Dr. Kim was born and raised in Spokane, WA and her love of the mountains lured her to the Flathead Valley. She received her B.S. in Biology from the University of Washington and completed her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2017 from the University of Washington School of Dentistry.
Since graduation, Dr. Kim has practiced general dentistry in the Flathead Valley, having worked at CSKT Tribal Health in St. Ignatius and at The Flathead Community Health Clinic here in Kalispell. She volunteers her dental skills at Shepherds Hands, Sealants for Smiles, and is an Affiliate Faculty member for University of Washington.
With Dr. Kim’s affinity for people, she strives to serve her patients with the utmost of compassion, integrity, and clinical experience. She seeks to bridge the gap that occurs as a child ages and transitions from a pediatric to an adult dentist. She focuses on working with teens to make this process smooth and less intimidating.
When Dr. Kim is not in the dental office, you will most likely find her on the ski slopes or floating a river. She has a passion for the outdoors and loves to ski, raft, bike, and hike. She's an active member of several soccer and hockey leagues. She has also been a previous ski instructor at Whitefish Mountain. The love of her family and friends brings her great joy and gives balance to her busy dental career.
