Sedation Dentistry

We Get to Know You First!

The majority of patients either don't like going to the dentist or really really don't like going to the dentist. What makes a difference is Dr. Kim talking with you and finding out more about you and what he can do to make you feel more comfortable. Nothing should hurt with dentistry nowadays. By taking any dental treatment slowly, Dr. Kim is usually successful at "rehabbing" patients back into regular maintenance care.
