Stella Kim, DDS

Dr. Stella Kim is a graduate of the UCSF School of Dentistry and has practiced in San Francisco and the Bay Area since the start of her professional dental career. Prior to entering dentistry, Dr. Kim spent over a decade as a biomedical researcher in Los Angeles and San Diego, where she worked primarily on drug discovery and translational medicine. Eventually, however, she felt the desire to help people directly through her work on a daily basis, and she decided to make the switch to dentistry.

Dr. Kim is a member of the California Dental Association (CDA), the American Dental Association (ADA), the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), the San Francisco Dental Society (SFDS), the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM), and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI).

She is an Invisalign preferred provider and has implantology certification from Hiossen’s Advanced Dental Implant Research and Education Institute (AIC). In addition, she was one of the first dentists in San Francisco to be certified in the Chao Pinhole® surgical technique, an alternative to traditional gum grafting that can reverse receding gums much faster and with significantly less discomfort.

Outside of work, Dr. Kim loves hosting dinner parties with her husband serving organic food made from scratch. She also sings and plays musical instruments, and enjoys attending live concerts.
