It is very important to her that they learn what is going on inside their mouths and how to best prevent periodontal disease!

Kim comes from a large family of six who are always loud and in each other’s business – there’s never a dull moment! Her favorite hobby outside of work is scrapbooking her memories so she can go back and reminisce later about the good times in her life.

Now, she gets to do what she loves most: meet new people and help them achieve their perfect smile!
