Dr. Eileen Chen-Mizuuchi
Dr. Eileen Chen loves practicing dentistry because it provides her with the opportunity to combine her interests in health and science, art, and caring for people. She loves treating patients of all ages and sharing in their lives. She has a passion for helping patients meet their oral health goals whether they are general, restorative, or cosmetic.
Dr. Chen was born and raised in a small town in western Oklahoma. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism, and from the University of Central Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Dr. Chen earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, where she was on the honor roll for all four years. After dental school, Dr. Chen was accepted to a prestigious residency program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where she received intensive training in cosmetic dentistry, dental implantology, and oral conscious sedation.
Dr. Chen values staying educated and up-to-date on the newest developments in dentistry and dental health. She stays active in her professional organizations, attends numerous continuing education courses, and participates in local study clubs to ensure she is always providing her patients with the highest quality care possible. Dr. Chen also values patient education. She believes that well-educated patients make the best decisions and, therefore, commits herself to spending time with each patient to ensure that they fully understand all of their treatment options. She also dedicates herself to listening to her patients’ needs and desires, and tailors their dental experience to their individual, unique needs.
Dr. Chen is a member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and Dallas County Dental Society.
When she is not with patients, Dr. Chen cherishes spending time with her family and friends. Dr. Chen and her husband enjoy traveling, discovering new local restaurants, and working on projects around the house.
