Dr. Kim’s Staff
Dr. Michael Kim, DDS
Dr. Kim completed his undergraduate studies at California State University, Northridge. In 2002, Dr. Kim obtained his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at University of California, San Francisco. He started his career by helping the Yakima Indian Tribe in Toppenish, WA, and then moved on to serving in public health in Tacoma, WA. Although Dr. Kim enjoyed serving in public health, he knew his compassion would always be limited if he worked under someone else’s demands and expectations. In 2008, Dr. Kim and his wife decided to move to Silverton, OR to practice dentistry and raise their daughter and son. Dr. Kim believes that the best doctor-patient relationships are based on trust, skill and above all, good communication. He takes time to answer all questions or concerns and loves getting to know his patients and educating them about oral health.
When he is not working, Dr. Kim is involved in volunteering on the Teams International Dental Van which serves all people who are in need, regardless of religion, ethnicity, sex, or race. Dr. Kim and his staff have hosted their own annual food drive for SACA and instilled a Candy Buy Back program for 8 years now. He enjoys both playing and making guitars. Although he is very passionate about saving teeth, Dr. Kim is also a fanatic for baseball.
