Generations of Excellence

Dr. Joseph Chenin, a retired dentist, came to Las Vegas in 1951 where he started his practice at Nellis Air Force Base. While at Nellis AFB, he worked on many important top secret projects including some related to the effects on pilots’ teeth caused by high speed jet flight. He was the #17th licensed dentist in Las Vegas (the 29th dentist in the State of Nevada), and throughout the decades, he treated many of our favorite stars! In 1978, Chenin Orthodontics was founded by Dr. Stephen Chenin and Dr. David Chenin later joined the practice in 2000. Dr. Stephen Chenin has another son, Dr. Douglas Chenin, who is a practicing dentist in Northern California. The Chenin Family has proudly provided dental care to the Las Vegas valley for over 55 years.

Our doctors were recently featured in the Nevada Dental Association Journal.
