★★★★★

Edith Price. I am a senior citizen that had severe dental issues and was initially unsure of getting braces at my age. However, from the onset Dr. Kim made me feel very comfortable with the orthodontic plan she outlined. I initially was referred to Metro West Dental Specialty Group for extensive oral surgery which was excellently performed by Dr. Miyamoto without any discomfort management issues. Dr. Kim’s perfectionistic skills has transformed my dental health and I am amazed at the results she has performed. Therefore, I would highly recommend her for orthodontia patients of all ages!! I also found the entire staff very friendly and extremely helpful with insurance issues. My sister always complained that I never smiled in pictures so she is very grateful that Dr. Kim’s exceptional work has given me the confidence to smile now when my picture is taken!!

Well I’m the person that get second Opinion so I started with Metro West Orthodontics first and like every thing I saw and heard their. So then I went 2 a different place that was West of 155th and the moment I walked into the office I NOTICED right away the difference between the 2 place. Ok I didn’t go there 4 the Looks but when I finally saw and heard the Doctor I was Equally uninterest. My decision to return to Metro West Orthodontics WAS A NOOOOO Brainer. My Advice is just give them a shot And see on your own Just seek a second opinion

The quality of care and continued support is outstanding. Metro West stays on top of the latest advances in the dental field. I can honestly say that due to the superior and thorough dental support I have received over the years, my overall health is top notch thanks to the corrective and in depth steps to save my dental health. The atmosphere in the office is professional and an example of quality customer care and service. They not only treat, but educate the patient to assure continued dental health. I truly am blessed to be one of their patients.

Metro West Dental Specialty Group has been nothing but positive for me. I have had extensive work done and I have gotten best results that I needed. The entire staff is very professional, kind & courteous and always greet me with kindness and a smile. The facility is very clean, modern and has a very comfortable feeling. Once you walk in the mood is comforting and relaxing! I highly recommend them. One of the best decisions I’ve made for my personal health needs.

I am so incredibly happy with the quality service I have received at Metro West. I started my braces about a year ago with Dr. Kim and she has been incredible throughout the entire process. She does a wonderful job of explaining a variety of treatment options and answering all questions. Both Dr. Kim and her assistant Kassie are always kind and welcoming. The front desk staff are also very helpful and friendly. I wouldn’t want to go through this process anywhere else, definitely recommend!

★★★★★

My husband sees Dr Miyamoto and I see his wife, Dr Kim (orthodontist).  They are very professional, caring, and knowledgeable.  Easy to reach when needed, explains procedures.  Their office is attractive, their staff, outstanding and helpful.  We trust them explicitly because of their professional training (In Boston) and their continued association with Creighton School of Dentistry  I believe Dr. M. is a department chairman.  I am glad to have this opportunity to say how much your care has meant to us..

★★★★★

We had an issue “pop-up” with a bracket while we were visiting Omaha.   The staff at Metro West went above and beyond to help us and lessen our anxiety.  As we arrived to the office not only did we find a beautiful, clean office but we were astonished to learn that Dr Kim was headed back to the office that day just to help our young ball player.  She was kind and very professional.  Not only did she fix the issue quickly but she did so while chatting with a very shy, nervous patient.  We all left with a huge smiles on our faces and grateful hearts that we happened into Dr. Kim’s office that day. Thank you for your beautiful office, amazing staff and you unyielding commitment to great patient care.

I will start off with saying, I am someone who hates going to the dentist. Everyone at Metro West is so kind and welcoming, right from when I walk in the door. I’m am always made to feel as if any concerns I have are their top priority. My last cleaning was amazing and I am truly grateful that I decided to go here for my treatment.

★★★★★

Dr. Kim and her staff are amazing. She always goes above and beyond to make sure I am comfortable and happy with my teeth. Dr. Kim is kind, knowledgeable, and she really cares about her patients. The entire staff at Metro West is very personable and professional. Dr. Kim has taken very good care of me and I am so grateful to have her as my orthodontist!

★★★★★

I had surgery with Dr. Miyamoto a couple of years ago and now have been with Dr. Kim for the past 2 years as she has helped me through jaw surgery and orthodontia. They both are amazing people, as well as doctors. I am so grateful that my dentist referred me to them individually. As a surgeon myself, they have been flexible with scheduling and making time for me. The staff is friendly and always greet me by name. They have been very understanding when I have had to cancel last minute, lost retainers, or just called to ask questions. I have and would recommend Metrowest Dental to anyone needing orthodontic and/or periodontic care. I plan to continue to fly back to Omaha to continue my care even though I am moving out of the region.

I have been seeing Dr. Kim for a while now. (My teeth were bad). She has been wonderful, my teeth are now straight and I couldn’t be happier. Dr. Kim was great through the whole process always seemed happy every time I came in, even when I broke something and she was always honest when adjusting or getting me to make a decision on what we should do. Although I am happy my braces are off I going to miss hearing her say “oh your teeth are gonna hurt”. She was always right when saying that but the pain didn’t last long and my teeth and smile look awesome! I would recommend Dr. Kim at Metro West to anyone.

Wow!!! Dr. Kim really knows her stuff!!!! I had tons of questions and concerns. She was patient and kind and explained everything to me. She said they believe in educating their patients so that we as the patient are empowered to make the best decisions for our bodies. It was an amazing experience and I know I am in the hands of one of the smartest doctors around! Highly recommend Dr. Kim and her practice! Oh yes, I should mention that the facility was top notch too! Clean, modern, and even had amenities that made the visit a treat like you were visiting a dental spa. (Nespresso maker, water bottles, vaporizer, etc.). The office staff was really friendly and helpful too! They made it a fun and enjoyable experience!

★★★★★

Dr. Kim is an exceptional orthodontist! Many of my friends who have done Invisalign, their orthodontist took scans, sent them in, and let the computer determine the best treatment.. not the way to do it. Dr. Kim took the time to tailor my treatment plan down to each individual tooth and adjust it accordingly before my Invisalign were ever made. I highly recommend seeking out Metro West for your orthodontic needs. Oh, and their staff are EXCELLENT at working with you on financing, insurance, and scheduling!

★★★★★

Dr. Kim is a great Orthodontist and I’d definitely recommend her to anyone looking. My jaw was clicking quite bad because I had been grinding my teeth and she fitted me for a specialty night guard called a Mago (I think). She was very thorough and really cared that I got better, that the piece fit me just right, and that I was diligent about getting it adjusted regularly to make sure my jaw didn’t move over time. Now a year later my jaw is back to normal and I’m really happy I saw her to get everything aligned properly.

I have been seen by at least 10 oral surgeons in the last 10 years and I finally found the best crew ever. My situation was so complicated! My friend recommended Dr. Miyamoto and Dr. Kim. They both knew what to do right away! They are very knowledgable and thorough in their work. I feel very blessed to know both these doctors! Everyone in the office makes you feel at home, they are friendly and professional! I highly recommend these doctors, they are the best in Omaha!

★★★★★

I have been coming to see Dr. Kim for over two years now, and Dr. Kim and the rest of the staff are by far some of the greatest people i’ve met. This staff is a group of hilarious, outgoing, and super friendly people. I would recommend anyone needing dental work to this office. I truly am gonna miss all these wonderful people when I am no longer coming here. These people will always have a special place in my life. Thank you all!

I was really nervous about my surgery and they took really good care of me and went out of their way to make me feel more comfortable with everything. They also know me by name so every time in for an appointment they just tell me to sit down and they’ll check me in. They take good care of their customers for sure.

I saw Dr. Kim for my yearly adjustment today. I was anxious as I hadn’t been wearing my device regularly since the flood of earlier this year. I explained to Dr Kim about having to evacuate and how my daughter thought to pack my device though I was sure I was going to be back home in a few days. So glad she packed it. Dr. Kim was so compassionate today. We did the adjustment and she sent me on my way….no dreaded lecture 🙂 I will always recommend Dr Kim, she is professional and compassionate.

★★★★★

Dr. Miyamoto performed periodontal surgery and a bone graft, and now I am seeing Dr. Kim for braces to correct a long-standing problem. I can’t say enough good things about them and their wonderful staff and associates. The experience has been painless, the visits are truly enjoyable (it’s relaxing!), and the results so far are amazing. Fantastic experience.

Nancy M. from Omaha, NE (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been searching for many years for a good oral surgeon and my girlfriend found Dr. Miyamoto and recommended him to me. I also saw Dr. Kim for my orthodontic work. They are very professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. My situation was very complicated but they both knew exactly what to do. I would highly recommend both these doctors! Their staff is very friendly, personal, and professional also. This group is the best in Omaha!

Ji K. from Omaha, NE (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Taera Kim, orthodontist, is amazing! She carefully examined my teeth arrangement, and fully reflected my desired outcome in the treatment plan. It took us a couple of months to finilize my Invisalign treatment plan. She not only cares about a perfect arrangement of my teeth, but also cares about the health of my teeth and gums. I’ve been wearing my Invisalign aligners for about a year now, and I’ve just finished my first series of Invisalign trays. I am 30 years old, yet, the result turns out greater than I expected. I am waiting for another series of my refinement trays (Invisalign aligners). I can’t wait to wear them. Overall, I higly recommend her for your orthodontist.

I have developed such an affection for Dr. Kim since the day I met her many years ago when a was suffering with 8 loose teeth and a night guard that needed drastic adjusting because of excessive clenching and grinding during sleep. Dr. Kim is a very wise professional who is also a good listener. She has always taken the time to offer her dental/medical advice in an effort to help me. For example, she wrote a referral for physical therapy for neck issues I was struggling with, and just today, she devised a clever suggestion of placing gauze between my cheek and night guard to prevent annoying pinching of my cheek! This pinching has been occurring since the loss of my bridge which resulted in 2 missing teeth (#13 and #14) causing the collapse of my cheek in that area. So, until I am able to get crowns on these 2 teeth, I will enjoy relief that her suggestion provides. I am so very grateful for having met Dr. Kim and for her warm, friendly demeanor as well as her superior professional services.

★★★★★

Definitely recommend to everyone, especially if you are adult and want to wear braces. I consulted other orthodontist before I discussed with Dr. Kim. I finally choose Dr. Kim because she provided sound explanation and very reasonable recommendation based on my condition without trying to charge me more than what I need. The overall time I worked with her was very pleasant. If anything emergency occurred, I always able to schedule the appointment at the same day or very next day. The total treatment time was elongated due to COVID but not too bad. After wearing the braces for 15 months, I’m really happy and satisfied with the final results!

★★★★★

I have been a patient of Dr. Kim’s since 2018. I met with several orthodontists before choosing her because she specializes in TMJ and was willing to work with multiple jaw surgeons to help me find the best path forward. From MAGO guards, to Invisalign, traditional braces, surgery, and continued jaw support she has been amazing. Not to mention her meticulous attention to detail. I could not have made a better choice than to go with Dr. Kim and Metro West! The entire staff is very accommodating.

Robert S. from Omaha, NE (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

My experience with Dr. Kim has been great, the staff are always friendly and helpful. I don’t know too many people who enjoy going to the dentist, but I don’t have anything but good things to say about Metro West Dental… I would highly recommend this staff to anyone I know!

★★★★★

They’ve taken good care of me. Dr. Miyamoto and Dr. Kim are a cute couple who do great work. After Dr. Miyamoto did a surgery for me, Dr. Kim caught me and talked with me about orthodontic options completely out of her own time, which I really appreciated. The doctors, Juanita, Tami, Amanda and the rest of the staff are awesome, friendly and super funny. I really like them all, and they’ve helped me be more relaxed in what would’ve been a stressful time. Thank you!

★★★★★

I saw Dr.Kim for a consultation and loved the way she took the time to explain my couple options and their outcomes for my future dental care. Didn’t rush through my appointment and answered all my questions with professionalism and a passion for what she does. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great orthodontist.

Our daughter needed extensive dental procedures. Dr Kim has treated her for several years. At our appointment this month she said we did not need to come back for a year. Dr. Kim and her staff have been professional, caring and the results of the treatment she has given our daughter has been amazing. She corrected her jaw alignment, her teeth spacing and other problems. We would recommend Metro West Dental to everyone needing dental care. This experience had made a significant impact on our daughters life.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kim and Dr. Miyamoto and they are both great. Their bedside manners are exceptional and they really do excellent work. The staff is very friendly and over the last 3 and a half years of visiting the office, I’ve always had a wonderful experience. The new office is very tastefully decorated, contemporary style.

For more than a decade I’ve never felt comfortable smiling. Dr. Kim changed that. Although there’s still more to go, I’ve gotten better results in less than 2 years here compared to the 6 years at my previous ortho. I can’t stress enough how amazing Dr. Kim has been to work with. From the very beginning she’s been very understanding with my dental situation and explaining my different options and what is needed. Very diligent in wanting to make sure we’re satisfied with our smile. Great team as well, always lovely and welcoming. Their teamwork really comes together to make Metro West as impressive as it is! I’ll forever be grateful to my dentist for recommending me coming over to Metro West for my ortho work.

Thanks to Dr. Kim and her team, I now wear a beautiful and confident smile everyday. I can say with full confidence that she, Dr. Miyamoto, and Dr. Lang work extremely hard at always putting patient care first, and the whole team is very professional, knowledgeable, and willing to answer all questions. They really treat you like family here!

As a patient of both Dr. Kim and Dr. Miyamoto, I was and continue to be blown away by their skills and sense of perfectionism. If you want anyone to be a perfectionist, it’s your orthodontist and periodontist. They worked together to coordinate and implement my treatment plan and I really couldn’t have asked for a better team to entrust my teeth to. Dr. Miyamoto’s calm confidence was reassuring as I underwent the implant surgery. Dr. Kim is incredibly personable and sees her patients as more than just a set of crooked teeth to fix. She’s incredibly meticulous and won’t be satisfied until your teeth are as perfect as can be. The office is clean and modern with ample parking space. The office staff is warm, welcoming, and professional and they always greet me by my name. Quite frankly, I think it speaks volumes when I can confidently say that I look forward to my orthodontic visits rather than dreading them. I would recommend Metro West to anyone and everyone!
