Dr. Bryan Kim
Born and raised in Southern California, Dr. Kim was inspired at an early age to pursue a career in dentistry. His father is a practicing dentist and consequently Dr. Kim was immersed in the dental profession throughout his entire life. His motivation for following in his father’s footsteps was to relieve patient’s pain and to have personal contact with his patients.
Dr. Kim’s career took an abrupt turn when attending a professional meeting for the free pizza. At this meeting he was introduced to the field of Orofacial Pain Management. This field captured his attention as it offered the opportunity to meet his goals of relieving pain and developing rapport with his patients.
This dream became a reality when Dr. Kim was accepted into the full-time UCLA residency program for treating patients with headache, facial pain, jaw pain, and sleep disordered breathing.
Dr. Kim’s academic background includes:
Bachelor's Degree from UC Berkeley in Molecular and Cellular Biology.
Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from UCLA School of Dentistry.
Post-doc Residency in the UCLA Orofacial Pain & Dental Sleep Medicine Program where Dr. Kim was Chief Resident in his final year.
Dr. Kim has been involved in research at the undergraduate and graduate level. One of these projects was published in the prestigious academic journal Neuroscience.
