A Comprehensive Care Approach
You don’t smile or bite into your food one tooth at a time. Rather, you use your entire mouth and jaw to talk, laugh, and eat. Dentistry should be a reflection of how your mouth functions as a whole, and Dr. Kim and her team emphasize a comprehensive care approach to oral health. Rather than viewing each single tooth independently of the others, we take into account the health of your entire mouth. This approach creates the best long-term results and ensures that each individual treatment works in harmony with the rest of your bite and smile.
Dr. Kim loves to help her patients achieve their smile goals! Simple cosmetic procedures can often make huge improvements in enhancing the natural beauty of your smile. Dr. Kim works closely with you to understand how you envision your smile, and she can create mock-ups and reversible “trial smiles” to ensure that you get a final result that you love.
If you are in need of a major dental reconstruction, rest assured that you are in highly capable hands. As a graduate and now a mentor at the world-renowned Kois Center, Dr. Kim trains other dentists in advanced areas of restorative dentistry. She takes on complex cases and works with you to develop a treatment plan personalized to your needs.
Prevent & Restore
Our team takes pride in helping our patients maintain the health of their gums through our Perio Program. This program is both preventative and restorative in nature, aimed at recognizing early signs of gum disease and treating it early with the goal of avoiding more invasive, complicated, and/or costly procedures down the road.

Why Go to a Kois Trained Dentist?
Dentists from around the world travel to Seattle to take courses at the Kois Center. This prestigious post-graduate level teaching center delivers the latest advances in esthetics, implants, and restorative dentistry through cutting edge continuing dental education.
After completing her coursework, Dr. Kim graduated and went on to become a Kois mentor for other dentists in the program. As a mentor, Dr. Kim’s own dentistry continues to benefit by keeping her at the forefront of the most up-to-date scientific research. Also, the valuable hands-on collaboration with other Kois mentors and dentists is invaluable.
Health & Wellness
Dental health and overall health are intrinsically connected. Did you know that dental/oral disease has been proven to be linked to over 50 systemic diseases? We want to make sure that your oral health condition is not negatively affecting your overall health. In fact, we believe that a healthy mouth can improve your overall health. Our philosophy of care takes into account your full health profile in order to better evaluate your personal risk factors and focus on preventing major dental issues from developing in the first place.
