Meet Dr. John Kim
Although born in Los Angeles, Dr. Kim grew up mostly in Oakville where his family currently resides. Dr. Kim first became interested in dentistry when he was a student volunteer looking after geriatric patients at local hospitals in Oakville and Hamilton.

At the practice, Dr. Kim values providing comprehensive patient-centered care and creating a warm and welcoming environment for everyone and their families. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry, especially oral surgery, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Kim always strives to further educate himself through continuing education programs to provide optimal care for his patients. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Kim is an avid sports fan.
