Meet Dr. K

"Experience, skill, and compassion go hand-in-hand when providing exceptional patient care. As a certified specialist in pediatric dentistry, I stay up-to-date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options and standards of care for my young patients. As a doctor, I recognize that my patients are unique individuals and their parents have placed a great deal of trust in me and my team. That is just one reason why I value each and every patient and parent relationship." -Dr. K

Dr. K's Professional Care Philosophy

Dr. K's professional care philosophy is to emphasize the importance of building fun, safe, trusting, and respectful relationships with his patients and their caregivers, while also forging teamwork decision-making to ensure the highest quality preventive and restorative dentistry. He's a huge advocate that dental care for children should be as comfortable, pleasant, and stress-free as possible, for both patient and parents. This approach can sometimes take time and patience, but just might change the way you and your child think about dentistry- for the better!
