Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Coleen H. from SoMa, San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My mouth was a mess. I had an injury 20 years ago that slowly led to disruption in my upper teeth. 3 front teeth were loose and I was going to lose them. My vanity was what pushed me to seek help. When you meet me, you might think this is a fairly normal person. But get me in a dental chair and I have a melt down. That calm demeanor is replaced with the ugly cry and quivering lower lip. What led me to that point is a series of unpleasant dental experiences with different providers over the years. I now needed dental work and needed to get over my fear. I needed someone that was skilled, who would listen, and who I could trust. I went in for a consult and was in for a pleasant surprise. They listened. It has taken a series of appointments and procedures to fix my smile. The problems were addressed and fixed. Fixing my smile not only addressed my vanity but a few other issues like less post nasal drip, better sleep, less URI. And yes, I now have a great smile. In summary, Dr Kim is a fantastic and extremely competent Dentist and human being. His staff is exceptional, kind, and warm. He and his staff comforted me when i needed it and would alleviate my anxiety. I cannot say enough about the dental expertise and caring environment. Coleen Haynes MD

Highly recommend Tony Kim and his outstanding staff. I had a tooth that was bothering me – but being a busy person – I put off fixing it until it demanded my attention. Dr. Kim was able to fit me in quickly for X-rays, cleaning and tooth repair. The cavity was severe. Other dentists I’ve seen probably would have jumped to a costly and painful repair (root canal) but not Dr. Kim. He said he’d do his best to repair it. He and his staff were very kind and attentive. I’ve had horrible experiences with other dentists in the past and I can honestly say that he has gained my trust and continued patronage. Days after the repair I’m happy to report that my tooth looks and feels great! The entire experience was efficient, gentle and professional. There’s even secured parking and a clean, spa-like waiting room. I highly recommend Tony Kim and his diligent staff. I’ll see you there!

He is a highly skilled dentist. I went to Dr Kim ‘s office for gum problem in August 1997, and was treated with LANAP surgery. The treatment worked, now I have healthy gum. Thank you Dr Kim. Thanks to the very friendly, kind & helpful staff too.

Mary L. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


This is a great dentist, and also a really nice person. He has helped me with a variety of dental issues over the years. I don’t hesitate to recommend him. My relatives also see him, and not one of us has ever been disappointed. He is thoughtful and careful with procedures, and doesn’t rush to assume you will need a very expensive procedure unless you really do. He is conservative about making sure he minimizes invasive procedures, which is why we like his service and keep going back to him. His office is easy to find, and parking is simple. No hassles, just good solid dentistry that you can count on every time. All in all, a big thumbs up for Dr. Tony Kim!

Thank God for Dr. Kim and his amazing staff!!! I was referred by my naturopath to see Dr. Kim to remove my mercury fillings. Because there is a safe way to remove them she only trusted Dr. Kim to do it the right way. I also told Dr. Kim that I was suffering with TMJ and had seen 2 other dentists prior to seeing him. I pretty much had given up the notion that a dentist could help me and I was resigned to the fact that I would be in pain every time I chewed! Dr. Kim took the time to listen to me and I really felt his compassion for my situation. Finally someone not only understood my pain but he was going to help me! With every visit he adjusted my bite and worked his magic! Today I am mercury free and Hallelujah I can chew without pain!!! I appreciate his professionalism, his knowledge, and all his modern day technology … But just as important I am grateful for his compassion! Thank you Dr. Kim, Soledad, and Staff!!! : )

Germaine W. from Kailua, HI (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Kim by a family member after having problems with my previous dentist. My doctor before Dr. Kim told me that there was nothing else he could do for my teeth, so I then sought a second opinion. I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Kim to see what he could possibly do for me to help fix my teeth and he did it all. He restored an old bridge, gave me partial dentures, and even helped the clenching and grinding of my teeth at night by giving me a night guard. I’m happy to say that since then Dr. Kim has been my regular dentist since then.

Paula M. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tony Kim is in another universe of quality care, resources and environment from other biological dentists I have been to. I am so grateful that my naturopathic physician Dr. Steelsmith referred me to him.   He made me an affordable (metal-free) porcelain crown for my #18 molar.  He responded promptly to my many health questions about materials and ingredients giving honest and sound advice. We are fortunate to have him in Honolulu. The Dental Day Spa itself is the finest dental office I have ever been in. Spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated just like a spa with wonderful calming music. Thank you Dr. Kim and staff for making a tough time into a terrific one for me. I am pleased and happy to have you as my new dentist. Paula Mantel, Hawai’i resident since 1981.

Amazing dentist! What I love most about Dr. Kim is that he involves me in the decision making process of all procedures, allowing me to feel more informed and in control of my care. I’ve had several crowns made, a tooth extraction and a subsequent dental implant. They all look and feel great! Though I’ve never needed them personally, my brother tells me that Dr. Kim does a really good job with veneers too. Not only that, I have never experienced a more painless dental experience than at this office. I definitely feel comfortable bringing my family and recommending my friends to this office. Great job Dr. Kim!!!

Fantastic dentist! My family (mother, wife, sister) have been going to Dr Kim for awhile now and we always feel cared for. He explains very clearly the different options and why he gives his opinions. He really cares about our overall dental health. I usually get nervous seeings dentists but he always puts me at ease. Thank You Dr Kim!

Ann P. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim is awesome. He is well trained, has wonderful bedside manner and he does amazing work! This is my first Yelp review but he is well deserving. I had many root canals and crowns in my late teens and 20s by a family dentist and a few different endodontists on the mainland while attending college. Over the years, I suffered from bleeding gums, jaw pain and gum sensitivity. I also had concerns regarding some discoloring on my front tooth which was embarrassing especially as a professional meeting new people everyday. When I first saw him a little over a year ago, I was having dull constant pain, could no longer chew on the right without discomfort and food was getting stuck in my left upper molars. I saw several dentists and no resolution. I basically was on a path of continuing to need more root canals due to my unhealthy gums despite brushing and flossing regularly. During my consultation, Dr. Kim immediately made me feel comfortable. His evaluation was more thorough than any I have had before and care plan was very clear. It was obvious he truly wanted me to get my mouth back to good health and he had confidence that I could be free from pain. He did an amazing job. While he worked on me (through several sessions due to the extensive work needed) he was always checking to make sure I was comfortable and he and his staff are always very professional and caring. Long story short, I no longer have any pain, my gums are healthy and my smile looks great again. He fixed it all and I couldn’t be happier. I received may compliments on my new smile as well. I highly recommend him to all. I referred my family and friends and they all love him! Please go see him! He truly is the best!

Best Dental Experience I’ve ever had. Gentle, caring and extremely knowlegable. I trust Dr. Kim with my entire families dental needs and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants a totally different dental experieince. Dr. Kim and his staff really care about giving everyone the best experience possible. I actually look forward to going to the dentist now. Big Aloha!!!

Kris I. from CA, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim and his team are seriously the best and Dr. Kim’s expertise goes beyond dental health. We immediately found out after our initial meeting that he genuinely cares for his patients. He worked out a plan to ensure my teeth and overall health in the best condition. We’ve tried several dental offices all over Oahu and even though the drive from Kapolei to Kaimuki can be a challenge, health is very important that should only be entrusted to the very best.

Wendy B. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you have chosen to go here, congratulate yourself. You have found the cream of the crop. The amazing Dr. Anthony Kim. We have had Dr. Kim as our dentist in So Cal for several years now. And his leaving to move to Honolulu to receive further training was absolutely traumatic. It is rare to find such a fine doctor and so difficult to replace. Thankfully, he is very loyal to his patients, so much he has returned to his old office each month for special appointments. I feel safe in his hands and am just as loyal right back at him. We found Dr. Kim after going to another excellent dentist for many years (an obscenely long drive for us, but necessary). After tiring of the drive and hair-raisingly scary LA freeways, we knew it was time to find someone just as good, but closer to home. Easy to say, but a very hard bill to fill. So here is how I officially met him. All I can say is, we liked sushi, him too. So friend him, then just stalk him. Dirty little secret. You will know…just look for frequent check ins. Aloha Cones, maybe? We accidentally met several times socially at our mutually appreciated sushi spot before realizing that some kind of divine intervention was going on here. This was meant to be our future dentist (you’ll know too). Mr. B is well known in the best of dentistry circles for his fragile teeth, massive dental bills, and now gorgeous implants. His expenses could have been a nice retirement package for many of us (I am not really kidding). When a dental emergency arose for Mr. B, I had to see Dr Kim in action, so I came along for the ride. Turns out, he seriously impressed us both. I became his patient as well, and our adult kids and families have followed suit. After having experienced some really slip shod dentistry in the past, I must say, the technology he uses is impressive, his thoroughness, beyond anything I have ever experienced. And if he determined a need for other specialties, this already highly skilled dentist has no qualms about referrals. He is quite well connected. Definitely a plus. His extreme efforts to make us at ease, comfortable and pain-free is a wonderment. Even our littlest family member, 2 year old Drew, grandson extraordinaire, had a beautiful experience, no tears. His hollistic approach to dentistry and general health has been the crowning moment and the definite deal sealer. And please do check out the special products he sells in his office. As a diabetic, I appreciate his excellent, sugar free products, including SF lollipops for the kids, breath mints, toothpaste, mouthwash, and ayurvedic oral pulling rinses. I have no doubt his new office is just as special and beautiful as the one he left behind. Hey…you might even start looking forward to dental appointments…..and that is not wrong. You are so lucky, Honolulu. Count your blessings!

Kevin M. from Moloka‘i, HI (Source: Yelp)


What a great experience! Dr Kim is super professional and a great listener! He took extra special care of my aged mom who had some challenges with her teeth. His staff was very patient and they made special accommodations for her to make her feel comfortable. His office staff made my whole visit easy and made me feel like family! Thank you, Dr Kim!

Ingrid Higgins (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Kim was amazing with my husband. Prior to meeting Dr. Kim, my husband had a strong fear of dentists and wouldn’t get needed dental work done. Dr. Kim was so good with him and put his dental fears to ease. I am happy to say that because of this he has been able to get all the dental work done needed and that he gets regular check ups! Thanks Dr. Kim, you are an amazing dentist!

Rosey S. from Haleiwa, HI (Source: Yelp)


I was searching for a holistic dentist. I’m SO lucky I found Dr Kim and highly recommend him to anyone who’s looking for a safe and effective approach to dentistry. The way he practices is exactly what I was looking for. He informed me of what he was doing every step of the way, and why, which was so helpful in keeping me steady and calm. I’m usually nervous to go to the dentist, but this time I felt comfortable and I’m not even nervous to go back. He talked about dentistry very clearly, and I felt like I could really trust his work and his guidance. The entire team was welcoming. Mahalo!!

Who loves dentists? Certainly, I didn’t, growing up, and up until I landed at Dr. Kim’s dental chair. I was in pain, desperately in search of relief & solutions. Since I didn’t like dentists & feared them, I never ask, never questioned procedures, heck, most dentists don’t go out of their way to tell you their game plan anyway, discuss long term effects, etc. My prejudice about dentists slowly turned a 360° After a series of consults with Dr. Kim. He was very patient with me, took time to explain options and knows very well that the teeth is very much connected to the rest of the body and its symptoms of pain may reflect the overall health of the person. His practice is holistic and is knowledgeable as well on topics such as food, effective probiotics, chiropractic care, etc! His staff is very caring & friendly, we feel welcomed and at home each visit. You will never feel hurried, that you gotta get out the door even when there are patients waiting to be seen. I live in Makakilo but I travel thru H-1 traffic to get (to Kahala) dental care from Dr. Kim. Settling for nothing but the best as I have experienced quality care for the first time ever. Mahalo, Dr. Kim, Soledad, Cheryl and the rest of your staff for topnotch service!

Professional, caring, warm, friendly , great communication, clear understanding in what to expect. I got my molar removed and instantly I felt the better difference and had a pepp in my step. My nerves /joints in my body seemed functional like it should be when healthy. I got more work to be done. My trust is in Dr. Kim and Abby. Am a HAPPY CAMPER! Ashley, Soledad, Abby and Gigi are a great asset to Dental Day Spa! aka “The ATeam” Mahalo plenty! Trudy

Jordan K. from Urban Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Going to the dentist can be uncomfortable, but the team at Tony Kim, DDS really made my experience a welcoming one. Scheduling was efficient, and the customer service was exceptional. Soledad was very genuine. As the first and last person to interface with the customer, Soledad made sure I came in happy and left even happier. If you’ve had sub par or worse experiences with dentists, look no further! Check out Tony Kim, DDS.

Sherry C. from Waipahu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim and his staff are wonderful! Dr. Kim is very patient and listened to all of my concerns and fears. He made sure I was okay every step of every procedure. His hygienist is great, as well! She explained everything she was going to do and why she needed to do it. He and his staff always made sure I was comfortable. He is truly a GREAT dentist and blessed with an AWESOME staff!!

Sheryl Wainwright (Source: Facebook)


I’m so impressed with Dr. Tony Kim! I’ve been to dentists in NY, CA, and HI. None of them measure up to Dr. Tony Kim’s, professionalism, honesty, kindness, and concern for the welfare of his patients. Dr. Kim is very knowledable and is up to date with the latest dental technology. He puts you at ease from the start. I expected some pain and discomfort but there was none. The procedure was done before I knew it. It is obvious that Dr. Kim chose his staff carefully because they are a reflection of Dr. Tony Kim. I was pampered from the moment I entered to the very end of my visit. It was as if I were at the spa! If you’re looking for a new dentist for whatever reason, I definitely suggest you give Dr. Tony Kim a call. Thank you Dr. Kim and staff!

Came here to have a post and new crown done on my molar. I am extremely afraid and hate going to the dentist because of past experiences with other dentists. I’m glad my wife found this place. From the moment I walked in the office the staff was friendly and make me feel comfortable. The treatment was surprisingly painless. Now I know that I’ve been going to the wrong places all this time. I’m so grateful to be under Dr.Kim and his staffs care. Awesome place. Thanks Dr. Kim, Abby, Jee, Sol and April.

I absolutely love Dr. Kim and his amazing staff. Along with himself, Gigi and Soledad the three of them together making coming to their office a pleasant one. Full of laughter and smiles, seeing them really never gets old. What I believe makes their office different from others is the chemistry that they all have between them which makes working with each other much easier and patients really notice that. I’ve had my fair share of doctors and Dr. Kim really goes above an beyond to explain to you your treatment of care. Many times I’ve sat in that dental chair, had work done, and after everything was completed was sent on my way. But with Dr. Kim he stopped numerous times throughout every procedure checking in on me making sure I was okay, and at the end of it all he explained everything that he did that day making sure I understood what was done and what needs to happen from there

Christy H. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Didn’t realize dental work could be so painless.  Not completely painless of course but closest to it in my over 40 years.  He’s the 5th dentist I’ve had over my lifetime. I always believed the level of pain and discomfort was a given and expected (multiple cavities over the years from severe acid reflux and cracked teeth from clenching my jaw).  He so thoroughly numbed me, I was fighting to stay awake during the procedure… very bored… he finally had to use the bite block LOL.  Saw him 3 times.  One for consult and one visit for each side of my mouth.  Very professional, thorough and patient each time.  The nicest fillings I’ve had too!  So smooth and conforming to the rest of the tooth.  Prior work I’ve had I could feel the edges of the fillings often times.  Then erosions or cavities would form within these cracks/fissures and I’d have to get them done again!  His training as a cosmetic dentist really shows even for non “cosmetic” procedures!  Thank you Dr. Kim!  I’ll be seeing you again !!!

Thinh N. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Found Dr. Kim through Facebook and didn’t know what to expect. I figured couldn’t hurt to go in and get a free consultation. I was very impressed/touched with Dr. Kim’s professionalism and amazing care for MY best interest. Had work done on 08/16/2016 and I couldn’t be happier with the result and looking forward to more services in the near future. Thank you Dr. Kim and staff for restoring my smile and more importantly, my confident/self-esteem. Sincerest, An EXTREMELY happy patient! Thinh Nguyen

Bridgette C. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Most people are afraid to go to the dentist, but I look forward to seeing Dr. Kim.  Dr. Kim and his team are absolutely wonderful.  He is holistic and understands the effects mercury.  I feel blessed to have him as a dentist and would recommend him to my friends.  I received professionally whitening treatment and I am ecstatic after seeing my results.  I also had to receive a crown and he did an excellent job of making me feel comfortable.  The office is calming and they have a massage therapist that massages your legs and feet while you are receiving treatment.  If every dentist was as excellent as Dr. Kim then there would be more healthier mouths and whiter smiles.  Regardless of where I live he will always be my dentist!

Patrick P. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


For a period of 4 years, I suffered from constant sensitivity on one side of my mouth. I saw a few dentists while I was in California who couldn’t get a good grasp of the problem and dismissed my concerns as normal sensitive gums. Finally, I developed a periodontal abscess and broke the root of my tooth which required extraction. When that tooth was removed, I found out that the bone had receded far enough that I needed a bone graft in order to get an implant. I moved to Hawaii before the job was completed so I was referred to Dr. Tony Kim to complete the crown for my implant. The thing that impressed me most when I first met Dr. Kim was that he took his time to listen to my story and did a thorough exam. He explained to me what happened to that tooth and that the deep pockets and gum disease caused bone loss which lead to the tooth fracture. I realized that this could’ve been prevented if I was shown how to take better care of my tooth earlier on instead of being dismissed. When another tooth started to become sensitive, he was able to save me from getting a second implant. Thankfully, I’m no longer suffering from dental problems. Having good teeth requires good daily care and a partnership with a caring and experienced dentist like Dr. Kim!

As a naturopathic physician, I refer many of my patients to see Dr. Kim for safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings and for an excellent biological dentist who truly cares about them. I see Dr. Kim myself as a patient and once I even received a foot massage while getting a dental cleaning, what a treat!

You only get one set of teeth (two if you include your baby set), but my point is you must take care of them! What I appreciate the most about Dr. Kim is his holistic approach. Before suggesting any type of operation or procedure, he thoroughly inspects your mouth and gives suggestions on how YOU would like to approach things. His staff is super friendly and attentive. I’ve been to a several dental offices on island and his location is definitely the cleanest and Dr. Kim is very knowledgable. Come prepared with questions (or concerns) and he’ll dive deep with you to settle all your worries.

Tiffany W. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Although I did not come here for dental services, I left a message to find out if my sons could be seen here and if they accepted my dental insurance. It turns out Dr. Kim does not take teens/children as patients. I was informed via a call back. What was really impressive was that the lady who called me back gave me this information and she also referred me to another dentist when she called me back. That was really nice of her. She represents this dentist very well.

Mike R. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Best yelp find yet!!!! Needed a dentist closer to home, very attentive and actually listens to your requests! Amazing best pain free dental experience i have ever had! Its great when you ask a question and your not talked down to but answered truthfully and technically wow what a comfort! Dr. Kim and his professional chosen co workers are a team you will keep coming back for an unforgettable dental experience!!!!! I would have never put off my dental work/cleanings knowing there was a Dentist out there who was a true professional, can’t wait till my next app!

Joanna M. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Cue the soothing nature music. Lavender aromatherapy. Neck pillows. Blankets. Massages. Hot towels after each appointment. I thought I scheduled myself for the dentist, instead, it turned out to be a spa – a dental spa. For awhile I was seeking a cosmetic dentist to enhance my smile. I was always self-conscious of my upper lateral incisors because they were basically underdeveloped and noticeably smaller than the rest of my teeth. My boyfriend recommended Dr. Kim so I decided to schedule a consultation with him. From the moment I stepped into Dr. Kim’s office I knew I was going to be in good hands. Dr. Kim is an artist. He is a perfectionist who pays attention to detail (the type of detail I’ve never noticed about my own teeth!) including the shape, texture, and color and translucency of my teeth. He explained what he was doing during each procedure and made sure I was comfortable. He is gentle, thorough, and will work to ensure you are happy with the end result. Dr. Kim’s assistant, Jayvee, has got to be one of the sweetest people you’ll meet. She is always smiling, courteous, and really completes the picture of this exceptional dental office. Amazing doctor AND great staff?! You’ve hit the jackpot. I know I did. This welcoming office will diminish your fears of going to the dentist. They are caring, accommodating and strive to make you feel comfortable throughout your experience from the moment you walk through their door. Each one of my experiences at this office has been a positive one and I couldn’t be any happier with my smile makeover!

I just had my first Wisdom tooth taken out by Dr. Kim. They took time to make sure I was comfortable, and Jayvee took extra care to make sure I didn’t feel any pain….She is so nice and sweet. They are very kind and also very professional, and my Wisdom tooth came out nice and easy….no problem. I give them 5 stars for their kindness and excellent work. ~ Dolly Tun

Liset B. from Moreno Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim comes highly recommended – this is the dentist you need to see if you want to get rid of those toxic silver fillings (50% mercury), also known as amalgams. Dr. Kim is a HOLISTIC DENTIST, and he practices SAFE MERCURY REMOVAL at a reasonable cost… I did have to pay out of pocket for this procedure (insurance did not cover much), but it was well worth the cost. I had 5 of my mercury fillings removed and my son had 3 of them removed as well. They were replaced with white, composite fillings for my son, and white fillings/partial crowns for me. It can be difficult to find a holistic dentist that will actually practice safe mercury removal, while keeping high standards for patient care, as the vapors released from the mercury can be extremely toxic if inhaled during the procedure. Why did I even allow mercury fillings to be placed in my mouth and in my son’s mouth in the first place? Good question! I didn’t know any better years ago!! Dr. Kim was very patient with my 8 year-old boy and knew how to put him at ease (a very difficult task indeed). Dr. Kim has a soft hand at placing local anesthesia… I couldn’t believe how he got my son to sit still while placing two huge syringes in his mouth (one on each side). My son would NEVER EVER sit still for an injection before (he would always put up a fight, w/ me having to pin him down in the end), so this was like one of those A-HA moments for me. I also had 2 injections to numb my mouth in order to have my mercury fillings removed and replaced, and I did not feel a thing myself. I had 3 partial crowns placed after my fillings were removed… they form the actual crown while you wait, so you get to leave with your permanent crown already in place! Dr. Kim’s practice is more on the cutting edge of dentistry, including laser surgery for gum treatment – gingivitis/periodontal disease. All in all, I had major work done here w/ the removal of my 5 silver fillings, 3 partial crowns (molars), deep cleaning (gums), and my son’s mercury removal as well. I hasn’t been to a dentist in two years before I visited Dr. Kim. But I was really looking forward to all the visits here like never before.
