Dr. Charng is one of the few good dentist left in the field. He is very kind, gentle when it comes to getting local anesthetic. I could write a whole book of nothing but positive things to say about him and his staff. The parking is amazing and his office has a warm welcoming feeling to it. Very clean inside and outside and his dental chairs are extremely comfortable. I accidentally fell into a good deep sleep when he was working on me. That was a bit embarrassing but he didn’t mind at all. Dr. Charng explains ones treatment plan in full detail leaving one with no questions to ask.  He did ask if I had any questions but when someone literally breaks down ones treatment plan to the littlest detail and educate one to prevent future problems what’s left to ask. Again highly recommend dentist that I was recommended by a close friend. I hope this review helps anyone who is is looking for a dentist who is not scary and that is not going to rip them off. Dr Charng thank you for taking care of me and my wife, you could say I had a CHARNGMING experience. Lol (ok I’ll stop) I’ll be back for my 6mo check up

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Charng and his staff. I haven’t been to a dentist in years and have been scared to go in but my tooth sensitivity finally got to be too much. Teri at the front desk was more than helpful, she answered all my questions about insurances. The hygienist (sorry I forgot your name!) really took her time to clean my teeth, and without judgement!! Dr. Charng then did a thorough exam and found two cavities!! Thankfully he says they aren’t too bad, and now I’m going back next week to have them filled. Thank you for making an intimidating experience comfortable!

So… I’m going to be honest here. I haven’t been to the dentist in… when did I get married, 3 years ago… okay, so two years before that. Five years. Possibly longer, because my family dentist (who my entire family has seen for years, YEARS) is all the way in Hacienda Heights and I live in Monrovia now. So, I am not driving through traffic for that. Fortunately, my friend told me about her dentist was that actually close to me that recently opened. I was like… 1. Does he take Kaiser’s Delta plan? 2. Just HOW close is he? 1. Yes. 2. He’s at the border of Monrovia and Arcadia! I’M AT THE BORDER OF MONROVIA AND ARCADIA. Okay… I made an appointment and the receptionist was SO FRIENDLY. She was so accommodating to my schedule (I only require EARLY mornings) and she was able to find me an appointment to just do a check up and X-rays. Again… I told her it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a dentist. I will have a lot of problems. I mean, I do brush often and floss, but not like CRAZY obsessively. Who has time to carefully floss after every meal?!?! Anyways, the receptionist was wonderful and I went in and got my x-rays done. It’s ALL DIGITAL NOW. Okay, this shows you how long it’s been since I’ve seen a dentist. All that stuff that they used to do… IT’S DIGITAL NOW. I feel like an old lady who just found out how to use Facebook. So the tech was able to do all my scans and then the doctor came in and looked at the X-Rays and at my teeth. Such a NICE guy. Young, which is great because it popped in my head – I could have this guy as my family dentist for YEARS. My future child (not pregnant) will be able to see this guy cuz he won’t be retiring anytime soon! Dr. Charng was very professional. He wanted to show me my X-Rays and explained what he saw. He took photos of my mouth – even though I said “Nah, I trust you, man.” He still wanted to show me to understand. So… thank goodness I didn’t need a root canal. BUT I did have cavities and needed a deep cleaning – not that bad. My hygiene is fine, thank you very much. So I made another appointment with him… had to make two because i have to clean one side and then the next week another side. DON’T JUDGE ME. Dr. C did not judge me for that. He says it happens. HAHAHA. I love how chill he is. So I go into my deep cleaning and they have to give me stuff to numb my mouth to clean my gums… and it was completely fine. I am usually scared of needles, but OMG. Dr. Charng was like a wizard cuz I didn’t see the needle and because he numbed me with this swab, I barely felt the needle. Then he went away at my teeth cleaning and seriously… he was flawless. He didn’t rush me at all. Cleaning my teeth and doing the cavities took about two hours – WHICH I AM SO THANKFUL for cuz he didn’t rush me. So I know he did a good job. When he did my fillings, he kept filing it down until I felt comfortable. Every time he did it, he’d stop and go, “How does that feel” and I’d say No. Then he’d do it again. And I have to tell you… this guy has the patience of a saint because I am a talkative person who likes to joke around during sessions… so yes, I’m THAT patient. He would just laugh and explain things to me, cuz I was like a child asking “What does that do? What does this do?” BECAUSE… I haven’t seen a dentist in SO long. When my face was numb, I sang “I can’t feel my face when I’m with you…” I don’t think he heard it, but it was stuck in my head. Seriously, patience of a saint. He did a great job. Although I am sore as heck because it’s been a long ass time since I’ve been to the dentist, it feels so clean and really good. I now have a doctor to go to that is local and really good. The guy didn’t try to shortchange me or try to sell me products or any of that shady stuff. This shall be my family dentist, where I make my husband and future child come here… and then their future child… if they stay in SGV, of course… and until he retires. Also, his staff is awesome. The receptionist called me to let me know about earlier appointments and my coverage for dental. Seriously, GRADE A service. The tech was so nice too. We got along talking about Beyonce. YASSSS. PARKING: Guys… this parking lot is HUGE. You can throw parties back there. So it will fit tons of cars. And FREE parking…Guys… it’s also across the street from the 99 Cents Only Store. What?! So if you’re waiting for someone getting their teeth checked or cleaned, you can just go there to waste time! What is this life!??

Dr. Charng was able to identify and solve a reoccurring issue with my crown that no other dentist could. This is a testament to his skills and I am very thankful to him. I don’t usually leave reviews,  but combined with his sincere demeanor and amazingly friendly staff I cannot recommend his office enough. Finally a dentist I can trust!

I used to go see Dr. Charng in West Covina before he started his own practice. Thank goodness I have found his personal office! Dr. Charng is by far one of the best dentists around! He is extremely personable, friendly, and patient. He is very thorough with his exam, and he is really straightforward and honest with the work he recommends. I feel very comfortable and at ease with his work. He always explains the process of the procedure as it is happening, and he makes sure I understand, which I greatly appreciated. On top of that, his office is very tidy and clean, yet homey and welcoming. His staff is also professional and courteous, which is a huge bonus! I totally trust Dr. Charng as my dentist, and I am really glad to have found my forever dentist. I would highly recommend Dr. Charng to anyone looking for a great dentist and a friendly staff!

My crown came off while eating dinner. I don’t like how much my usual dentist nags, and I thought another dentist my friend recommended was too chatty, so I asked around for recommendations. A friend recommended Dr. Charng, so I did what everyone does, I looked up reviews of him everywhere. One particular review mentioned that he was not judge-y, so I was sold! I booked through their online system and not only did Dr. Charng’s office get back to me within an hour, they got me a Saturday appointment! Dr. Charng was professional, courteous and calm. He took his time to explain to me what my next steps are and didn’t shame me for not going in to see dentists often. I really truly appreciate that. Although Dr. Charng is a bit of a drive from me, good dentists that you instantly trust are hard to find. His office is also very clean and there is plenty of parking!

I just went my new dentist today UDental they have a great service they know what they are doing to your teeth I really recomenend this dentist. I’m so glad that I switch to him they were more friendly then my previous one. So if you need the dentist I highly recommend this one. My first time to have my teeth clean in my power wheelchair. The staff is very friendly and detail with my teeth

I’ve been to many dentists before and Dr Charng is by far the best!  He is so gentle with his words and hands.  He extracted my wisdom teeth and his shot injection technique was so smooth I didn’t even feel it.  And the extraction itself was quick and painless!  His prices are very reasonable and I would recommend him to all my friends

I had a dental emergency during covid-19 and wasn’t established with a dentist and have Denti-cal insurance. That’s 4 frightening strikes against me all at once, not good when your in excruciating pain. I reviewed many dentists that take my insurance and made many phone calls mostly hitting roadblock after roadblock because of the pandemic and because of my insurance. When I called Dr Charngs office, he answered the phone, he takes my insurance, has wonderful reviews, and he said he is taking new patients and would open his office to help me! What a relief! Dr Charng has a very conveniently located stand alone building with lots of parking. The office is pleasant, modern and very clean. Since we’re in the middle of a pandemic and dental offices haven’t opened yet (May 5th), he does my paperwork, takes my x-rays, does it all. He’s very kind and very professional and is taking extra precautions with all the PPE’s. Most importantly he told me what was wrong with my tooth right away, I was given a written diagnosis and copy of the x-ray, and he referred me to an oral surgeon (which by the way was another hurdle I had to get through with all the above challenges). A few days later I was meeting with an oral surgeon and Dr Charngs diagnosis of the tooth was spot-on, correct diagnosis was verified. I’m very thankful to him and I will be bringing my family to this practice from now on. Thank you Dr Charng!

Dr. Steven and his staff are so friendly. I had the best experience ever when I had my teeth cleaning. He explains everything and his hygienists are the best! They are very friendly and thorough. You will get the best service. I highly recommend him to anyone!! I will definitely be returning

Karen P. from La Verne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Charng took the place of my long time dentist Craig Potter. I will admit after many years with Dr.Potter I was skeptical about a new dentist. Dr. Charng is a terrific dentist, kind and beyond patient.  I had a dental issue that was really trying my patience and Dr. Charng was so incredibly helpful in getting to the source of my problem. He never gave up and didn’t keep charging me.  He found the problem and it was taken care of. He is young and has the latest technology.  I look forward to going many years with this very knowledgeable and skilled dentist. His dental hygienist Holly is the best I have ever encountered .  She knows her stuff and you can feel confident in her hands. His front desk lady Terri is so incredibly helpful and works to get you in when you need to be seen. She is always so pleasant and beyond patient. His entire staff is terrific. Thank you Dr. Charng and staff for making going to the dentist a good experience

I’m not the best patient when it comes to scheduling a yearly dental cleaning because I am deathly afraid of the dentist. I’ve had lots of bad experiences before; the roughness from the dentists, sights of the equipments, and the scary noises from the equipments aren’t really ideal for me. I’ve been looking for a new dentist for awhile. Good doctors are really hard to come by. I wanted to make sure I was going to a honest, patient, and reputable dentist. I was referred to Steven. He owns his own office in Arcadia. I have been waiting and putting my teeth cleaning off for way too long that I decided to finally make an appointment. Most dental offices were packed and/or couldn’t take me the day of. I only needed and wanted a teeth cleaning. However, Terri (front desk) and Steven took me right in! Thank you Terri for your hospitality and making me feel right at home when I first stepped in. The parking lot is ample and spacious. The entire staff was so welcoming and friendly. The office was tidy, modern, and well kept! He has updated technologies and equipments. His dental hygienist, Mikki (Mickey?) was sweet and gentle with me when it came to taking X-rays. I have a super sensitive gag reflex and kept messing up. I felt bad because she had to do a couple of tries. She was able to manage, still have a smile on her face, and be patient with me. Afterwards, Steven introduced himself and explained / showed me my X-rays on his laptop. In the end I received a dental cleaning and fixed a small cavity that was found upon the X-rays. He was able to get everything done in one day! During the process, he would explain step by step what was going to happen next. He was so kind, gentle, and extremely patient. He answered all my questions and was very thorough in his work. He demonstrated how I should be flossing and brushing my teeth correctly. Guess the entire time I was brushing incorrectly and brushed too hard. At the end of our session, he gifted me a toothbrush. 🙂 Steven did a phenomenal job from beginning to end! I would highly recommend him! I’ll definitely be back in 6 months and won’t be as terrified!”
