Dr. Kim’s passion for dentistry has been life long. As the daughter of a dental lab technician, Dr. Kim knew from early on that she wanted to pursue a career in the dental field. She earned her DDS from UCLA in 1996. Upon graduation, she completed her General Practice Residency at the VA Sepulveda, which allowed her an opportunity to further advance her skills as a dentist.
Shortly thereafter, Dr. Kim and a partner opened a general dentistry practice in Pasadena, California. In only two years, the practice grew to include three offices. She remained in Pasadena until 2004, when she and her family relocated to Seattle, where Dr. Kim took over a practice in the Wallingford neighborhood. Dr. Kim and her team strive to make every patient visiting her office feel comfortable and satisfied with his or her care and treatment. She believes in offering strong preventative care to ensure healthy teeth for years to come and is dedicated to offering comprehensive and efficient dental care, with an emphasis on minimizing patient pain and anxiety.
Married and the mother of three children - Dr. Kim enjoys playing piano, golfing, and spending time with her family.
