Clay kim, dds, md
I was raised in Ellicott City, Maryland where I graduated from Mt. Hebron High School. I then attended University of Maryland at College Park where I graduated in 2001 with a degree in a marine biology. I then moved to New York, NY where I attended Columbia University school of Dentistry. During my 3rd year of dental school I met and married my wonderful wife Josie. I graduated from Columbia University in 2006. I began my OMFS internship at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, TX. I began a 6 year OMFS residency at Allegheny General Hospital located in Pittsburgh, PA and also completed a 2 year General Surgery residency at Allegheny General Hospital. I received my medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in the summer of 2011. I graduated with an OMFS specialty certificate in June in 2014.
I am excited about enjoying a long career in oral and maxillofacial surgery and raising my family in Maryland.
I feel blessed to be a part of this great profession and I take pride in the training I have received. Training which, I believe, provided outstanding preparation for a career in oral and maxillofacial surgery. The experiences I have had in the hospital setting have allowed me ample opportunity to manage patients in a variety of situations. Our residency program has given me experience with different aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery including; wisdom tooth extraction, dental implantology, preprosthetic surgery, maxillofacial trauma, orthognathic surgery, oral pathology and TMJ surgery to name a few.
I reside in Waldorf, Maryland with my wife and 2 children. In my spare time I enjoy playing and coaching lacrosse and spending time with my family.
