(Carol Stream Dental Associates)
At a young age, Dr. Amy Johnson Kim was inspired by her family dentist back home in Green Bay and knew she wanted to pursue dentistry as a career. On her path, she first attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She went on to receive her dental degree in 2003 from Marquette University, School of Dentistry in Milwaukee. Following graduation, Dr. Kim chose to advance her clinical knowledge and skills in post-doctorate programs at VA Hospitals in Minneapolis and Los Angeles. It was there she had the opportunity to teach and mentor dental students, gain invaluable experience working with specialists in all areas of dentistry, and most importantly, learn how to safely and competently care for patients with complex medical and dental conditions.
Over the years, Dr. Kim has treated patients in private practice and kept abreast on the latest techniques dentistry has to offer in order to provide her patients with the best possible care. With an artistic eye, she enjoys cosmetic dentistry, but believes first and foremost in achieving optimal oral health. She focuses on getting to know each and every patient, and feels that understanding their fears and concerns and ensuring they are comfortable are the keys to successful dentistry. Dr. Kim’s goal is to instill open communication, calmness, and confidence in her patients and she strives for excellence and satisfaction in everything she does.
In her free time, Dr. Kim enjoys spending time with her family, photography, cooking, traveling and is always working on some creative project.
