Going to Dentist Steve Kim has been a pleasant experience. When u walk in the staff is super friendly and knows each persons by name. They make personal connections and make each visit easy. It’s never crowded and I usually get in n out. The hygienist is very gentle and never rough when it comes to dealing with your teeth. They give away free dental care packages with tooth paste, tooth brush and floss, which shows they care about the state of everyone that walks in. Overall Dentist Steve Kim is a wonderful office that I’d recommend to anyone.

Just had my new patient appointment at Dr. Kim’s office and was treated wonderfully by he and his staff. Evelyn, Sue, Monica and Marina were very sweet and answered all of my questions regarding my treatment plan and finance options. I have scheduled all necessary appointments for treatment moving forward and look forward to making this my new dental office.

I love this dentist office! Everyone is super nice & friendly. They make sure you are comfortable & are patient. I have gotten root canal, cap, & many fillings – they are even good at giving the numbing shot, I never feel it!! Highly recommendable

Joelle T. from Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I do not like to write reviews but compelled to tell the Torrance community how lucky for me to have found Dr Steve Kim as my only and permanent dentist. The office is well-kept, clean, cozy and inviting, one always gets greeted warmly walking in. Front office staff are courteous, helpful, and informative. My favorite hygienist-Jackie-is a sweetheart! She is a pure pro, knowledgeable, serious about her job, a very strong patient advocate, and warm and friendly. She makes me feel at ease at every cleaning visit with her. Jackie is an obvious strong staff member there-a jewel for keep.

I have been coming to see Dr. Kim for 4 years and every visit has been a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly and professional. I have no regrets coming to this office. I highly recommend coming here if your looking to find a dentist for regular cleaning and checkups in the Torrance area.

Dr. Kim is incredibly professional, empathetic and friendly. His office staff is also very friendly and attentive. The environment is meticulously clean and comfortable, and beautifully designed. I am currently undergoing extensive procedures for formerly neglected teeth, and he is performing wonderful and skillful artistry in restoring the health and appearance of my teeth. (The staff also plays background classical music at my request, as well as providing the Olympics on the x-ray monitor while waiting in the dental chair …the epitome of providing the patient with a relaxing atmosphere. It can get no better than this!) I and my wife Kristi are beyond being impressed and pleased by this exceptional service. To my way of thinking,there can be no greater dental care than exhibited by Dr. Steve Kim and his staff. Sincerely and appreciatively, John Dickey.

First time at this Torrance dental office.  The doctor from my previous office retired and I was with them since I was 4. First off this office is very high tech with their xrays. My hygienist Jackie was really nice and I felt comfortable while she cleaned my teeth. I would highly recommend this office.

Shalima M. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you for being so gentle and kind! Your entire staff shows me so much care I truly appreciate it, never without a doubt the person I spoke to that day Theresa made me feel so comfortable,I say okay! You see I have been to a few dentists before and was not nice, it has always been about trying to over sell or just over priced! When asked if you can help me they all say yes but want money instead of my dental care! So sad, I feel now Dr Kim and his staff will help me find what I need, so I can tell the difference between caring for the patient and your staff got that, the office very clean! I have been looking so long for a dentist! Suzie, my dental hygienist they all took great care of me, I must say greatly appreciated everyone!! Thank you!! So looking forward to seeing you soon!

I’ve been here more than 10 years and I love it! Dr. Kim is the best dentist I’ve ever met, and Dr. Pyun is also one of top dentists in LA area. I’ve done so many treatments here, and everything was perfectly done. Now, I trust them 100% whatever I have to do there. Also, I like that they explain every steps. After treatment, they ask me everything is fine and confirm there’s no discomfort. I go there every six months for regular cleaning, and I feel like I’ve done a deep cleaning. All staffs are super kind. Always welcoming with smiley face. They send me a remind text few days before the appointment and give me a return call if they miss my call. The office is very clean. All the machines, chairs, stuffs, etc. seem to be new. Even the office is pretty far from my home I feel so great after visiting Dr. Steve Kim’s office.

i have really bad gag reflex but i needed deep cleaning deep inside my mouth. the staff at dr kim’s office and dr kim himself are very understanding and tried their best to make me feel comfortable. and i only gagged couple of times… (no fault to them). They are very professional and friendly and they have the latest equipment. i’d recommend them highly if you live in the south bay area!

Yamileth A. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to say, I was very hesitant about this dental office because I had the same dentist for 17 years, my dentist retired and I was at a loss. Well let me tell you, Dr. Kim is amazing. He explained my treatment very well and it was very easy to understand. The office staff is very friendly, and the office itself is super clean. I didn’t have to wait too long to be seen by Dr. Kim.

I came to Dr.Kim’s office for my cleaning and as usual my experience with Dr.Kim and his staff was great!! There was no pain at all during my cleaning and laser treatment. I would definitely recommend Dr.Kim to anyone looking for a reliable dentist in the area.

Palumbo L. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had the best experience ever! Dr Kim & his staff are awesome, they are helpful, courteous and most importantly so very friendly! I have been to various dental office but none of them compare to this office! Dr Kim takes time to make sure you understand each treatment along with his staff. For those of you that have had uncomfortable experiences, I recommend any of you to visit this office! Hands down Dr Kim and each member of his staff are # 1 in my book! THANK YOU!

Kareko P. from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Steve Kim has been amazing during all of my visits to his office! I’ve had to get multiple crowns and an emergency root canal and have had no problems with my dental care here. Even his recommendation for a specialist was spot on. I was even presented with a payment plan just in case u couldn’t pay for my total sum at once which is important for me because I don’t have great dental insurance. His staff is warm and welcoming, which is pretty rare, and they’ve been very understanding when it’s come to scheduling! I couldn’t ask for more! I highly recommend trying out this office before you go anywhere else.

Dr Kim and his staff have been very professional, friendly, meticulous and humane. Their attention to details is top notch. Even when it comes to the finances, they always strive to seek the best option for me. I have been coming here for about 5 years and I’m very satisfied with how they handle my dental needs, always providing adequate information and care. I would not hesitate in recommending DR Steve Kim’s services to anyone who’s looking for a good, healthy and professional treatment of their dental needs.

Rochelle Y. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Haven’t been to the dentist in well over 10+ years, major phobia.  After cracking a few teeth, I knew I had to go, but even thinking about it caused me great anxiety.  Saw Dr. Kim’s reviews as well as the convenience of being open on Saturdays, and thought I’d give it a try.  So happy I did.  Although I need major work, everyone is so nice and made me feel at ease that I don’t mind that I have many return visits.  So confident, my kids will be going as well!  Thank you Dr. Kim for making me feel so alleviating my anxiety and fear of the dentist.  Although I’ll never probably “enjoy” the dentist, at least I don’t mind going anymore 🙂

Magdalena M. from Wilmington, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience with Dr. Kim. Everyone is friendly and helpful- the wait is very minimal and everything looks super clean. I have always been afraid of the dentist but Dr. Kim is very cautious and detailed makes me feel comfortable with the treatment I need done. He is very knowledgeable and lets me know details of what i need. I have referred my family and friends and all seem to love Dr. Kim. The dental hygienist made me feel less anxious about the procedure and continued to check on me several times while she performed the cleaning. This was by far the best experience I’ve ever had at a dental office. I highly recommend Dr. Kim and his team.

Dora O. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to say I’ve been to other dentist office in the past and this one is the best. From the minute you walk in they make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The staff, hygienist and doctors are great! Thanks for making me look forward to my cleanings and exams.

After having a nightmare experience with Western Dental, I was so grateful to find Dr. Kim and his team. They are so professional and never tried to push some over priced gadget on me. Super reasonable prices, I couldn’t believe it! Highly recommend!

I’m not the biggest fan of the dentist, but with Dr. Steve Kim staff they have made that fear go away. They’re friendly and answer any questions I have in a timely matter. The dental office is great if you live in the Southbay and parking is easy. They also give you a cute tooth brush kit equipped with a toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, and 50 dollar credit included if you refer a new patient, so tell a friend!

Rainelle G. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


The place is great. The staff are all very nice and make you feel very comfortable talking with them. It gives a really inviting feeling that you don’t get from most places. The dentist himself is very patient and understanding. I had my wisdom teeth pulled out. I was really scared and nervous because my last dentist was horrible. He took the time to address all my concerns. In the end everything went fine. They gave me an ice pack and offered pain meds. Next day I wasnt swollen and not at all in pain. The instructions they gave are very clear and I left with no questions. I would definitely recommend and one come to this office.

Raushel R. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


The services here are amazing, friendly staff. I don’t have to wait long to be called in. They provide you with helpful information every time on how to take care of your teeth. They care so much about their patient and their health. Great Dentist office.

Great staff and service. Ling, the hygienist, was very thorough with the cleaning and super friendly. Satisfied as usual! Always look forward to my cleanings at Dr. Kim’s!

Dr S Kim good with his work been his customer since 2005 from he was working in Gardena and now he is Torrance. I like him because he has a lot of patience very kind not to mention there is something about his hands. I never feel the needle when he place anesthesia in my mouth. Jackie the Hygienist is so good at what she does. I will request for her at all times. The staff has great customer service. The entire team gets 5. I highly recommend Dr Steven Kim as your Dentist. You will not regret it

Sun K. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a crown done less then 1 years ago & I had sensitivity & doctor was not able to solve my problem, she just said it will get better. So I went to Dr Steve Kim & doctor told me the crown margin was not fitting perfect & food gets stock!. Dr Steve Kim, did a new crown on me & I didn’t have sensitivity anymore! . Now I know not to go any dentist & make sure the doctor is a prosthodontics specialist like Dr Steve Kim. All the staffs were really kind & professional like the doctor. I would highly recommend this dentist because doctor has a lots of experience. I took all my family here for exam & did treatments that they needed & doctor’s just excellent!.

I love this dental office. I’ve been here twice so far for deep and routine cleanings and I’m very impressed. The technology is very up-to-date and the staff is friendly which makes me pretty relaxed when I come here. This will be my dental office for a long time

Laura S. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. kim’s office. Everyone is so caring and kind. They really make you feel like they have your best interest in mind. They do a great job on whatever your dental needs are and make what can be a nervous situation very relaxed.  Don’t go anywhere else !!!

I’ve been going to Dr. Kim’s dental office for 2 years and have always had a good experience. They have modern equipment and and a great staff. I highly recommend this dental office to anyone looking for a dentist.

Galen Marc (Source: Facebook)


I think the scheduler made a mistake by scheduling my cleaning late in the day (4:40, they close at 5) and there wouldn’t be any hygienist to do the cleaning. Nevertheless, the doctor himself did the cleaning for me and went passed closing time. For this, I will be a customer for life. Not to mention the free goodies they give you after your appointment. 5 STARS.

Jessica M. from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I first found Dr. Kim after receiving a mailer for teeth whitening from him. We had such a great experience with the doctor and the entire staff that we both decided to leave our previous dentists and become patients of Dr. Kim. His entire staff, from the front office to the hygienists, are very personable, helpful, and welcoming. I have now seen Dr. Kim for Iveri whitening, a night guard, and a cleaning/exam, and in all instances he has taken his time with me and made me feel like I was in the most capable hands. I have since referred friends to Dr. Kim and they love him and his staff as well! Switching dentists was definitely one of the best decisions I have made! Thanks Dr. Kim and staff!

Mark N. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff here is amazing! Very sweet and very professional with awesome personality. They made me feel at home and part of there dental family. Then Dr Kim came out to meet me and address my situation. Wow… for the first time I felt comfortable in a dental chair. Wonderful man and understanding of my needs for repair. Big thank you to you all. I will be back!!!
