Singing Dentist!

Dr. Kim is often known as a singing dentist as you might hear him humming while treating patients. Music is part of his life and he feels very fortunate to share his music together with his family. Here is a performance of his family in Austria.

Dr. Jimmy Kim

Dr. Jimmy Kim was raised in Toronto and therefore has never strayed away from being a faithful Maple Leafs fan even after moving around many different places.  He graduated from the University of Toronto where he obtained an Honours degree in Human Biology. He was then accepted to the University of Western Ontario School of Dentistry. During his years as a dental student, he served as vice-president and sports representative of his class. When graduating from UWO with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree, the school recognized him with an award for excellence in pediatric and special needs dentistry. He has been also actively involved in providing treatment in under-served and underprivileged areas such as Honduras and The Dominican Republic with Medical Ministries International.

After completing his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, Dr. Kim continued his training in a General Practice Residency at London Health Sciences Centre with significant focuses on Pediatrics and Oral Surgery. This hospital-based program enabled him to learn and deal with emergencies, traumas and other extensive dental treatments. Dr. Kim’s firm belief of providing patients with the most current, most optimal treatment encouraged him to further his training at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Dayton, Ohio, for two more years. He extensively widened the scope of his dentistry, gaining experience in IV conscious sedation, dental implants, and impacted wisdom teeth extractions, just to name a few. He then practiced in a private dental office in Barrie, Ontario prior to relocating to Victoria in 2008.

Dr. Kim is a member of good standing of the Canadian Dental Association, College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia, British Columbia Dental Association, Victoria and District Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry. In addition, he has been a member of the Toronto Implant Study Club, Victoria Implant Study Club and completed the Hands-On-Training Implant Mini-Residency Program in Yorba Linda, California. Through his intensive dental residency and fellowship experiences, as well as through his active involvement in continuing education programs, he is committed to providing his patients with the most excellent treatment in a warm, friendly environment.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Kim enjoys singing, playing sports and performing all kinds of different musical instruments including acoustic guitar, electric bass, conga drums, and violin. His vocal and electric bass performances were aired on the national TV program 100 Huntley Street before moving to Victoria. Now that he has four sons who play competitive hockey, he enjoys having many more Leafs fans around him.   He also enjoys performing music with his family and spending quality time with them.
