Dr. Steven Chen

Dr. Steven, as patients like to call him, was born in Taiwan and moved to Los Angeles at an early age.  Following in the footsteps of his father, who is an experienced prosthodontist practicing in Taipei, he is ecstatic to implement the skills he has mastered throughout his career in his own practice.  

In addition, Dr. Steven spends countless hours in continuing education every year to further hone his clinical skills. He prides himself in his conservative approach to dentistry and his emphasis on proper maintenance to ensure oral disease prevention. He enjoys his daily interactions with his patients and knowing that his work is helping them reach their goals for their oral health.

Growing up in Southern California, Dr. Steven was excited to move back from the east coast and to provide excellent dental care in the adjacent East Los Angeles Area. In his free time, he loves to spend time with his friends and family, try out new food, and work out at the gym. But most importantly, enjoy the beautiful weather Los Angeles has to offer.

If you are looking for a great dentist in Monterey Park, Montebello, or East Los Angeles check out Dr. Chen. I have had check-ups, cleanings, root canals, and bridge work. I can confidently recommend the staff here. The dental work is first rate, and the work is done in a reasonable amount of time. I need evening hours or Saturdays and have always been able to get an appointment quickly. The most important thing to me is that Dr. Chen is a GENTLE, fast working dentist. My mom is 91, and he is GENTLE enough for her!
