Dr Kimiko (Kim) Yoshinaga grew up in Newcastle and graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Sydney University.
Kim enjoys many aspects of dentistry and relates warmly to her patients.
Her vision has always been to have a warm, friendly, comfortable practice that offers exceptional care with a personal touch.
Kim has years of experience working in orthodontics and an exceptional level of training in paediatrics (children’s dentistry) and special needs. Having her own child with special needs gives her great understanding of the challenges involved.
Composite resin aesthetic dentistry is also another interest area of hers. Make sure you ask about your smile makeover possibilities! You and Kim will find it rewarding.
At home she has four beautiful children which keep her busy. Kim also enjoys playing the violin, though there is not really a spare minute to talk of!
