Meet Dr. Yoon J. Kim
I am genuinely passionate about my profession and have always been fascinated about how the teeth work in tandem with other muscles in the body. I chose to pursue dentistry because I love these complexities of our oral system, as well as the fine details that make the whole system work well. It is my goal to help each patient achieve excellent oral health through a personal relationship that allows me to understand his or her outlook on life and health.
I earned my BA in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and then earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Boston University School of Dental Medicine. I found a great community in Easton to continue deliverying excellent dentistry after having spent over 7 years at a private practice in Nashua, NH. I keep learning as much as I possibly can about the field through continuing education at the Pankey Institute, Spear Education, the Academy of Osseointegration, the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, the Quintessence Publishing Implant Symposium, and the Yankee Dental Conference.
Away from work, I love spending time with my wife, Angelina Hong, who works for the State House of Representatives as a research director and our baby daughter Elliana and hanging out with our puppy named Maki. Angelina is also a dedicated foodie and great cook! We enjoy exploring different cuisines, traveling, and time with our families. I love to follow New England sports teams, play basketball and golf, mix music, and read just about anything. We are also members of the Museum of Fine Art.
Meet the Team
My entire team strives to deliver excellent care in a compassionate and conscientious environment. We’re all enthusiastic about life, we appreciate our community, and most importantly, we love learning about what’s important in our patients’ lives. I consider it a privilege to practice dentistry in this community; and delivering dentistry is only one small part of the equation. Creating relationships with my patients has not only allowed me to get to know how they see health in their own eyes, but has made me a better clinician and human being. It is hard to describe the feeling of seeing a patient smile again, or eat food they weren’t able to before, and doing it pain free.
I hope you’ll come by our office soon so we can start working together to keep your oral health at its best!
"It is my goal that my patients remain comfortable in the dental setting, both physically and emotionally."I listen to each patient’s goals and help them achieve them. I perform exams, periodontal therapy, and also educate patients about the importance of good oral hygiene. I love helping anxious patients who once avoided dental treatment work through their fears and attain outstanding oral health and confidence. The whole team takes great pride in what we do and we really care about our patients.
"I provide general dental hygiene services for our patients when they come in for their appointment as well as assisting the doctor when needed."I thoroughly enjoy working with our patients, many of which have become my good friends over the years. Making a difference in their lives is a wonderful feeling and I learn something new from them every day. Our staff all shares the same goal: providing our patients with the best and most professional dental treatment we can, while having fun at the same time! I married my high school sweetheart and have two beautiful daughters and son. I’m a big New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, and Walt Disney fan! I enjoy traveling, golfing, biking, and spending time with my family.
"All of us here share a strong bond in wanting to help our patients achieve and maintain their health, and have fun doing it! "As a dental hygienist I perform prophylaxis, take digital radiographs, educate our patients on good nutrition and oral hygiene, and provide support with administrative and sterilization duties. Establishing a personal connection with everyone who walks through our doors, helping them to better their dental and overall health, and sharing my knowledge of nutrition with them are all things I really love about my job. Away from work I am married and have two very active and intelligent boys. I enjoy cooking with my husband and seeking out new and delicious restaurants with my family. I also have a passion for studying nutrition and exercise physiology.
"My favorite part of being a hygienist is the patients - I enjoy helping them to achieve healthy and beautiful smiles in a comfortable environment regardless of where they are on their journey to health."My duties as a dental hygienist are to provide dental prophylaxis for all ages, fluoride treatments, place sealants, perform periodontal scaling and root planing and maintenance services, take digital radiographs, and administer local anesthesia. Our office is a group of caring and hardworking people who come together to provide the best treatment for all the patients. In my spare time, I love spending time outdoors - camping, hiking, kayaking and gardening - all of which is better with my family.
"I started working at this practice in 2010 and have come to love our patients so much; they’re my favorite part about the job!"My duties are to provide preventive dental services and periodontal maintenance to our patients. I work hard to give our patients clinical excellence but always try to keep things light-hearted and casual at the same time. I’m married and have three amazing children. When I’m not in the office I spend my time traveling, jogging, reading, and doing outdoor activities with my family.
"The family-like atmosphere in our office really puts me at ease and allows me to do my very best for our patients. "
"My favorite part of being a dental assistant is seeing the transformation of a patient needing our help to completion of a beautiful smile."I assist the doctors with procedures, answer patient questions, make patients feel comfortable during treatment, organize laboratory work, take digital radiographs, and perform any necessary sterilization. I am excited to begin my new career as a dental assistant. I love being part of this team because everyone is warm, welcoming, and work together to make sure every patient is well taken care of and comfortable. Away from work, I love spending time with my family and friends, especially my daughter Leah, who is my word. I enjoy doing fun activities with her as well as trying new foods and restaurants.
"My favorite part of my job is knowing I helped someone with their smile!"I assist the dentist chairside and always make sure the patient is comfortable.
"I really enjoy greeting our patients and getting to know them a little bit better every time they come in."I help make sure the front desk runs smoothly by answering phone calls, receiving payments, sending out appointment reminders, scheduling patients, checking in and sending out laboratory cases, and sorting and filing charts. The doctors and staff here make it a very fun and family-friendly environment, which I think puts everyone here in a good mood. When I’m at home I most appreciate spending time with my family. My three-year-old son Robbie is the love and joy of my life. I wouldn’t trade a day with him for anything!
"Throughout the 18 years that I have been in the dental field, I have truly enjoyed interacting with our patients and getting to know them. "I do whatever it takes to make sure the office runs as smoothly as possible so that our patients feel relaxed and happy during their dental visits. I love the collaboration between all staff to ensure the patients have a great experience with us. During my time at home, I really enjoy spending time with my husband Paul and my two children, Patrick and Emma. One of our favorite things to do is travelling to Florida to visit family. I also enjoy reading, going to the beach, and my kickboxing class.
