Dr. Jihyon Kim
Meet Dr. Kim
Though I came to the dental profession by following in my father’s footsteps, my passion for the field grew into something truly amazing once I started working with patients. I realized how lucky I was to have chosen a profession that allowed me to connect with patients on a personal level while helping them improve and maintain their oral health. Each individual has a unique and important story. I feel extremely privileged for the opportunity to work with so many people on a personal level. My experiences remind me to be a better version of myself; I strive to remain humble, compassionate, and diligent.
Education and continuing education
- Bachelor’s degree – University of Chicago
- Dental degree – University of Washington School of Dentistry
By participating in the Spear Study Club and taking courses through the Dawson Academy, I work at improving my skill, knowledge, and judgment to offer better care to my patients. Besides the academic interests I have in building on my skills through continuing education, I want to be sure I am doing what I can to provide our patients the best care known to our field.

Outside the Office
A native of Chicago, I currently reside in Mercer Island with my husband Scott, and our children, James and Mark. I come from a very tight-knit family and I am fortunate that my children are able to grow up with their cousins. When I have free time I enjoy cooking, reading, skiing, and volunteering at my children’s schools in order to be as involved in their educational community as possible.
