Dr. Kim and his team provided a very personable experience from when I first entered the office to when I left. I felt well cared for during my visit. Dr. Kim addressed my questions thoroughly and educated me about teeth and oral hygiene. The level and quality of care I received was excellent because of his wealth of knowledge about oral health. He was able to quickly identify my problems as well as their most effective solutions.

This dentistry is great! I’m going to start by saying that going to the dentist is at the bottom of my favorites list. However, after a close panic attack and freak out years ago attempting to remove my wisdom teeth, it’s finally out! (Well, one side so far) Which is a total milestone in itself! I felt so comfortable with all of the friendly staff and doctors. Dr. HKim literally took 10 minutes or less removing both wisdom teeth, I was so surprised. She was careful and made sure my mouth was completely numb before removing them. She also did my crown and she was so thorough; I had such a good experience. Both Caesar and Sandy were very nice and informative. Dr. Kim is very professional and soft spoken. My entire experience overall was amazing and I’m now actually looking forward to removing my other two wisdom teeth. As far as front desk goes, I’m always able to get an appointment that works with my schedule. I receive reminder text messages twice, which I prefer over calls. I’m not too knowledgeable with my dental insurance but Kate was able to talk me through it and get what I needed done. NOTE: Getting health related work done isn’t cheap, with and without insurance sometimes!

I have been coming here for over 40 years even before they took over this establisment from my previous dentist. My whole family comes here. They are very friendly, have all theup to date equipment and can do anything from a cleaning to pulling your wisdom teeth. I have recommeded alot of my friends here and never had a bad ordeal. Love Dr. Kim and all his staff.

I’m obsessed with having my teeth clean and making sure my teeth are in tip top shape. I’ve been to many dentist office prior to being Dr. Kim’s loyal client for over 10 years now and he’s absolutely amazing. He listens, detailed oriented, does not up charge you or recommend procedures that is not needed. I expressed to Dr. Kim regarding the look I want to achieve with my smile, he listens and get me to where I need to be to achieve the perfect smile with my natural teeth. I can go on and on about how great he is! Give him a try and you won’t be disappointed. Oh one major factor is you’re seen on time at your appointment time! This is a big plus to be since my regular life schedule is always tight on time. The staff is also amazing and a pleasure to interact with!

Top notch service – which you don’t find very often. This place is pain free and fee free. I have great insurance and never had to pay for cleanings. They are very accommodating to my schedule and get me in and out. I never had any issues in my many years as a patient. Dr. Kim does excellent work and has an amazing team behind him. Dr. Kim is about patient care first and foremost, so I trust his recommendations. I would recommend this place to any and everyone. There is NO WAY they will rip you off! Sorry to those who have crappy coverage- it’s your insurance that dictates the charges. In other words, you pay because your insurance says to. I learned this from the knowledgeable staffs there and confirmed with my insurance company. So I understand it very well -know your facts and be informed. Bottom line -super clean facility, up to date equipment, nice and friendly staff, pain free dentistry, hygienist is clean and thorough. The perfect place for me.

I recently had a crown at this clinic. I’ve seen this doc since 2008 and he never was wrong. is very conservative in making decisions. I took my friend and she felt very comfortable as well cause was really on patients’ side. The best part is needle injection! I did not feel any pain and got numb…..zzzzzzz. I will not miss my recall appointment with him!!!

I don’t mean to ramble, but I’d like to explain to my experience a little for context. I’ve been going to South Philly Dental as my dentist for about a year and a half. My first procedure was an implant I was putting off until I could no longer. I was very satisfied with that experience. But what I really want to mention, is that a few months ago I sustained a traumatic brain injury in a work related accident and have still not recovered. It has been a nightmare finding the right medical professionals, and have been to countless appointments, and various specialist. Due to my injury my brain is easily overstimulated, especially by noise and will trigger a panic attack that often leaves me weakened to the point of needing bed rest for the rest of the day, with little strength to function. Dr. Kim and the staff at South Philly Dental, where nothing but considerate, patient, and understanding towards my condition – more so of any medical establishment I have visited since my accident – even more than the offices that “specialize” in TBI! Not surprisingly I became overstimulated from my procedure today (it really doesn’t take much) but the staff made me as comfortable as possible, going so far as giving me a quiet place to rest, and a snack to help me recover. These guys are great and I will happily recommend them to anyone.

Everyone in the office is incredibly nice. For a cleaning, Dr. Kim comes in to check your teeth and then the hygienist cleans them. She was very thorough and gentle and did a great job and both of them had good advice to share. The cost for cleaning is quite reasonable. When we first came, my husband needed a root canal and a crown. The work was completed carefully and quickly and he hasn’t had any issues since! It’s a great practice and since we’ve moved around a bit, we’ve seen a few!

I don’t ever write reviews but I have to about this place! I am terrified of the dentist and I actually can’t wait to go back to this place. They were the nicest group of people and made me feel so welcomed and not scared at all. They took their time with me and explained everything they were doing and made me feel so comfortable. I will be recommending them to everyone I know!

First off, let me stress how much I loathe going to the dentist. My ideal dentist visit would be one where I happily pay a little more money, am put under, then let the dentist go to town. However, since that’s not the world we live in, I would highly recommend this dentistry. I have been twice (one for fillings and one for an extraction). Both times, Dr. Kim was so professional, kind, listened to your concerns, and thankfully used enough Novocain to let me not feel a single thing. While I would never want to go to the dentist again in my life (really a good motivator for good dental hygiene), this is the place to go for great work.

BrownSuga H. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I love this establishment. I have not had any problems. The staff are friendly most times. But I absolutely love the hygienist! (Bad with names-Tanya I believe) Either way She rocks out! I love her personality and her memory is great as well!!! She is very personable. Dr. Kim rocks as well. Very professional yet humorous. I love coming here. They are very good at reminding you of your appointment. I love that as well! Overall, it’s a great atmosphere to get your teeth cleaned. Only downside as with most doctors office is the temperature but overall great experience! I definitely recommend South Philly Dental.

Béatrice B. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I had dental work done by Dr. Byounggon Kim and he’s excellent as well as very knowledgeable, personable and kind, and the fees are super reasonable!! I had some questions regarding the crown work he did, and he answered them professionally and patiently and solved any issues!! His staff is just adorable, from the greeting ladies, Siena and Kate, to the hygienists Jen & Stephanie, and he offers discounted plans for dental care that are extremely affordable!! Altogether THUMBS UP to South Philly Dental and Dr. Kim and his staff, thank you guys, great job!! 🙂

South Philly Dental is terrific ! Dr Kim is an excellent dentist & very personable as well. He explains things- smiles, (not grumpy like many dentists )….& the dental hygienist who cleaned my teeth was gentle & did a great job. The office is immaculately clean !— And–the office staff is soo very nice & efficient (always kind & helpful)- & again, Dr. Kim is an excellent dentist.! Going to the dentist is not exactly a pleasant experience- but, coming to South Philly dental will make it less stressful.- but an excellent dentist & an excellent staff makes this place exceptional ! I highly recommend South Philly Dental to anyone- I have been to many dentists over the years & you will not find many places like this- If you need a dentist now- Dr. Kim & South Philly Dental is the place to go.–! Five stars all the way !

Clean, professional, friendly, and painless dentistry. I lived in fear of the dentist for many years and this place has changed my view. Dr. Kim is personable and cares about his work. Cesar is a great receptionist and is on top of everything. And the dental hygienists are thorough and understanding. An awesome environment all around.

Vincent Z. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Stephanie the hygienist is awesome. Cleans my teeth fast and nearly pain free. I seen another review of someone complaining of pain. I don’t think they know poor dental hygiene and previous poor cleanings would cause the pain. People please get your teeth cleaned often, then future visits won’t hurt. The more junk you have built-up on your teeth the more they will need to clean off.

I’ve been a patient at the South Philly Dental for over 6 years and I love it. The staff are friendly and helpful. The office was renovated into a modern update office, not like the old dentist office I went to. I went to this office with a problem because my previous dentist could not figure out what was wrong with me. Dr. Kim, who was my treating dentist at the new office, he told me that have a small cavity and is on the verge on having another cavity so I needed to floss more often. Dr. Kim did my fillings and told me how to take care of my teeth. I flossed as recommended and guess what? The tooth that was on the verge on of decay went away. I went for my routine cleaning and exam every 6 months as recommended. I also recommended my family to come here because the office offers a plan for patient who does not have dental insurance. $150 for 2 cleaning, all x-rays and exam, then gives you discount on everything else, I think that’s a great deal. Every time I referred my somebody here, I would receive $20 credit which I love because these credit will pay for my future treatment such as my in between cleaning. I always leave the office feeling fresh and clean in my mouth so I would recommend everybody to go there and hope you are satisfied as I am.

My experience here has been wonderful. The doctors and staffs are excellent! I came in as an emergency patient, I hadn’t been to the dentist for over 5 years so I was extremely nervous. The doctor was exceptional, he made time for me to complete an emergency root canal. It was painless from start to finish! Now, I come here for my routine visits (every 6 months visit) so if anything was wrong it would be taken care of right away. My family and friends all come here now and they love it.

Just had the most satisfying dental care experience at South Philly Dental. It has been a while since I had my last dental check up and cleaning due to a couple reasons, mostly slacking (who hasn’t, right?). At 11:30am today, as I was thinking about how I need to take care of body and calling to schedule medial appointments, I realized I needed a dental care too. Not knowing where to go, I googled for an office in South Philadelphia. A few came up. As I read through some offices, South Philly Dental office stood out. When I called, I didn’t think I could get an appointment within the same day. To my surprise, I was scheduled for cleaning and consultation at 1:45pm. Came in and was greeted by a pleasantly young gentleman, and within minutes I was taken by nice dental hygienist, Jane, who took care of me thoroughly. The Dentist was very nice too. The office is warm, cleaned, beautifully designed and decorated. Anyone needed a dental care, check this office out. Out best and most beautiful appearance is our smile. Having healthy teeth definitely helps make our smile even more beautiful. So why not taking 30 minutes every six months to have professional service while continue to clean and floss our teeth so they stay healthy. If our work cover dental plans why not using them? If not, Philadelphia Public Health Centers offer dental care. Let’s take care of our mind, body (including teeth) and spirits so we can live a healthy life.
