dad in to hold my hand. With that I have only gone to dentist when I really had to. My husband actually found this dentist and with him by my side holding my hand we visited Dr. Chen. OMG such nice staff and Dr. Chen himself is so cool. They are so accommodating. When you walk in you are greeted by either Mayme ( I know I am spelling her name wrong…sorry) or Marie then you wait less then 10mins to see Dr. Chen. All the staff that works there are so nice. From the girl who takes the X-rays to Ada who does teeth cleaning.  I love the fact that while you are in the dental chair they have like these little flat screen TV’s you can watch. It’s not like other places where the channel is set they actually hand you the remote so you can flip around and yes they have cable. All in all I love this place. Dr. Chen recently removed himself from our dental group, but we love it so much that we still go even though it’s more out of pocket.
