Personal Attention Professional Care

Paul Kim, DDS

"Learn, earn, return; one of my mentors mentioned this as one of his favorite mottos. The phrase resonated with me, for I truly believe in the philosophy. The advancement of dentistry in terms of technologies and materials is increasing at a rapid pace. I am very blessed to be in the profession where life-long learning is possible and highly encouraged to be able to provide excellent care to the community."

My Mission

"Honesty is one of the most important aspects to have a strong relationship between people. I want to be a dentist who patients can rely on to be well-informed about their oral health and to be able to make the right decision for themselves."

Life & Hobbies

Dr. Kim loves playing games: video games, virtual reality, board games, portable games, escape rooms, etc. There are so many different types of games, but they are all exciting and engaging. They stimulate his brain to analyze and interpret the situation "outside of the box" to proceed and reach a higher level. One of Dr. Kim's favorite activities is an escape room. Escape rooms are excellent ways to unify a group to work together and use each person's strength to maximize their potential to solve puzzles and escape within a time limit.
