Doctor Kim likes to do a deep cleaning when cleaning teeth, so be prepared that it might be slightly more uncomfortable than what you are used to. In general, the experience was very good! Timely and efficient. Paperwork was quick and all staff was friendly and welcoming!

My visit was great. Only hitch was with one of the hygienists who was either new or not on her game that day. She x-rayed the wrong tooth and tripped on something which caused the x-ray thing you bite to getyanked out of my mouth. The dentist himself was excellent.

All the excellent reviews mentioned previously were accurate. I highly recommend Dr. Jin Kim for his excellent bedside manner, undivided attentiveness and thorough yet gentle work. He never pushes for any suggested procedures but explainsthe need for them respectfully while giving me much room to decide if I would go for certain procedures. A very pleasant visit! Will come back for sure and recommend to my friends and colleagues.

Dr. Kim was the most communicative dentist I've ever been to! He was always asking if I was okay and if I had any questions. He covered all the bases and let me know every available preventative treatment for any potentialissues he was seeing. I'll definitely be back (and not just because I need a filling).

This was my third visit to Cambridge Dental Associates and Dr. Kim - the staff is so friendly, the space is really welcoming, and they are extremely professional. I've never had to wait when I show up at my appointment time.Dr. Kim explains things really well so that you have all of your questions answered, and the hygienists are extremely skilled and nice.

Dr. Kim is awesome. He is gentle and very kind. He treats you with respect and patience. He explains the procedure in very easy terms so you can understand everything he is saying. He also gives you alternatives to treatment anddoesn't rush you into anything so you can think about what treatment you want to pursue.

I normally dread going to the dentist, but this was by far the best experience i've had at a dentist's office and with a dentist. Dr Kim has the best bedside manner I've every come across for dentists, he was extremelyinformative and listened to my concerns. He was not judgmental (no, I don't floss everyday, but that doesn't make me a bad person) and made sure I was comfortable the entire time, constantly asking me if I was ok along the way. Highly recommend.

Possibly my best experience with a dentist. Dr. Kim was efficient, attentive, and professional. His bedside manner is very comfortable and genuine. This is the first time I've had the dentist perform the cleaning himself, and while he warnedthat it might hurt, he was gentle and thorough, and kept asking how I was doing. I hadn't been to the dentist in a few years, but Dr. Kim didn't make me feel guilty about it (I swear that happens sometimes) or the few cavities he found. When I was done they gave me a full breakdown and estimate of my out-of-pocket costs to get the cavities filled based on my insurance. I won't be anxious about going to the dentist anymore! Thanks Dr. Kim!

I've seen Dr. Kim three times now, once for a check-up and twice for fillings, and I remain consistently impressed. Cambridge Dental Associates is well-situated and easily accessible, and once you're inside, the team goes out of their way tomake you feel comfortable. The friendly receptionist has greeted me by name each time I've gone. My entire check-up and dental exam was done by Dr. Kim himself, which surprised me -- first time in a while it wasn't just the dental assistant attempting to do the cleaning with the dentist popping in for 2 minutes at the end. Dr. Kim was friendly, gentle, extremely thorough, and sensitive to the fact that I was super nervous about visiting the dentist; he took time to explain what he was going to do. We looked at my x-rays together and had a discussion about which teeth needed fillings now and which could wait, and I left feeling confident about the decision. Now, having had fillings done in somewhat tricky parts of my mouth on two separate occasions with Dr. Kim, all I have to say is: best experience I've had at a dentist's office, hands-down. I'll be staying, thanks.
