About Us

Highly-trained Team

Our entire dental team focuses on comprehensive family dentistry. Every dentist at SoCal Smiles is trained in advanced cosmetic dentistry, porcelain restorations, and biocompatible dental materials that are safe to use in your mouth and teeth.


We explore all treatment options before performing any major work like extractions or root canals. We believe that less is more when it comes to healthcare and performing treatment on your teeth. We understand that the best treatment is the most conservative and preserving for your natural teeth.

Modern Concepts

SoCal Smiles’ entire team is Invisalign certified and we are one of the leading Invisalign providers in the nation. Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world making it even easier to get the perfect smile.

Great Team Work

In healthcare there are so many treatment options out there but all too often they are all governed by the dentists’ and doctors’ idea of excellent healthcare. At SoCal Smiles, our philosophies are based on sound clinical research, a team approach, and modern concepts on preventative and conservative dental care.

Dr. James Kim is a fantastic dentist. He listens to any of your questions or concerns. His work is impeccable. He does not want any of his patients to ever be in any discomfort. He will fix or tweak any problem promptly. I discovered Dr. Kim 6mos ago. I've had a lot of work done due to old fillings and old teeth. I highly recommend him!!

All of the staff and Dr. James were incredibly nice, polite, and helpful. It was a great first experience.

Great staff, they explain work to be done, billing and take good care of you. Dr James's work is very good, nice guy too!

Steven B.

Dr. James Kim and his whole staff really make going to the dentist an enjoyable experience. I had 2 full crowns replaced and a cavity taken care of. No pain whatsoever.

Sarah B.

I've been coming to SoCal Smiles for quite some time and have experienced many turnovers in Dentists, Management, and/or Ownership. Each time, my dental experience surpassed the previous and I must say today's visit did not prove any different. I was a bit cautious with SoCal Smiles being taken over by new dentists, but I love love love Dr. James and his staff! Dr. James is by far the BEST Dentist I have experienced. His calm demeanor puts you at ease and his skill is bar none! Needed to replace a crown and from the moment I walked in to leaving after the procedure, I commented, "That was the best crown work I've ever experienced!" I didn't even feel the shots! His gentleness administering the Novocain was masterful! Looking forward to my next visit where he'll place the permanent crown. Thank you, Dr. James! You're the greatest and I love your staff, too!

Lauren was great and it was nice to meet Dr James.

Richard R.

Dr. Kim always does a great job. He corrected some of the work that a previous dentist had done improperly. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an honest and skilled dentist.

Megan K.

I had a filling crack/ fall out that had been put in about 15 years ago, Dr. Kim and the team were able to see me at MY earliest opportunity and fixed me right up in less than an hour. Thank you!!

Erin F.

Everyone was so helpful and the whole experience was wonderful. Glad my daughter found Dr Kim.

Nancy G.

Very happy with my first experience at Socal Smiles. The staff was friendly and courteous. Dr Kim explained to me in a very understanding way my problem and diagnosis. I will definitely recommend Socal Smiles.

Brian M.

I loved how they made my dental visit quick and painless. All staff members were friendly and made sure I was comfortable. They are very detail orientated which I consider one of the top 3 things any professional business must have. I loved the dental work I got done. I usually am scared of going to the dentists because I have a low tolerance for teeth pain. But the cleaning was painless and very thorough. Its needless to say my teeth are very happy and clean 🙂 I've been looking for a dentist and without a doubt would refer Dr. Kim to anyone who is looking as well.
