Dr. Kim is an amazing prosthodontist. She is smart, caring, and really takes her time to think through a complicated problem. For years I had been biting on my two front teeth, which had worn down dangerously thin. After exploring different options, she put crowns on them and adjusted my bite so that I no longer hit them. The crowns turned out beautifully and I am thrilled to finally be biting on my molars after years of no contact. I HIGHLY recommend her. Thank you, Dr. Kim!!

Dr Kim is an extremely competent prothodontist. She is caring , patient and explains everything very well. Her work is meticulous and extremely well done. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone with problems needing quite difficult treatment. I broke a front tooth and she did a wonderful job making me a bridge and improving my underbite , giving me a lovely new smile.

I've been a patient of Dr. Kim's for 10 years after being referred to her by a specialist. I trust her implicitly and am confident in her care. She is professional, kind, knowledgeable, and completely patient-centered. The entire staff does everything possible to assist patients. I do not make recommendations lightly but have no reservations in recommending Dr. Kim.
