Pediatric Dentists train up to 3 years longer than general dentists. Our team is highly specialized in the treatment of children, From expert children’s oral healthcare to pediatric orthodontic solutions to advanced laser treatments for children.

Dr. Yun (Sara) Kim is a board-certified pediatric dentist who joined our practice in 2022. A native of South Korea, she immigrated to the United States when she was seven years old, where she grew up in Suwanee, Georgia, about an hour outside of Atlanta. Drawn to both the challenges and rewards inherent in the dental profession, she earned her dental degree from Tufts University after studying microbiology as an undergraduate at the University of Georgia. She also completed a pediatric dental residency at New York University’s Langone Medical Center.

Dr. Kim loves working as a dentist because every day on the job — and every patient — is unique. A kid herself at heart, she chose to specialize in pediatric dentistry because she has so much fun working with children, who, as she says, are spontaneous, resilient, and really funny! She especially enjoys opportunities to serve children with special needs and help their parents develop customized treatment approaches to support their future well-being. For all patients, she places a strong emphasis on oral health education for both parent and child so that each patient gets to develop strong oral health hygiene habits from a young age.

When she’s not on the job, Dr. Kim loves to spend time with her husband (a dental hygienist!) and their two rescue dogs. Together, they enjoy hiking, traveling, and exploring new cities.


Dr. Ferishta Faqeeri was raised in Gainesville, Florida, alongside her five siblings.

Upon graduating from dental school, Dr. Faqeeri found her passion and calling while providing dental care to under-served children in the public health sector.

Dr. Faqeeri is board certified as a pediatric dentist. Her passion for children’s dentistry is reflected through her friendly, reassuring personality and ability to make young patients feel at ease. In her spare time, she enjoys learning about new cultures, traveling, exploring the outdoors, and entertaining friends and family while cooking Persian food.
