What Sets Us Apart
Dr. Kim and Dr. Vinh share the same dental education as both orthodontists attended MCG and UAB. Having a similar treatment philosophy and passion for caring for their patients, Dr. Kim jumped at the opportunity to join Dr. Vinh as his partner in January of 2016. She is fluent in Korean, which is another valuable addition to the already multi-cultural practice. Now the practice has doctors and staff who can communicate with their patients in English, Vietnamese, Korean, Spanish, and Chinese. Dr. Kim is very excited to be practicing at Orthodontics of Atlanta and look forward to creating beautiful smiles for her patients.
Commitment from Doctor Kim
“I promise my patients that your smile will be my #1 priority the moment you walk into our office until your treatment is completed. I feel blessed that my profession involves creating beautiful smiles for my patients, and along the way, giving them the functional bites that will last a lifetime. The best part of being an orthodontist is the interaction I have with my patients and the opportunity to educate them on the different aspects of their oral health. As your orthodontist, I will always do what is best for your oral health and care for you as I would for my own family.“
