A Higher Standard of Care

Get to Know Dr. Steve Kim

Dr. Kim always knew he wanted to work in the healthcare industry. With encouragement from his mother, he decided to pursue dentistry because it combined his engineering skills with his aesthetic touch. After practicing for several years in Seoul, South Korea, he decided to specialize in Prosthodontics to truly master his dental capabilities.

A graduate of the elite Seoul National University with his DDS, Dr. Kim expanded his knowledge further at Boston University's prestigious Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, bringing along his wife, a former anchorwoman, and their two daughters.

Driven by a commitment to providing the highest level of excellence for his patients, Dr. Steve Kim continues to excel in his dental career, combining his international experience and education to deliver exceptional dental services and foster lasting relationships with his patients. He listens to each of their concerns with a calm and patient bedside manner, finessed over years of being a doting father and husband. The office's consistent 5-star reviews over nearly twenty years speak for themselves.

Dr. Kim's longtime passion and talent also lies in music. His skilled dexterity began when he was a bass guitarist of a rock band in his college days and continues playing to this day. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters.  In 2024, the office became a generational family business when his younger daughter, Dr. Yoona Kim, joined the practice after graduating from the distinguished UCLA School of Dentistry.
