Welcome to our office

Welcome to the office of Dr. James Y. Chen.  We are one of the leading dental care providers in Jackson County using the latest technology in a state of the art office. Our staff is well- trained, friendly and helpful in making sure that your dental needs are carefully met. We welcome new patients! Our practice continues to grow because our patients continually refer their family and friends to us.

Gentle dental care that’s hard to beat

In our office we've seen first-hand how an ounce of prevention can provide a lifetime of healthy gums and teeth. That's why as a regular part of our ongoing dental care, we pay special attention to the early detection of all oral disease.

For those smiles in need of special care, we provide advanced treatments such as composite fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays, multiple and single-unit crowns and porcelain veneers, porcelain bridgework, implants, surgical extractions, TMD treatment, in-office or at home bleaching, as well as custom nightguards and athletic mouthguards. In short, we provide you with all treatment needed to help keep you happy, healthy, and smiling.

We care for people, not just your teeth

Each person (and their smile) is unique and comes with their own specific concerns. So we will carefully craft a treatment plan that incorporates advanced dental procedures that best meet your needs. Throughout every dentist visit, we will not only take the time to answer any questions you have, but also to carefully explain each procedure so you can feel confident that you are experiencing the best care available.

Each member of our dental team has trained together to create an environment that assures each patient, young and old, receives the results they want in the most comfortable and relaxed manner possible. In addition, to support our care we use only the highest quality dental materials and partner with only the finest dental laboratories.

Combine all this with the friendly, laid-back, familial atmosphere of our office and it is no wonder we have so many patients who trust Dr. Chen and the staff at Lifetime Dental Care to keep their smile healthy and beautiful.

Come by and meet our team; take an office tour. See for yourself what a difference our style and level of personal dental care makes.
