Meet Laura Ki, DDS
Dr. Laura Ki decided to become a dentist after her father lost all of his teeth. It was very difficult for him to do everyday things like eat a meal, and so she decided she wanted to help people in similar situations. After going on several mission trips during which she had to remove many failing teeth, Dr. Ki made a commitment to her patients to help them save their natural teeth when at all possible.
Dr. Ki received her undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland and then went to dental school at the Medical College in Richmond (Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry). After graduating in 1993, she completed a one-year residency at the Stony Brook State University of New York. Her dedication to continued learning had taken her through hundreds of hours of training in soft tissue therapy, dental implants, and orthodontics. She completes more than 100 hours of continuing education and training each year.
Her professional affiliations include:
- Academy of General Dentistry
- American Dental Implant Association
- Certified Invisalign Orthodontics Dentist
- American Dental Association
- Northern Virginia Dental Association
- Virginia Dental Association
Outside of the office, Dr. Ki is very involved with her church and the Samaritan’s Purse foundation, and also volunteers at the Northern Virginia Dental Clinic. She enjoys traveling, spending time outdoors, and practicing her South Korean language skills.
