Bellevue Dentist Peter Chien graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Chien, born in Taiwan, came to the U.S. at an early age and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Afterwards he enrolled at Loma Linda University, graduating with a Masters of Public Health in Epidemiology, where he also worked at the Center for Health Research engaging in medical statistical research. He then matriculated at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and received a Doctoral of Dental Medicine, graduating with clinical honors.
Dr. Chien is married to his wife Dr. Miki (who is also a dentist) and together they have a daughter who is currently in middle school, along with a spunky and energetic Yorkshire Terrier named Milo. The family is actively involved in the community, and enjoys being involved with the local school, church, and family trips.
Dr. Chien has special interests in maintaining and restoring beautiful smiles, and loves working with children and all family members alike. He strives to provide a relaxed and gentle atmosphere where patients feel comfortable. He has a strong desire to keep abreast of the latest dental technologies and research.
Dr. Chien continues to take advanced educational courses beyond what is required, with special emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, endodontics, and oral surgery. He looks forward to continuing to implement the latest technology as dentistry and medicine continue to evolve, yet he continues to maintain the belief that sound prevention through regular checkups and cleanings is a tremendous positive factor in maintaining oral and gum health.
He is a sound proponent of forward thinking research and minimally invasive conservative dentistry, and is excited to be able to provide professional quality oral health care for his patients. He has also formed a local dental study club that holds regular meetings on relevant topics in dental care and lectures for general dentists and specialists.
Dr. Chien provides all professional services of general dentistry, including implant and cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, and beautiful porcelain veneers and crowns to create that beautiful and natural smile! He is an active member in the Seattle King County Dental Society, Washington State Dental Association, and American Dental Association.
