Patient Reviews

The feedback we receive from our valued patients is critical to our success

  • I have visited this dental office for cleanings. The way the office staff & doctor treated me was amazing and the cleaning process is extremely good and now I feel I found my home dentist after years trying with several other dentists. Advanced equipment, medical process and professional staff. My teeth cleaning process was simple, easy and relaxing, as simple as watching a movie. I have not faced any sensitivity / ache issues that I generally get with other places. As the place was so good, immediately, I took my wife and two kids. Guess what, the kids like it also! Smiles by the Sea Del Mar rocks!!!!!!

  • Beautiful location and very friendly staff. I have always been scared about shots in my gums and never got fillings done due to the fear. I really appreciate Dr Kim explaining everything before the procedure. Did not feel a thing during the procedure. I am glad I found this place. Highly recommend him to my friends and family.

  • I have been going here since I moved out of Los Angeles. My first visit was to fix a crown which came off. As soon as I walked through the door, I didn't have to wait too long to see the dentist and once I did he was very welcoming and walked me through what he would be doing that day. He fixed the issue with the crown and also did a complete checkup and gave me a detailed report of all the teeth. I visited multiple times for fillings and every time I visit the staff is incredibly professional and friendly, and they always remind me of appointments. My daughter had her  regular dental checkup and cleaning and she loved the care given by the team. We are happy that we finally found a great dentist. We will be going to Smiles by the Sea for all our dental needs.

  • Look no further for your dental needs! I avoided the dentist for 6 long years, not because I was afraid of what my mouth might entail, but because I didn't know a dentist I could trust! Dr. Kim and his staff are beyond trustworthy. They are friendly, caring, respectful, and they truly want to help you. Dr. Kim explains EVERYTHING! Which I love considering I know nothing about dentistry. The front desk is great! I appreciate the appointment reminder phone calls because let's be honest... It's very easy to forget you have to go the dentist! And the wonderful dentist assistants (sorry I don't remember your names...) are the best! Although my dental work is complete for now I plan on making Smiles by the Sea my dental home (now if only I could convince my husband to go)! 😉

  • I recently had minor issue with my teeth and I was able to get a next day appointment (staff called me back same day after patient cancellation).  Before they started treatment, the dentist explained my problems in a clear manner. I have never seen a doctor care so much about my problems. The staff also explained what is covered by my insurance plan, how much I'll need to pay.  I really liked the overall experience.I'll certainly go back and recommend to anyone who prefers doctors who spend time to explain and educate their patients.

  • I visited Dr. Kim's dental office recently for my dental appointment and was extremely pleased with the care I have received.  Dr. Kim is very professional, patient, thorough and explained at each step about the procedure. My fillings were done in a sophisticated manner. Dr. Kim was very meticulous and thorough.  I got my fillings done on that day as well and very happy with it. I would highly recommend my friends and family to Smile Designs Dentistry.
