Dr. Amy Kim

General & Cosmetic Dentist

Achieve Optimal Oral Health

“Your comfort and satisfaction is my #1 priority. I am here for YOU!”

At a young age, Dr. Kim was inspired by her family dentist in Green Bay to pursue dentistry as a career. She went on to receive her dental degree in 2003 from Marquette University, School of Dentistry in Milwaukee.

Following her graduation, Dr. Kim advanced her clinical knowledge and skills in post-doctorate programs at VA Hospitals in Minneapolis and Los Angeles. Here she had the opportunity to teach and mentor dental students, gain valuable experience by working with specialists in all areas of dentistry, and learned 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 of the latest techniques dentistry has to offer. She focuses on getting to know each and every patient. Dr. Kim feels the keys to successful dental care are to understand your patients’ fears, concerns, and to ensure their comfort. Her goal is to instill open communication, calmness, and confidence in her patients. Due to her artistic eye, she enjoys cosmetic dentistry but believes, first and foremost, in achieving optimal oral health.

Currently, Dr. Kim is taking advanced courses with Spear, which focuses on providing comprehensive treatment to patients to target underlying problems and provide long-lasting results.

In her free time, Dr. Kim enjoys spending time with her family, photography, cooking, traveling, and is always working on some creative project.

Helping patients is our passion, no matter what their smile needs may be. Take a look at what some of our current and previous patients think of Carol Stream & Elgin Dental Associates.

“This practice is phenomenal with children. I have been taking my daughter here for 6 years and today she had a baby tooth pulled. Dr. Johnny and the hygienist were amazing! It was a positive and painless experience for my daughter. I definitely recommend their office for pediatric care.”

Jenyl K

“The real star of the show was Jen, my dental hygienist. She noted my anxieties and was so understanding and gentle with the whole process. She never made me feel bad about neglecting my oral care and just said she was happy I was there now. If you have any fear about going to the dentist, I HIGHLY recommend Carol Stream Dental.”

Casey T

“I absolutely love everyone at the office! Everyone is so welcoming and caring. They all seem to love what they do. They are very professional and explain everything in detail. I no longer live in Elgin but I will continue to come here because of how amazing they are.”
