Dental Assistants

Kim, Winnipeg Registered Dental Assistant


Kim | Registered Dental Assistant

I graduated from CDI college in 2012 with a diploma in Dental Assisting. I have been with Academy Dental Group since 2019. Being able to help people is what drew me into dentistry. With over 10 years of direct patient care experience it is the connections I develop with patients that I truly love most about this field. Aside from the clinical component, communication and patient comfort is of the utmost importance.

I decided to further my education and completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience in 2022. Outside of the dental field I also work in Cancer research and do volunteer work at a nonprofit and charitable organization. In my spare time I enjoy working out, travelling, trying new restaurants and tasting culturally diverse foods or out and about with friends and family.
