The 1 star review must have been the exception. I and many of my friends have had only wonderful experiences at Dunhuang Perio.
Several of my friends referred me to this dentist, and we all love her! Dr. Chen has been my dentist now for almost 3 years. I came in with severe gum disease, but Dr. Chen set up a very reasonably priced 4-year treatment plan for me. (I have dental insurance, so I can only do so much each year.) Now the inflammation and pain is all gone in every part of my mouth but one-- and that one is only because it's supposed to be treated next year!
Dr. Chen genuinely cares for her patients. Her staff works with a professional yet outgoing attitude. I was honestly surprised at how reasonable her prices are considering she is a periodontal specialist dentist! The office is beautiful and bathrooms are clean (rare in Chinatown!). Don't go in on Saturdays if possible-- These are their busiest days and wait time could get long.
Tip on pricing: If you have insurance, you're good to go! For big procedures you pay deductible + minimum copay. For regular cleanings, fillings, exams-- all free!
I heard from my friend that if you pay cash, you have to pay more (obviously), but you get huge discounts too. She got an implant for only $1700!--and this is a specialist dentist we're talking about! These are quality implants!
Basically, Dr. Chen works magic with her hands. Her procedures are nearly painless and she performs them incredibly quickly and skillfully. Prices are great, the folks are nice. So what more could you want from your dentist?
