Dr. James Kim was born and raised in a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. After completing his studies in biology and psychology at Boston College, he received his dental education and training at New York University College of Dentistry, where he also acquired a certification in Public Health. After completing his studies, he began his dental career back in his hometown, spending several years in private practice, as well as spending much needed time back at home with family. Life had different plans for James, and he soon found himself in San Francisco where he plans to reside long term.
Raised by a family that stressed importance in conservative values and friendly, well-mannered interactions with others, Dr. Kim has translated these teachings to his relationship with his patients. Dr. Kim had long sought to work in a practice in the Peninsula that would allow him to practice doing what he believes is in the best interest for his patients. After a lengthy search, Dr. Kim was fortunately introduced to this practice at 29 Birch, where the values of the previous owners seemed to mirror his own.
Being a family oriented person, Dr. Kim spends much of his free time enjoying life with Michelle and their beloved dog, Bailey. Outdoor living has been a great benefit for James and Michelle since their move out west. Their hobbies include walks in parks with Bailey, enjoying the wide variety of culinary treats San Francisco and the Peninsula have to offer, and the occasional winery excursion when time and weather permits.
Dr. Michelle Kim spent her youth in Atlanta, Georgia, completed her Bachelor of Science degree in cell molecular biology from the University of Michigan, and received her dental degree from the University of California San Francisco. Upon graduating, she practiced general dentistry in Massachusetts, but relocated back to the Bay area in 2013 with her husband, James.
Dr. Kim is a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Mateo Dental Society. She is dedicated to provide her patients with caring and comprehensive treatments that are based on conservative and preventive dentistry. She truly loves practicing dentistry and always aspires to learn new techniques and practices to enhance patient care.
When she can find enough time off out of her busy schedule, Michelle enjoys traveling to various parts of the world, immersing herself in and being inspired by these new cultures. She also enjoys painting, spending time with Bailey, and the occasional baking.
