My appointment was at 10am. Got there around 9:50am. Filled out forms while another patient was seen before me (double booked?). The Technician did my x-rays and then the hygienist walked in to ask if I wanted to get a teethcleaning done. I declined since I came to fix a cracked tooth. I sat waiting till 11:05am when the dentist came in and insisted that I get a teeth cleaning. I said sure but the hygienist was busy so I said I would reschedule. Then the dentist disappeared (probably went to deal with another patient). He eventually came back and did some minor repairs on my tooth, answered some of my questions and then I left around 11:45am. Overall, okay visit. - Older woman at front desk was very friendly - X-ray technician (younger woman) was passive aggressive - Dental Hygienist (older woman) was friendly - Doctor Kim was being a broken record about changing my insurance and getting routine teeth cleaning even though he acknowledged that my teeth didn't have any issues.

I absolutely hate going to the dentist. I wish I had met Dr. KIM and his staff years ago. My dental hygienist performed an effortless cleaning of my teethe. She was gentle, professional and kind. Dr. Kim has a wonderful bedsidemanner. I recommend anyone who has fear of the dentist to visit this office. It will disable your fear.

Dr. Hyeong is an amazing professional. Excellent bedside manner and has so much experience. He made an anxiety ridden procedure seem like a walk in the park. He is very confident in his practice and skills and Also takes the timeto keep you well informed . He teaches at Columbia for part of the week which makes him such an excellent communicator. I had to get a route canal and a crown placed. He completed the route canal within minutes- 20-30 max. I feel great and would highly recommend. Excellent bedside manner - like no other I have seen. Also- front desk staff is very informative, welcoming and professional. I will definitely return.

Dr Hyeong Kim, DDS, PhD is a great dentist. His staff is fabulous. They are extremely nice and knowledgeably and so friendly and they made me feel very comfortable . The office is conveniently located and easy to get to. IHad X-rays and my teeth cleaned. The hygienist was very through and gentle. After that Dr. Kim went through my X-rays with me and explained the work that needs to be done. It’s was nice because my X-rays were on a screen in front of me and I could see exactly what was going on. I made my next appointment and I know I’m in good hands. My teeth will thank me for years to come. I highly recommend Dr. Kim and his staff.

Visit with the provider himself and the assistant was good. Wait time was decent. I had xrays as my first time. Dr Kim said i needed three fillings and went right to work. However when we were all done the receptionistsaid okay, your insurance only covers 70% of fillings, here's the cost for the other 30%. This is definitely something that should have at least been mentioned to me before they went right ahead with the fillings. Cost aside, the work was good.

I've been going here for a long time by now, and every visit has left me satisfied. Waiting times are minimal if any for me, even on weekends. The waiting room is clean, the rooms are clean and not cramped, andI've had a few people here work on my teeth which all seemed to do a good job with minimal discomfort. The individual at the front desk is also helpful and very pleasent to chat with if you do end up having to wait. Also they have good dental goodie bags but I forget to take mine nearly every time sadly.

I was delighted that I was treated by a well versed Dentist who takes pride in his work, and gives a detailed rundown what is the underlying root cause, the treatment he recommends as well as the different options which canbe applied. After the treatment he gave an additional rundown what was achieved.

In my opinion, one of the most annoying procedures in a dental office can be getting a root canal done... Not only can it be painful, tedious as it will require multiple visits, but it can also be very uncomfortableand anxiety producing... Fortunately I was able to get my procedure with Dr. Hyeong Kim who is not only highly trained from one of the most prestigious Ivy League universities in the country but also has the patience, the technology (cutting edge equipment) the chairside maner, a very light hand and unmatched technique that made the procedure bearable and practically painless. I couldn't be happier with the results... I will definitely be returning and recommending him to my closest friends and family. I am totally satisfied with the service and experience at his clinic. Highly recommended. 5 Stars.

It was very satisfying, and pleasant visit. Dr. Kim and assistant were very pleasant. Dr. Kim took time and explained what I need to understand. It was excellent comprehensive consultation. When after my favorite dentist retired, I was searchingfor long time to find a good dentist that I can trust and had a bad experiences until I've finally found Dr. Kim. I highly recommend Dr. Kim because he listens to patient and explains thoroughly with well bedside manner. He cares patients to have healthy teeth for long term. Also, I've mentioned to Dr. Kim and assistant that I had a bad experience took x-rays from previous dentist that it was painful taking a x-rays. But thankfully because Dr. Kim has most updated state of art technology which was very satisfying experience. Dr. Kim is well knowledge and really care for patients to have healthy teeth. Not only he graduated from one of the top school in the US, he also teaches at one of the top school in the US. So I highly recommend for anyone to visit Dr. Kim for pleasant and reliable, experienced, satisfying dental issues !

10 stars should almost be suffice to describe the level of excellence and proficientcy as a Doctor, a skilled dental specialist. Along with a amazing and gentle staff, this has been the only place that has ended the dreaded feeling ofgoing to the dentist. I needed intense and serious work done, I got 4 root canals, 4 crowns, 2 cavity fillings, and I absolutely have been treated well, received service that is only to be described as Above and Beyond. To whom ever looking for a nothing less than perfect dentist, I couldn't imagine a better one than Dr. Kim, I didn't know dentist like him and staff like him exsisted, I found them just randomly after much over due work needed. I can only say thank God for Dr. Kim, As a professional designer myself, I have always had extraordinarily high expectation, this dental specialist showed me everything that would have surpassed any expectations I would have had. For me I dreaded and hated dental visits, Always wished to never have to go back. Dr.Kim total changed my view of the dentistry world, not with sales or rubbished, but with his professional ethics, proficiency, and a overall good person that you can Trust. I am beyond happy I have a dentist for life, I have recommended every person I know including my family. If your someone who cares about your health your body, and takes care of it well, be smart and find doctor Kim. I believe I have had more than enough work done to give a 100% in depth Review for anyone. Anyone reading this, do yourself this favor and break away from all the dentist you hate, i am happy I am able to brag about my dentist, because everyone I know hates theirs and that is the truth. To all readers and ZOCDOC, this is 100% on and for the record. Ken L. New York City

Dr. Kim is a great dentist. One of the best since all the dentists I had. He is also a professor at a prestigious college so he does a lot of teaching prior to performing any dental work. He is welleducated and it shows. He takes his time to teach, answer questions thoroughly, have a caring professional attitude as a healthcare provider, and tries his very best to make you feel comfortable. I trust him with my dental work and it is really nice to find someone that really cares about his patients and his work.

Dr. Kim and his staff are amazing. He gave me options, provided me with all the information I need to make an intelligent decision and was respectful of my choice of dental work. They worked with my insurance plan (which isnot great to begin with). Most dental offices won't even try to submit any paperwork if it seems too cumbersome for them. Most importantly, the results of Dr. Kim's work is flawless. I am so grateful for him and his staff for giving my smile back. I will recommend this office to anyone looking for an amazing dentist and just a pleasant staff all around.
