Meet Dr. Bora Kim

Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

Seeing our children get excited about coming for a dental check-up is truly a blessing as a pediatric dentist. These wonderful experiences motivate our children to take care of their teeth and maintain healthy, glowing smiles.

Her experiences in working with children and their parents in different dental settings throughout her career allow her to guide each family with a comprehensive dental plan that is tailored to each child in a way that is very thorough yet easy to understand.

Have tongue tie or lip tie?

A frenectomy is the removal of connective tissue (called the frenum) from under the tongue (Lingual Frenectomy) or the upper gums (Maxillary Frenectomy). If your infant is struggling with breastfeeding, particularly with 'latching on', or if your older child faces specific challenges with speech, eating, or orthodontic alignment, we may recommend frenectomy as an option. New technologies have made frenectomies a safe and convenient option for even very young children.

Why Should Your Kids See a Pediatric Dentist?

At Glowing Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, our pediatric dentists combine their extensive expertise with a deep commitment to caring for infants, children, and adolescents. From the moment your child’s first tooth appears through to their teenage years, we’re here to nurture a healthy smile and address the unique challenges of growing up.

We’re also here to gently support your child through common developmental stages, such as thumb sucking, pacifier use, and feeding challenges. As experts in pediatric dental care, we delight in understanding and caring for the nuances of growing smiles! For more insights or to have your questions answered, please visit our Dental FAQ page.

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to penetrate deep into tissues, stimulating cellular activity and promoting healing. In pediatric dentistry, it is used to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and speed up recovery from various dental procedures. This non-invasive therapy is safe for children and can be an effective adjunct to traditional dental treatments.

The Benefits of Red Light Therapy for Your Child’s Dental Health

Red Light Therapy offers numerous benefits for pediatric patients. It helps in reducing discomfort and swelling after dental procedures, which can make recovery faster and more comfortable for your child. Additionally, this therapy enhances tissue repair and regeneration, leading to healthier gums and improved overall oral health. By incorporating Red Light Therapy into our practice, we aim to provide a more comfortable and effective dental experience for your child.

Treating the Whole Child

At Glowing Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we believe in caring for the whole child. Our practice goes beyond traditional dental care, emphasizing comprehensive treatments that support your child's overall well-being.

What sets us apart? We create a gentle, fun, and supportive environment, ensuring that every visit is a positive experience for your child. For instance, we utilize advanced technologies like laser therapy to minimize discomfort and enhance healing, and we pay special attention to airway health, which can impact speech and sleep. Our approach to dental care is designed to nurture not just healthy teeth, but a healthy, happy child.
