What People Say About Dr. Sam Kim, DMD

I had an appointment with Dr Kim for a routine cleaning. After X-rays were taken, he said he wanted to do "deep cleaning" on my lower front teeth, which he used anesthetic to numb the area. He didn't explain that "deep cleaning" meant "periodontal scaling & root planing" which was more expensive than a routine cleaning. Not only was he not clear with what procedure he was doing, he charged me for "periodontal scaling & root planing" for my upper teeth as well, even though he didn't numb my upper teeth or do "deep cleaning" for my upper teeth. Needless to say, I am not returning to his office.

Imagine how excited I was to find a dental office with flexibility in their schedule (including nights and weekends), was in network with my insurance AND had great reviews! Unfortunately it was to good to be true. I went in to the office today for my first appointment. It was primarily to get a cleaning but also to take a look at my jaw which has had TMJ issues for years, and get a treatment plan for my jaw. I notated my issue several times on the initial paperwork and when the Dr asked if I h

I had to make a nerve racking decision to do total mouth rebuild this year. Dr Kim said it needed to be done or I would have more complications. Allowed me to get a 2nd opinion to help ease my mind. In the end I saw this as a pay me now or pay me later decision. I love the whole team in Dr. Kim's office. Feels like family when I go to my appointments. I have trust issues and "can tell you, you can! trust him!!!" .

Worst dental apt I've ever had. Saw me without having me finish the intake forms (info on medical condition, allergies, etc.), they did the worst tooth cleaning I've ever had (just a quick polish and rough cleaning), never flossed my teeth or look at any specific areas. Dr. Kim never introduced himself, just walked in and said "Any tooth pain?" and briefly inspected my mouth. Lastly he talked to me about his concern for my tooth in the waiting room! Whole apt took 25min and I'll never go back!
