He has extensive knowledge of all dental and oral surgery procedures.
Dr. Chien earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Southern California (USC). He knew he wanted to pursue dentistry, so he finished an accelerated dental program through USC. After practicing dentistry in the Los Angeles area, Dr. Chien did an oral surgery internship at the USC Medical Center before being accepted into the oral and maxillofacial residency program in Fresno.
Dr. Chien completed his residency at the Community Medical Center in Fresno, which is now called UCSF Fresno. This program gave him years of experience performing reconstructive surgery, extractions, and the full range of oral surgery procedures. After finishing his residency in 2009, Dr. Chien joined Fresno Oral Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implant Center.
After finishing his training, Dr. Chien completed the steps to become certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. To become certified, Dr. Chien had to pass a test to demonstrate his knowledge of the oral and maxillofacial specialty. This certification acknowledges Dr. Chien’s comprehensive understanding of the oral surgery specialty.
