Centreville, VA Dentist

Dr. Marco Flores

To me, the challenge that every patient brings is what excites me the most about dentistry. I consider it a privilege to be able to put what I have learned to my patients’ service, and thus enable them to achieve the oral health they deserve. We see every day in our office how patients regain their confidence when they have a beautiful smile to show the world. That same confidence gives them a new perspective in life, and that is priceless.I truly enjoy interacting with my patients. I take the time to get to know them beyond the dental chair. I cherish them as individuals and long-time friends, and am grateful to practice in a multicultural area where we can learn so much about different experiences, traditions, and cultures. I have grown so much as a human being thanks to my patients.

Education and Continuing Education

  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery – Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Peru, 1993
  • Advanced education in general dentistry – University of Maryland Dental School
  • Master of Science in oral biology – University of Maryland Dental School, 2002

Dentistry is, in my opinion, one of the fields where it matters the most to be up to date, because it is constantly evolving. Dental materials, techniques, and procedures are constantly changing to enable us to provide better service to our patients.

To stay current with all the possibilities that contemporary dentistry offers, I have continued my education at the world-renowned Dawson Academy, with Spear Education, and with Align Technology, Inc., which has allowed me to achieve Preferred Provider status with Invisalign®.

Outside the Office
I met my wife Fernanda in Lima, Peru when we were 16 years old; we’ve been together ever since. We got married in 1996 and we have two children, Micaela and Joaquin. During my lunch time, you will find me at the gym, but the rest of my free time is spent with my family.

My wife and I have been touched on a very personal level by cancer and autism. Therefore, we dedicate our efforts to any cause that addresses them, including the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Autism Speaks, and Wintergreen Adaptive Sports. We also support several Fairfax County and Loudoun County public schools and their PTAs, and the Assistance League of Northern Virginia.

Young Min Kim, DDS, MS

I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, but I fell in love with Virginia while completing my undergraduate studies at Virginia Tech. It was there that I met my beautiful wife, Mindy. My life did not always revolve around dentistry; in fact it was quite the opposite. Ironically, my parents own a chocolate shop. While working there, I was able to channel my creativity into making chocolate. As a dentist, I use that same creativity to help make healthy smiles!

Beyond the technical aspects of dentistry, I enjoy meeting and befriending patients. I cherish these relationships, as it gives me an opportunity to get to know the individual behind the smile. My goal is to listen to my patients’ concerns, while ensuring they are comfortable with the care I provide for them.

The more I delve into dentistry, the more apparent it has become that dentistry is a life-long learning process. Today, dentistry is completely different from what it has been in the past; this can be attributed to the fact that the evidence supporting our reasoning for treatment is ever-changing. Through continuous training, my goal is to become a proficient and knowledgeable clinician. My passion is to educate my patients about their treatment options, so that they may feel empowered to choose what is best for them.

Mindy and I enjoy hiking, camping, and going to the beach with our dogs, Scout and Dakota. I also enjoy watching movies, playing the guitar, and playing video games. I am a firm believer that no one is ever too old for video games!

Additionally, I am passionate about community outreach. I have been involved in programs such as Mission of Mercy, Give Kids a Smile, and Special Olympics: Special Smiles.
