Dr. James Taeyun Kim
James first became interested in helping people smile with confidence when he was a student volunteer at local hospitals in Burlington and Hamilton. He learned how oral health and general health can affect each other. This prompted him to pursue studies in Health Sciences at McMaster University. Then, he completed his training at University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry to become a dentist where he also received the Clinical Excellence in Dental Photography Award.
James believes in enhancing patient care by using up to date technologies like C.E.R.E.C (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceremics) and communicating diagnoses effectively with patients by using dental photography techniques. James also participates in continuing education programs for dentists frequently so that he can provide optimal care for his patients.
Outside of dentistry, James engages in creative activities through music and photography. He enjoys playing the violin and viola in ensembles and capturing cityscape photos while traveling.
James is a member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, Canadian Dental Association and Ontario Dental Association.
