I love this dental office, I'm grateful I found them. All their imaging gear and x-ray stuff is super high-tech. Dr. Kim is very warm, very funny and more importantly very smart. He actually stuck a camera in my mouth and showed me on the screen what the problem areas were (i have some old fillings that are structurally unsound) and what he wanted to do and talked through my options. I had not been to the dentist in a couple of years and I needed a deep cleaning. The dental hygienist, Lydia is great. She's very nice and thorough and very skilled. These people are the A team. No need to fear this dentist. The facility itself is clean, warm, non threatening and has its own parking.
I have been to Dr. Kim's office for a few months now with two cleaning with Lydia, who has been fabulous. I just had some filling/bonding done and I am really happy with them.
Lydia had very gentle touch but was able to clean out my coffee/tea/red wine stained teeth. I dozed off during my last visit while she was cleaning, which has never happened before as I normally have PTSD episodes while in a dentist's chair.
Dr. Kim repaired my bonding/filling today. They looked great and I can immediately sense the positive difference regarding the sensitivity around my gum line. Furthermore, I was in and out a little over half a hour with no discomfort.
Dr. Kim's office is about a 5- to10- minute drive from my office. Not only they have their own parking lot (which is a rare thing in Santa Monica - I usually Uber to my doctors appointments because the parking at SaMo usually costs more than round trip Uber rides), everyone on the staff is fantastic. The receptionist is super patient working with me to find a good time for me to come in for the first time. After my first procedure here today, I feel I could trust the doctor to help me keep my teeth healthy. I am so glad to have found this place. Recommended!
Dr. Kim and his staff have been great. My husband and I have been going here for the past couple of years. We come to see Lydia for our routine cleaning and she is the best!
Stephanie at the front desk is great. Anytime I need to schedule or make a payment, she is very helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Kim, he is gentle and skilled. He doesn't try and sell you into things you don't need. He really cares for his patients.
After moving to LA a little over 3 years ago, I needed a new local dentist. One of my best friends recommended Dr. Kim and I am so happy that I listened to her. Dr. Kim is professional, nice, and very knowledgeable. All of the staff are very friendly, and especially the dental hygienist Lydia who is super sweet and personable. If you are looking for a great dentist and dental team on the westside, pick Dr. Kim!
I've been coming to Dr. Kim since I can't even remember! Each visit is full of chit chatting with the dental hygienist Lydia who does an amazing job at making my teeth feel squeaky clean. Dr. Kim is patient and makes you feel at ease. Recently I thought I cracked one of my molars while eating cherries during non business hours and called Dr. Kim on his personal cell for a consultation. He calmed me down with his gentle humor and informed me of how to take care of it through the weekend. Thankfully it wasn't cracked but even if it had been I know I'd be in good hands.
Dr. Kim and his staff are phenomenal. They are thorough but compassionate with their care. Their facilities and equipment are modern and clean. Their hygienists are great at their jobs, but treat me like a person, not just a set of teeth. I see them but twice a year, but they treat me like a good friend, always asking after my wife and my family by name. They are a close knit family of professionals who obviously like what they do, and that comes through in the level of care they provide. And, last but not least, they have a parking lot! No more hunting for meter spots or trying to decipher Santa Monica street parking signage. If you're looking for a new dentist, I would recommend Dr. Kim and Co without hesitation.
It seems counter intuitive but, I absolutely LOVE going to the dentist. Dr. Kim and his team are so friendly and professional. His dental hygienist Lydia is the BEST! My teeth are clean and it is an enjoyable experience. I went in just last week and mentioned some cold sensitivity during my regular cleaning and Dr. Kim was able to fit me in that same morning and my teeth feel 100% better. If you're looking for a dentist in LA, it is worth the drive to Santa Monica to see Dr. Kim!
I've been a patient of Dr. Kim's for the past two years and have been extremely happy with both his treatment and also his hygienist, Lydia. Dr. Kim (and his entire staff) is very welcoming and friendly which makes a difference to me, as I had a bit of a dentist-phobia previously. I'd highly recommend Dr. Kim if you are in need of dentist in the West LA area. One additional perk -- I've never had an issue with free, on-site parking and as someone who has other appointment in Santa Monica, that is a definite value add.
I found Dr Kim through an orthodontist I highly respect. Dr Kim was my fourth dentist in 6yrs as it was so difficult find someone who was actually talented and detailed oriented enough to do good work. Other dentists had fancy offices and tech but I had complications every time I had work done. Others scratched to find cavities and things "wrong" so they could make an extra dime. Dr Kim is down to earth, not pushy and conservative in his assessments. He did great cosmetic and filler work. He also had a fantastic cleaner who is thorough and gentle. I finally found a dentist on the Westside I like!
