Dr. Chen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chen "Dr. John Chen was born in Taiwan and spent part of his early childhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He moved to and grew up in the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada. Although fine arts is one of his life passions, Dr. Chen decided against art school; instead, he studied at the University of British Columbia, where he received a bachelor’s degree in microbiology and immunology in 2003. In 2008, Dr. Chen received his DDS degree from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry, Los Angeles. While at USC, he earned various academic awards, including dean’s honors. He also participated in various selective programs, including oral surgery, aesthetics, prosthodontics, and orthodontics. He was elected into the OKU Honor Society and graduated an alumni member (top 12 percent of that year’s graduating class). Immediately following graduation, Dr. Chen was accepted into the Advanced Prosthodontics program at USC. There, he spent an extra three years studying, planning, and treating aesthetic, implant, and full mouth reconstruction cases. During his residency, he was part of the USC faculty where he taught removable, fixed, and implant prosthodontics on the clinic floor. He also enjoyed private practice as a part-time associate dentist in Irvine, California. Dr. Chen completed his prosthodontic training in 2013 before settling down in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Chen enjoys fine arts media such as charcoal, pencil, watercolor, and oil. He has also been a Kendo practitioner for many years and was one of the founding members of the USC Kendo Club. Currently, he holds the rank of shodan and trains at the Rocky Mountain Kendo Federation."
