I had a trauma accident related with my teeth, I used to be intimidated by many other dentists and other offices; but Beautiful Dentistry is a very warm and welcoming office that changed my thoughts of an ideal dentist completely. If I could give more than 5 stars, then I would.

The dentists and hygienist here are very professional and they treat their patience with care and understanding. I suffered personally from some serious gum disease and it really bothered me like every single second of my life. But after the treatment they recommend which is nothing overdone, just a deep cleaning, my problem has been genuinely solved . And they also remind me about the dental insurance that I thought I never had but actually have which saves me tons of money.

I wish I could rate Beautiful Dentistry more than 5 stars! When I walked in, I was greeted by Sarah and Grace. Immediately, my temperature was taken, I was given hand sanitizer, and everything was sanitized such as my ID and even the pens! They were both very warm and welcoming! I found out later that Grace was the manager and it was evident that she is very attentive and takes care of every patients’ needs! Pricilla was the dental assistant and she took my x-rays and pictures. She was very gentle and patient! She was with me the whole time while I got a checkup and cavity filling by Dr. David Kim AND got my teeth cleaned by Clair. Dr. Kim was very attentive to every concern I had and thoroughly explained everything. He made sure I felt comfortable at all times and was very gentle and patient as well. Clair cleaned my teeth and I feel like a brand new person now! She made sure to be tender and soft while she treated me. Overall, the atmosphere of the office is super chill, fun, and comfortable. Communication was great and I felt at ease through every step of the process. We had a couple laughs and they gave me great tips to keep my mouth and teeth healthy and clean. 10/10 would recommend to all my friends and family!

Ok so we all know it’s kinda scary going to the dentist. For that reason I held off going for awhile. Ummm bad decision, I had a root canal that got really bad and I felt horrible. Anyways I was at work feeling like I just got beat up, when my boss recommended this place. So I called and wow that’s all she wrote. I’m hooked on Beautiful Dentistry. They are extremely tentative to their patients. They focus on what you need right away and recommend work that should be done without being pushy and demanding. They have a great office very clean and inviting!. Even though I was there every week for about month they didn’t get tired of me and my teeth. I’ve been recommending this place ever since. Thank you everybody at Beautiful Dentistry for everything!

Found Beautiful Dentistry while i was searching for a dental office on Yelp. Going to the dentist is never fun especially if you havent been to one for a looooooong time. I have been to 4 or 5 dental offices and i have to say that the staff and dentist i dealt with at Beautiful Dentistry are really friendly and awesome especially Sarah, Priscilla, Grace, Claire, and Dr David Kim. Very very informative. They explain everything thoroughly from exam to procedures. If you currently dont really like your dental place and looking for somewhere new, give them a call!! Oh, i hate flossing, but Claire and Grace got me to water floss cause i really dont want to do another deep cleaning 😂😂

For someone with anxiety about the dentist, they really made me feel as comfortable as possible. Their staff is really welcoming, friendly, and professional. I would most definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist!

I came in as a walk in, today and though I am SURE it is not a everyday thing, I was able to see the Dentist, and take care of what I wanted right then. They didn't try to push anything on me, and this was by far, one of my BEST dentist visits. And I hate Dental offices. Every person I dealt with was kind, sweet and made me feel at ease more so than I ever have been. I plan to move my Dentist procedures to this place going forward.Thank you all...

Highly recommend this office! Everyone working here has gone above and beyond to provide exceptional service. Dr. David Kim is very calming, pleasantly easy to speak with, has a gentle touch, and is very through in his work. Very impressed and am so glad to have found a great Dental office.

Coming to a dental office can be very intimidating, which was the case for myself as well until I met Dr. Park at this office. He is a warm/good doctor who fully understands what doctor must do to comfort patients during procedures. If you have any trauma from previous dental work, I highly recommend seeing him. He knows how to accommodate a variety of patients.

I was there last week to get dental exam since it has been awhile after I visited the dentist. Doctor and staffs were very welcoming and made me comfortable. Front desk were very friendly and thorough since I didn't know what my insurance will cover and will not cover. When I sat down at the chair, Dr. Kim was very soft-spoken and gentle in his care which I appreciated since I had bad experience with heavy handed dentists. He thoroughly examined and walked me through the x-ray pictures and actual teeth photos of mine (which is so cool because I can actually see what's in my mouth!). He explained the science behind it and helped me understand my condition. I had to do two fillings. Also there was one tooth that was on fine-line (not a decay yet) but he said we can put it under watch. He did not over-diagnose. After fillings were done, he showed me how it was done again with the photos. The whole experience here was very pleasant! I think I found my dentist. 🙂 Thank you guys!
