Dr. Chin Kim

Dr. Chin Kim is a multilingual dentist, speaking Korean, Spanish, and English fluently, currently practicing at the Nuvia Dental Center in Alexandria. Born in Korea, Dr. Kim moved to Mexico when she was just five years old. There, she grew up, developed her passion for the medical field, and pursued dental school. This international upbringing has equipped her with a diverse cultural understanding, making her an empathetic and understanding professional.

As a high school student, Dr. Kim served as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), further cementing her desire to help others. However, it was the smiles and facial expressions that drew her towards dentistry. She recognized how the first thing we notice about people is their face, and she wanted to be a part of enhancing and preserving that. Dr. Kim's love for dentistry only grew during her dental school years, as she realized that the profession was a perfect blend of science, art, and health care provision.

Dr. Kim's patient care philosophy is deeply personal and rooted in empathy. She has developed a special bond with elderly patients, often reminded of her own grandfather during interactions with them. Her primary motivation is giving these patients a second chance at joy - restoring their dental function and aesthetics, enabling them to eat and speak comfortably again, and boosting their self-confidence.

Beyond her technical skills, Dr. Kim brings emotional sensitivity to her practice. She's often moved by the transformational journeys of her patients and is not averse to sharing a joyful tear with them. She believes that her work doesn't just restore smiles but gives people their lives back, which she considers the greatest joy of her profession.

Dr. Kim ensures that her patients have a comfortable and supportive experience under her care. She understands the hesitation some may feel about dental procedures and prioritizes making her patients feel at ease. She emphasizes that her goal is not just to treat, but also to educate and empower her patients regarding their dental health.

Dr. Ty James

Dr. James was born in Saint Lucia and grew up in South Carolina where he was an athletic and social kid. He has always been interested in art and the medical field. It wasn’t until his senior year of college studying Biology at the University of Georgia that he realized he could pair his love of art and medicine with dentistry. A career in dentistry, and especially as a dental implant doctor would be just the way to mix these two passions. After the University of Georgia, Dr. James attended medical college in Augusta, Georgia. 

During his time as a restorative dentist and dental implant doctor, Dr. James has enjoyed serving others in other countries who have dental needs but not the means to receive treatment. He has gone on various humanitarian trips to Honduras, Nicaragua, Brazil, and India to do dental work for those in need. 

Why Nuvia

Dr James was drawn towards Nuvia’s innovative process of restoring smiles through dental implants. Prior to Nuvia he had done full mouth restoration dentistry for many years. Having seen first hand the traditional method of doing dental implants and how long that can take, he loves that he can now help patients receive permanent teeth in 24 hours instead of waiting what may be 10+ months before getting them. You can now find Dr James at Nuvia’s Atlanta clinic, changing lives as a dental implant doctor.

Giving patients brand new smiles in 24 hours is very fulfilling for Dr. James. His personal philosophy is, “The more you smile, the better the world becomes''. He is committed to giving patients the best care and providing them with smiles that they love and can confidently share.

To those considering working with Nuvia, Dr James says, “We want you to look good, we want you to feel good”. Dr. James and everyone at the Atlanta office is dedicated to making sure every patient leaves feeling comfortable at Nuvia and confident with their new smile.
