Meet Dr. Michael Korn, DDS
West Seattle Dentist
The Professional Side
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 and dentistry services. 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 dental 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.
The Personal Side
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!
