Meet Our Delite Dental Experts
Our terrific dental twosome has pieced together a team who shares their values and genuinely cares for people in our community.
Dr. Hayan Lee
Introducing a natural, holistic approach to understanding how dentistry benefits your entire body.
Born and raised in South Korea, the only dental education Dr. Lee had as a child was “brush teeth twice a day.” She never knew about flossing or professional dental cleaning. No wonder she had so many cavities as a child. She remembers being frustrated, as every year, she would have new cavities and feel guilty to see her parents spending so much money at the dentist.
After moving to America, due to her passion for science and art, she found that dentistry is the perfect match for her. She could combine her skills and prevent people suffering in the way she had as a child.
Thanks to her education as a dentist, she has been cavity free for a long time. But more importantly, what she realize that there is more to oral health than brushing, flossing, and professional cleaning. She knows that teeth are living thing and just like any other part of the body, teeth are affected by diet and your total health.
Dr. Lee graduated Magna Cum Laude from Furman University with an undergraduate degree in biochemistry.
She received her dental education at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
As a dentist in Summerville SC, Dr. Lee continues to advance her dental and clinical expertise, both through continuing education and connecting with other dentists. She is an active member of both the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Dr. Young Kim
Making the transformation from a crippling dental anxiety to the acknowledged expert dentist of Summerville, SC.
Dr. Young Kim is the doctor of choice if you have a dental phobia because he used to have it himself. As a child in Korea, he did not have quality dental education or care. In his teens and early 20s, he received a variety of dental treatments to correct his smile. Because of his experience, he understands the state of mind of dental patients and understands that dental fear is not from the procedure itself but from HOW it is delivered.
To clarify the extent of his dental phobia: Once when visiting the dentist, he pinched himself so hard to distract his fear that he later realized his nail had cut through his skin (ouch!). Now he firmly believes that your dental experience should be relaxing, comfortable, and completely stress-free. So please don’t be embarrassed if you are in the same boat as Dr. Kim was..
All of us at Delite Dental follow Dr. Kim's lead and do everything in our power to produce the best dental experience for you.
Born and raised in South Korea, Dr. Kim came to the U.S. to further his interest in oral health.
He graduated from Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina.
Dr. Kim is an active member of American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry.
