Dr. Yung Kim – Implant Dentist & Periodontist

Dr. Yung Kim is a double board certified Periodontist and board certified Prosthodontist, educated to treat many extremely complex disorders involving gum disease, tooth decay, and oral pathology. His focus is on full-mouth, complex, surgical, and reconstructive dentistry.  He has extensive knowledge of implant dentistry and advanced surgical procedures, specializing in teeth in a day and All-on-Four implants.  He is also Invisalign certified and experienced with CAD/CAM restorations and dentures.

Dr. Yung Kim is one of a few dental professionals in the U.S. who is both an American Board Certified Periodontist and an American Board Certified Prosthodontist. To achieve this dual certification, he underwent an additional five years of education after dental school. Resulting from his periodontal training, Dr. Kim is skilled in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the supporting structures of the teeth. As a prosthodontist, he replaces damaged or missing teeth as well as hard and soft tissues of the mouth and face. The advanced expertise required to achieve double certification allows Dr. Kim to perform both surgical and restorative aspects of dentistry. As a result, our patients can look forward to an efficient, streamlined process as well as a more comfortable visit with fewer specialists.
