Meet Dr. Charles C. Kim, DDS
Meet Dr. James Yamamoto, DDS
Dr. James Yamamoto is a dentist who founded our office 37 years ago.
He has founded our office right here in Waterford and has been serving community of Waterford as well as people coming from all over the Central Valley for over 37 years.
Although Dr. Yamamoto doesn’t actively engage in clinical aspects of dentistry much longer, he still shows up to office weekly and hangs out with all of us, sharing life and catching up with everyone and giving hugs.
Since this office has been such a huge part of his life as well as his wife Sylvia’s, we will continue to cherish our relationship.
We love having them around and grow together continually.
Dr. Yamamoto and Dr. Kim’s History
Dr. James Yamamoto and Dr. Charles Kim first met each other doing volunteer dentistry through Nineveh’s Hope Medivan and Dental Van in Modesto over 4 years ago.
It turns out both of the doctors went to the same dental school, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and share a lot of things in common.
Ever since then, they’ve continue to hang out. It is not too surprising both their dental philosophies and treatment plans mirror each other.
Dr. Yamamoto is a friend and a mentor to Dr. Kim as well as a godfather figure.
As Dr. Yamamoto was slowing down with clinical side of dentistry, he truly believed Dr. Kim would be the one and the only fit to our office.
We love having Dr. Kim in our office to oversea the entire clinical and management of our office.
Dr. Yamamoto still shows up to office weekly to chat and hangout with all of us.
We love having them both! Dr. Yamamoto and his wife, Sylvia, and Dr. Kim and his wife, Jasmine also hang out a lot together even outside of the office.
