Patient Information

Dr. Shim and staff are dedicated to providing you with a pleasant visit and results that you’re proud to show off. Our administrative staff is ready to help you with questions about scheduling, financial policy and insurance, to make that part of the process as simple as possible.


Be Prepared to Stay Awhile

Dr. Shim’s primary interest is to ensure the long-term dental health of our patients. The fact is, most of our patients are long-term, If you choose to join us, we’ll take a very thorough approach to your individual dental health care needs. For example, your initial exam will be very thorough – about one hour. Your first cleaning will be very thorough as well – again, about an hour.

I know that seems like a long time to sit in “the chair,” but it really works. Because it helps us get a better picture of your needs.
