Granada Hills OrthodontistDr. Paul Jay Kim
Dr. Kim takes a compassionate and educational approach to dentistry to ensure his patients feel comfortable with the treatment choices they make. It’s important to Dr. Kim that his patients feel they are part of the process and progress with their orthodontic treatment.
A Santa Barbara native, Dr. Kim moved to South Korea with his family at a young age. Growing up he had the opportunity to receive education in Seoul, Oregon, Virginia, New York and California where he ultimately chose to call home again.
Dr. Kim's broad experiences gave him an appreciation for meeting and forming relationships with people, and helped shape his relational style when it comes to patient care.
Dr. Kim is a certified Invisalign orthodontist and started his studies at the prestigious Cornell University where he majored in chemistry and chemical biology. After obtaining his undergraduate degree, he decided to pursue a career in dentistry.
He began his dental education at UCLA where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. Shortly after, he made the decision to specialize in orthodontics and further his education at the Ohio State University where he received his Master of Science in Orthodontics.
Dr. Kim has a learner’s spirit and continually keeps up with the latest orthodontic treatments. During his residency he took on additional night clinical duties for more exposure to numerous orthodontic methods. His passion for mastering the latest and greatest techniques has allowed him to provide innovative orthodontic care to his patients.
In addition to orthodontics, Dr. Kim also has a love for traveling. It was this passion that helped him make the decision to pursue dentistry and orthodontics. He enjoyed meeting new people from diverse backgrounds and establishing relationships with them. This is an aspect he also loves about dentistry.
When he’s not at the office or traveling, he enjoys physical activities such as tennis and swimming. During the pandemic, he picked up indoor hobbies such as cooking, reading, and playing PC games.
Dr. Kim is also a mentor at the Korean-American Scientist and Engineer Association where he helps young professionals with similar backgrounds as him to develop their interests and careers in the science field.
Dr. Kim’s devotion to his patients and orthodontics make him a great addition to the TLC for Smiles team. He recognizes the frustrations patients can have in understanding their treatment plans and makes sure they feel confident about their oral health before leaving the office.
