“I was drawn to cosmetic dentistry because I wanted to help people whose teeth were damaged or misshapen,” says Dr. Se Jong Kim, the Prosthodontist, or Cosmetic Dentist, at MD Smiles. “Cosmetic dentistry gives me the opportunity to do that and it is quite a joy to be able to do that here.”
Dr. Kim received his Bachelor of Science degree from Carnegie Mellon University and his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, one of the most recognized dental schools in United States. Following that he pursued post-doctoral training, commonly called Prosthodontics at the University of Maryland Dental school.
Prosthodontists specialize in treating dental and facial problems involving the restoration of missing tooth and jaw structures. They are highly trained in cosmetics such as: dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, temporomandibular disorders (TMJ/TMD) and other surgical procedures which may improve a patient’s health and smile.
Prosthodontics is recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). There are only a few licensed prosthodontists serving the Washington Beltway/DMV area.
Dr. Kim’s goal is to provide the highest quality of dental care. He truly considers his patients as an extension of his family and friends. He consistently keeps up to date with latest cosmetic dentistry methods and technology and strives to deliver the finest comprehensive care for patients.
When away from his dentistry office, Dr. Kim spends time with his beloved wife and daughter, cross-fitting, playing games, cooking and traveling.
