Michael Kim, DDS


Dr. Michael Kim arrived at the first tee on January 23, 1961. He spent his formative years in Ohio and Connecticut. As a teenager he developed a keen interest in moving small white objects around with pieces of metal. Unfortunately his dream of becoming a professional golfer never came to pass, so he decided to bite into a career in orthodontics instead.

Because of his love of the Cleveland Browns, Dr. Kim chose to pursue his undergraduate, dental and orthodontic degrees at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He completed his formal training in 1987 and decided to leave Cleveland and settle in Hamden, CT.

Unfortunately, in 1996, the REAL Browns followed in Dr. Kim’s footsteps and departed from Cleveland, thereby vacating their place in Dr. Kim’s heart. While he has yet to find a new favorite NFL team, Dr. Kim has been the proud leader of the amazing Braceasaurus Team for nearly 30 years.

When he is not busy straightening teeth, Dr. Kim continues to work on straightening out his golf game. He also enjoys watching UCONN basketball and “Doctor Who”, and also hitting the ski slopes with his golf orphans, Alex and Austen, and his golf widow, Carol.
