I brought my kids to Kindle Dental and we loved our experience.  The front staff was very helpful in explaining our insurance benefits when we arrived for our first appointment.  The dentist was very caring and explained each procedure as the appointment moved along.  We will definitely go back to our follow up appointment in 6 months.  Kindle Dental is the place to go to keep your family of smiles beautiful.

Antony Odhiambo, DDS - Longview, Kilgore, Tyler, TX“I have always had a love of health sciences, interacting with people and the mechanical skills involved in dentistry. Dentistry is a rapidly changing field with a tremendous amount of new information emerging all the time.

“My satisfaction comes from having patients who are happy with the work done and treatment success. My goal is make dental care accessible to everyone and to treat every patient with compassion and my commitment to the service of others.

“I hope to give my patients excellent dental education and treatment by offering them a full range of dental services. My own high-quality dental education has enabled me to provide evidence-based treatment in our friendly, professional atmosphere. Most of all, I want to deliver patient satisfaction.”

Na Young Kim, DDS - Longview, Kilgore, Tyler, TX“I chose the field of dentistry in order to help people maintain and improve their oral hygiene. It makes me so happy when a patient shows me a joyful smile. It makes me work hard for my other patients. I enjoy when I can see a big difference in my patients’ teeth after I fix them, and I am proud of myself and want to do more for them. Everyone has different problems with their teeth, and I learn more about dentistry every day from each patient.

“I love to speak with patients and listen to their main concerns about their teeth, and I want to be their friend. I try to give positive thinking to each patient and alleviate their frustration with their dental condition. I want to change their mind-set about their teeth and give them back their smile.

“I do as much as I can to provide free dental work for poor people in the community. I strive to have better communication with the community in order to emphasize how important teeth are for people.”

"The field of dentistry offers me a unique opportunity to help improve people's health, comfort, self-esteem, and appearance all at once through caring for and treating their oral health needs. I was trained by the nation's top specialists in the US Air Force and my passions are in art, health, and nutrition. I believe this gives me the best opportunity to be able to positively impact people's lives through dentistry.
One of the most gratifying experiences for me is to help alleviate a person's pain. When someone visits the office in extreme dental pain, my goal is to help improve their comfort and eliminate their pain before they leave."

"I work hard to tailor my treatment to each individual patient's specific needs and wants, in order to provide them the best service that they are seeking. I strive for perfection in every treatment that I render."

"I have a high ethical standard of care and I treat every case as if I were treating my own family members. One of my favorite aspects of dentistry is helping my patients to overcome their dental anxieties and fears, so that they become more confident and willing to seek care in the future. I often notice a big difference in both my patients' confidence and their health between the first and last dental visit, which is extremely gratifying for me."

"I graduated as a dentist from Mysore University in India in 1997 and from Boston University in 2001. I have had the pleasure of practicing dentistry ever since, mainly in New York State and California. I moved to the beautiful state of Texas in 2015, love it and hope to make it my home."

"I am a very 'people person', I love taking care of people and what better profession than dentistry to do that. There are many fears and misconceptions about dentistry; here at Kindle Dental, my fellow dentists and I strive to make our patients feel like going to the dentist is 'no big deal'. I try to make every patient feel as comfortable as possible and am told by my patients that I have a very gentle touch. In turn I am rewarded by their smile and their satisfaction with the treatment rendered."

"Apart from dentistry I enjoy listening to music, singing and movies of course!"

"I am a second generation dentist, fluent in English and Spanish with twenty six years of experience.  I firmly believe that preventive oral care is of outmost importance to the general health and well-being of individuals.  I treat patients of all ages.  I feel equally comfortable and confident in treating simple complaints and conditions as to performing complex procedures.  I am able to relate to the specific needs of each patient in order to create the trust they are looking for in a healthcare professional: one who is able to diagnose with confidence, treat and prevent dental conditions successfully. "

"Vengo de una familia de tradición en la odontología.  Tengo veintiséis años de experiencia en la práctica privada y me puedo comunicar tanto en inglés como español.  Creo firmemente que la prevención en la salud oral es de suma importancia para la salud y bienestar del individuo.  Atiendo pacientes de todas las edades.  Tengo la capacidad y experiencia para tratar condiciones y realizar procedimientos tanto simples como complejos.  Me identifico con las necesidades específicas de cada uno de mis pacientes para lograr obtener la confianza que ellos buscan en un profesional de la salud:  alguien que sea capaz de diagnosticar con seguridad y certeza; de tratar y prevenir condiciones dentales exitosamente."
