Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Kim is originally from Seoul in South Korea, but her father had such high standards for her future that he brought their whole family to the United States. He worked very hard to put her through college and inspired her to become a healthcare professional. She definitely got her strong work ethic from him and is very grateful for it!

Where Did You Study Dentistry?
