Dr. Jimmy Kim graduated from the University of Toronto where he obtained an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology. He was then accepted to the University of Western Ontario's Schulich School of Dentistry. 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 also been actively involved in providing treatment in under-served and underprivileged parts of the world such as Honduras and The Dominican Republic through Medical Ministries International.
After completing his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, Dr. Kim continued his training in a General Practice Residency at the London Health Sciences Centre with significant focus on Pediatrics and Oral Surgery. This hospital-based program enabled him to learn and deal with emergencies, traumas and other unique 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. Dr. Kim 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 and Victoria and District Dental Society. In addition, he has been a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, 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 excellent treatment in a warm, friendly environment.
