Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Best care I have experienced from a dentist in my lifetime! Dr. Chua is very thorough and always careful to explain what he is going to do before he does it. He constantly checks in during a procedure to make sure you are comfortable and pain free. I get excellent results and aftercare as well - I got text messages to check in on me! I could not recommend another dentist more highly. He is considerate, kind, and an excellent professional. You will not find a better dentist elsewhere!

Dr. Chua took a lot of time to learn about me and go into depth on dental science, my teeth, and pros and cons of different treatment paths. I appreciated his willingness to answer questions and provide technical responses that help me understand what's going on with my teeth and how to improve them.

I've been coming to Dr. Chua for about 4 years and I have really enjoyed his services. He is very straight-forward, but also very caring. He is always checking in with me during procedures to make sure I am OK. When I leave his office I am always very satisfied with the results. Thanks Dr. Chua.
