Best dentist in town! I had to go to three different offices after a botched root canal and my pain either got worse or I was referred to an Endodontist that quoted me at several thousand dollars co-pay even with insurance. Finally found Dr. Kim who was able to repair the damage that same week and did a wonderful job. Two weeks later and there’s no more pain and swelling at all. I wish I had gone here the first time. They didn’t even charge me the co-pay! Finally found a dentist that cares more about the health and comfort of his patients than nickel and diming everyone that walks in. Highly recommend.

Dr. Kim treats every patient like his family member and you can tell right away that he’s had a lot of experience. Surgery for an extraction was a breeze and I was back to normal the same night. Beginning implants now and I only trust Dr. Kim to handle something I’m going to live with for the rest of my life.

Sandy G. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a very pleasant experience at Dr. Kim’s office. The office was very inviting and actually quite pretty. I was told to sign in and a member of the staff escorted to the back to get set up in a room. Everyone was polite and accommodating. I felt really comfortable during my visit. I scheduled my appt at a great time too, so the staff was able to get me in and out in a timely fashion. I had a great experience at this office and will be back for future cleanings and other dental procedures. Thanks guys :]

I’ve had horrible experiences in previous dental offices so I was skeptical trying a new office but I’m glad I gave Dr. Kim’s office a chance. Since day once they have been very helpful. They take time to explain the treatments to me, notify me before time if my insurance doesn’t cover a treatment, they work with my schedule to fit me into their schedule. I highly recommend this office to any person that’s had a bad experience in any dental office.

They are very nice and professional. I feel very safe and comfortable there. They seems to be really caring. I was new patient but able to get treatment and deep cleaning on the first day to resolve the issues I had. They seems to be very busy place but accommodated my requests.
Deep cleaning is awesome!

Lynh N. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had 4 wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Kim over the last month. My 2 bottom teeth were impacted so i decided to have each side done at a time.  After the local anesthesia injections, I anxiously waited about 20 mins then the whole surgery only took approx 15 mins. I have to admit, Dr. Kim was quick yet gentle at the same time which made the whole process easy on myself, a real professional. He also kept checking to make sure you are doing ok the whole surgery. I was blessed that i was recovered super quick, would be able to eat almost normally after 3 days. The staffs are friendly too. I would recommend him for wisdom teeth extractions.

Young C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to this dentist for my wisdom teeth. After looking at some reviews on (the internet), I figured that this was the place to me (…)

When I arrived there, I was quickly serviced (even after being late due to traffic) and the xrays were very quick. They do not use film and their laptop is in the xray area so you can even see what your xrays look like.

After xrays, I was quickly moved to an available room where the Dr Kim quickly arrived and did my quick examination.

Today, I went in for my wisdom teeth and oh my what an experience. I thought it was going to be very very difficult, but the staff talked with me prior to the actual operation to help me relax. Once the actual procedure started, Dr Kim constantly talked to me to make sure I was doing okay. If I seemed like something was bothering me, he quickly stopped momentarily, checked up on me, and resumed. I had 3 wisdom teeth pulled out and the actual procedure itself was so short!

It’s been about 9 hours since the operation now and I feel very little pain without medication, no swelling, and I’m able to open my mouth fine.

Overall, this office is a great dentist practice, serviced by great people, and a great doctor. The staff is very friendly and Dr Kim is just amazing. This place is definitely a place to continue to visit.

Wendy A. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great office.. staff is super friendly and very helpful. I had many questions in regards to my daughters procedure and everything was answered accordingly. Will definitely come here again if needed.

Ruaa L. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


My whole family has been going to Dr. Kim for two years now and we’ve all been taken care of in the very best way. This dentist office is fast and efficient but with care and gentleness. Personally, I come here for all my teeth cleaning, whitening, and filling and I have always left happy and satisfied with the result. Just today I came in for a wisdom teeth extraction which I expected to be long and painful. However, under Dr. Kim’s kind and thorough care, I was perfectly numb, pain-free and out in less than thirty minutes. They even have me a stress ball and the dentist assistant talked me through the whole fifteen minute process! All the staff is very knowledgeable and the aftercare leaves you feeling stress and worry free. The front desk always works around my availability and are very flexible to accommodate both my work and school schedule. Honestly, finding a good dentist is hard especially with insurance. Dr. Kim is the best there is!!!

Hannah L. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist I’ve ever been to! Went there for my wisdom teeth extraction and it went so smoothly. They were so friendly and professional, and definitely made me feel at ease during the entire process. Since the moment I walked in, the receptionist greeted me politely and explained the paperwork to me patiently. Afterwards, I got my X-rays done and then was taken to one of the rooms to get my consultation. Decided to take all four wisdom teeth out then and there. They used numb shots for local anesthesia. I have trauma from numb shots in the past, so I was a bit nervous, but wow! Definitely the least painful experience with numb shots (of course it still hurt a bit, but I mean they’re needles going into your gum!). They needed the anesthesia to kick in before the extractions, but in the mean time, I got some teeth cleaning done. 🙂 The extractions itself took only 5 mins!! 5 MINS! Haha that’s faster than a starbucks during order coming out. I didn’t feel a thing, though I did feel some pressure. I listened to my iPod the whole time, so I was surprised when shortly after he told me I was finished. Barely any swelling. GO HERE FOR YOUR WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTIONS! I’m four teeth less wiser, but I’ve never felt better about my oral hygiene. 🙂

Dan C. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


They care so much and they are awesome. They try to accommodate and come in early when you need to and see you when you have an emergency. They genuinely care for you and they try their very best to clean, fix and teach you on how to care for your teeth. Dr. Timothy Kim is the best and always makes sure your teeth are great. Him and his staff really take care of you and are AWESOME!! I drive one hour away to come here and will not go anywhere else. The best service and they make you feel very comfortable. Check for yourself!!

Estela B. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


The dentist is not one of my favorite doctors, but Dr. Kim and his office have made it a good experience. For many years they’ve done my cleanings, fillings and a deep cleaning and so far i have been happy with their work completed. I have a root canal coming soon and should feel nervous, but they have made me feel confident that it will go well. Can’t thank them enough for helping me improve my smile.

Chrisi P. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am writing to express my gratitude regarding Dr Kim and his Staff..  Dr Kim is professional and kind; he genuinely listened to my concerns and provide an excellent job. Dr Kim and his Staff  are truly courteous and respectful and they explain the process of the procedure and they made the whole Dental experience as relaxing and comfortable. The Office atmosphere is clean and inviting in terms of comfortable and ease. The Staff at the front desk are very attentive and genuine and kind.  I am satisfied and pleased with the  Dr Kim’s Professionalism and Dentistry and his entire Staff!! by the way they have a excellent Office Manager! I will continue to go for my dental work and I will delightfully referred Dr Kim to my family and friends.
I look forward to my next appointment. Thank you Dr KIM

Cat Y. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


My friend recommended me to visit Dr. Kim. I’m so happy. I recently got braces so I needed extractions. He was so gentle and kept me calm as he extracted 4 teeth. Pain-less. I’m also grateful for Helen (the office manager) because she was super healthful when it comes to insurance and procedures.

John L. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Prior to finding Dr. Kim, I had been making the hour-long drive to see my family’s long-time dentist (in the Pasadena area). You have to understand that my family LOVES our long-time dentist. In fact, although my parents and brother all now live in the San Francisco area, they come down to see the family dentist twice a year. However, after seeing Dr. Kim for the past few years, I am confident to recommend him here on Yelp.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Kim for about 2 years now and have been satisfied with all of the work that he has done. I’ve gone to him for x-rays, cleanings, to have cavities filled, and for a deep cleaning (due to some gum issues that  had).

Dr. Kim and his staff, from the front desk to the hygienist, are all very friendly and competent. Even for regular cleanings, Dr. Kim takes the time to stop by, say hello, and ask how things are going.

I also appreciate that their offices are open on Saturdays, which is convenient for those who are unable to schedule dental appointments for the middle of the week.

Daniel L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in for a general check up on my teeth and a deep cleaning today. The customer service was great and I really liked the dentists at the office. They made me feel comfortable and asked me if I am doing well frequently. The dentist took care of the work in an efficient and timely manner. I could definitely feel the difference of the expertise of the dentist because it was my second time of deep cleaning. I felt less pain on my gum because the dentist had a very delicate manner. I would recommend my family and friends to go to the office because I trust their performance and service.

Alex H. from Wilmington, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hadn’t been to a dentist in years, a really bad decision, and was therefore terrified about going to the dentist. I finally mustered up the courage and went in and I had to get a lot of work done (2 root canals). And like I mentioned before I was completely terrified and started freaking out a bit when I was in the chair and he was starting to work on my teeth. It honestly couldn’t have been easy for him to focus on his work with  such a difficult patient, but he helped calm me down and it was nowhere near as painful as I was imagining it to be. I had to go a few mores time because my teeth were really bad and each time Dr. Kim was efficient, careful and overall just a really good dentist. He definitely helped to get rid of my insane fear of dentists in general.

Sarah K. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad I switched over to Dr. Kim. I think my previous dentist was (not a good match). I came to Dr. Kim because I needed an implant (my root canal became infected after two pregnancies). The price here was (great). Not only that, dr. Kim is truly caring. He prayed for me while he was working on me and made me feel so much safe. He is heaven sent!

Hyung K. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim is really kind and cares about his patients.
He knows what to do for his patients.
Price is also very good and cheaper than any other places.
Many say you get what you pay for but here you are getting much better than what you pay for.

Mary Mullins (Source: Google)


This place is wonderful! The doctor’s are very caring and all of the staff are very kind. I’m never in pain here and all the work I’ve had done has just been beautiful. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for top quality work.

Jay from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful doctor and staff with so much experience and patience. I wish I had gone sooner. He saved my tooth from infection and did a root canal and crown that finally eased the pain I was living with for months. The manager worked out an affordable payment plan which didn’t cost an arm and a leg and the front staff is very friendly. Five stars!

Saleh F. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very friendly and nice! They do a great job and in a very timely manner.
My 17-year-old sister took her wisdom teeth, my 16-year-old brother goes for a regular cleaning and I recently took my wisdom teeth there and we all had a good experience.
The help desk ladies are very sweet and respectful, the team that works inside are very gentle while preparing you for the doctor and most importantly all the questions we had are answered.
Highly recommend this dental corp and I will come back for sure.

Danielle X. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came here to the office as a new patient for root canal. The office staffs are very friendly, Dr. Kim is very professional and patient for each procedure, they explained things very clearly that ease my nerve and from the entire process I barely felt pain even though everyone is scared about root canal. I am glad I found Dr. Kim for my dentist.

Erin Franklyn (Source: Google)


Went to Keon-Jung Kim Dental Corp. Great location. Very clean place. Great staff. Fast and efficient dental work!

Andy P. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred here by my friend (who happens to be the daughter of Dr. Kim) and I seriously haven’t stopped telling my friends about this dentist.

I got my wisdom teeth removed (two different times. Top two , Bottom two). This is by far the BEST experience I’ve had. Both times I had very very very minimal swelling. He took 9 minutes per tooth too! He’s had SO much experience doing free medical missions trips where taking out teeth is now second nature to him. GET YOUR WISDOM TEETH REMOVED HERE. I give people funny looks when they said their wisdom teeth experience was like going to hell – uhh definitely both my instances dictated otherwise.

They also threw in teeth cleaning while at it.

The office is very beautiful and totally legit with high-tech equipment. They are mostly Korean workers but fluently bilingual. They are very calm and nice people. I love going here (when I need to) and I refer ALL my UCSD friends here who have SHIP. All of them come back with positive experiences.

Thanks so much. I felt very cared for and honored as a patient.

Kevin G. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend this place to anyone, very friendly staff. They made it very easy for me, someone who hates going to the dentist. Big shout out to Mike the dental hygienist, he’s a super cool guy and made me feel comfortable. If I could give this place 6 stars I would!

Joann K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred here through a friend and realized the hype wasn’t for nothing. The appointment making process was very easy with the super sweet staff (…). I initially came in for wisdom teeth extraction but soon discovered I had a couple cavities that needed to be regulated stat. The X-Rays & the extraction of my wisdom teeth happened all in one day. I went back a couple times to remove the stitches and rid my teeth of its cavities. Walked out of there, (my teeth) feelin’ like a million bucks. Dr. Kim and his staff are seriously the best. It’s always comforting going to a place that isn’t in it for the money but genuinely wants what’s best for you. I will most definitely be going here for all of my teeth needs.

Y. K. from Woodside, NY (Source: Yelp)


As a patient of Dr. Keon-Jung Kim of many years, I only have good things to say about him and his staff.
Dr. Kim is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and makes you feel completely at ease. He is thorough, efficient, and truly cares about his patients- everything one could hope for in one’s dentist.
I am always impressed with the superlative treatment I receive from Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I would recommend this practice to anyone in need of a caring and intelligent dentist who knows what he is doing.

Sung C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am highly grateful to all the dentists and admin staff for their kindness and help.
Before and after the treatment, they always let me know what they did and what they will do on my next visit. They explained to me very specifically about what I needed to know.

Additionally, I am very scared of dentist but they always listen  to me and check on me during the treatment if everything is ok, which I like the most about here. Now I am not that worried about going to dentist. Thank you!

Lilah P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to say, this was the best dental experience ever! Considering this was my first major operation, I was super nervous, but the front desk staff and the dentist made me feel very comfortable. I came in, signed some paperwork, and was put into the x-ray room right away (literally no wait time!!). I went into the room for some consultation and chose to take out all 4 of my wisdom teeth on the spot. The operation took less than 20 minutes!! Even with my impacted, curved bottom teeth that were near my nerves. He was really good at avoiding the nerve and he made the process as comfortable as possible. There was some pressure, but barely any pain because of the local anesthetic (I had to get an extra shot during the operation because it was hurting a bit, but it kicked in right away). They were really good at explaining what to do during the recovery period and I left satisfied, yet swollen (it wasn’t TOO bad, but I did look like a goldfish the next day). I’m definitely recommending this place to anyone who needs to get their wisdom teeth removed!

Raimee M. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been bringing myself and my family here for over a Decade. The staff is always friendly and helpful, and excellent with children! Now that they’ve moved the office is great too, clean and professional. Also my son goes to the orthodontist and they set up a payment plan for us. Overall they’re the best!

Joseph L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t often write reviews on help, but I had to write one after my visit to Dr. Kim.  I’ve gone to multiple dentists in the San Diego area and Dr. Kim is by far the best dentist I have ever been to.  His office is very high tech (I’ve never seen digital x-rays before) and they do a good job in telling you what procedures they are doing and why they are doing it.  Finally, Dr. Kim is just a great dentist.  He is very calm and patient and makes me feel really safe.  I had to get multiple fillings done and a wisdom tooth extracted.  It was by far the least painful oral surgical procedure I have ever experienced.  Although most of the employees are Korean, they all speak fluent English.  All in all, I highly recommend this dentist (…).

Nicole L. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was so worried going into get my wisdom tooth extracted. But everyone was so nice in assisting me with the process from prepping before the extraction and following up after the extraction too. The extraction itself was super quick! Probably 5 min for one wisdom tooth. Mr. Kim was very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend getting wisdom teeth extracted here, the doc a wisdom  tooth wizard!

Bill B. from Laguna Woods, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Kim for years. Great work, fantastic staff, QUICK AND PAINLESS! Thank you for the wonderful care, Dr. Kim!
