Dr. Ji Min “Mina” Yochim (Dr. Mina) - Pediatric Dentist

Pediatric Dentist

My name is Ji Min “Mina” Yochim. I am a board-certified pediatric dentist and an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Western Society of Pediatric Dentistry, the college of the diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Montana Dental Association, and the local 6th District Dental Society in Bozeman.

I first became interested in dentistry after going on a medical/dental mission trip to Mexico with my church during my graduate studies. After obtaining my Ph.D. degree at the University of Southern California (USC) in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology I worked for two years as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) dental school. While conducting oral cancer research at UCLA, my interest in dentistry increased and I pursued my dream of becoming a dentist. I received my Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (D.M.D.) degree from Nova Southeastern University in 2009.

My daughter was born one month into my first year of dental school. I love children and enjoyed treating them in the clinic. Raising my daughter increased my passion for children’s oral health and led me to pursue two years of pediatric dentistry specialty training at USC after completing 4 years of dental school. As a mother, I relate with and understand parents and their daily struggles very well. I focus on providing positive experiences, preventing cavities by educating each child and their parents. As a child, I was afraid to go to the dentist, so I understand how they might feel.

My favorite things to do and two favorite ice cream flavors:

I love to spend time with family, camping, traveling, ice skating, watching movies and Korean drama, listening to classical music, volunteering/serving at church, in the community and many other activities. My favorite ice cream flavors are peanut butter cup and black cherry.

Ella - Office Mascot

Hi, my name is Ella, I am a Maltipoo (Maltese and Toy Poodle) and I was born on August 21, 2018. I am little but have a big heart. I love children, giving and receiving kisses, playing with my toy kong, and going on road trips. I’ve traveled to Wyoming, Arizona and California. I am small so a lot of people don’t notice me hanging out in my mom’s shoulder bag. I have to bark sometimes to let people know that I am in there so they will pet me. I am very good at jumping and running (my family calls me Zoom Zoom Ella). My hope is to help you be calm and relaxed for a wonderful visit with Dr. Mina.

My favorite things to do and my two favorite ice cream flavors:

My favorite things to do are hanging out with my family and sniffing out new places in search of wonderful treasures. My favorite foods are cabbage and cucumbers. If I could eat ice cream, my favorite flavor would be cabbage and cucumber ice cream.

Hi, my name is Maggie! I’m originally from a very small island in Washington called Vashon Island. I have worked with children in many different ways, from nannying, babysitting and coaching sports. My favorite thing about working with kids is how happy they are to show you things they have done and progressed with. In my down time I enjoy skling, reading and just being outdoors. My favorite ice cream flavors would have to be, coconut and mint chocolate chip!

Hi, my name is Brittney and I’m originally from Twin Falls, ID. I moved to Bozeman with my husband, because he is working on a PhD at MSU. We love the Bozeman skies & exploring the trails & hikes here. My favorite ice cream flavors are huckleberry & raspberry. I am the 3rd of 6 kids, with the youngest being 7 years old. I love working with kids, because they’ll always tell you how they feel and love to just have a good time. It also reminds me of my younger siblings who live far away.
