Dr. James Kim first became interested in dentistry while interacting with patients as a student volunteer at local hospitals in Burlington and Hamilton. When he witnessed how a tooth infection can affect the heart condition in a hospitalized patient, he learned how oral health is closely related to the general health of a person. In order to help others restore healthy smile and confidence, Dr. Kim pursued studies in Health Sciences at McMaster University and went on to complete his dental training at University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry.
Dr. Kim believes empathy is at the centre of optimal dental care. He aims to establish trusting relationship with each of his patient by actively listening to and addressing concerns. He also advocates educating and empowering his patients throughout the treatment process so as to help prevent future diseases.
Dr. Kim has special interest in integrating digital technology in dentistry in order to deliver dental work more efficiently and comfortably. He believes digital technology like intra-oral scanners play a key role in helping his patients to become more knowledgeable about the state of the oral health and making actions steps together.
Dr. Kim has many hobbies outside of work. He loves to travel. He visited 17 countries so far and is always looking for opportunities to explore the world.
