Dr. Calvin Kim
Olympia dentist Calvin Kim
Dr. Kim, is a 2000 graduate of Loma Linda University and considers it a privilege to provide quality dental care to the residents of Thurston County. . He has a fantastic staff and is devoted to providing the kindest and most gentle dental care to his patients. One of the things that Dr. Kim enjoys doing is meeting patients who are fearful or have a lot of anxiety about getting dental work done. By explaining each procedure step by step and providing very gentle dental care, it is his goal to help fearful patients to overcome their anxiety and eventually come to enjoy visiting the dentist. Over his years of experience, Dr. Kim has also found that many people who have not seen a dentist for years and have neglected their teeth are often embarassed to even come and see a dentist. Dr. Kim loves to meet these kinds of patients and by making them feel comfortable and assuring them that this is not uncommon, he loves to help patients to overcome being self conscious and help them to restore their smile! He finds this to be the rewarding part of dentistry!
Dr. Kim is married to his beautiful wife Amy and they have 2 beautiful little girls named Charis and Caia whom they adore and a spoiled King Charles Cavalier named Tamarind!
One of Dr. Kim's passion is ministry. He was the co-founder of a ministry called Arme Bible Camp (check it out at armeministries.org), a ministry designed to teach people how to study the Bible, pray, and witness. Dr. Kim is also the co-founder of a non-profit organization called F5 Challenge (check it out at f5challenge.org). This organization seeks to improve the lives of others by promoting a healthy, active lifestyle. He is also very active at his church where he loves to serve. His love for mission work has taken him on over a dozen mission trips to different parts of the world. His favorite trip which was life changing was an opportunity to go into the communist country of North Korea! In his spare time, he loves to hang out w/ his family, rock climb, train for triathlons and is an IRONMAN!
