He was an amazing Dentist. I had to have a root canal and he fit me in right away. I have really sensitive teeth, and long roots, and he did a fantastic job. Once the initial pain was gone I have had zero pain in my tooth, and he followed up with me to make sure I was doing well. I really recommend him, he is clearly very skilled.​

I have terrible dental anxiety, and rarely do I give a dentist a good review.  But Dr. Kim is so patient and good at what he does that I felt compelled to write this. I've been 3 times now, all good experiences.  He did my cleaning himself, which was a nice touch. He got to know me before we started and was patient any time I needed a break. He explains everything he is doing before he does it - no surprises.  In my next visits to get fillings, Dr. Kim was professional and understanding of my fear concerning the procedure. The shots ended up being relatively painless - not so with other dentists I've visited. He let me take a break in between numbing and filling so I could get some air. I was also able to split up the appointments so that I didn't get too overwhelmed.

Possibly my best experience with a dentist.  Dr. Kim was efficient, attentive, and professional.  His bedside manner is very comfortable and genuine.  This is the first time I've had the dentist perform the cleaning himself, and while he warned that it might hurt, he was gentle and thorough, and kept asking how I was doing.  I hadn't been to the dentist in a few years, but Dr. Kim didn't make me feel guilty about it (I swear that happens sometimes) or the few cavities he found.  I won't be anxious about going to the dentist anymore! Thanks Dr. Kim!
