Meet Our Dentists
Dr. Susan Kim, DDS
Dr. Susan grew up in Long Island, New York. In 1995, she earned her BA in Psychology and Education at Wellesley College in Massachusetts. Following graduation she spent one year teaching English in a girls high school in Seoul, Korea. She returned to New York to attend Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, receiving her dental degree in 2000.
Combining her two passions, children and dentistry, she continued her training in a Pediatric Dentistry postdoctoral program at Columbia. She gained valuable experience by treating children with medical challenges, assisted with clinical instruction to dental students, and conducted research on the advancement of digital radiography.
Upon receiving her certificate, she focused on providing dental care to children in New York and New Jersey until she moved to the breathtaking Pacific Northwest. Her first opportunity in the northwest allowed her to provide comprehensive dental services to local Native-American children, which she found very rewarding and insightful.

Dr. Susan believes that there is always something new to learn in the field of dentistry. For this reason, she is committed to expanding her knowledge and expertise, taking advanced courses in pediatric dentistry and other related topics. She also provides her staff with opportunities to learn and grow in their profession.
