Dr. Herschel Berger

I am proud to be 2nd gen­er­a­tion to run our Fam­ily Den­tal Practice — Den­tal Group Of Simi Val­ley. My father, Dr. Ivan Berger, started this prac­tice in 1963. Now it con­tin­ues with my wife, Dr Laura Jen Kin and myself. My wife and I met in Den­tal School at the Uni­ver­sity of the Pacific. We were mar­ried August 12th of 1989 and moved to Simi Val­ley in 1990. We have three beau­ti­ful Daugh­ters: Syd­ney, Karli and Daryn. I remem­ber as a child going with my father to Simi Val­ley when he was called in for Dental Emergencies. This is how I learned first hand the incred­i­ble feel­ing of car­ing for peo­ple. It was these incred­i­ble expe­ri­ences with my father that made me real­ize that I also was des­tined for a pro­fes­sion in Dentistry.

Some five decades later, my wife and I are blessed to con­tinue the fam­ily legacy of tak­ing care of the great peo­ple of Simi Val­ley. Our com­mit­ment to our Pro­fes­sion, to our fam­ily, and to our com­mu­nity has allowed us a beau­ti­ful life. Our Den­tal Prac­tice is just another exten­sion of our fam­ily and we still some have staff mem­bers here that started their career with my father.
Our staff is expe­ri­enced and will make you feel like “Fam­ily!” We are still car­ing for our patients that started com­ing here to see my father, Dr. Ivan Berger, and now we are caring for their children and and grand children.

In our office you will find warmth, com­pas­sion, and above all, hon­esty. We have been mak­ing Simi smile since 1963 and are grate­ful for being able to prac­tice here. Give us an oppor­tu­nity to give you a great smile as well!
I look for­ward to meet­ing you.

Dr. Laura Jen Kin

As a Gen­eral Den­tist for over 25 years, I feel that the best part of being a Den­tist in Simi Val­ley is the oppor­tu­nity to know my patients and their extended fam­i­lies. I feel as if they are part of my fam­ily and I am able to share in their joys and chal­lenges dur­ing the many years of know­ing them. I value the rela­tion­ships that I form with each and every patient and it is my desire to treat each per­son with dig­nity and respect. It is my goal to have my patients feel that it was an enjoy­able and easy visit, that they received qual­ity ser­vices in a kind and lov­ing environment. I have been involved in the Simi Val­ley com­mu­nity in var­i­ous ways over the years. Serv­ing as a Direc­tor on the PTA for over ten years, to being a Direc­tor on the Edu­ca­tion Foun­da­tion.

I’m a past mem­ber of the Simi Val­ley Sun­rise Rotary and past Cap­tain of my women’s USTA com­pet­i­tive ten­nis team. Our ten­nis team has rep­re­sented Ven­tura County over seven times to play at the Regional Sec­tion­als. I have been a mem­ber of this team for over 15 years.

For over 30 years, I have been a vol­un­teer for Alpha Phi Inter­na­tional Fra­ter­nity. I have held the fol­low­ing offices: Recruit­ment Advi­sor, Finance Advi­sor, Chap­ter Advi­sor for CSU/Northridge, Dis­trict Gov­er­nor, Admin­is­tra­tor of Fra­ter­nity Edu­ca­tion, Colony Super­vi­sor, Advi­sor to the Vice Pres­i­dent of Pro­gram Devel­op­ment at Wash­ing­ton State and at CSUN, and a Direc­tor on the Alpha Phi Foun­da­tion Board. Through my involve­ment with Alpha Phi, I am able to enjoy work­ing with col­lege women to enhance their col­le­giate expe­ri­ence and fur­ther develop their lead­er­ship skills so that they will achieve their future goals.

My hus­band Her­schel and I have three daugh­ters that are involved in many activ­i­ties that keep us busy shut­tling them around and attend­ing their impor­tant events. Our chil­dren are our biggest joy and we strive to be sup­port­ive, lov­ing and con­sis­tent with them. Our goal is to have a bal­anced life and we wish that for every­one that we come into con­tact with.
