At Jen Kim: Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we are committed to providing a welcoming dental office for your entire family. In addition to the expanded services we offer, such as dental implants and veneers, we also provide general and family dentistry to our neighbors in Kirkland, WA.
Preventive Cleanings and Examinations
Preventive care is the foundation of everything we do. A healthy mouth that is free from decay and periodontal disease enhances your appearance and provides stability for any restorative or cosmetic treatment that you might want or need.
Scientists are just beginning to understand the connection that exists between your dental health and your overall health, but they have confirmed that this connection exists. We take your health seriously, and we respect the trust that you have placed in us as part of your family’s health care team.
Professional cleanings are an excellent starting point for restoring your dental health. During these cleanings, we’ll remove the traces of plaque and tartar that brushing leaves behind and pay close attention to the health of your gums. Dr. Kim will also carefully examine your teeth for signs of dental caries and other disease. To detect oral cancer as early as possible, we use Velscope, a state-of-the-art cancer detection technology that identifies precancerous cells long before they are visible to the naked eye.
Cleanings and exams are also your opportunity to discuss your concerns about your dental health with Dr. Kim. She’ll take the time to sit with you and answer your questions. We know that information and education are powerful and necessary for you to make appropriate decisions about your health.
Dental Care for the Whole Family
Dr. Kim welcomes your entire family to her Kirkland dental office – even the youngest members! We make it easy for your family to get the care they need in one office from a dentist you can trust. Dr. Kim’s friendly and easy-going nature makes it easy for kids to feel comfortable with her, and she knows other ways to help put kids at ease.
Early dental care is essential for a number of reasons:
- Dr. Kim can track your child’s dental development and catch problems in their earliest possible stages, when treatment is simpler and less invasive.
- Dr. Kim can advise you and your child about how to develop good home care habits, building the foundation for a lifetime of good dental habits.
- Seeing the dentist early helps make dental visits a normal part of life and reduces fear and anxiety around dental care. In particular, a friendly and kind dentist, like Dr. Kim, helps kids build positive associations around dental care.
