Dr. Lewis Chen

Dr. Lewis Chen was born and raised in New York.

After graduation, he completed his residency at the Bronx VA, which is nationally known to be the most prestigious, competitive, and comprehensive program in the country due to its strong focus on full-mouth reconstructions, cosmetics, prosthodontics, endodontics, and oral surgery.

His primary focus is to cater to patients and exceed their expectations.
