I had an appointment with Dr. Kim recently for a dental check and he was such a nice man. He was so friendly and accommodating. He puts you at ease and he is very competent. Knows his job well and the staff also were so accommodating and kind. As you can see, they almost got positive reviews which is why I chose them in the first place. Yelp is such a helpful arena where you get to choose the best. Anyway, the clinic was equipped with modern tools and so neat and cool. If you ask me about the price, well, it can be a bit pricey but not complaining if you get the best result. Trusted and reliable dental center in LA

I’m finally freakin’ pain-free after 7 months of agony.  I’ve seen 3 different dentist (including a personal friend) but without success.  It just tells you that it is not a matter of where the dentists are geographically located, what matters is that the dentists know what they are doing, take their time and take pride (without conceit) in their profession.  I finally found a dentist that I feel so comfortable with because I know that he not only cares but take pride in what he does.  You’re not just a patient, you’re a person.  I’m the health care field as well so I know what I’m talking about.  🙂 Dr. Jang Wook Kim, DDS is the man.  I forgot to mention that his facility is SUPER CLEAN which is a major plus.  Another major plus are the staff

Elysse P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just moved to LA a few months ago and finally got myself a new dentist. Both the front desk and the X-Ray tech were very welcoming and warm which really reflects on the practice and the dentist. Dr. Kim is very friendly, informative, honest, thorough, and caring. He gets the job done and consciously makes an effort to create a personal relationship with his patients. Haha he’s very chill… we even talked about the usual K-Town spots we drink soju and eat at… well where I drink and eat at… Of course Dr. Kim doesn’t do that anymore. 😉 I’m glad I found a great dentist in my neighborhood! Looking forward to my next visit!!

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


I am an international student studying in LA and this was my first time visiting a dentist outside my home country. I have permanent retainers on and I wanted a routine check-up and a teeth cleaning. I relied on yelp totally for reviews and I am not disappointed. I got an appointment in a week and they signed me up for the new patient special, that involves a consultation, X-rays, teeth cleaning and polishing. Overall I found everyone in the office and Dr. Kim very professional and thorough in their work. I an very happy with this dental center and will recommend it especially to people in LA who are new to the U.S

Franklin H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


One of the drawbacks of moving is that you no longer get to go to your favorite providers. I’ve moved away from LA and I just had to start my search for a new dentist; that made me deeply miss Dr. Kim and his team at Miracle Mile, and I knew I needed to drop a quick review. It’s really hard finding great medical providers of any kind. They need to be nice, they need to be experienced, and they need to be providing only the specific solutions needed for your condition. In LA, when I was looking for a great dentist, I found plenty that were overly nice and had a hidden agenda of upselling many different unnecessary services ($100 for this special cleaning fluid, $50 for this random procedure) etc. When I first visited Dr. Kim, I admired his bedside manner, thoroughness, and easy going nature. He’s never tried to upsell me and only given me honest assessments about my needs. I was a patient there for nearly seven years! He certainly fit my criteria for excellent medical providers, and I hope you find his services as fantastic as I did

K. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


So great!  I have been trying to use my Yelp review powers for good and not evil by reviewing places that really stand out and deserve the 4-5 stars.  Anyway, hopping onto Yelp to give this practice a big thumbs up and 5 star rating. Went to a practice in Rowland Heights run by a father-daughter dentist duo for a cleaning and to repair a crown that I chipped.  The daughter dentist finished my cleaning and said that I had FOUR cavities that needed filling.  I was pretty humiliated because I’m a grown ass woman who should NOT be getting cavities anymore (my love of starburst be damned)!  Anyway, I was bummed and a little confused because I brush my teeth a million times a day and wasn’t in any pain.  I made the appointment for the cavity filling and crown replacement and went home.  My sister told me to go to her dentist (Dr. Kim) because she likes him a lot and thought it was fishy that I could have cavities.  I was a little unsure because he’s ALL the way in LA but I went anyway.  Dr. Kim took x-rays and did an exam and GUESS WHAT?!  No cavities!!  None!  Zip!  I could NOT believe that the previous dentist was about to drill into my cavity-free teeth just to make some money.  Talk about assault.  Talk about I’m re-living my anger and am reconsidering my use-my-Yelp-powers-for-good only policy.  Seriously, that Rowland dentist makes me feel like dentists can be so shady. Anyway, Dr. Kim took care of my crown, which was painless and perfect.  His practice is clean and he’s really easy to talk to, which makes the whole process nice.  Above all, he is HONEST!  I trust him with all my teeth and my hubby’s teeth.  Yes, it a long ass drive from OC to get there but he’s like my friend-of a friend type of car mechanic: I’ve found a truthful dentist who actually cares about my teeth health (is that a thing?) and he’s not willing to compromise my teeth health (I’m making it a thing) to make a buck.  Huge fan

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


I don’t need to describe so much because I am extremely happy to find Dr. Kim! Best dentist I have met in Los Angeles! Patient coordinator named Mida is extremely sincere and professional. I was mis diagnosed with root canal  from Beverly West Dental Group in western ave yesterday thinking and believing my life is ruined. Stressed so much and wasn’t able to sleep all night until today I got teeth cleaning done by hygienist names Alex, she’s so gentle, caring and professional, where I didn’t even feel anything while I was getting cleaning done. On top of that,  no numbing was needed. Despite the fact that I don’t have PPO insurance, it’s really worth to pay $110 to get your regular teeth clean once or twice a year! They also validate your parking, what more can you ask! Dr. Kim, Alex and Mida are one of the most sweetest, professional dr and staffs I have ever met! Unsure which dentist to get your teeth checked up, go to Dr. Kim!! He’ll genuinely take care your teeth. So many more to say how happy I am, just go try yourself and you’ll be Dr Kim’s loyal patient

Tiff P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient here for 4 years and would never go anywhere else. I originally picked this dental office because it was conveniently located 1/2 a block from my apartment. I IMMEDIATELY fell in love with them because they were open on Saturdays and it is really difficult for me to take time off work. And all this happened before I even stepped foot into the office. I was traumatized by the dental experiences I had as a child and young adult and I thought that those experiences were what I should expect at any dental office. Once I met Dr. Kim, I realized how incorrect that idea was. His staff is so friendly and helpful and Dr. Kim is the kind of doctor who will spend hours with you and answer any question you have. I came in to have significant dental work done with him and he talked me through all of my options and helped me make the decision that was right for me. NOT the decision that was most beneficial to his bottom line. I have never felt like I was being taken advantage of and have always felt relaxed and well-informed about any procedures I have undergone at this office. Dr. Kim always remembers personal details about me and is always so welcoming and kind. He has never been patronizing (even though I’m sure I deserve many lectures about my dental care) and he always seems to genuinely care about me. He and his staff make sure I’m comfortable and not in any pain and he always tells me what to expect before he does it.  I have recommended him to coworkers and family and all of them love him too. The office is located on the 8th floor of the building and every chair has a mini television screen attached to it and the patient controls the remote. I seriously can’t recommend them more highly

Evan H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


It had been years… like 6 or more years since I’d been to the dentist.  Here in LA, there are many places to go, but you never know what you’re getting.  I called around to look for the best deal and found this one.  However, just having a low bill and an awful experience isn’t worth it.  So I read some of these posts and went for it.  Dr. Kim is one of the nicest guys I’ve met.  He knows what he’s talking about, and is not there to con you into anything.  He’s really good on sensitive teeth and his staff are all super nice.  I think I’ve found my LA dentist finally! UPDATE 3 YEARS LATER! So I went to see Dr. Kim to have all my amalgams/mercury fillings taken out. He was extremely careful and used that rubber tooth isolator to keep any accidental mercury falling down my throat. I had 5 done in total. This Dr. is so good with making sure you don’t feel pain and that your comfortable. I love him! Now I know I’ve found my LA dentist!

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


After 15 years of being with a terrific dentist that Ioved who closed her office, I had to find a new dentist to keep my smile in good condition. After searching for recommendations, I finally got one and it was a trustworthy person. My physician. Long story short, today was my appointment, and I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. The staff were friendly and efficient and Dr. Kim is knowledgeable, funny, compassionate and a great talker. He cleaned the heck out of my teeth. My Hollywood smile is back in effect. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs dental care

Tam V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


It was time for me to get a cleaning and get my teeth checked out since they were starting to get sensitive. The staff was very polite – From booking my appointment and making sure I was covered with my insurance to the end of my visit.  Dr. Kim and his assistant were great! After being examined I needed to have 2 root canals in my front teeth and a couple fillings. Dr. Kim was very thorough and showed me the problem areas and answered any concerns I had. He wasn’t pushy like other dentists I’ve been to, who just wants to make an extra buck.
Sean, the hygienist did a great job cleaning my teeth and made me feel very comfortable. When I came back in for my root canal Dr. Kim remembered me and bits of our conversation from the prior visit, This I did not expect. This just showed me that Dr. Kim really cares about his patients and he isn’t making conversation to make them. The staff has good chemistry as well. I can tell Dr. Kim treats his patients and staff members kindly and with respect. They offer parking in the parking structure below the building. Just remember to get stickers from the receptionist to show downstairs. The best and most honest dental visit I’ve had

Sally N. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend this dental office! The facility is squeaky clean, the front dest clerk and X-ray tech were friendly and welcoming, the dental hygenist, Kim was so gentle and thorough with my teeth cleaning, and Dr. Kim is needless to say….amazing.  I’ve been coming to him for a few years and haven’t considered seeing any other dentist since. He’s very thorough, informative, and HONEST. He always makes me feel at ease while he does his work and never hesitates to stop to ask me if I’m feeling okay. I’m looking forward to my next check up! I also met with the orthodontist yesterday for my braces consultation. She was so sweet and informative. I will definitely see her again very soon!

N. Justine K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE MIRACLE MILE DENTAL CENTER. The staff is so caring and nice. They work with your insurance to make sure you’re getting the most out of your coverage.  I have never met a dental group that cares so much for their patients- and I’m relatively new to the scene. Dr. Kim gave me options on treatment and Barbara took time to ensure that I would be able to get the treatment I required at a very fair price. The desk staff reminds you to come in, sends you handy postcards and is just really warm and happy to see their patients. No attitude whatsoever! Dr. O, the dental hygenist gave me tips on quitting smoking, flossing correctly without tearing your gums (sweep floss along the sides of teeth) and put me at ease while she did some scaling work. They took careful notes on my gumline and the TV on the dental chair is enough to distract you from that unnerving whirring sound of the drill. So, Dr. Kim and I totally bonded over – of all things- DURAN DURAN. It turns out his sister is a huge fan and he went to their concerts in Korea. I was totally on the same page as my cousins were total Duranies and although I didn’t get to see them in concert in the 80’s because I was too young- I finally managed to see them when they played at LA Live in 2011. Yes, my healthcare decisions will all be based on Duran Duran. It’s a good criteria to use to judge how I get along with my medical providers. OK, enough sarcasm. They just are the best all around. Free validation and nifty toothpaste, brush and floss samples

Chris M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The dentist recalled my fillings and asked about them – it showed me dr. cared about the procedure and how I was feeling. From the receptionist, the hygienist, to the dentist there is a high degree of professionalism exhibited throughout the staff. I’ve been using Miracle Mile dental since i was a small child and it has maintained its same excellent standard of service for the entire time. I am always impressed with the dentist. Dr. is always nice and professional, and appears to genuinely care about my comfort

Vanessa R. from Central LA, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was recently disheartened by my previous dentist and the low quality service I was provided. I was going to that office for more than 20 years but the previous dentist retired. Long story short, this dental office was pushing at least 5 root canals, 3-4 fillings, crowns etc for 4,300 dollars out of pocket. That’s after they charged my insurance for a ridiculously priced cleaning, evaluation, etc. OUT of pocket! They had the nerve to push a “loan” as a means to pay. The money wasn’t the issue, it was the ridiculousness of having so many root canals pushed as treatments, without further discussion. One look at the X-ray. One look. I go to the dentist every year, so it was really strange to hear that….It pissed me off enough for me to seek a second opinion and I found my current dentist via yelp/google. I was looking for a really reliable and honest dentist to give me a second opinion and I’ll never look back. He doesn’t push any ridiculous treatments, he’s honest, and the wait time is practically non-existent. The staff is really nice and helpful. Everything about this office is a great experience. The work he does is excellent

David J. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim is an excellent dentist with equally professional staff. He explains everything very clearly. He is honest and never tries to suggest services that aren’t needed. In fact, he disproved the need for services recommended by my other Beverly Hills practitioners. Dr. Kim also performs cleanings himself which allows him to know his patients and their condition. His assistant, Rosi, is also terrific. It is always a pleasant experience. It’s like an old school dentist’s office with all the new tools. Front desk is also friendly and helpful. Highly recommend

Izz B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I used to have pretty bad experience with dentists in Hollywood, as most of them were very pushy and would try to sell you venires or other unnecessary treatments for perfectly healthy teeth, or bleach them to the point of pain and discomfort. Well, that’s not the case with the Miracle Mile Dental Center! Dr. Kim is amazing!!! and so is his staff! He has incredible knowledge and is not only VERY SKILLED AND PROFESSIONAL (and i emphasize VERY as he saved my tooth from a root canal!), but also is not pushy and doesn’t try to sell you things that you may not need. He asks questions and tactfully makes suggestions but  he will not push you to anything. If you decide that you are interested in or are considering getting specific “beauty treatment” for your teeth, then he will explain all process of it,  with all pros and cons. He is very gentle and all works that he has done on my teeth were practically painless! (and that was a new experience for me as well.) Thanks to Dr. Kim, i am no longer afraid to go to the dentist – i had a really good experience and i highly recommend Dr. Kim and Miracle Mile Comprehensive Dental Cente

Bodara O'Brien (Source: Google)


Dr.Kim is by far the best dentist! He was recommended by a co-worker and since seeing him I can truly say my dentist phobia has went away! The staff are friendly, there’s rarely any wait and they give you courtesy/reminder calls and will go out of their way to help you in any way they can. I recommend Dr.Kim and the Miracle Mile Comprehensive Dental Center to all my friends and family!

Whitney G. from California (Source: Yelp)


VERY CLEAN. PROFESSIONAL. HONEST. INTELLIGENT. SENSIBLE. I have been going here for 5 years, ever since I moved to LA.  I got so lucky finding this place! Easy parking in structure (they validate you so it is free) or meter marking right in front.  Dr. Kim and his staff are super nice, friendly, and professional.  Each dentist chair has a television with cable so it will distract you if you don’t like going to the dentist.  I have gotten the works done here: cavities, root canals, crowns, teeth whitening, cleaning.  They do a great job on everything.  Dr. Kim did a crown on one of my teeth next to another crown done by my previous dentist and you can really see the difference in his work.  The crown he did looks so much better than the other dentist’s work, it is very impressive.  After a couple years of getting cavities filled with Dr. Kim, I am all caught up and haven’t had a cavity in years, so I just get my teeth cleanings and x-rays now.  My fiance just did the Zoom teeth whitening today and it made a dramatic difference.  He is a smoker, coffee drinker, and dark soda drinker, and his teeth are multiple shades whiter.  Bottom line: Everyone needs a dentist, so if you are in the Los Angeles area, this is the place to go!

Jenn H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Located in Miracle Mile, fairely easy to find the building and parking. Plenty of parking at the lot and the front/back of the building. The office was very clean and modern. (The art pieces on the wall calmed me down alot. -I hate going to a dentist in general.)  Dr. was very informative and honest not pushing any unnecessary procedures. Not every procedure I have undergone was covered by my insurance. I was a little bit upset but Dr. lowered my payment out of my pocket so I was very happy!!  I usually had to wait (even though I had appointments) at my other dental offices, however, I was able to come in and start my session right away here at Miracle Mile Dental.   Everyone in the office is very friendly. Definitely going back!

Steve N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m in the middle stages of a tooth implant with them, and have to say that they’re just awesome. Their customer service is fantastic – always making sure they minimize any pain and explaining each step in detail. More so, they take the time to make sure everything is right. When I went the first time, there was only one seat left in the waiting area, so I thought I made a bad decision. But I never felt rushed or part of some assembly line. I still hate going to the dentist, but they mitigate a lot of the anguish. Thanks, guys!

Monah C. from La Mirada, CA (Source: Yelp)


I drive all the way from Fullerton to see Dr Kim. He is so honest about what needs to be done vs what  “can” be done through insurance. Prior to my visit with him, I went to a local dentist steps away from home. They wanted me to redo a crown that was completely fine (but my insurance would cover it this year) and suggested veneers over bonding which is more expensive and invasive (they would have to shave down my teeth). My natural inclination led me back to Dr Kim’s office for his honest recommendations. Having that honest feedback is a peace of mind always and will drive the distance for that. In that sitting,  I got bonding done on some chipped teeth and to close up some gaps. I am extremely happy with his job! He first bonded one tooth 10 years ago and it has stayed intact until now.  I would completely recommend him for all your dental needs! He also opens on some Saturdays which is very convenient for people that have to work weekdays

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


My visit to Dr. Kim’s office is one of the best dentist experiences I’ve had. Let me tell you .. I HATE GOING IN TO GO SEE A DENTIST.   I was getting  my teeth cleaned and got the Zoom procedure. 1. it didn’t have that dentist office smell when I walked in.  It was clean.  I didn’t get too nervous about the visit as soon as I walked in because I didn’t have to smell that nasty dentist office smell.  2. The staff was very kind and very attentive.  They would chit chat with you and also explain each step of the procedure.  I told them my teeth were getting a little sensitive during the Zoom procedure. After I told them that, someone would come in every 5 minutes and make sure I am doing ok.  I really appreciated it. 3. Watching TV while getting my teeth done.  Time flew by because I was watching tv. For the first time in my life, I didn’t hate my dentist or hate the visit.  If you don’t like going to the dentist, you should definitely visit Dr. Kim.. Your visit will be a breeze

Susie A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My mom has been going to Dr. Kim for about three years now. She most often goes for the cleanings. And as I am a very lazy girl whose teeth hygiene is probably quite questionable, my mom had to drag me out to get these incredible cleanings she has always talked about. Needless to say, I was more than bummed out to wait in the (most likely) sterile dentist office, reeking of plaque cleaner, or whatever they use to wipe out the smell of rotting teeth. But thank God it wasn’t like that at Dr. Kim’s. It was nicely lit, even accommodating to my god-awfully sore eyes that never get enough light. Dr. Kim promptly attended my mother, and once she was done, UN-threateningly beckoned towards his office. And indeed, the service was quite impeccable. Dr. Kim scrubbed, massaged, coaxed, finagled every little plaquey-calculus out of my teeth like a damn professional. And I bet he was even smiling underneath his mask. What a nice man

Luiza N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


First Impression Review: Excellent Practice! I called them because our regular dentists have gotten very busy with clients and couldn’t schedule both of our kids on the same day within the next week before school starts back up again.  I called yesterday and Alice set both of them up for cleanings TODAY! When we arrived, office staff was helpful and polite. Paperwork was a breeze, and the assistants got both kids done with x-rays quickly and painlessly and ready for a cleaning with Dr. Kim. Dr. Kim has an affable personality and is at ease with kid patients and their parents. He allowed me to stay in the room and explained/showed all of us any areas that they need to improve on, while also giving kudos for proper oral hygiene elsewhere. We were  done and out within the hour and they even validated our garage parking. The only downgrade that I could see from our old office is that the building interior is a little run-down looking and needs some updating and TLC. Also, the elevators were a little confusing as we couldn’t find the  “basement” level button in any of the elevators we tried when we were trying to get back to the car. Over all, not bad and I will not knock down any stars from the practice for building issues. Thank you Dr. Kim and staff! We will be back!

Heidi H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to 6 different dentists over my lifetime and have to say this is truly the best one. Even as an adult, I dread going to the dentist and having my cheeks/mouth stretched out, x-rays done and teeth being drilled/cleaned, etc. The hygienists are very kind and gentle when doing a regular teeth cleaning. I have had bonding done to make my smile more square and uniform which has turned out great! I also received insight from the Doctor on why my teeth are so sensitive. I always thought it was from Crest Whitestrips from 8 years ago, but was enlightened it is due to my unconsciousness (now conscious) clenching when I feel stressed or anxious. I was fitted for a mouth guard and will be picking it up this week. I used to live in Miracle Mile, but moved to North Hollywood in August of 2018 and commute into the city for my appointments because this dentist office is well worth it!!

Jocelyn M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Haven’t been to the dentist in 2.5 years.  Had a horrific experience with a dentist from Yelp (see previous review).  Didn’t mention that the previous dentist blackmailed my employer to take the review down or else he would shut down his business with fake reviews.  So…I’m a bit distrustful. I know I needed a cleaning and found Dr. Kim.  It was $100 for the cleaning special and I tried it.  I’m so, so glad I did. It was a great cleaning (Kim did the cleaning), easy x-rays, and very honest, clear info from Dr. Kim (Kim and Dr. Kim are two different people).  The receptionists were nice.  I could NOT have asked for a better experience.  Highly recommended (especially if you’ve been burned by Yelp)

John J. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to approximately 7 or 8 dentists in my life, and Dr. Kim beats them all by a wide margin. While I am not trained in dentistry, it’s pretty obvious that his skills are top notch.  He was able to do things with my teeth that other dentist told me were impossible.  He is very aware of, and a great manager of, pain. He is also much more honest than any other dentist I met. He has never pushed me in the direction of more expensive options, in fact, he has recommended cheaper options when they made more sense for me. I’ve spent a long time with Dr. Kim over the past few months as he has replaced a bunch of dental work that was botched up in a Central American medical tourism trip gone wrong.  I am very happy with everything. And if that wasn’t enough, he’s a really likable guy, and his staff is about as friendly as they come.  Dr.  Kim, I love you, man

T. W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Several years ago I needed a dentist and was helping for one around the Wilshire area. I liked what I read about Dr Kim and my whole family has been coming to him for 8 years plus …….. last Friday I went in for front upper tooth extraction something I had put off for a very long time because I didn’t know what would happen after the extraction and the gap. I teach and see patients myself in my profession so I was so concerned. Dr Kim took his time a few weeks ago to explain the process and assured me that he will put a temporary tooth so I don’t have a gap. He was meticulous and gentle and took his time. So was his assistant Laly. Thank you both. I appreciate and I am looking forward to the healing process and the final product. I highly recommend this office for your dental needs. Alyson and Mayda at the front are great too . As well as the hygienist and the remaining staff. Dr Kim and Laly also have suggestions for food places in the area lol

Michael M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to a few dentists all over LA in the 9 years I’ve lived here, and Dr. Kim is my favorite so far.  He’s professional, nice, and knows his craft very well. If you go to another dentist who recommends doing a lot of work, I’d at the very least go in to Dr. Kim to get a second opinion. Often I’ve gone to him only to be told that I don’t require the expensive work to be done after all. On top of that his front desk and billing people are all nice, courteous, and have their act together with no confusion or unpleasant surprises on the bills. They’ve also gone out of their way to tell me what procedures will cost after insurance in order to decide whether or not to go through with them

Denis W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Kim for about 8 years, after a tooth cracked a bit from grinding. I’ve had some fillings and a crown since then. I haven’t had any problems with the work he’s done. No issues with pain, either. I feel confident that I have a knowledgeable and experienced dentist. The staff is great. Susan does a great job cleaning my teeth and advising me how keep them healthy. Mina just took my x-rays, and was very conscientious and caring about the discomfort of those x-ray things that you have to hold in your mouth. Angela sets up the appointments and takes the payments. She’s very sweet, professional and helpful

Gene H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I only come here for routine cleaning by Kim (not Dr. Kim, but Kim the hygienist). No experience w/ orthodontic practice here (I see Dr. Luis Martines for that, who’s also awesome). Kim’s the only hygienist in LA I’ve faced that does not cause any pain; the only pain I sometimes feel is from my teeth sensitivity which isn’t her fault (and even that she’s careful about). She’s patient and thorough when she cleans, definitely has those calm, steady hands not even a lot of dentists have. She’s also pretty down-to-earth (and can be quite funny). She’ll be real with you as a hygienist but also as a person, so my routine visit every four months is always a good experience. After the cleaning, Dr. Kim will do a brief follow-up check. He provides some good tips for daily oral care. He’s also a nice guy, but I personally can’t chime in on his skills. After everything’s done, you’ll get a goodie bag (toothbrush, etc.) from the front desk. Make sure to validate your parking ticket before heading down to the parking lot (entrance is from Cochran). Bottom line, if you’re looking for a good hygienist, Kim’s the best there is. Just don’t overbook her that I can’t see her anymore

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


I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Kim and his staff. After moving to LA, I was afraid to leave my trusted, long-time dentist in Riverside and find a new one in LA that would not lie to me. It is very difficult to find a dentist that is more concerned about his patients than making money. So after putting off the dentist for a long time, I finally looked through Yelp for days before I carefully chose Dr. Kim. I have Yelp to thank for saving my dental life. I have never been treated so well at a dental office before Dr. Kim’s. I felt as if I were the only dental patient in the world. The lady that did my X-rays was so careful and gentle that I almost liked taking the X-rays. (Dental X-rays are something I’ve always hated!). The hygienist also took her work very seriously. She took her time cleaning my teeth and answered all of my questions carefully. And Dr. Kim was the cherry on top of my visit. He made me feel very comfortable and made sure all of my questions/concerns were answered. To top it all off, no one lied to me about my teeth or sold me things I didn’t need. After years of not visiting a dentist, I just had one small cavity that needed filling. You can’t beat that experience! I am so sad that with my new job, I no longer have PPO insurance. I am forced to find a temporary HMO dentist until I get a new job that offers PPO. I will surely go back to Dr. Kim’s as soon as I do!

Many thanks to Dr. Kim and his delightful staff for a completely professional experience. I was looking for an affordable new dentist in my neighborhood, for routine cleaning and x-rays, and was pleased with how friendly, cordial and helpful everyone in the office was. The service was top-notch; the cleaning, examination, and x-rays (18!) were thorough; and Dr. Kim patiently and authoritatively advised me of future conditions to be on the lookout for. He was generous with his time and attention and knowledge. The office is clean and modern and conveniently located. The wait was not long. The fees are reasonable. I’ll be back!

I have to say that this place by far is the best dental office I have been to.  I called them on a Friday morning, and they fit me in that same day.  I have gone to a lot of shady dentist in my past.  This place is such an honest place.  They do not try to oversell you on any service.  I was expecting to pay a lot of money thinking I had to do a deep clean.  But to my surprise, I didn’t need it, and my insurance covered everything for my X-rays and cleaning.  The Doctors here are so professional and very nice.  They even fit my mother in while I was getting my teeth cleaned.  The front staff also is awesome.  They are very friendly and kind.  I look forward to getting my teeth cleaned again here.  I normally do not write reviews unless it is a bad place.  But having such a great experience here I had to give them props.  They also are very up to date on the cleaning devices, and also have personal tvs to watch with directv while getting your teeth cleaned.  And last, but not least, the doctors are so good, that it doesn’t even hurt while they are cleaning your teeth. Thanks again, for helping me get my teeth cleaned, and I hope this helps someone who is looking for a great place to go get there teeth worked on. This place is so good, my mother who lives in Houston, has decided to make this her Dentist from now on.  She will be flying to Los Angeles to get her teeth worked on every 6 months. You guys Rock!!
