San Diego, CA |
Very satisfied with the implant which was done recently. The office is equipped with the best technology for digital diagnosis and accurate treatment I ever seen. High quality, quick treatment and reasonable cost!

This is the best dentist I have been to. First off he's honest about the work you need to get done. He only does what really needs to be done. My experience with other dentists seemed as if they were trying to get more money than work that was necessary. He also makes you feel like a friend who cares. It makes you more comfortable/at ease... I really didn't know what to expect, but now i know why he gets a 5star review. That's because he deserves it.. His staff is also really helpful and polite

Dr. Eugene Kim at San Diego Dental was the first dentist I have ever trusted. It's amazing how he has little tricks that he has developed to minimize or even eliminate pain. I barely feel a thing when he injects a needle in my mouth - I don't know how he does it but it works! I have been a loyal customer since 2010 and he has been consistently excellent the entire time. His assistants have also all been top notch - they handle the x-rays, cleaning and scaling professionally and they are also
