Words cannot begin to describe how wonderful this dental office is! Dr. Kim and his entire staff are the friendliest people you can meet, and you can feel the sense of comfort and support the moment you step into their office. Having moved around a lot, I’ve been to many dentists, and by far, this practice exceeds all expectations! Thank you for your amazing service!

Super friendly and professional staff, excellent communication and very easy to set up appointments. The dentists themselves were very gentle and explained things in an easy to follow manner. I came in for their 99 dollar new patient special and discovered that I had to have two broken fillings fixed, and they were able to see me the same day in order to fix them, which was very convenient. The quality of the fillings is also very good, I can barely tell the difference between them and my natural teeth. Overall very impressed with the services, I would definitely recommend Ace Dental, especially if you’re like me and have had anxiety about dental visits before.

Yes, the staff is very kind and professional. First time there and everyone was friendly and helpful with my visit in every way. Very clean and beautiful place to come to , also answer all my questions and concerns. I recommend this dental office!

I just had my first experience here at Ace Dental this morning! If you are terrified of the dentist as much as I am then you should have no worries coming here! I fell in love with the atmosphere and vibes as soon as I stepped in to the office immediately. The office was clean, super friendly staff and very professional! Dr. Kim and his staff gives you great comfort and assure that you will be well taken care of! Trust me, you’re in great hands! -Jennifer Nguyen

Dr. Kim is awesome. He did a tooth extraction for me and the process went very smoothly. I didn’t even know when he pulled the tooth out. He asked how I was feeling and I said good; I asked him when tooth will be out and he said it’s already out. Then he showed me my tooth. Great job Dr. Kim. I thank you and Harrison again.

I recently had to find a new dentist for myself, husband and 2 little ones and I took a chance with Ace Dental. I am glad to have followed my instincts and would highly recommend Dr Kim and his team of hygienists! I was immediately impressed when I received a phone call the following day after an online inquiry was sent. Everyone from the front office staff, hygienist, and Dr Kim were extremely friendly and this a blessing. We need more nice people in Boston, lol. Dr. Kim and his team were very transparent and patient with all my questions. I would definitely recommend Ace Dental to anyone looking for a great experience at the dentist.

I had my root canal done with Dr.Kim from his previous practice. Needless to say the operation was flawless. When I found out Dr.Kim had opened his own practice, I moved to his current practice Ace Dental, instantly. My girlfriend got her wisdom teeths removed from him, as well. Overall experience had been absolutely great. The staff’s service is superb. All around atmosphere is modern, clean and well-kept. Great doctor with great staffs, I recommend this dental to all of my friends, family and to you.

I was referred by my brother to this practice and I had such an amazing experience. From the phone calls from the receptionist, my warm greeting upon entering, my experience was great! My cleaning was very thorough and pain free. The music selection was second to none. I am so happy I chose this practice and I will continue to refer my family and friends here!

My family and I love ACE dental and would recommend them to any family or individual looking for dental care in this area. They are super communicative/ responsive and always make you feel comfortable. They are also fantastic about remembering questions you have asked and always follow up.

Reggie N. from Roslindale, Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Great dental office full of talented, professional and personable staff all around I must say!! The previous practice here (Dr. Dean) was the only dentist I had for 20+ years so initially the transition was worrisome for me! However, Dr. Kim and his team put those worries immediately to rest for me! I’ve encountered three hygienists so far (Janet, Jamie, and Erin) take your pick, they’re all great and super friendly!! Most recently, my hygienist was Erin who had to perform some deep cleaning (I will be flossing more going forward – I promise!). She was awesome and made me feel at ease even though I was slightly nervous (not a big fan of Nova-cane!). Erin made the experience effortless and my nervousness went right out the window immediately! Thanks Erin for a comforting experience and thank you to Dr. Kim, Lyndsey, and Lan as well. Keep up the great work!!

Robin J. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Another great experience at Ace Dental (well for me, not so much for Dr Kim since I’m a huge baby), but he was great!! so very kind and PATIENT with me, as were all the staff. It was my first visit for my crown, and needless to say my anxiety and past experiences got the best of me. Dr. Kim asked me my favorite singer, threw on some Whitney Houston, and went to work, making sure to check on me and give me small breaks. Harrison his assistant was great too. I can’t say enough, and I will continue my treatments. As I tell Lindsey and Lan (who are super cool ladies holding down the office), I’m a flight risk, lol, so they keep me coming back by their professionalism and amazing personalities. If it sounds like this is too good to be true, imagine how I feel…knowing my fear of the dentist. I highly recommend them!! Thanks to everyone at Ace for taking such good care of me.

I have lived in Roslindale for more than 15 years and OH MY! This dental place is amazing. I wish I had known about them sooner. The service is 10 stars from the receptionist to the doctor. Thank you for seeing me and having a treatment plan without gaps. Absolutely happy by being a part of Ace Dental

Ace Dental Boston is the best Dentist you can find in the greater Boston area. Dr. Kim is super kind and really cares for you personally. I had an amazing experience getting my wisdom tooth extracted today. It was so quick and painless that it completely changed what I think of when I hear the word Dentist. I used to be super anxious and afraid but Ace Dental has really changed that. I truly trust Ace Dental and I can walk in to all my appointments now with peace and comfort. They really care for you personally here: from your interactions on the phone; their generous reminders for appointments; making sure you know what you will be expecting to pay; and even getting the music of your choice when you get your treatment. I’m so grateful for them and I can truly recommend Ace Dental Boston to anyone, especially to those people who had bad experiences. Thank you!

Ace Dental Boston is amazing! Dr Shawn Kim is awesome! He is kind, caring and attentive. Janet, the Hygienist did a fantastic job on my cleaning and Dr Kim did an amazing job on my crowns. Ace Dental Boston uses nothing but state of the art top notch equipment. I was so impressed. The Patient Coordinator Lyndsey and Lan, the Office Manager are amazing. They make scheduling an appointment so easy. The Dental Assistants so knowledgeable and attentive. Everyone on the team is wonderful. They have very nice personalities that made my visit special. I can’t say enough about this practice. If you are looking for a new dentist make Ace dental your first and last stop. I also loved the fact that I didn’t have to wait long to be seen. I have found a new Dental home and I couldn’t be happier!! Donna A

Julia B. from Mattapan, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim is one of the best dentist I know in the Boston area. I went in last night to get a root canal and he did a wonderful job from beginning to end. I felt no pain from the time I walked in to the time I walked out. He was extremely patient and careful with the whole procedure. I am glad that I am a patient of his. I recommend him for anyone looking for a NEW dentist or looking to change dentist!

This is by far the best dental office I’ve been in. They use state of the art equipment and every session is seamless. Dr Kim is great along with the rest of the staff I have encountered (Harrison, Lyndsey Erin). If you are looking for a new dentist I highly recommend this place.

Sandu A. from Dedham, MA (Source: Yelp)


I definitely recommend Ace Dental because of it’s great stuff from the front desk with Lan to the back of the office with Dr. Kim and his team. They are all on top of their game, the service is impeccable, I was looking for a dentist since I moved from South Carolina and I found Ace Dental through a referral from a work colleague and I am so glad he referred me. Dr. Kim goes out of his way to welcome new clients (very nice touch) to conversation about my dental health that are involving, as a patient I am not left wondering what just happened to me, he communicates and is happy to illustrate the procedure he is going to perform in such layman terms. I have been to so many dentist and Dr. Kim is the best yet. Apart from the great stuff Ace Dental has the state of the art tools to help perform their work in a seem less way. The surroundings and the deco is just icing on an already great cake. I am all in for this team and I know if you visit them too at their location they are going to BLOW your mind. All the best Ace Dental team and thank you for always taking good care of my small family’s teeth

This is the best Dentist I’ve ever been to in my life. I’m usually petrified of dentist due to traumatizing events in the past with OTHER dentist. They were extremely gentle, cautious and they explained everything and showed me where I need work. I would recommend this dentist to everyone I meet.

Kaysema Washington (Source: Google)


Exceptional service! From the receptionist, hygienist and dentist I felt welcomed. The space was super cute and cozy. Picking my own music was definitely a perk! 🙂 This was my first time here and I already made all my follow-up appointments. I will definitely be referring friends and family. Great dental office! Keep up the great work!

Dezire M. from Dedham, MA (Source: Yelp)


5 Shining stars to the amazing dental practice. I moved here about a year ago and needed a new primary dentist. I researched online for a while before choosing this office. The reviews did no justice to what these team has to offer. From my first appointment I fell in love with the staff, and felt very comfortable. You are first greeted by Lyndsey who is the client coordinator. She is full of life, and ready to help in any way. I had a recent procedure done and I told her I was nervous. She spoke to me until it was time to go in, and made me feel a lot more calm than I had entered. She’s amazing! Joanne is also at the front, and oh so very sweet. She also took note that I was nervous and put the CUTEST New Hampshire teddy bear in my room to soothe my anxiety. That was something small that meant so much. Shaina, Harrison, and Karimah are all one of a kind! Down to earth, fun, attentive, and very knowledgeable and eager to answer all questions and make you comfortable! Now, the main attraction himself, DR. KIM! He is everything that I could have ever asked for in a provider. He also caught an on going I said that I had that my previous dentists had not caught. He is VERY thorough and informative with everything he does. He will answer any and all questions that you have. I love how realistic he is with me while still showing compassion. His passion for his patients and what he does radiates through the entire office. I could not thank this team enough for the compassion, knowledge, and professionalism that they have shown. I absolutely love it here, and feel like I am a part of a family who wants the best for myself and dental health. I love it here. Please give them a try. I’ve never been to an office like this. They’re Perfect! Thank you Ace Dental Boston so much. You have no idea what you all mean to me!

This Dental practice is awesome, what a cool relaxing environment. The staff is incredible. My 3 boys (under 7, one of them ADD) go here and the staff is so accommodating and understanding The receptionist read my kids a book whilst i was with one Son while he was getting cleaned. Very knowledgeable and current with update practices. I went yesterday for myself and regret not going sooner, i was embarrased and nervous and they were so understanding and set up a plan for me….love them!!!!!

This really was the best dental visit I’ve ever experienced. Everybody has such a great attitude and it makes you feel welcomed and in such a great mood. Erin the hygienist took care of me and she’s honestly amazing at doing her job and her great personality really assists in making you feel comfortable as possible.

Lena Yee (Source: Facebook)


Ace Dental Boston is the best dental practice I’ve ever been to! Lyndsey and Joanne at the front desk are amazing. They remember my name when I walk in the front door. They send reminders about my appointments and call to check on me after my root canal. I truly appreciate that! It shows that they care about their patients. Dr. Kim is gentle, professional, and caring. He’s always checking on how I’m doing and making sure I’m not in pain. Seriously, the best dentist I’ve ever had. Harrison and Erin are amazing dental hygienists. Everyone in the office have great personalities and you can tell they all love their jobs and work very well together. I love the vibe and everyone is easy to talk to. I highly recommend this place!

Zhen R. from Mattapan, Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Awesome dental office! The hygienist was friendly and the cleaning was painless. Dr. Kim was very professional and knowledgeable. He explained to me the cavities I have with x-rays and the intra-oral camera. I was also followed up with a detailed treatment plan. I would highly recommend this office to anyone who needs comprehensive dental care in this area.

I am not a review person, I don’t write reviews mostly. But I want share my experience with Ace dental Boston. I went to a dentist few months ago,because my tooth broke again (this one had root canal few years ago in my country),the dentist suggested to pull it out and do an implant. I always thought I should save my teeth as much as I can, so I decided to ask second opinion about this tooth. I did a lot of research from here and Google, because I don’t want to make any mistakes this time ,based on my not good experiences with other dentists. I find few dentist’s clinic from Yelp, and visit all in few weeks,then I decided to get my treatment with Dr. Kim I went to Ace dental 3 times, met Lan and Lyndsey ,they were friendly,making an appointment is smooth. I met Dr.Kim, he is young and active, answered all my questions professionally . I like the way Dr. Kim communicated with me. During the treatment,Dr. Kim always checked to see if I felt comfortable . I met Joanna, she been working there for long long time, she also tender with my tooth. So far my new crown is working well, filling of my other tooth is good too. Hopefully this work can last longer. I know how boring it can be working with the same thing every day, I am glad I met the team of Ace dental Boston ,everyone have the passion for their work. Thank you Dr.Kim and your team, keep up the good work.

I have been going to the dentist on River Street since it was James Murphy then Dr. Dean and now Dr Kim I had my teeth cleaned the other day, this is my second visit to the office and it was just a great experience from beginning to end. Very relaxing Lindsay the receptionist was super friendly and helpful regarding billing and booking appointments and Estella oh my goodness the best cleaning I’ve ever had in my life and I have to say sorry to my friend Elaine who used to be my hygienist I saw Dr Kim also came and gave me a good review. This was a very positive experience from the beginning to the end. See you in three months!!! Lorraine B

Cassandra's Z. from Dedham, MA (Source: Yelp)


This office is amazing. I have met everyone in the office and they are all always so happy and welcoming. I have a fear of the dentist and going gives me great anxiety. This office has made going to the dentist a breeze and a pleasure. All of the staff makes sure to say hello. Every interaction and appointment I have had was quick and easy. Lyndsey is so warm and always asks how you are and she genuinely cares. Lan the office manager is so helpful and reassuring and a pleasure to chat with. Janet was so nice and gentle. She reassured me the whole time of my cleaning and checked in to make sure I was ok several times. JoAnne is amazing and kind. She chatted with me and eased my fears during my fillings which I was very anxious about. Dr. Kim is great. He is so nice and did an amazing job on my fillings. He was quick with the needles that I was worried about. Before I knew it the three teeth were done and I was on my way. I highly recommend this office to anyone seeking dental care! I wish I could give ten stars. I am so happy I found this office and am finally able to get dental care again!

I was nervous prior to my appointment with Dr. Kim. However, this is by far the best dental practice that I’ve been to. The office seems to have the latest equipment and everything is really clean, which is important especially during covid. All the employees there were friendly, courteous, and helpful. My appointments were fast for a filling and cleaning, but the work Dr. Kim does is the best! He is knowledgeable and I didn’t have to worry about experiencing any pain. I’ve recommended this place to others I know!

Truly the BEST dental practice in ALL of Boston (and probably beyond). Ace Dental makes you feel like part of a bigger family with amazing customer service, the cleanest office, true care for their customers, and, oh yeah… great dental care!! My teeth have never been cleaner than they are now thanks to my girl Shaina. I couldn’t put 10 stars so 5 will have to do. Thank you to the Ace dental team!

Maria G. from Area 2/MIT, Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


I am not really one to write reviews. I wasn’t really sure how to start but I was going to this practice when it was Dr. Dean and I liked Dr. Dean. At one point before he retired and practice changed over I was thinking of switching Dentists because I guess I was looking for change and also second opinion as Dr. Dean told me he thinks I need mouth guard but I didn’t want to believe him. But I did need one. Anyway i am glad I still go here. I have nothing bad to say about the new practice! I believe I’ve been twice already. A cleaning and I just had a root canal on Saturday and I tell you I was not looking forward to it at all!! I was nervous. But it’s true as soon as you walk in it’s nothing but friendly, professionalism, courteous staff. The girls at front desk are great. Everyone makes you feel comfortable. One of The girls at front desk came and sat next to me and put me at ease before my root canal. My root canal went fine. It took me a long time to schedule this. One was because my ins. But Dr. Kim is great! He cares about his patients. I am glad I did it and got it over with. Very minimal pain or no pain I had and I was also trying to focus on the music. Thank god for the music they had playing! They did the place over which looks nice. Their equipment is up to date! Afterwards I did have little pain after the nova cane wore off but I expected. I think I have high tolerance for pain anyway. But I would def reccomend this practice! Dr. Kim is great!

Ayana M. from Hyde Park, MA (Source: Yelp)


I was a patient of the former dentist and owner of this practice, Dr. David. As patients, we were given letters from Dr. David stating that he chose Dr. Kim to take over the practice because of the care he shows his patients. He chose wisely! Dr. Kim and his staff are very friendly and professional. I even received restaurant recommendations from the receptionist, Lan. The dental hygienist, Janet was very informative and kind as well.

Going to the dentist has never been more pleasant! Everyone is extremely friendly & caring and they take great care of you from the moment you walk in to the second that you leave! Extra special shout out to Lyndsey at the front desk for her amazing customer service & my favorite dental hygienist Shaina!

Cynthia Oriakhi (Source: Google)


Excellent Service! From the front desk personnel to the dentists, they are all very kind. They make you feel welcome and comfortable. They all look happy to be there and to help you. High tech equipment too! This was my first visit and I must say, I was impressed. I will definitely be revisiting and spreading the good news. Thumbs up guys!!! Highly recommended!

My first experience at Ace Dental was a great experience, every staff member I came in contact with was polite and respectful down to setting my next appointment. The cleaning was amazing everything that was done was explained and the hygienist who did the cleaning constantly checked with me to be sure there was no discomfort. Five star experience all around
