About Your Dentist
"In proportion as one renders service, he/she becomes great." - Booker T. Washington
A Mission to Serve Others
From when she was a young girl, Dr. Chen knew she wanted to take care of others and live a life of service. Coming from a family of healthcare practitioners of all kinds (veterinarians, pharmacists, physicians, chiropractors, etc.), Dr. Chen was raised with a philosophy of providing care for those around her. She was blessed to have been mentored by many, but she is especially grateful to her father, who is a dentist back home in New York. Ultimately, she strove to follow in his footsteps and graduated from his alma mater; first for her undergraduate degree in 2012 and for her doctorate degree in 2016. Upon graduation, Dr. Chen went on to serve our country in the US Navy for four years, treating sailors and Marines on land or at sea. She joins us with the goal of service to others and strives to provide exceptional oral health care for her patients.
