Dr. Maria Kim
Maria Kim, D.M.D.
Welcome! I’m Dr. Maria Kim, a California board-certified dentist who is proud to serve my local community in Arcadia, CA, as well as Pasadena, Monrovia, and the surrounding San Gabriel Valley.
I come from an extended family of dentists who love and respect what they do. It was only natural that I follow in my parents’ footsteps when choosing a career to help people. After graduating from UCLA with a B.S. in Biology and B.A. in Art History, I earned my Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and have been practicing for more than 20 years.
I enjoy getting to know people by listening. Each patient’s teeth tell a story and it is often related to their physical and mental health. My priority is to teach the connection between your oral health as it relates to overall health. I take time with each patient to learn about your history and dental needs, so we can come up with a treatment plan that’s tailored to you.
Outside of the office, you can find me teaching yoga in Sierra Madre or spending time with my husband and fur babies.
