Get To Know Your Dentist in Mission Valley

Hailing from Seoul, South Korea, Dr. John Kim, DMD comes from a family of dentists – his father, grandfather, uncles, cousins and even his brother-in-law are all in the family business.

After high school, Dr. Kim decided to come to the United States for a more advanced dental education, and entered a private practice in Boston once his training was complete. In 2004, he had an opportunity to open his own clinic back in Seoul. Over the next seven years, he opened two more clinics – one in Gangnam and one in Beijing.

Looking for a more relaxed lifestyle, and better weather, Dr. Kim decided to move to San Diego. He’d fallen in love with it from previous visits, and knew it was the right place for his next adventure.

Continuous Improvement

Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine: Dr. Kim attended Boston University after high school, where he received his dental degree.

Harvard School of Dental Medicine: Following his graduation, he pursued an Advanced Education in General Dentistry program with specialty training in Prosthodontics. This involves restoring functionality and aesthetics with the use of crowns, bridges, dentures and dental implants.

New York Dental School: Here, Dr. Kim sought additional training and completed a Dental Implant Surgical Training Program before he entered a private practice in Boston.

Outside of The Office

Dr. Kim, a new San Diego resident, lives in the Civita community of Mission Valley where he enjoys spending time with his wife, Duna, and their puppy, Berry.

He’s excited to join the team at New Image Dental, and looks forward to meeting his new patients! Call us at 619-280-9100 and book an appointment with Dr. Kim today!
