The Most Experienced Dentists of Simi Valley

Dr. Herschel Berger

I am proud to be 2nd gen­er­a­tion to run our Fam­ily Den­tal PracticeDen­tal 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.

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.
