Dr. Kim and his whole team create an amazingly relaxing experience. This is coming from a complete dental fears patient. From the first phone call through my second crown appointment it’s been the best dental experience I’ve had in memory. Dr. Kim let’s you know what to expect at every turn and is incredibly kind and gentle. I highly recommend this practice and I have recommended it to many! Thanks Dr. Kim and wonder team

I keep going to Smiles on Madison because the receptionist are amazing. It takes basically nothing for them to remember you and your voice forever, and it is so sweet. I have been going here for many years and I have seen many different dental hygienist with only one issue from a hygienist who didn’t work there and was just covering there because of an emergency. They put thorough notes in your file that help you down the road, for example I am someone who gags a lot so they know to be careful with x rays and such without me saying anything.

I recently had an appointment with the Dental Hygentist, Eileen, at Smiles on Madison. I have been to several dentist offices in my years, and I must say, I was very impressed. My teeth never looked or felt so clean. She took the time to properly educate me on how to floss and brush more effectively and efficently without making me feel inadequate. Shockingly, i was doing it all wrong. She didnt push any products forceably. (That was a big plus) Dr Kim was through and made sure to answer all my questions. It was a great decision to come to the folks here at Smiles on Madison. I would recommend them to anyone looking for excellent dental services. As a side note I have taken Eileen’s advice and
purchased a Sonicare toothbrush and water flosser. I definitely have noticed a difference than in conventional brushing and flossing. What a great investment. Thank you Smiles on Madison!

★★★★★

I have been going to Smiles on Madison for a year now and have continued to receive thorough and efficient care. The staff is kind and helpful, and they have never made me feel forced into treatment. Before going to Smiles on Madison, I hadn’t been to the dentist in 5 years. They didn’t make me feel judged and were able to accommodate my needs. I had three cavities filled and they were well done and painless. My smile is brighter because of them. I would recommend Smiles on Madison to my family and friends!

I am a new patient to Smiles on Madison. It had been a really long time since I had a teeth cleaning and everyone was really helpful and nice. There wasn’t any pain when they cleaned my teeth (had bad experiences with pain from basic cleaning in the past). I also felt comfortable with all the extra protection they had implemented for COVID. I would definitely recommend this place.

★★★★★

I had been a patient of this dental clinic for over a year meeting a new dentist at every single visit, but since Dr. Kim purchased the practice in March of 2017, the level of service and consistency of personnel has risen to a level of excellence.  It makes such a difference when the owner is actually the dentist on the premises.  Dr. Kim (the owner, a very smart and accomplished fellow), the staff, the clinic manager, and the hygienists are very welcoming, are kind, and definitely know what they’re doing.  I am so happy that this dental office opened in my neighborhood!!!

I met Dr. Kim when I had a dental emergency. He was accommodating, professional, friendly and kind. it’s a clean office too, ever been to one that wasn’t? (i have).All services were explained along with other options. I”ve never felt “forced” into any decision about any services. I have recommended him and his staff, whom I really like, to several friends. So yes…. check them out.

Smiles on Madison was able to squeeze me in today when I woke up with unbearable tooth pain. I don’t have dental insurance, so they were able to give me a quote over the phone. Once I got in, reception, the dental assistant, and Dr. Kim were all very kind and efficient – I was in and out in record time! Dr. Kim gave me all of my options for what we can do and reception wrote up my quotes for further care. I look forward to returning to Smiles on Madison for the rest of my dentistry needs!

★★★★★

I took my elderly mother in for a cleaning. They were the BEST! They were so gentle and patient with my Mom. They cleaned her teeth first with a gentle tooth brush and gauze, so no constant flow of water and spitting (hard on the elderly I am told) also they kipped the pumice sanding, without being asked, as that would be hard on her also. thank you!

★★★★★

I have been going to Smiles on Madison for almost 7 years. Always a good experience, easy to work with my insurance, etc. But today they really outdid themselves! My toddler fell and clearly loosened his front teeth. I was a wreck, especially with this happening in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Kim answered my emergency call immediately and was able to meet me at the office in an hour. He was so kind to this very panicked mom and really great and gentle with my son. He also reached out to a pediatric dentist colleague to review our xrays. We have a plan of action and my son’s teeth are going to be okay. I could not be more grateful. They will have my business for life!

★★★★★

I had some dental work done in Oregon and it was done poorly. At Smiles On Madison I was met with great honesty. Precision is important in the dental field and these docs know their stuff. It is always clean in the office, exam rooms, and bathroom. The office works with you if you need payment arangements and don’t have insurance. Every one is knowledgable and polite. Most importantly, the work they do is solid and perfect. Thanks Smiles!

Update 7/24/20 “During the Apocalypse” Needed a quick checkup for possible cavity/root canal…no waiting, very safe, lots of “safe distance” and best practices temp check, place I-glass. Though I have postponed my routine cleaning-now that I’ve been inside, will definitely schedule – they’re being very careful. Same excellent service, as always! —-Great service, friendly staff – no hassle. Our whole family (wife, daughter and son) and myself have been very happy with our experience. We have been patients for 2+ yrs and had multiple visits. Scheduling is always very easy (they usually have weekend hours, too) and send reminders (very helpful). Dr. Kim and Evelyn are great and very thorough. We’ve also had more involved procedures: cavities, root canal (ouch) and all very professional and easy. They are also very fair with billing. Unlike another reviewer, they have always worked “with’ my insurance to ensure best outcome for patient.

★★★★★

I was recommended to go to Dr. Kim from a close friend of mine and I had an extremely pleasant experience at Smiles On Madison! I have not had the best experience with dentists in my early years, so I absolutely dread going for even check-ups. I saw something that looked like a cavity and I was super nervous to go get it checked, but also wanted to get rid of it before I would require a bigger procedure, so went in for my annual check-up + potential cavity fill. I especially do not enjoy first patient visits, because the initial check-up took TWO hours at another dental office and it got me exhausted. But to my surprise, my initial x-rays and checks were finished within one hour (probably less). And even better, what I thought was cavity was just staining from a chipped filling and I was told that I didn’t need to worry about it unless it was really bothering me. Dr. Kim was amazing and the receptionists were super friendly as well.

Honestly the best experience I’ve had at a dental office. I first moved to Seattle late September, and I had my filling fall out in October. I hadn’t bothered to look for a dentist because I was lazy and stupid, and I ended up paying for it big time by having my right back molar hurt like hell in late December. I was in a lot of pain, both physical and mental, as I was looking up dentists, trying to find one that would take in and see a new patient so close to the holiday season. Smiles on Madison was the first place that picked up my call and had an actual person answer (and not the answering machine), took my insurance, and had an opening the next day. I showed up the next day, filled out some brief paperwork, and Dr. Kim saw me around five minutes after. He was super patient and kind with me, and gave me a quick emergency filling since I had to leave town the following day and was unable to stay to get the possible root canal I needed. The filling lasted for around two weeks, and saved me from a lot of unnecessary pain before I was able to get the root canal out of town. When I came back, Dr. Kim was able to order the crown for me, and a few weeks later, Dr. Chua was able to put the crown on and did a full set of dental exams. Dr. Kim, Dr. Chua, and the assistant were all great, and made sure I felt comfortable the whole way, and talked me through every step to make sure I knew what was going on. If I was in any sort of pain, they didn’t hesitate to numb me some more and I barely felt anything. The receptionist was also prompt with billing my insurance and explained every line of my receipt to me and made sure I wasn’t getting charged for things I didn’t pay for. I’m definitely going to keep going back and feel safe knowing that my teeth are in their capable hands. Also, my new crown is awesome, feels great, and I’m so happy I can eat again on the right side of my teeth. 😛

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kim’s for almost 20 years. I have tried dentists closer to my home and office but have never found even close of a comparison. Not only is he professional and friendly, he is transparent about cost and efficacy and is fabulously goofy. All this and the others who work there are fabulous. Hope you try out this amazing cure for dental phobia!

Sally M. from Lynnwood, WA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I’ve been going to the same dentist since I was a toddler and he has recently retired, so when I decided to go to Smiles on Madison I was worried. As soon as I walked in the door I was happily greeted. All the staff was informative and through. They talked to me about options and didn’t make me feel pressured about doing any procedures like I’ve heard other places do. I would suggest Smiles on Madison to anyone who is looking for great dental care.

Rob M. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Evelyn and Dr. Kim are great. I have been a patient for several years and the whole team makes dental care very easy and stress free. Scheduling is easy (often Saturday appointments work), they send confirmation texts or calls and once the visit is over they’re very helpful with insurance and billing. I have also used Smiles for Root Canal and even that awful procedure was pretty easy. They are pros and glad they’re so convenient.

Joe Kim has been my dentist for 12 years. This is the third location he has worked at in that time. It’s a step up for him because he owns the practice. I’m happy about that because he is the best dentist I’ve ever had, and I refuse to go to anyone else. His hygienist Ilene moved here also and I really appreciate that. She has been cleaning my teeth for several years and is the best. You can be sure of getting top quality, knowledgeable care at this office.

★★★★★

I’ve been going to Smiles on Madison for over a year now and Dr. Kim and the Smiles team are just AMAZING! They are all so talented, professional and genuinely care about what they do. Dr. Kim is also by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. He was able to catch several dental isses that no other dentist had in the past – saving me from having to do major dental work. On top of that, I’ve had to go in during COVID19 a few times recently and felt very safe with all of the extra precautions they’ve put in place to keep everyone safe. I can’t recommend Smiles on Madison enough!

Kristi M. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

The environment is nice, the staff is very helpful and friendly. They are understanding about being anxious and afraid, and work to put your mind at ease. Dr. Joseph Kim and his team are the best ! I used to see him at his other office at Seneca Dental. It’s much better now that he has his own practice here at Smiles on Madison. He has turned this place around. I would follow him anywhere. He’s the most awesome dentist I’ve ever had !!!

★★★★★

The folks at Smiles at Madison are wonderful. Dr Joe Kim, who originally was with Seneca Dental, has an excellent staff and office. The reception area offers coffee by means of a Keurig which had a variety of coffee selections. The front desk staff greeted me right away in a warm pleasant manner which is one of my pet peeves. The hygentist was through, yet gentle. She made sure I was comfortable and that I was not in any pain. Huge plus! I definitely would recommend Smiles on Madison to anyone looking for a new dental office.

Under the new ownership of Dr. Joe Kim, Smiles On Madison is one of the BEST practices in the area. This is your dentist! I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for 12 or 13 years and followed him to his new location when he bought this business. Even though I’ve now lived in Federal Way for several years, I’ve stayed with him. That should testify to my trust, commitment, and complete satisfaction in him and his staff, who also followed him to Smiles On Madison. Sensitive to patient needs, he and his staff provide outstanding competent, compassionate care using state-of-the-art equipment. They take a gentle approach to treatment, so you always feel at ease. Moreover, enough cannot be said about Dr. Kim’s personal and professional integrity, honesty, and ethics. In a time when some dentists push costly procedures that are lucrative but unnecessary, Dr. Kim is irreprehensible. Your care plan options are thorough but left up to you to decide without any pressure. And one final thing: When you need him, he will be there, even if it’s at his own personal sacrifice. There has been history with me when he has bent over backwards to meet me for necessary dental care. Patient health is his number one priority. No wonder I have stayed with him for so many years. You will, too.

Dr. Kim, Dr. Cha, and including all the Dental Staff are kind, flexible, helpfull! I really appreciate getting my teeth clean here! In addition, getting invisalign and other dental treatment was simple, useful, and thoughtful. I feel more great about my oral health thanks to the help of the team at Smiles on Madison. I would recommend getting dental care service here!

I’ve been going to Smiles on Madison for almost 7 years. They’ve always been good but today they were amazing! My toddler fell and hit his front teeth. It was a scary experience in general but even worse in a pandemic! I was so grateful that Dr. Kim not only answered my emergency call but met us at the office in an hour! He was so kind to me and great with my son. We have a good plan of action and it looks like my son’s teeth will be okay. They have my business for life!

★★★★★

Dr. Kim and staff are professional and care about your concerns and comfort. Dr. Kim is a wonderful dentist; he explains his impression, treatment options and has a nice interpersonal style. And he is a dentist that wants to get to know you and takes his time. Being in the healthcare field, I appreciate being informed of why a or b is being recommended and very pleased he has purchased this practice. I also have to add that the dental hygienist performed an oral cancer exam and thorough – checking my soft palate, tongue, gums.

Lindsay W. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

So far I have had a great experience here with the dentists, hygienists & receptionists. They were able to use most of the x-Rays from my last dentist because they were within a year, saving me money. They were friendly, the cleaning was great and the hygienist was very informative. They gave me a quote ahead of time so I would know about how much to expect to spend, and answered all my questions kindly. My filling has been a little painful after so I went in to have it checked it out and the dentist saw me, re-took an X-ray to make sure it was fully sealed, and they didn’t charge me for the visit. I really appreciate the care and helpfulness that smiles on Madison offers their patients. Will keep coming back!

★★★★★

We’ve been going here since this location opened (so a couple of years and old owners vs new owners). Yes, there was a bit of a rough transition before Dr Kim took over–but since then, everything is back it being great. The staff is very nice, the dental hygienists are great (and really nice when you have sensitive teeth like I do), and Dr Kim is great too. My husband has his wisdom teeth pulled there, and we’ve both had cavities filled and all experiences have been positive. They don’t try to upsell you on unnecessary work and are very understanding. Highly recommend them.

If you are looking for a dentist you cannot get any better than Smiles on Madison. After having been through a TERRIBLE time at my last dentist I was more than leery of going somewhere new. With my insurance I have limited provider options so decided to try them. I am SO glad I did. Everyone in this office is incredibly nice, knowledgeable, professional and great at what they do from booking and billing to cleanings and major dental work. They really care about their patients and want to make sure that you are happy. They will never recommend procedures you don’t need and the cost and billing are up front and honest. There are never any surprises, except when I constantly forget my appointment and get the curtsey reminder call the day before. Going to the dentist has never been so fun.

I love Smiles on Madison! Everyone is very friendly and professional. They are very informative and keep me updated with what needs to be done with my upcoming appointments. They easily work around my schedule and are always able to schedule my next appointment before I leave the office. Anna, one of the dental hygienists is so friendly and does great work! Thank you, Smiles on Madison for encouraging me and helping me to take great care of my oral hygiene!

No one really loves going to the dentist, especially me, but I’ve had a lot of overdue work done in the past few months and my experience here has been great. They are always friendly and courteous, very up front and candid about all financial and insurance information,and they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable through the process which shows they care. They even followed up with a phone call to see how I was feeling after a root canal! I’d recommend them to anyone looking around for a new dentist.

Smiles on Madison was a terrific dental office! I recently moved back to Seattle and found Smiles through my insurance provider. Originally, I chose Smiles because the office is very conveniently located for me, right on Madison and in the same new building complex as Safeway. But the exceptional care is what will keep me coming back. Appointment set up was quick, easy, and the front desk staff were very friendly. They even gave me the option to e-mail new patient documentation to fill out ahead of time so I could just turn it in right when I showed up. This could be a great time saver for anyone with a long health history. The office itself is brand new, very nicely lit, clean and orderly, but with a surprisingly warm and comforting quality to it. I asked the staff, and apparently they actively strive for that ambiance by choosing specific color tones, furniture etc. Whatever they did, it worked and the environment was very calming. All the staff was fantastic and friendly from the front desk, to the Dental Assistants, Hygienists, and Dentists. They were professional and adept at their jobs, and did a wonderful job of describing what my dental health status was and enthusiastically answering any questions I had. I had an efficient cleaning in which a few cavities were found, but there was no judgment what-so-ever about this or my semi-poor flossing history. I never felt ashamed, they simply explained what I could do better in a polite and understanding manner. My return visit to fill the cavities was an equally positive experience. I additionally returned for a teeth whitening and was again greeted with a flawless experience. All in all, after three visits with excellent care each time, I will definitely be returning to Smiles on Madison.

Over all the practice is professional and friendly. The staff is truest friendly and happy which makes the experience as comfortable as possible. I love that they invest in new technology and the evolution of dental practices without feeling as if you were paying for someone’s third vacation home. The office is always clean ( I must have for dental care!) bright and welcoming. Dr. Kim is personable and accommodating, willing to discuss options for dental care. Highly recommend smiles On Madison to anyone.

I have avoided the dentist the last year or so due to a horrible experience at another office. I started having tooth issues and knew I needed to come in. I decided to pick a place close by that had good reviews and landed on this office. The staff is amazing and very knowledgeable. The front desk was able to answer a lot of my questions about my coverage and what costs I would incur. The entire team came up with a treatment plan to get my smile where I want it without breaking the bank. If you are looking for a dentist give them a call. You won’t be disappointed!

Dr. Joe Kim and his staffs are caring and amazing to work with. I have recently moved to Seattle and I am so glad that I have found Smiles on Madison. He takes time to interact with patients and explains what the procedures are and why they are needed. He tries his best to give options to his patients and is not pushy on anything. I highly recommend Dr. Joe Kim and his amazing staff!
