Meet The Team

Dr. Kimberly Nealy, DMD

Dr. Kimberly Nealy is a third generation dentist and very passionate about the "art" of dentistry. Dr. Nealy completed her undergraduate education at Santa Clara University, earning her Bachelor’s in Biochemistry. During her time there, she traveled to Cusco, Peru and volunteered at a dental clinic to provide much needed services to their community. Dr. Nealy earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Western University College of Dental Medicine in Southern California where she was awarded Excellence in Prosthodontics. She has completed extensive training in implant dentistry and due to her success, was awarded Fellowship from the Global Dental Implant Academy.

Dr. Nealy enjoys connecting with her patients and giving them an exceptional dental experience! She strives for perfection and understands the power of a healthy and beautiful smile. What drew Dr. Nealy to dentistry was the way it pairs art with science and she likes to consider herself an interior designer for mouths!

Dr. Nealy is a native Californian, growing up in beautiful Redding, California. She and her husband met in medical and dental school and recently moved to WA for her husband’s fellowship in Cosmetic Surgery. She has loved exploring the area and getting to know all the wonderful things the Pacific Northwest has to offer! She and her husband recently welcomed their first child into the world and are thrilled to add ‘parent’ to their resume. Come meet Dr. Nealy and have her change your mind about your typical idea of “going to the dentist.”

Dr. Michael Korn, DDS, FICOI

Dr. Michael Korn received his doctorate of dental surgery from the University of Southern California and was nominated by the faculty for "best hand skills" or the Rex Ingraham Award, 2010. He received a Master of Science degree in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, 2005 and a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, 2003 both from Northern Arizona University. Dr. Korn chose dentistry to match his interests, skills and perfectionist personality. In dentistry, Dr. Korn is able to make a lasting impression on the health, wellness and happiness of the people around him.

Dr. Korn was drawn to the geography and climate of the Great Northwest to raise his family. He became a voracious volunteer at Swedish Community Specialty Clinic performing surgical and full mouth extractions. In November, 2014, Dr. Korn was recognized as "Volunteer of the Year" by Seattle King County Dental Foundation for his free surgical work there. Dr. Korn has also been awarded the honor of Fellowship status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists after completing the Implant Pathway continuum. 

Dr. Korn has had the pleasure of treating many different patient populations. While in dental school he spent some time in the special patients department treating patients with complex medical histories; he volunteered at the Union Gospel Mission in downtown LA in an area known as “Skid Row”; he volunteered with Queen’s Care at USC treating elementary school children in south central Los Angeles; he has worked with the Nisqually Indian Tribe; he has spent time at both men’s and women’s prisons in the state of Washington; he volunteers each month at the Swedish Community Specialty Clinic providing care for the patient population who needs it most.

When Dr. Korn is not fighting the war on dental decay he enjoys camping, snowboarding, white water rafting and frequenting Seattle Sounders games. However, the strong majority of his time is currently devoted to his beautiful wife, little girl and baby boy!

Jennifer Auker

Jennifer is a true Washingtonian, born and raised in the Northwest! Her dental career began in 2001 as a Scheduling Coordinator. Over the years, she has managed to learn and oversee all aspects of the front office. Her main joy is helping patients feel at ease while discussing their treatment plan. She also finds joy in assisting patients in understanding their insurance benefits including their out of pocket expenses to the best of her ability. She currently commutes from Puyallup where she lives with her two red headed sons, Kaeden and Kolton, and their cat, Simon. In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys any opportunity she gets to spend time with her friends and family, volunteer and serve at her church or even just relax and watch a movie… without having to fold laundry that is. She understands that dentistry and the cost of it can be overwhelming to some. Therefore, her promise to all patients is to be honest, compassionate and kind while helping them navigate their way to a healthy smile.

Our Team

Welcome to Dr. Korn’s dental office! We are a family practice that serves the Southcenter area.

We take pride in giving patients quality dental treatments while being as transparent as possible with our estimates.

Ali, RDH

I recently moved to West Seattle from the Boise Idaho area and am excited to be a part of Dr. Korn’s team. I attended Idaho State University and graduated with a double Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene and Health Sciences. During my hygiene education I spent a lot of time in community health services, elementary schools, and volunteer clinics, where I was able to work with diverse groups of patients. My absolute favorite part of my job is getting to know my patients, and I pride myself in providing very thorough oral health education and care that fits each individual patient’s needs. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our golden retriever Indie, we love skiing and anything outdoors, as well as trying new food, so I am excited for all that West Seattle has to offer!

Kenneth David

Hello! I’m Kenneth and I am very gladly to welcome you to our beautiful and modern dental office! As you enter our office, we will greet you with our warm smiles and outgoing personalities! I will be here to support you and make sure you are comfortable during your visits. YOU are my top priority! 

I have been a Dental Assistant since 2012. I can also help you communicate in my native language, Tagalog. I grew up in Long Beach, California and decided to make Washington my home state when I fell in love with the nature and it’s people. In my free time, I love spending time with my family, hiking, playing basketball and goofing around with my American Bully, Zeus!

Elmira

I was born and raised in Russia. At age 16, I moved to the United States, graduated from High School, then College and became a registered Dental Assistant in Washington State in the beginning of 2011. I enjoy admiring, as well as creating art, especially sculpting and painting. With my love for art, came some important skills, such as sturdy hands, attention to details and creative mind. I believe those three things help me a lot to be a hard working dental assistant with a positive attitude. My favorite part about dentistry is our patients and our interaction with each other. Every day I learn something new and exciting from them. And, of course, helping people in general is extremely rewarding.
