Dr. Dongkook 'DK' Lim

Dr. Dongkook “DK” Lim has been all around the world. Before he settled down in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, he spent part of his childhood in South Korea and the rest in the Midwest, including Kansas, Iowa, and Indiana. He has also traveled in all the continents save Australia, part of which he spent volunteering as a teacher and a dentist in South America.

Dr. DK is so thankful for his global experience – not only for becoming fluent in Korean and conversational in Spanish, but also experiencing a humbling perspective and helping him see the world through the eyes of others.

Hi! I’m Cheryl, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know 2 generations of patients and their parents at Alderwood Children’s Dentistry. It’s been great to watch our patients grow up and then return with their own children.

I look forward to meeting new families yet to come.

Outside of work I’m kept busy keeping up with my husband of 40 plus years, entertaining, traveling, gardening, grandchildren and 3 very goofy but much-loved dogs.



Hello! I’m Patti, and I’ve worked in our office for over 30 years. I’ve enjoyed all aspects of caring for our patients and families over the years!

At home Patti and her husband have their 10 acre farm with Quarter horses, Paint Horses, Miniature horses and a mini pig and donkey among their farm animals! She enjoys going to horse shows, trail riding, caring for their Koi pond and salmon fishing with her husband!
