Verified Patient Reviews
I went to Dr. Kim for general cleaning. Upon arrival, the receptionist was not there for some time. There was a delay from my appointment time to when I met with him (roughly 45-50 minutes), but it appears to be an isolated incident. Dr. Kim has excellent bedside manners. He was very polite, engaged, and patient when I met with him. I get apprehensive during visits, but he very calmly talked to me (e.g.; about his background, recommendations for oral hygiene, findings from his assessment of my teeth) as he did the cleaning. Afterwords, he even stayed a few minutes longer to answer all of my questions. Would definitely recommend him. He is Ivy League educated, military background, and extensive experience.
The office is so clean . The dentist is amazing . He went through all my X-rays and explained what needs to be done . Definitely one of the best dentist I visited in Jersey City .
Great experience, excellent doctor and most important i like the staff assist me
No wait, answered all my questions without hesitation. Very down to business and not a lot of chit chat, which I like.
Dr. Kim and his staff were AWESOME and the place was great! I booked my appointment with him the same day I saw him and I filled out all of paperwork online. I walked into the office with 5 minutes to my appointment and was greeted by 2 lovely staff members! They already had my paperwork printed and ready, all they had to do was scan my id. I signed off my paperwork was correct and they took me right back. I was in the waiting room for all of 5 minutes! THAT NEVER HAPPENS. The assistant took my xrays - she was so nice and accommodating. She took time to explain each step and make sure I was comfortable. The doctor came in directly after - he was the one who actually cleaned my teeth and went over my x-rays. I haven't had an actual dentist clean my teeth in years. It's always an assistant. He did a wonderful job. He took time during the cleaning to explain things I could do better (like floss, use a different type of tooth brush, and make sure that the buildup never gets to a point when I could have gum issues). He went over the importance of each step of your teeth cleaning routine. It took about 45 minutes from door to door, including the rescheduling of my next appointment. They even checked my insurance for me in relation to a second procedure. I highly recommend this doctor!
He was very curt and abtad condescending. It was my first time seeing him. I only got a cleaning. My last dentist did a lot more in the cleaning. I felt like this dentist just brushed my teeth...
Everyone was lovely and professional!
Very good cleaning and service overall from Dr. Kim and his staff.
I was very pleased by the level of attention and care I received from Dr. Kim and his staff. Both the receptionist and the technician were very friendly and attentive, making sure I felt comfortable and answering any initial questions I had. Dr. Kim listened to my concerns and answered my questions. He conducted a thorough cleaning which was quick and painless. Overall, I would say this was the best dental experience I have had in a while, and I was impressed by the level of attentiveness, care, and efficiency provided. A bonus: the wait time was very minimal; I was in and out of the office in about 45 min.
Did a thorough cleaning and oral examination. Good bedside manners.
No gimmicks! Efficient and accurate. All staff members were also very welcoming! Definitely recommend him!
Doctor Kim and his staff were great. Very helpful and kind, I needed a root canal and he walked me through all the available options, helped me make an informed decision and performed the procedures perfectly. What more could you ask for?
Excellent first visit. I was attended to right away by the courteous front desk staff, and the x-rays and cleaning went smoothly and quickly. The dentist was great at explaining the x-rays to me and a treatment plan going forward, and the front desk staff also helped explain carefully how I can work with my insurance benefits to get the fillings I need in as cost-effective a manner as possible. Highly recommended!
Very nice doctor, VERY clean office. The dental assistant and the lady in the front desk were also very polite. Awesome prices too! Far from my home but I don't mind traveling to him.
The visit was great! Dr. Kim was very friendly and professional. He has the patient's best interest at heart. Highly recommended!
Doctor was very informative and resourceful in educating
Diagonsed me with a lot of cavities for some reason and kept on telling me different things that had to be done.
The front desk coordinator was super sweet and friendly welcoming me with a smile. She was also very helpful. She went out of her way to find out exactly what my insurance covered before I saw the doctor, which I really appreciated because I am very cautious to dental work due to the high prices. She explained everything to me and made me feel comfortable to continue with the visit. The Dr's X-ray tech was soooo kind, I loved her. She was extremely patient with me while doing the X-rays and took her time to make sure I was comfortable the entire time. Dr was really awesome too very good at his job. He explained everything with the X-ray images to me and when it came to my cleaning it didn't hurt at all. I really liked that he was personalble and engaging. Made me very relaxed. I didn't feel pressured into any further exams or procedures which I usually tend to feel at the dentists so that was nice. He was gentle and efficient I will be returning as a regular patient! Thank you guys :)
I feel like this office was trying to take all my hard earned money. It' more of a business, trying to find little faults here and there. He was an okay guy. He diagnosed me with several cavities and charged me an enormous fee to get them fixed. So no I won't be returning. I could get four fixed for the price of one cavity. Also, they didn't give me a copy of my X-ray, stating it was their property. Smh, never coming back here, but the dental assistant was nice. On a positive note, he cleaned my teeth well so no more calculus. The receptionist will try to persuade you to make a follow up to get them fixed.
Positive experience. Very happy with my visit. Thanks Dr. Kim!
I waited 20minutes for them to even open the door. I arrived before both the doctor and his rsceptionist. I was treated very poorly and would recommend staying away if you can.
Dr. Paul kim was very polite and patient with me. I would recommend him to anyone. I had two wisdom teeth pulled,he made sure i felt no pain. When i heal i will go back to him to finish anything else that needs to be done
Great guy, cleans my teeth really well
I am a new patient and had some concerns about issues I have. He rushed me through and didn't really listen to my concerns.
It was very welcoming cant wait for my next appointment.
Very good at communicating what needs to get done and what it may cost, no frills. More of a serious demeanor, he won't joke with you, just business. Some may like his personality, because he's real and serious, some may find it standoffish and cold, he is caring and sensitive and good, just not there to make you laugh or have a good time, just dental work. He's personable and kind, but serious.
He's a great dentist. Waited maybe 5 minutes max, and he was very nice.
staffs were friendly and helpful. Explained well
Well, It is amazing. Dentist Dr. Paul kim respect pt's opinon not only this time but also last time what I visited there he saveD my teeth w/o pulling my teeth suggesting by other dentists. He helped me using his knowledgeable judgement. Pecfect Man.
The doctor completed my cleaning and exam. The entire visit took about 30 minutes and I am used to about a 30-40 minute cleaning with a 10 minute exam. Within the 30 minutes he identified 1 cavity and then said another may be forming. Although I had no tooth pain. By the end of the visit he identified 2 definite cavities and offered to schedule to fix my bottom permanent retainer. When I went to meet with the assistant in the front she had me at 2 filling appointments and 2 additional appointments, one for consultation for the retainer and one to fix the retainer. Being that I have had no tooth pain and last year received a filling for a cavity, followed all directions by my dentist I declined the cavity and other appointments. I was not impressed.
I think his office and staff were very professional. Dr. Kim was very informative with regards to the process and my options going forward. I felt that he had my best interest at mind.
I'm an adult who is permanently medically disabled. I was advised that I was in need of several dental procedures, which unfortunately not covered by my dental insurance. I was disappointed when the dentist didn't really seem to care to offer suggestions or alternatives as to how I might be able to go about receiving treatment. I plan to look for alternatives and don't plan on returning to this office ever again. Thank you!!
Very kind and helpful. Attended me quickly and scheduled follow up right after.
Professional, courteous and calming. Able to provide information and treatment plan in relatable terms. Highly recommended!
The Doctor was satisfactory but the office kept calling me to schedule additional appointments for things that were not a priority. I felt like the office was like a sales organization trying to make a sale - which was disappointment and irritating to me. I asked them not to call me anymore and notified them i was not returning.
I was very impressed with the doctor and the facilities.
He was listed as being able to pull teeth but did not, but he did send us quickly to someone who did
Very comfortable, very professional
Saw Dr Kim as my new dentist today and him and his staff are great. A bit of a wait but nothing compared to other practices i've been to (I have a 15 minute rule, if not seen within that time of my appointment I leave). I would highly recommend him for his thorough work and calm bedside manner.
Makes you feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Kim is a true talent in dentistry. Teeth are super clean and looking forward to seeing him again!
I would recommend him to mcfruends
I have visited Dr. Paul Kim and with my insurance as well they were not able to verify the information and I have paid cash with an assurance that once they will get confirmation from Insurance they will send me my refund via cheque but its more than 5 months and i have not yet received the same.
Very affable, likeable and knowledgeable.
I had a very great experience with Dr. Kim! When making the initial appointment, the staff was willing to work around my schedule, even offering to stay open a little late to see me. The receptionist was very polite, friendly, and accomodating while I had to wait. I appreciated that the staff went out of their way to make sure I understood the scope of work that would be covered by insurance, so I knew exactly what to expect in terms of payment before I even had my visit. When I was finally seated and prepped for the doctor, he arrived within minutes. He was very friendly, professional, and well-spoken. I was not seated very long, and in that time he provided more thorough care than any of my previous dentists. I would highly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone!
Friendly Staff. Little to no wait. Quiet Office. Dr. Kim did a great cleaning! What I thought were permanent stains were ALL removed in 1 cleaning.
Dr. Kim and his staff are very professional and caring. The moment you walk in you feel at home. They are friendly, accomodating and efficient.
Dr. Kim and his staff were all super friendly and helpful, they even fit in my filling right after which was super convenient for me.
Very professional and thorough!
Very Professional and Informative
