Dr. Kim, as our patients like to call her, grew up in Brownsville, TX and became a licensed dental assistant upon graduating from South Texas High School for Health Professions. She worked as a dental assistant while attending the University of Texas and it was at that time that she realized her love for dentistry. She continued her trek toward Southeast Texas with a stop at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston where she met Dr. Jaynes. Since receiving her dental degree in 2008, she and Dr. Jaynes married in January 2010. They joined our team in the summer of 2009 and we’re proud to have them.
Dr. Kim is fluent in Spanish and really enjoys seeing children. Her passion for intricate cosmetic cases has driven her toward continuous postgraduate studies covering the use of cutting-edge technology and techniques. She also enjoys traveling, shopping, and the occasional fishing trip with Dr. Jaynes.
