A Friendly Staff That Truly Cares

Del Mar family dentistry strives to make your visit, whether it be for a simple routine cleaning or a root canal, as stress-free as possible. Regular trips to the dentist should be a lifelong habit, not something you try to avoid. We also believe that you should never be in the dark about your oral health, which is why our staff takes the time to explain each diagnosis and treatment option so that you’re better equipped to make your own decisions about your oral health.

Dr. Robert C. Kim, DDS

If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist in Del Mar, CA who can also provide you and your family with advanced restorative and general dentistry, then you have discovered one of the most accomplished and talented in Dr. Robert C. Kim. However, his credentials and professional experience tell only part of the story.

While Dr. Kim’s history of producing consistently exceptional results for his patients has distinguished him as a dentist of superior skills, it is his warm demeanor, attention to detail, and gentle touch that have caused his reputation to spread among patients. It is rare to find a dentist who is able to serve such a diverse variety of dental needs at such a high level of quality, yet remain so eager to listen and respond to the individual questions, concerns, and goals of each patient.

Dr. Kim was raised in Sacramento, and has proudly practiced dentistry in San Diego for the past 13 years. He would welcome the opportunity to meet with you for a confidential, one-on-one consultation at Del Mar Center for Advanced Dentistry.

Education and Training

After completing his undergraduate degree in biology, Dr. Kim went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from the University of the Pacific, San Francisco, at the age of 23. Rather than immediately entering into practice, he chose to participate in an additional year of post-doctoral training, focusing on advanced surgical procedures and cosmetic dentistry.

Even now that he has established his own dental practice, Dr. Kim participates in hours of continuing education coursework and advanced training each year, with an emphasis on laser dentistry and his long-time passion, cosmetic dentistry. He is constantly striving to integrate new techniques and technologies that he feels will benefit his patients into the practice.

Teaching, Lecturing, and Publications

In addition to practicing at Del Mar Center for Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Kim has served as a faculty member of the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry, as well as a voluntary assistant clinical professor at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. He has presented many lectures on advanced dentistry and cosmetic dental treatments, with his audiences comprising both dental students and practicing dentists. He has been extensively published, and he has presented his published research findings at dental conventions throughout the nation.

Professional Affiliations

Dr. Kim is an active member of several prestigious professional organizations, including:

  • The Academy of Laser Dentistry
  • The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
  • The International Association of Comprehensive Aesthetics
  • The American Dental Association
  • The California Dental Association
  • The San Diego County Dental Society

Personal Life

When he isn’t providing outstanding dental care to patients or advancing his knowledge or the knowledge of others, Dr. Kim can probably be found enjoying the company of his wife and four children. He loves to relax by taking leisurely walks with his family and his golden retriever. Occasionally, he’ll hit the golf course or take advantage of his proximity to the beautiful Pacific Ocean by learning to surf. He also enjoys playing tennis, spending time with friends, and listening to music.

If you are in need of care from an experienced general, restorative, and cosmetic dentist in Del Mar, one who has unfaltering standards of excellence and a track record that proves it, then you owe it to yourself to schedule a consultation with Dr. Robert Kim today. Please contact Del Mar Center for Advanced Dentistry, and we will happily assist you in scheduling your appointment.
