Biography

Dr. Christy Kim graduated from the University of Washington School of Dentistry with a doctorate in dental surgery (DDS). She enjoys dentistry because it allows her to combine two of her passions: appreciation and creation of art, and caring for people. She is known for her gentleness, compassion and integrity. She realizes that the dental setting can be difficult for many people, so she and her team take the time to do whatever it takes to help her patients get back to health in a comfortable way. She strives to treat each of her patients as if they were her own family member. And believes that each interaction with her patients, as well as with her team, has eternal impact on each person involved.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Dr. Kim believes in providing her patients with the best quality of care and therefore, strongly believes in continuing education since dentistry is an ever-changing and improving field. She has taken many advanced courses since graduating from dental school and has been trained in all aspects of dentistry. She continues to take courses regularly to keep up-to-date with technology and materials, and to provide her patients with the highest quality of care. This year alone, Dr. Kim will be taking over 100 hours of continuing education (the minimum required for Washington state is 23 hours). After graduating from the prestigious Kois Center (a world-renowned post-graduate level dental training center), she qualified to become a Mentor and now trains other dentists at the Kois Center. This extra training allows Dr. Kim to understand & treat more complex cases (including cosmetic dentistry, full mouth reconstruction, and more complicated bite problems), and allows her to treat simpler cases with greater care and knowledge (by being as conservative and respectful of nature, science, anatomy, and patient's concerns and desires).

    I have been looking for a dentist in the Bellevue area and am happy to say I found Dr. Kim. Today was my first cleaning session and it was a pleasant experience. Dr. Kim is very patient and good to talk to. I have a couple more sessions coming up and ave confidence they will go great as well.

    Dr. Kim was great and the staff was very professional and answered all my questions from the Treatment to the billing. The whole time the dental hygienist was explaining me what she was doing. I am really satisfied with my experience and will go back again.

    Great experience. I had some issues with my teeth that I was concerned about and came out with a gameplan. Looking forward to seeing results. The office was very clean and modern. I never would've found Dr. Christy Kim without Opencare but am so glad I did!

    I had a good experience with Dr. Christy Kim. The overall checkup took less than 30 minutes and the doctor provided detailed explanation about my dental health. She had recommended a follow-up treatment which is absolutely necessary and provided tips for improving the gum health.

    Really good cleaning and all the staff were super nice. Hygienist was friendly and didn’t kill my gums either. All of the tools they used seemed a lot newer than I was used to. X-rays quick and not uncomfortable like usual.

    One of the best experiences I’ve had at the dentist since I can remember. Everyone was very nice and delicate in their work. They were extremely informative and explained proper brushing and flossing techniques to me that would help with gum health. They also made recommendations in regards to my wisdom teeth without being pushy about it. They explained to me very clearly possible outcomes of leaving them in and I am finally convinced that my wisdom teeth should come out. I am looking forward to my next visit in 6 months!

    If I could give 10 stars I would. Christy and the rest of the crew are absolutely amazing. They treated me and my 2 year old with such kindness and respect. First time I have left the dentist feeling good and confident. They even took care of my 2 year old and told me an actual applicable plan for him. Definitely keeping them.
