Meet the Staff


When calling our Hazelwood office, Jan is the kind voice you will often first hear. She is our office coordinator at the Hazelwood location. Jan has been working in the dental field for over twenty years and with Dr. Kim for fifteen years. When she isn’t keeping us organized, she can be found riding her bike, hiking, swimming or shopping.


Our office coordinator in Dardenne Prairie, Chico is no stranger to the dental field, as her father was a dentist. She ensures that families understand the treatment plans for every child. Chico enjoys seeing and knowing our patients are getting the best treatment. She enjoys gardening, reading, hiking with her dogs and spending time with her two grandchildren.


Megan is one of our dental assistants and the team member that has been with our team the longest. She has been in the dental business for sixteen years and with Dr. Kim for fifteen years. Megan loves working with kids and watching them grow. On the weekends, Megan can be found boating on the lake or eating Mexican food.


Did you know that a crocodile cannot stick its tongue out? Lynn, one of our dental assistants, is full of fun dental facts. She did her dental assisting internship with Dr. Kim and has stayed with us ever since. Lynn is the first to admit that she wasn’t the best dental patient as a kid and enjoys making the dental experience much more pleasant than what she remembers.
