Dr. Kim was born in Korea but grew up in the Philippines. She knew at a young age that becoming a dentist was her dream career. After earning her doctorate from Loma Linda School of Dentistry, Dr. Kim learned that she particularly enjoyed helping children develop healthy smiles. She takes the time to get to know each child personally, communicating with parents and children to create a lifetime of happy teeth. Dr. Kim also loves to attend mission trips, reaching out to underprivileged children in need of dental care. These mission trips have led her to Kenya, Zimbabwe, Guyana, and back to the Philippines.
