About

Dr. Tony Kim was born in Seoul, South Korea. He moved to Edmonton for University, receiving his Bachelor of Physical Science in 2010, and his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2014, both from the University of Alberta. Dr. Kim finds the entire practice of dentistry immensely rewarding and enjoys all aspects of it, whether it’s something as simple as restoring a cavity, or a more complex case like a root canal. He has a particular interest in Cosmetic Dentistry and Oral Surgery. Dentistry has always been a part of Dr. Kim’s life. Growing up, he spent a great deal of time at his mother’s clinic, and always looked forward to going there after school to watch her work (and to play with the cool gadgets, of course). Dentistry is an ever-changing field, and Dr. Kim continuously strives to be better and to go above and beyond to provide his patients with quality dental care. Dr. Kim frequently partakes in continuing education to further enhance his skills and to familiarize himself and stay up to date with all new technology. When he gets asked whether he likes his job, his answer is always, “Well, of course, because to me, it’s not a job, it’s a passion!” Dr. Tony Kim is a firm believer that a great bedside manner is equally as important as clinical skills. We all know dental anxiety is a real thing. For the extremely nervous patients, Dr. Kim is pleased to offer IV sedation to make any procedure or treatment as comfortable as possible. He speaks fluent Korean for any patient who might find this more convenient. Most importantly, Dr. Kim’s role as a healthcare professional is to ensure that his top priority is you, the patient.
