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 there.
Dr. Korn has had the pleasure of treating many different 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.
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!
