Dr. Andrew Kim
From my first day as a dentist, I realized how happy I was to serve others and develop a trusting relationship with each of my patients. I really appreciate each opportunity to relieve a patient's pain. I especially enjoy dental surgery and endodontics because they both dramatically help to reduce pain and suffering. I also appreciate the many opportunities I have been given to go on mission trips, where I can share my skill to bless and help others.
When I was a child, I frequently visited my dentist and experienced a lot of pain. I knew that one day, I wanted to be dentist and save others from their dental pain. I was also inspired by missionaries who visited us in Korea, who selflessly devoted themselves to serving and helping others.
My team and I are partners in every sense of the word. We have a wonderful and trusting relationship, and I really appreciate how this spills over into each of the interactions between my staff and each patient. We work together as a team to provide pain-free dentistry to our patients. Most dental patients will need a shot of some kind. Dental procedures do involve needles. We often hear our patients say, “This was my first pain-free dental experience.” I try to make my patients as comfortable as possible.
