About Soh Yeun Eileen Kim, DDS

As a Course Director of Patient-Centered Care I and II at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, Division of General Dentistry, my special interest is in teaching first and second year dental students and ensuring they will be well-prepared to operate effectively in the clinic as they start actual patient care at the end of their second year.

I have been enjoying working with dental school students both in classroom and clinical settings. In my course, students learn how to assess patients, diagnose problems and create integrated treatment plans by studying patient cases. Students also practice various activities in clinical settings before they start their own patient care.  It is particularly rewarding for me to observe students' growth from novice clinicians to confident clinicians.
