Sara Kim, DMD
Dr. Yun (Sara) Kim is a board-certified pediatric dentist who joined our practice in 2022. A native of South Korea, she immigrated to the United States when she was seven years old, where she grew up in Suwanee, Georgia, about an hour outside of Atlanta. Drawn to both the challenges and rewards inherent in the dental profession, she earned her dental degree from Tufts University after studying microbiology as an undergraduate at the University of Georgia. She also completed a pediatric dental residency at New York University’s Langone Medical Center.
Dr. Kim loves working as a dentist because every day on the job — and every patient — is unique. A kid at heart herself, she chose to specialize in pediatric dentistry because she has so much fun working with children, who, as she says, are spontaneous, resilient, and really funny! She especially enjoys opportunities to serve children with special needs and help their parents develop customized treatment approaches to support their future well-being. For all patients, she places a strong emphasis on oral health education for both parent and child so that each patient gets to develop strong oral health hygiene habits from a young age.
Outside of the office, Dr. Kim loves to spend time with her husband (a dental hygienist!) and their two rescue dogs. Together, they enjoy hiking, traveling, and exploring new cities.
