A personal note from Dr. Chen…

Your Neighborhood Orthodontist

Diaper changes, first steps, Little League, learning to drive, cheerleading and prom. Time waits for no one and before we realize it, our children are all grown, out of the house and having kids of their own. But before all this happens, we do all we can to provide them with the advantages we did not have, helping them to go far in life.

It is with these same desires for our children that my wife and I decided to move to the Dallas area. We are eager to contribute to the community with my orthodontic practice. My staff and I are here to help!

Today, getting braces is a rite of passage for most children. We all realize that straighter teeth means improved oral health, a prettier smile, more self-confidence and better social acceptance. I myself greatly benefited from braces years ago. In fact, my experience was so positive that I became an orthodontist to help others. One cannot put a price on a child’s smile!

My office philosophy is: Excellence, Honesty, Compassion, and Value for my patients. It is our goal to treat you with the same quality, attention and consideration that we would have for our own family. My treatment recommendations reflects the same philosophy. “What would I do and recommend if this were my own son or daughter in the chair?”

I realize that some people may be intimidated about seeing an orthodontist, but don’t worry, we’ll take good care of you! We are here to help you achieve a healthier and better smile. I look forward to meeting you at your orthodontic exam and consultation!


Wishing you the best!
