Dr. John H. Kim, DDS


“A very caring and perfectionist dentist” is how most of his patients describe him. Dr. Kim has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years in the Bay Area.  He is a perfectionist by nature and his devotion to patient care reflects this.  He is committed to keeping up with state-of-the-art techniques by attending seminars and continuing education that enables him to deliver the most up-to-date care to his patients. 

He grew up in the Bay Area.  He always knew that he was going to be a dentist since middle school.  He followed his passion for combining artistry and science in dentistry.  He graduated from University of California at Davis (UC Davis) with dual degrees in Biological Sciences and Art.  He then graduated from University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry.  At his dental school, he served as a yearbook illustrator and tutored other students.  Both his professors and fellow students admired his talent.   

When not practicing dentistry, he enjoys oil painting and sculpting and watching movies.  He also enjoys competitive cycling.  He rides up to the Summit of Mt. Diablo 4-5 times a week.   To name a few cycling rides, he has ridden in Davis Double Century, Mt. Diablo Challenge, Cruella Challenge, Canyon Century, and Death Ride or Tour of California Alps. 

He is happily married, has two sons, and a border collie.
