Meet the Doctors
Kee Kim, DDS
Dr. Kee Kim came to know dentistry through his father who was a dental lab technician. Growing up he always thought he would be an engineer or scientist. He originally went to the University of California, Berkeley for his undergrad and became a software engineer. After a couple years Dr. Kim realized his desire to help people in a more personal and direct approach. His father having been in the dental field for 20+ years made it easy for him to find his enthusiasm for dentistry. After this realization he found himself at the University of Southern California (USC) School of dentistry and graduated in 2007.
After working in private offices for a while, Dr. Kim took an offer to teach dental students as a clinical associate professor at USC. His main enjoyment in dentistry is doing full-mouth rehabilitations. Dr. Kim has a very extensive knowledge of different procedures such as root canals, cosmetics, adult orthodontics, rehabilitation, TMJ and implants. This know-how allows him to do procedures most specialists only perform.
Dr. Kim has interests in many different subjects. He still does some programming as a hobby. He's been working on his own projects in 3D scanning, printing, and robotics. He also enjoys playing musical instruments, watching movies, and doing outdoor activities with his wife and daughter.
