On Being a Dentist
The fact that people trust me with their dental health means a lot to me. That responsibility encourages me to do my best as their healthcare partner, by staying on top of current developments in dental medicine, and being humble and honest.
Being a dentist means I am fighting disease, helping people get healthy, and improving the way they feel about themselves. I am both increasing the enjoyment they get from life and benefiting society at the same time. That’s very rewarding.
It’s essential my patients and I develop a strong bond, based on mutual trust and respect. They need to know I am here to serve and help them, and that I will always do my best to make sure their dental health is at optimal levels. I strive to develop a rapport with people starting with their first visit, and then strengthening that each time they are here. Talking with patients, and hearing their life stories, is always fascinating, and I love the friendships that naturally develop.
Education and Continuing Education
I attended both the University of Louisville in Kentucky and the Health and Science Center in San Antonio, TX, and have a Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD). I’ve been practicing dentistry since 2003, and love being a field where my mind is constantly challenged. There are ongoing developments in dental treatment processes and technology, and I endeavor to stay at the leading edge of knowledge in these areas.
By pursuing continuing education (CE), I ensure my patients continue to receive the best care and treatment options available. Particular areas of CE that I’ve sought out include dental implants, CAD / CAM dentistry, dental surgery, IV sedation, and cosmetic dentistry.
I’m a native of Seoul, South Korea. Now I live in Bellingham, with my wife and three children. When I’m not caring for my patients, my family is my top priority. I also enjoy biking the local trails, and playing tennis and soccer, then sitting down to some excellent Korean food. I’m passionate about teaching and education, so I translate books from English to Korean, as well as teach ancient history.
