I have had numerous appointments with Dr. Kim (and have always had an excellent experience) but recently began seeing Dr. Peaks who is part of the Pender Dental team. Dr. Peaks’ focus and attention to detail is outstanding (I think deepdown she might be a perfectionist). The office is very professionally run by Annie! They’re a great team! Jim H.

My wife and children have gone to Dr. Kim for dental work. I've never have until yesterday. I've had a few bad/painful experiences when I was in my twenties at dentists. I had the number 5 tooth that was decayed andhad an abscess. The abscess had gotten to the point that on my gum around the tooth it looked like infected acne pimples. The extraction was far better that what I experienced years ago in terms of pain during the process!!! Dr. Kim numbed the entire area around the tooth which included the top of the mouth where the abscess was protruding!!!

Given the fact zocdoc provided the wrong address, my appointment was at South Riding (not Fairfax), the staff and doctor still managed to take both mine and my sons appointment (45 min later). We had a later afternoon appt scheduled anddue to the delay, they had to work late. Aside from the initial issue (not the office’s fault) i was very satisfied with the work. I would definitely recommend this place

From the front office to Dr. Peaks - I am so thankful for this office visit. I had a chipped front tooth from a freak accident the night before and called first thing in the morning. They let me come inright away to examine it and even were able to fix it immediately! My husband and I both come here and extremely thankful that we found this office! Dr Kim is amazing also as I have seen her for some of my cleanings. Highly recommend this office!

After my recent teeth cleaning I had some physical discomfort with some tissue after the fact that I didn't understand. I returned for a follow up and learned what may have caused it. They held themselves accountable and responsible for whathappened. And convinced me that there goal was to improve the quality of their service, relying on sincere feedback from their clients. Not all things go as planned, mistakes happen. So it's how problems are addressed when they occur that matter and using them as a learning experience for avoiding/minimizing them in the future. I still have a lot of confidence in them and will return.

The staff and Dr Kim are always a delight. They are pleasant and kind. I didn't mind waiting a few minutes for my appointment. They were taking care of a young patient who needed extra time. They CARE about their patientsand it shows. I will continue to come here for all of my dental needs.

I recently switched to Pender Dental Care and found my experience with Dr. Kim and the rest of the staff to be a great experience. I had an emergency situation and they were able to see me almost immediately. I sometimeshave anxiety with dentistry, but I have none about returning to Pender Dental Care. If you are looking for a new Dentist for any reason I suggest you look no further. Thanks again to Dr. Kim and her staff.

From a great first experience to the rock bottom. The front desk as shady to bill me for things that were covered 100% from my dental insurance and it took me to call and do her job right. After waiting anhour to then only have the doctor talk about trust and no preform the services I scheduled previously. My advice to all, check your coverages and make sure they bill you correctly!! I won’t be comedy by back here. The extraction that was done on my first visit, I still have my reservations. Shady business!

It has been a very long time since I went to the dentist. My other place was very negative. Dr. Kim was fantastic! She made me very comfortable and extinguished any bad thoughts I had. It was a little bit ofa wait but I didnt really mind. The lady who cleaned my teeth was really nice. And it was so easy and I felt amazing after. I left excited like a kid going to the dentist for the first time again. I am really happy I found her and I cannot wait to go back in 6 months!

Dr. Kim is very knowledgeable and kind. She reviewed my X-rays with me and explained what I was looking at. Her assistant was also very warm and did a very thorough polishing of my teeth. The office staff was able toget me a convenient appointment quickly which was very helpful since I am moving out of the country for a year. I am so impressed with Dr. Kim and her staff that I will try to plan my next dental appointment to coincide with visiting my family in NoVA.

The doctor was excellent, she treated me very well and did a awesome job on my teeth. To the contrary the receptions was very rude, and haggle me about my remaining balance when I ask for a bill. That was veryunprofessional and disrespectful and in someways bittersweet since the dentist was one of the best.

It was good the only thing I would change is that she gave directions to my 16 year old and treated him like an adult but did not tell me and my husband who where there what were her recommendations forhim that she gave him. So we left not knowing how to follow up on him. When asked her she said "Oh I told him already".
