About Dr. Sung J Kim

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.

I came in for evaluation and cleaning. Very gentle and considerate doctor. I felt very comfortable. I’m glad I finally chosea dentist, as I was putting it off because I hate the tooth pain.

Dr Kim was a very smart and funny guy. He explained the status of my teeth and showed me what he was talking about with a tiny closeup tooth camera. I felt like he really knew his stuff. I didn’t feel like he was pushing unnecessary treatments on me, as I have experienced with other dentists.

I've lived in Maryland for 3 years and still went to my dentist in New Jersey because I was so anxious about finding a new dentist. Dr. Kim was amazing - I have no idea why I waited so long! I was seen pretty much immediately. He has Saturday hours (SO CONVENIENT). The office is pretty updated with all kinds of new equipment my old dentist's office didn't have. Dr. Kim used this awesome camera to take super-macro up-close shots of my teeth and gumline. He pulled each photo up on a screen and pointed things out to me I never would've seen. He explained things, like how my gum dipping close to my tooth meant I needed to floss better. Seeing things that close and personal actually motivated me to take better care of my teeth. He even helped seal an abfraction (tiny notch near the gumline) I have because it was sensitive. He told me to bring my retainer next time so he could see if the fit was causing the issue and possible fix it. He was crazy attentive and personable.... even better than my old dentist. My check-up was covered by insurance, and there were no billing issues (which is rare, since most of my doctors manage to mess that up). I highly recommend him!

Came on on short notice after a crown came out. Dr. Kim and his staff were no-nonsense and got me in and out in roughly an hour, maybe even less. Offered me three different solutions, including cementing the crown back in place that day (which he did). Didn't insist on multiple X-Rays or anything else, just got the job done. Would HIGHLY recommend, and I usually can't stand dentists!

Dr. Kim and his team are fantastic and so friendly. He is very explicit about his plan and what’s necessary. He really stresses the importance of daily dental hygiene but without being condescending. I had to have a crown redone and the entire process was great and my bite was flawless afterwards. Very pleased and impressed with his attention to detail. Him and the team make every dental process I’ve had done so far super easy!

Dr. Kim is an excellent dentist! He explained what was happening, what he was doing, and why he was doing it with great detail and knowledge. He made next steps clear, but made sure to emphasis that I have to make the final decisions according to what makes sense to me. I have been to three different dentists in the past year who have all failed miserably. I drove 40 minuets out of my way and will continue to do so, as he is the best in the business. To top it off his supporting staff is just as amazing! They were kind, efficient, and worked well together as a team. I recommend Dr. Kim to all looking for a dentist, you will not be disappointed!

Wow! Great experience...Dr. Kim was thorough and friendly, there was no wait at all either. I didn't have my insurance card on me and the front desk figured it out immediately for me. This cleaning was probably the least painful and yet quick enough that I didn't spend forever in that chair. I'm so grateful!

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 .

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 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.
