As a pediatric dentist and mom, Dr. Kim is committed to providing the best, most accessible, and least invasive oral health care to children in Elkridge. She’s demonstrated academic excellence throughout her time in dental school.
She received a full Dean’s scholarship to study at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, the very place where she discovered her passion for pediatric dentistry. She graduated Magna Cum Laude and was in the top 8 in her class and holds special credentials in treating cleft palates as well as tongue and lip ties.
Dr. Kim has a passion for providing understanding, compassionate, and conservative dental care to every child in the community. As a mother herself, she knows how to communicate with children on a level that they can understand, how to empathize with them, and how to comfort them so that their dental visit is as pleasant as possible.
Tiny Tooth Pediatric Dentistry is Greenguard certified and Allergy & Asthma Friendly Certified. We’re committed to using biocompatible materials that don’t interfere with patient allergies or other health conditions like asthma.
Our office is stocked with world-class amenities like TVs that play Netflix and Disney +, privacy partitions, and sedation. We offer dental sedation in the form of laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia for patients with special needs and dental anxiety. This can relax patients who are especially nervous before a dental procedure.
Our office is stocked with the latest in dental technology, including digital x-rays that emit less radiation and CO2 lasers that give us the ability to perform less invasive painless frenectomies that heal faster, cause less inflammation, and eliminate the need for anesthetic.
Preventative Dentistry - Prevention and early detection are the most important dental tools when it comes to preserving your child’s oral health. Children need to form a dental home from a young age – somewhere they go consistently for routine care so they form trust and feel less anxious.
We can be your one-stop shop for your child’s oral exams, x-rays, cleanings, and fluoride treatments to prevent serious oral health problems.
Frenectomies - If your child was born with a tight or short frenulum attached to their lip or tongue, this can restrict their movement and lead to speech, oral development, and eating problems.
We can correct this while they’re young to prevent long-term complications by snipping the frenulum so they can regain mobility. We perform this oral surgery with a CO2 laser for increased comfort, faster healing, and the elimination of more invasive surgical tools.
Restorative Dentistry - If your child develops tooth decay or suffers from dental trauma, don’t panic. We provide minimally invasive restorative care to repair your child’s damaged or decayed teeth.
