Prasith Kim-Aun, DMD

Dr. Prasith Kim-Aun was born in Cambodia and raised in France and Germany. He studied dentistry at the University of Berlin and earned his DDS degree from the University of Ulm. After a time in private practice in Germany, his desire to broaden his scope of dentistry led him to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine where he eventually earned his DMD degree.

In 2001, he met and married his wife Ji, who is also a dentist. Together, they moved to University Place, WA to reside and practice Dentistry. They are raising two beautiful daughters that keep them busy when they are not at the office.

In his spare time, “Dr. P.” enjoys soccer, basketball, volleyball, and loves to play the guitar with his kids. He is a true family man and loves to try any of the new things his girls talk him into that allows him to spend more time with them. Recently they have convinced him to join in on their golfing lessons! Being a Star Trek fan, he collects Star Trek memorabilia and for three years served as editor-in-chief for Starfleet International ( — the world’s largest Star Trek fan club. His latest interest is airsofting.

“Dentistry is a fascinating field not only because I get to play with the latest gadgets — which is great for a technophile person like me, but I can touch and influence people from all walks of life. It’s an indescribable satisfaction to bring back someone’s smile with a beautiful restoration, or to get someone out of pain, or to simply convert a non-flosser to a flosser! It’s astonishing what patients can tell you about themselves when you just sit there and listen.” — Dr. P.


Ji Kim-Aun, DDS


Dr. Ji grew up in Colorado, the Rocky Mountain state!  She stayed close to home and attended the University of Colorado for undergrad, and dental school. While there Dr. Ji worked as an assistant in the dental school as she worked on her degree. As she attended dental school she was swept off her feet by our charming Dr. P, and the rest was history! Once they were married in 2001 they decided to move to Washington in 2001 and open a practice. Dr. Ji fell in love with Washington for its mild winters and beautiful summers. Since 2003 she has continued to fall in love with dentistry and enjoys every day she gets to spend in the office. Her favorite part of her job is helping patients restore their smile to a healthy state and educate them on how to maintain their beautiful smile. Nothing makes her happier then helping patients want to care for their oral health. Dr. Ji is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and loves learning about new dental technologies and techniques whenever she gets the opportunity.

Dr. Ji is a proud Mama to two beautiful daughters, she loves spending time with them and Dr. P when she is not working. She feels truly feel blessed to have such a supportive family that is healthy and safe. Dr. Ji also lives in University Place and feels so honored to be a part of this growing community.
