Meet Your Renton Dentist
Sam DK Kim, DMD
Dr. Sam DK Kim is a military veteran and general dentist specializing in prosthetic dentistry. He completed a 3-year postgraduate residency program in prosthodontics at the NOVA Southeastern University in Florida. During his residency, Dr. Kim obtained hundreds of hours of training in all areas of dentistry, including implant surgery. Now a certified prosthodontist and dentist in Renton, Dr. Kim loves being able to provide a comprehensive list of dental services to local families and individuals.
Dentistry wasn’t originally on his career list, but Dr. Kim says he became interested after seeing his parents suffer with their own teeth so much in their older age. Today, his favorite aspect of dentistry is making people’s dreams come true -- like helping patients who have dealt with failing or missing teeth for years smile with confidence once again.
Dr. Kim moved to Seattle and opened SDK Dental Care of Renton in 2010. When he is not at work, he spends most of his time with his lovely wife and their three children. He works out every other day and enjoys taking his family different places to take photos. In fact, Dr. Kim likes photography so much he says he’d like it to be his next career after retiring from dentistry!
Your Renton dentist is also passionate about giving back to the community. He and his family participate in local charities through their church in Renton, providing food and clothing to homeless centers in Renton and Seattle. He and his wife also make monthly donations to sponsor a child in Africa, an experience he calls truly humbling.
