Meet Dr. Richard Kim

Dr Richard Kim, Dentist CartersvilleDr. Kim’s passion for dentistry stems from the dental humanitarian mission trips his father would take him on as a young boy. Having grown up as a Korean “Kiwi” in Auckland, New Zealand, he was shocked to observe disparities in access to healthcare, especially in the realm of oral health.

My goal is for our patients to have the most positive experience possible. I look forward to meeting you and finding out how I can help you accomplish your dental health goals.”

Dr. Kim, DDS

Choosing the Best Education

Inspired by these experiences, Dr. Kim obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, followed by a General Practice Residency (GPR) at The Brooklyn Hospital. In addition, he completed a Master of Public Health (MPH) under the Health Care Management track at The Harvard School of Public Health. While at Harvard, he explored solutions for improving oral health in the population level.

Along with receiving his GPR certificate, his postdoctoral training also included receiving his Executive Practice Management certificate from the University of Florida, College of Dentistry. Currently, he is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) and of the International Congress of Oral Implantology (FICOI).
