What Dr. Mel Kim's patients say?
I would personally thank Dr. Mel Kim and her dental assistant Normal for the service they provided for my daughter today. The whole process was excellent. Very friendly service. Smiling face during the whole process. At first, my daughter was afraid but then she was so relaxed and she didn’t even know when the procedure was completed. At last, I want to thank you and say excellent service.
The dentist and assistant were very informative and friendly. The dental treatment was very gentle and without any discomfort. Thank you!
Awesome , professional, Pleasuring and warm. I haven’t been to a dentist for 5 years and both dentist & assistant were great. I’m looking forward to returning as the information was really clear as to what needs to be done in the next two treatments. The deep clean was magical and my teeth look great. Thanks so much !
Mel – What an amazing professional and confident dentist. Truly suited to the vacation. Best experience of dental treatment ever.
