As your prosthodontic dentist, Jiyoung Kim DDS has worked hard to assemble a fantastic team of people. Here, you can learn a little bit about them before you schedule an appointment and meet them. Together, these people work hard to provide the high-quality care that we feel each patient deserves. Turn to us for all of your dental needs, from general dentistry to prosthodontic procedures, including dentures, dental implants, veneers, and so much more.


Beyond general dentistry is a higher level of dental care: dentistry of higher standards, of advanced skills and longer training — more customized care.  

Called Prosthodontics, it focuses on the restoration and replacement of teeth and is the only dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association devoted to restoring and replacing teeth.

Prosthodontists are advanced dental specialists with at least three years of additional training after dental school in an accredited university or hospital-based post-graduate program.  They receive extensive training in dental implants, dentures, veneers, crowns, bridges, and the correction of functional and aesthetic imbalances of a smile.

Whether you want to enhance your smile, strengthen weakened teeth, or replace missing teeth, you owe it to yourself to see how she can help you.

Dr. Jiyoung Kim completed her undergraduate education at the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1992.  After graduating in 1996 from the University of Southern California earning a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, Dr. Kim had both a private practice in West Los Angeles and a staff position as an instructor at USC School of Dentistry.  In order to further her experience and expertise, Dr. Kim completed a three year program of Advanced studies in Prosthodontics at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2001.
