Verified Patient Reviews
He is an excellent dentist, would recommend him to anyone.
welcoming, simple, relaxing, clean, friendly
Had a very pleasant experience! Whole team was very friendly and attentive, Dr. Kim was very gentle. All around great!
Dr. Kim and his staff were very professional from the moment I walked into his office to the moment I walked out. My cleaning was very thorough and at the end he took some time to listen and address all my concerns. As a new patient I also received an awesome electronic Sonicare toothbrush. I would highly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone that is looking for new dentist .
Dr. Kim is the BEST!
I apologize to Dr. Kim for my previous review. (This revised review supersedes my review of February, 2016.) I highly recommend the quality of his dentistry, and even higher his professional integrity. As I had hoped--and even suspected--the problem with my two implants was NOT with their posts, but rather merely with the tightness of their crowns. He repaired them easily and at no expense. Such gentlemanly professionalism is rare these days, and I greatly appreciate it. I highly recommend him.
Professional and courteous. Didn't try to push any unnecessary work on me.
Dr Kim was nice, sincere and gentle! I generally fear going to the dentist but he was wonderful!

Dr Shawn Kim was great with my child amazing bedside manner which is so important. Made my daughter feel comfortable and safe. Took his time and explained everything. Always asked if she feels fine. So happy we chose him I highly recommend seeing Dr. Kim:)
Was busy day for them but had everything under control. I like the new technology they have. Nurse was very skilled too, felt being taken care of.
Always a stress free (I had had horrors le experiences with dentist in the past , nedless to say I am not a fan) visit with Dr. Shaw Kim, I truly commend his professionalism and work expertise!
I love this place, they are very professional, helpful and I'm very happy with how they do their job. I also bring my kids there too.I have recommended this place to a few people. Best dentists I've been to. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
He made me feel good and comfortable!!!
With Avia pricing, Shawn Kim is (comparatively) inexpensive for dental work. Unfortunately, perhaps you get what you pay for. I have a facial bruise and a persistent swelling at the base of my gums from an extraction. I have had two implants from Dr. Kim, and neither one was successful. I had hoped for better outcomes.
Dr. Shawn took great care of me thank you
Along with their professional expertise, I was so thankful they treated my elderly mother like a family member. She was so encouraged by the results of her visit.
Everyone was very nice. I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen and Dr. Kim Shawn saw me immediately after my x-rays were finished. Dr. Shawn Kim was great and would highly recommend him!
