Like always, my checkup every 6 months went great, been coming here since 2016 even after moving further away from the clinic , Dr Kim is very courteous and professional, and so is everyone else, i always refer my close ones over here

Nice, clean office with very friendly staff! Had an appointment to take my wisdom teeth out, and I was nervous, despite being a dentist myself, but I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome!  He had all teeth out in no time, and I didn’t feel anything. Shoutout to the hygienist Lee as well, her local anesthetic technique was top-notch, no pain.  Looks like I found my new dentist.

I can’t praise Dr. Douglas Kim enough!! My husband needs major dental work done and after seeing other dentists, we were referred to Dr. Kim by a close friend. Thank God because after our first consultation, my husband felt so comfortable and appreciated Dr. Kim’s empathy, knowledge, and confidence.  Dr. Kim even explained other options with such assurance…and we just felt at ease with his genuine concern. Today was day 1 of my husbands procedure and so far so good!! I’m most likely going to change denstis for my mom and son. It doesn’t matter that we’re driving from torrance…. You’re in awesome hands with Dr. Kim and his staff!!! Thank you Dr. Kim!!!!

Dr. Kim saved me a bunch of money. My previous dentist I went to for a cleaning two weeks ago told me that I needed to get my filling redone on 3 molars and 1 root canal on a cracked tooth. Dr. Kim and his team told me my teeth were fine and that there’s no crack. He also said that my previous dentist didn’t even clean my teeth. Dr. Kim and his staff are outstanding. They actually care about a patients oral hygiene and aren’t trying to make a quick buck off you.

We had a wonderful experience with the staff here. My niece was visiting from out of state and having terrible pain. We were put in contact with this First Dental Care through 1800-Dentists and within a couple of hours she was being seen and treated. The staff sat and spoke with my niece and I and showed us what they were going to do with pictures and then explained why it needed to be done. We were so grateful for them being patient and thorough! She ended up having the 1st part of a root canal done here and she said they were very kind and quick during the procedure. Thank you First Dental Care for taking care of my niece and in such a kind and timely manner! Oh and they are very affordable!!!!

Yesterday was my first visit for a regular check up and all of the staff were professional and friendly! I was in and out quickly but in a great way. I arrived to my appointment about 10 minutes earlier to complete paper work and was taking my x rays quickly! The dental assistants were so nice and talkative making things a lot more comfortable and easy going compared to other places I’ve gone to. I will continue to see my dentist regularly now!

About 4 years ago, I was involved in a minor accident that left permanent damage on my two front teeth. The trauma caused my nerve to die on my right tooth and as a result, my tooth turned PURPLE! Over the years, it got worse until I finally went to the dentist to have it checked out. I went to serveral places to have my teeth looked at before a good friend of mine refferred me to Dr. Kim and I can’t thank her enough! After taking a good look at my teeth, Dr Kim reccommended that I would have the best results if a root canal was preformed on both my two front teeth and to also have a porcelain crown placed over them. I was very nervous the day I came in for the procedure, but it went by almost pain free! Most people are afraid whenever they hear the words “root canal”, but Dr. Kim made sure to always ask if I was okay and the results truly speak for itself. His staff are also very helpful and really go out of their way to assist you in any way they can!

I took my daughter here last year for her first dental appointment ever. She’s now three and they handled the “first-time-toddler” like pro’s! They took my little one to a special room in the back filled with stickers and toys for her to look at, and they made her feel comfortable and happy the entire time. In fact, she didn’t want to leave! Lol. After her appointment they gave her a toy, and made her first dental experience one to remember. While I was there I realized they are a family dentistry, so I could get treated there too. Fast forward one year, I’m having some discomfort so I call to make an app. From the very first phone call I already knew they would be AMAZING. Their staff is well informed and professional, but also personable and VERY kind. I got there and there was not much wait. I got thorough X-Rays done and they have top of the line equipment all the way through. Their staff was just as nice in persona as they had been on the phone. So, a year later, their standards were still HIGH and the quality of service was still the same – thumbs up and one star right there!After a full assessment of my situation, the manager, Grace, who is AMAZING, walked me through all my options from the most expensive to the most cost effective and showed me the benefits and cons of each. She said it was my choice to make and that they offered payment plans with Care Credit – third and fourth star right there. Dr. Kim walked in at that point and shared with me his experience and what he would do with one particular situation, but again, he said there’s no rush. I was super thrilled to hear from him because he knows his stuff. So confident and so nice. You can tell he loves his work and there’s nothing but honesty and good vibes at that place – 5 stars! WILL be going in next week for my first work and I’m actually excited! Who says that about going to the dentist?! Well, if you go there, you will!

Extremely satisfied and no more pain after 6 months!! Several months ago I went to another dentists office because of pain and i had a tooth that was badly decaying. They told me that I needed an implant, root canals, crowns, etc. Well after the first appointment at First Dental care I got my root canals done and Dr. Kim said he can probably save my tooth so i would not have to get an implant. Well, yea he saved my tooth and a boat load of cash for an implant. Dr. Kim even gave me great discounts and fixed my chip tooth that i had for 8 years. He also made my other front tooth the same color as all my other front teeth. He explained everything thoroughly and was not pushy about trying to sell me anything. I felt he had my best interest at heart. The staff were all nice and made me feel comfortable. Well now i have my root canals done, my crowns, chip tooth fixed, and all my teeth are the same color now. But most of all, no more pain and i can now chew on both sides of my mouth. Even though i will be moving about an hour away from this office location I will be returning to Dr. Kim for life! Now…. let me go and chew on my hard tacos on both sides of my mouth while looking all pretty!  ha!!

First off, thank you Dr. Doug Kim for always making sure my teeth is well maintained, and for always being so helpful. I’m glad that I’ve finally found a dental office where everyone is so kind, helpful, and professional. I highly recommend First Dental Care to anyone, and everyone that needs any type of dental work done.

Angelica M. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was here for the first time recently and had a great experience. They were very flexible with scheduling even got me in within a day. The staff is great and very attentive. Ofelia was one of the staff that helped us out and she was Awesome!!! She has so much patience with my kids and explained everything to them and took her time with them as well…I will definitely come back for all the family. The Dr. was very sweet and also made my kids feel welcome. Thanks First care Dental !!!

Jaeden S. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a first time mom hearing about the horror stories of some dental practice places I was so scared to bring my daughter to any dentist. I did my research and found this place. The outside may be a little outdated but please don’t make this turn you away. The inside is beautiful and the doctor is absolutely amazing. I felt beyond safe and will be bringing my daughter here from now on. Thank you First Dental Care for making this experience a great one for us.

As soon as you walk in you ‘re greeted warmly by the staff. They’re very good at remembering faces because they knew who I was on my second visit. I have a major fear of going to the dentist, enough to put it off until I NEED to go. Had to get 3 impacted wisdom teeth pulled. Dr. Kim and Dr. Choi were probably the first dentists to make me feel comfortable and at ease. They were both very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the diagnosis and treatment plan. I felt that they were really honest and only recommended what was best for me. I’ve been to other dentists who would suggest all these unnecessary work or would recommend the more expensive solutions just for billing purposes. During the procedure they constantly made sure I was okay, which I really appreciated. Did I mention I’m a wuss when it comes to shots? Well Dr. Kim has some magically powers because I couldn’t feel a thing when he injected the numbing shots.

First Dental is now my go to place for all my dental needs. I chose this place by random, and it’s the best decision I ever made. The ladies in the front and the entire staff are very friendly and helpful. Dr. Kim is the best dentist out there, a master of his craft. I had a deep clean done, and it was completely painless. He even made the injecting of the anesthesia painless, which is amazing. Dr. Kim is informative and thorough on what is needed to be done. He walks you through each step as he’s doing them, and he makes sure you’re not feeling any pain. I highly recommend this place to anybody deciding on a dentist.

Chaille K. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


About time I write a review for first dental care. I wouldn’t say I am a dentist connoisseur but I have had my fair share of dentist. Just having been experiencing different dentist and dentist offices over the many years I have been going Dr.Kim is my most favorite dentist. He is very clear and  thorough. He successfully finished two root canals I needed to get done one tooth had an infection for quite some time he made sure I had it taken care of. One tooth had a very bad cavity leading to a root canal he cleaned up before it had gotten worse. I had one cap that did not fit correctly to where it looked perfect due to me not going to get the right crown on sooner (I waited four months) he sent it back to get resized and had it for me the next day. Overall first dental care is now my permanent dentist office and my future family dentist. Do keep in mind I live an hour away. The drive is worth is for my now perfect teeth. Thank you Dr. Kim and your lovely staff

Zachary S. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife was recommended to first dental by a friend of ours and im soo glad she did. She had multiple things done from deep cleaning to mostly recently wisdome teeth extractions. My wife was sooo nervous but they reassured her that she would be ok. They talked to her through the whole process. 3 teeth out luckily only took about 30 minutes. felt no pain during it. Minimal pain and swelling next day. Once our daughter is old enough we def know where she is going. Amazing staff sweet,helpful, empathetic, and not greedy!. Places like this and people like dr douglas kim make going to the dentist a way better experience

Jenny C. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank godess we found this office.  Dr. Kim and all of his staffs are great.Dr. Kim’s very informative and detailed.  Sandy’s very understanding and caring and takes time to listen to her patients.  Love hygienist sorry I forgot her name but she remembers her patients and greets with her smile. Overall my family’s happy we found a great dental office near our home.  Thanks First Dental.

Stephen S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim, glad to have this guy as my primary dentist from now on.  All these years I’ve been going to subpar dentists to work on my teeth.  I’ve had a number of failed crowns and busted fillings.  I think I can trust this guy, even threw in a free teeth cleaning for my crown replacement.  Previous doc f’d it up and was growing cavities in between my crown and actual teeth.  Dr kim fixed it painlessly and easily.  He has a whole team doing different things to you but the main procedure done himself only.  He’s got a bit of a belly which makes him pretty jolly.  I was expecting a ton of pain but Santa brought me no pain crown replacement.

I drove down for the 4th of July long weekend and had an emergency (my daughter chipped her tooth a week before and it got infected).  I was staying near Disneyland with the family and couldn’t bear seeing my little girl in pain so I looked on Yelp and saw the awesome reviews for First Dental Care. Dr. Kim was extremely helpful, careful and gentle with my daughter, knowledgeable, and kept my girl calm, happy, and smiling throughout the emergency procedure.  The hygienists and associates were really sweet and made my job as a Dad a LOT easier too. A cool thing about this place was the decor wasn’t drab and outdated! It was really modern and clean, which is always a plus when going to the dentist office because we all know how other dental offices look like. I highly recommend First Dental Care and Dr. Kim and have referred all of my friends in Anaheim, Irvine, Buena Park, and Santa Ana, especially the one’s with kids.  We all know, as a parent, how important hygiene and teeth care are for our kids so I couldn’t be happier.  Thanks, Dr. Kim! Really appreciate you taking care of my family … the trip would’ve been a disaster if it wasn’t for you and your team

Dr. Doug kim is an honest dentist who will help his patient and not try to rip you off. He also has friendly staff who will make you feel welcome and take care of you. I have bad experience where another dentist gave false diagnosis that is had gum disease and charged me for antibiotic injection. A definite one less worry in my life.

Monte R. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Pleased to say that I had a wonderful experience. The entire staff was very pleasant and attentive and Dr. Kim just seems like a very genuine and knowledgable guy. As someone who works in the dental field, Im very aware of how shady some dentists can be but I could tell that Dr. Kim only had the intent on doing what was best for me, as a patient, not what was best for his wallet, and trust me, that’s rare. Not only that but he was very gentle and constantly made sure I was in no pain while getting the work I needed. This place is a gem and I recommend it for anyone looking for a dentist in the area.

Michelle C. from Loma Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have not gone to the dentist in many many years and was dreading to go. Everything from start to finish of my appointment was comfortable and not as bad as I imagined. Dr. Kim and his staff are extremely friendly and have great customer service! Dr. Kim made sure to explain everything that needed to be done during the initial check up and explained things step by step on what he was doing during the next appointment I had(for fillings). I was VERY NERVOUS but Dr. Kim made sure to keep me calm throughout the whole process.

Terry H. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just walked away from a dentist place thinking to myself…”that wasn’t so bad. I cant wait to come back Monday to finish the other half of my jaw.” I came on a Friday afternoon to First Dental, luckily getting an appointment with them at short moments notice. I have been meaning to get my teeth check for awhile. I found First Dental from Yelps and fortunately for me, i think i found my dentist. Having run into so many bad dentists over the years, I have been turned off by them. However, Dr. Kim was very genuine with his extraordinary staff. Unlike the many staffs i have met before at other dentists locations, the one that asked you to wait and kept you waiting. First Dental staffs made it their priority to get me in and understand that my time is precious. I was at awe to see how fast they worked. I decided to get a deep clean. Because I came toward the end of the day, Dr Kim knew he didn’t have time to do a full deep clean, so he offered to only do half my mouth. This was a great recommendation since i can eat with the other half. He did an amazing job injecting the needle into my gum, carefully moving it so I cannot feel the pain. I felt no pain, just a small tingling. I never knew that dentistry is an art and today I witnessed an artist skillfully performing his craft. Dr Kim did an amazing job working his hands and making sure to get rid of the gunks in my mouth. He shared stories and seemed very relaxed for a dentist. I felt completely at ease  the entire time. I even walked away with a bag of goodies, a few packs of floss and a toothbrush. Thank you Dr Kim! You are now my dentist.

I hate going to the dentist. First Dental changed that for me. I was diagnosed with 2 cavities and the need for a crown. Gulp. Luckily, Dr. Kim is awesome. Not only was he informative but he administered those dreaded mouth-numbing shots with finesse and ease. This made the whole process painless and bearable, even with the annoying whirring of those evil dentist drills. They turned on Planet Earth for me during the procedure. Watching ocean wildlife while getting your teeth worked on is actually quite soothing. Everyone who works in this office is top-notch: the receptionist was friendly, the X-ray person was efficient, the person holding the mouth suction thing was attentive, and like I mentioned before Dr. Kim is a great dentist. I still cringe at the thought of going to the dentist, but it’s nice to know that I’ll be going to one that I feel comfortable with. If you’re in need of a dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Kim and his wonderful staff

First Dental Care is just Ah-mazing! Both my kids and myself go to this dental office. I have nothing but great things to say from the staff to the doctors. Everyone here is truly grate and deal with kids and grown up kids as myself with excellent care. Dr. Kim aka Dr. Gentle-hands has worked on my deep cleaning and cavities I was super nervous having to get shots in my mouth but him and his assistant all made my experience as relaxed and easy as possible. They understand no one likes “The Shot” and so they apply “jelly” to pre-numb I requested for extra Jelly this just made me feel a lot more comfortable with the whole procedure. The kids were both seen by Dr. Nguyen she is just as amazing and is fantastic with kids! Needless to say I have found my dental office! Like every great place this is a Diamond in the rough.

Jessica M. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have just finished the last of my treatments with Dr.Kim and I’m super impressed ! I had taken a fall and chipped my front four teeth. I  needed composites done and I was so worried how it would turn out. I am pleased to say my teeth look amazing, so naturally perfect. You cannot tell they’ve ever been broken. I get so many compliments on my smile, I have my confidence back . The entire staff was so friendly and accommodating to my personal needs. I am also deathly afraid of needles and I didn’t feel a thing I was amazed . Pain free and beautiful results! Also great pricing!! Thank you Dr.Kim !

The long version: I came here after my crown and root canal broke and I was looking for someone who would try to preserve as much of my natural tooth as possible (I was trying to avoid an implant) – found that in Dr. Kim. On all of my visits the front desk was sweet, helpful, and they speak multiple languages (Spanish and Korean for sure, possibly more). When I went in I also opted for a check up and cleaning. They let me know there were several other cavities and showed them to me on the X-ray as well as with this tiny camera that goes in your mouth. I was disappointed to hear that because from the outside my smile looks clean and white. But from the camera I could see that they weren’t lying, there were definitely cavities that needed to go. The technician who did the camera stuff has an aunty vibe to her – super cute. She made me feel less embarrassed about my cavities and I never felt pressured into having more work done. She laid out my situation plainly and told me all of the prices and options so that I could make an informed decision. She also gave me recommendations for what I should have done right now and what could wait if I couldn’t afford everything. The broken root canal, she warned me, might need an implant but that the doctor would try to save it. When I met with Dr. Kim he also has a really friendly vibe, not at all scary or condescending. He was successful with my broken crown so I didn’t need the implant (very happy about that). So I opted to get all the cavities taken care of too and I’m really surprised how fast and painless it was. When Dr. Kim put the needle in, I literally couldn’t feel it – he’s got a good technique. He gave me an honest estimate for how long each of these types of fillings and crowns would last so I left feeling really informed and more in charge of my own care – I haven’t gotten that from any other dentist before.

I’ve been going to my uncle’s dental practice for over 10 years, and was reluctant to  change dentists.  My brother told me about his visit to Dr. Kim, and said I should check it out at least once. I’m now a happy patient. Got a deep cleaning, and the procedure couldn’t have gone better. My teeth came out hella clean, and it didn’t hurt a bit. To top it off, the staff was super nice & the office was immaculate. It might look a little ghetto on the outside, but don’t judge a book by its covers!  I give Dr. Kim two thumbs up!
