Apple Valley Dental


Dear Valued Patients and Friends,

We have been monitoring the recent developments with Covid-19. In light of some recent guidance from the California Dental Association, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all non-essential dental appointments for at least the next 2 weeks until the end of March. All dental hygiene appointments, restorative appointments (fillings, crowns, partials, implants) will need to be postponed. We will continue to be available as needed for dental emergencies. We will be in touch to reschedule once it is safe to resume patient care.

CDA does not make this request lightly, and it is being done out of an abundance of caution during this historic public health emergency. As health care professionals, we all have a role to play in "flattening the curve" in order to follow sound, scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus.

Our collective actions now will determine the spread of COVID-19, and this recommendation is being made after careful deliberation and in consultation with state and national public health experts. We believe by taking these extraordinary precautions, dentists can make a difference in helping to preserve the limited supply of personal protective equipment critical for emergency dental care and frontline health care personnel responding to the pandemic. We recognize the gravity of these extreme measures and are sensitive to the economic impact of such actions.

We send our love to all of you during this historic pandemic. We value each and every one of you and want you all to stay healthy.


Samuel Kim, DDS and staff

Great dentist and his staff👍
Since moving to Apple valley, from Alta Loma, 12 YRS AGO, my wife and I have searched the geographic area hoping to locate a good DENTIST. There are many DENTIST available but sorry to say, most we found inadequate and GREEDY. After an extensive search via the internet, and reading numerous reviews I found Dr Kim, at Apple valley Dental, most reviews for Dr Kim, AND HIS STAFF, were 5 STAR! I made my appointment and seen him today. Dr's staff I found to be ALL and MORE deserving than described by the reviews. After x-rays my consultation with Dr Kim, confirmed my decision to check out this OFFICE was the correct one. I trust his opinion and Will follow his advice as much as possible. I met Dee, and Jordan, finding both friendly, helpful and professional
Great staff, nice doctor. Everyone seems to care . I would highly recommend to any one needing dental care.
