Originally from South Korea, Dr. Kim moved to Pennsylvania with her family when she was 14. “I went to the dentist a lot when I was young, and had some pretty traumatic experiences,” she says. “But my general dentist in Pennsylvania was the first to show me that it could actually be a painless, comfortable experience. It totally changed my view about dentistry, and I wanted to be that person for other people like me.”

Her favorite part of the job? Getting to know her patients. “It’s such a personal experience,” she says, “seeing patients one on one, and caring for them over time. Before I moved to New York, I’d even gone to some of my patients’ weddings!”

Known for being both gentle and efficient, Dr. Kim herself has undergone just about every dental procedure you can imagine. “So I can definitely relate to patients who are anxious,” she says. “I’ve been through it all myself. But there’s nothing to be afraid of. When you come see me, I’ll treat you just like I would treat my own family.”

When you come see me, I’ll treat you just like I would treat my own family.
