Dr. Janet Hojung Kim, D.D.S,MS,Orthodontic Specialist
Dr. Ho Jung Kim has graduated from two leading dental schools: University of Southern California and Seoul National University in Korea and is extremely kind and caring. Her main priorities are to make sure that her patients are aware of all the options and treatments available and to answer all of their questions. Her expertise, knowledge and attention to detail come from the extensive training she underwent in Biomimetic Dentistry while she was working towards her second Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree at USC. ‘Biomimetic’ means to “copy” or “mimic” nature. This philosophy of oral health leads Dr. Kim to take her time to conserve as much of the healthy tooth structure as she can to restore teeth to their most natural and healthy condition. This process involves using advanced techniques including the use of composite resin and porcelain onlays.
