Ellen Im

  • Poway, California
  • Dr. Ellen Im DDS Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics

A skilled pediatric dentist who puts her community first, Dr. Im helps ensure the well-being of even her smallest patients by offering a “comfort menu” with such options as watching a movie, putting on a superhero cape or being handed a stuffed animal, blanket or squishy stress ball to hold. Even in a fast-paced environment, Dr. Im and her team keep things light by singing and dancing all day.
