Each year the Northern Virginia Magazine discovers which dentists are trusted by other local dentists, and this year Dr. Duke Kim of Ballston Dental Arts is in this elite group of dental talent. Since dentists cannot work on their own mouths, they are forced to trust other professionals. Wouldn’t you like to know who these dentists trust? That’s what Northern Virginia Magazine reveals each year, and Dr. Kim is consistently at the top of the list.
The November issue featured the list of top dentists. The award is peer-generated and not attached to any advertising through the magazine. With a print circulation of 40,000 and reaching more than 150,000 readers, many people are familiar with the magazine’s “Best of” features.
Ballston Dental Arts is located in Arlington, VA just across the street from the Ballston Metro Station. Dr. Kim has a general practice that balances both health and cosmetic dentistry. "Everything we do takes into consideration what is best for that person,” said Dr. Kim. As a skilled artist, Dr. Kim looks at the finished result as a work of art.
One of the reasons Dr. Kim is consistently awarded in the “Top Dentists” is that he invests in education and technology. He is one of fewer than 800 dentists in the country offering laser gum surgery, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. This new procedure targets diseased tissue but leaves the healthy tissue untouched, making traditional surgery with scalpel and stitches unnecessary. LANAP also helps to stimulate new bone growth and may help save teeth that would normally be extracted due to bone loss.
Northern Virginia residents are recognized among “America’s most educated” with close to 70 percent earning bachelors, graduate or professional degrees. Dr. Kim is no exception. He received his Dental Degree from Georgetown University Dental School and studied at NYU Institute for Advanced Studies in Dental Aesthetics. His advanced Masters and Fellowship M.A.G.D.was awarded to less than one percent of all general dentists.
