Dr Yen is a great dental care provider. I have recommended him to people at work. His advice is conservative, honest which is hard to find in dentists around this area. He is generally happy and cordial with all his patients. 10/10 would recommend.
Alex Yen is an awesome dentist!! I've been going to him for a few years now and every time it's been a great experience. The staff is very friendly and the dental assistants always do a great job. I got a teeth whitening procedure done which isn't the most comfortable thing to have done, but it went by super fast and was done well. Dr. Yen always explains what he sees on X-rays or with your teeth so it's easy to understand. He also encourages and teaches best practices so you keep your mouth clean in between visits. Definitely recommend!
Alex Yen is a fantastic dentist. I initially only went to him for a cleaning, but he noticed some white spots and stains on my front teeth that had bothered me for years and offered a few options for how to fix them. I went back recently to have that done, and he did an awesome job. My teeth look perfect, the process was quick (took ~45 minutes), and I no longer feel self-conscious about how those teeth look. Dr. Yen is confident and professional and explains clearly what he is doing. His services are very affordable. I'm a Stanford grad student on Cardinal care. My cleaning was free, and 3 sealants plus the cosmetic procedure were only $150, even with minimal coverage from my dental insurance. The front desk is helpful and friendly, and they respond promptly to questions about scheduling, cost estimates, etc.
Look forward to your dental visit.
