Welcome to the family!

We had such a great time at the Chen Dental Family Picnic! Thank you to everyone who showed their support. We love seeing our community come together to have fun, but also to rally behind a cause that affects families in our area and beyond. Our patients are family and the community we serve is an extension of that family. All donations from the family picnic benefited the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. Because of your generosity we surpassed our goal and raised $4,500!   We can't wait to start planning for next year. Post your pictures on Facebook with the hashtags

#chendental and #familypicnic.


Chen  Dental Family Picnic is an annual celebration featuring BBQ, live music, entertainment, prizes and more. This year we invited Sonny's BBQ and the  Cold Stone Creamery food truck and we thank them for their partnership. A big thank you also to DJ Jeremy, Grand Rental Station,  Baker Septic, Bella Villa 31, Gold's Gym, Willow's Massage Therapy,  and Tania. Every donation benefits the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation and as a thank you, individuals receive a ticket to enjoy all of the fun. You must have a ticket to enter.
