Our People

Dr. Bokhung “Angelina” Kim

Originally from South Korea, I moved to Pennsylvania at 14, and my early dental experiences were less than pleasant. But, I found a kind dentist who changed my perspective on dentistry, and I’m here to do the same for you.

What I love most is connecting with patients on a personal level. Over the course of my decade-long tenure in the field of dentistry, I have garnered a reputation for employing a gentle and efficient approach. Having been through many dental procedures, I understand your anxieties, but with me, you’re in safe hands - just like family.
