Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Kim graduated from University of Maryland at College Park with BS degree in Biology and received his D.M.D. from Boston University. Dr. Kim believes in a treatment system where the patient is an active participant in the treatment through patient education and thorough explanation. BDG utilizes sophisticated Caesy dental education system to help patients understand the dental issues and the logic behind each treatment. The result of this patient-centric approach is significantly reduced problems during the post-op recovery as the patients understand their role in the overall dental care. Dr. Kim believes even if the dental physician is sitting in the driver's seat and performs the procedures, the patients need to know why and where they are going.

Great Doc! Highly recommend!
Ive gone to other pracitces in the area , none as to the point and caring as Dr. Kim . He was kind and explained everything along the way before doing and why it needed to be done . I to pracitce where all they did was look at my teeth, quote and tell me this was going to be expensive . Now i have utter peace of mind, and tranqulity . If you have a phobea to go to dentist i understand, but after today i fully trust Dr.kim for all my dental needs. I was scared for years to see a practice and now i feel i finally found my dentist . Hes definitely worth going to and being in his care .
Great Appointment! Thank You everyone!
Dr. Kim is amazing, he's very patient and he explains you everything step-by-step. He's perfect for young millenials, too, because he's willing to explain insurance-related questions and stuff.He even shows you the xrays and pictures through the flat screen in front of the chair! I really appreciate the transparency by explaining to me what's happening and steps I can do to fix it. He doesn't push unnecessary operations because he does give you options and pros and cons of each one. I also like that he's nice but he doesn't sugarcoat anything. He will tell you if you're doing something wrong with your routine and tell you how to fix it! Will definitely visit again. He makes you comfortable!
My visit with Mr.Kim was so much better than my primary dentist. He's very attentive and friendly which made me feel comfortable and at ease at my appointment. Also, he gave me some knowledge about my teeth and reccomended me on what actions I should take next with him. I'm absolutely grateful that I've chosen the right dentist for me. 10/10 !!!!
Great experiences - one of the few dentists who actually took the time to talk to me about the health of my teeth. All of my questions were answered!
Dr. Kim and his staff were awesome as always!
funny and cool
This is my second visit with Dr. Kim. I have extensive dental work to be done over time and have selected Dr. Kim to do it all. He explains in thorough detail, including showing you too on the picture monitor, exactly what he will be doing. He is also very compassionate with those who have a phobia going to the dentist. Which is me!
He was a pleasure to talk to, was clear and concise in his descriptions. He even made it clear that I (like so many other adults) need to floss more with coming across as complaining or nagging me.
Dr. Kim was very kind and very helpful to me on my emergency visit to him today regarding my tooth pain. Dealing with bad pain will certainly stop you in your tracks, that's for sure. I do plan on going back to Dr. Kim for all my future dental needs.
I trust Dr. Kim. He is thorough and shows excellent judgment. Love that he offers Saturday appointments, too.
The visit to Dr. Kim's office was excellent. The staff was friendly, and Dr. Kim was very thoughtful and attentive. They were focused on making it a positive and upbeat experience, in spite of the pain involved in going to the dentist. Best of all, they were not focused on giving unnecessary tests or services just to overcharge my insurance. Overall, I would recommend Dr. Kim to friends and family. Great service, friendly staff, great experience!
I've been a patient of Dr. Kim for about 2 years. He and his staff are outstanding.
My first experience with him was awesome. I have been having toothaches with unknown reason for a year. Fortunately, Dr. Kim found out the reason for my pain with x-ray images. During and after the treatment, he made sure my questions were thoroughly answered and explained. I will definitely go back and get more treatments in the future.
Dr. Kim and his team are quick, efficient and friendly. They offer weekend hours which is wonderful and they also provide future recommendations (orthodontics, night guards, etc) without pressuring you so you can decide when to get things done at your convenience. My husband and I both love going to Boston Dental for our dental needs.
I am very apprehensive when going to the dentist. Dr. Kim and his staff are so comforting and professional I won't go anywhere else!!!
Very good, kind and so I recommend this to other patients. Thanks
I was brought back within 3 minutes of checking in. Dr. Kim and his assistant were very personable and tried hard to make me feel comfortable. This is the first dentist I've been to where the dentist did all the work, including the cleaning. He explained everything that he was doing and made sure I understood everything. He showed me my x-rays and pictures (like actual photographs of my teeth, pretty cool!) and pointed out a few issues and explained everything. He even showed me a video explaining one potential problem. The appointment was completely stress free and I have already recommended this dentist to a friend. I get very anxious when I go to the doctor in general, but I was quickly calmed down by Dr. Kim and his assistant's demeanor. The only thing is that he had an accent which was a bit difficult to understand at first, but just pay attention when he's talking. Also, I got email and text message confirmations from the doctor's office for my appointment, which I liked.
Dr. Kim and his office were great! I was able to send all of the forms and paperwork prior to the visit eliminating the need to take time for that and it was typed and printed and ready for signature upon arrival. The front staff was helpful and immediately called my children back for x-rays. Dr. Kim did the cleaning, viewed the x-rays and discussed everything he saw with me in clear terms. He was sure to ask me if I had any questions and was great about discussing the importance for brushing and flossing to my children. No task was beneath him; he even scheduled our next appointments! He had a great approach, was quick, gentle and seems knowledgeable. He understands my insurance and is willing to work with me; we even discussed suggestions for future insurance decisions should I need to make a change. My children wee relaxed, happy, and he even fixed my daughter's slightly chipped tooth! I'm very pleased and glad that we found a great dentist in Rockville.
I saw Dr. Kim for the first time this weekend. (Yep--has Saturday hours, how excellent it that?!) I've been lucky and have had fantastic dentists most of my life and have had my share of fillings. Recently I saw a dentist who was super nice, but did many things that made me question her methods. Dr. Kim spent significant time with me explaining the causes of my issues and what would need to be done to repair them. He's thorough, kind, and importantly--gentle. I highly recommend him. (Especially if you've recently had a not-so-great experience. He can handle it.)
Very personable. Tech savvy.
When my mom told me we had a dental appointment I was SCARED and nervous!!! I had never met Dr. Kim, I didn't know what to expect. As soon as we walked into his office, my nerves were calmed! The nice ladies at the front office were friendly and calming. When I met Dr. Kim, he was great and answered all my questions! if you are in elementary school and want a cool dentist, he's the one!
Dr. Kim and his staff are always caring and calming! He takes time to explain each procedure/process. Loves your teeth and will do what's best for you ALWAYS!!!!
The best dentist in this area
The first thing I noticed was that Dr. Kim and his staff are really friendly and knowledgeable. Their equipment and technology are out of this world, and I have 100% confidence in Dr. Kim's decisions. My first procedure in this office was root canal, and I did not feel a thing. I had many fillings done before, but this was the smoothest and least painful dentist visit of all times. And it was root canal! I came in nervous and scared due to previous trauma that I experienced with other dentists, and by the end of the procedure I found myself relaxed and observing the procedure myself. I am looking forward to visiting this practice again and I highly recommend it.
Dr. Kim has a very calming and professional demeanor. I was pleasantly surprised that he took the time to truly educate me on the causes of some of the issues I was having and gave me various treatment options/approaches.
Very good Dentist! Doesn't try to up sell you every little doohickey in the book.
he is so funny and nice!
He is friendly.Also reasonable price,clean office. This dental office is far from my house (about 40 min by car)but I'like to come again.
Dr. Kim was excellent. I don't like attending the dentist, however, he made me feel comfortable despite the myriad of problems my teeth have.
