Welcome to the pediatric dental office of Dr. Jaibum Kim.
Our office provides specialized dentistry for children and adolescents in a warm, caring, “child-friendly” environment. As pediatric dentists, our years of additional training after dental school prepared us for the unique dental needs of each child we serve. We focus on preventive care to help each child grow a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. Serving infants, children, teens and children with special health care needs in Katy, Houston, Richmond, Fulshear, TX and all surrounding cities.
Dr. Kim has been practicing all phases of pediatric dentistry in the Houston area since 2006. He believes in prevention of dental disease and compassionate care for all children. He believes in conservative and effective treatment when needed and has developed exceptional skills as a dental clinician over the years.
