Happy New Year & Exciting Announcement

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

To Our Valued Clients,
As the new year begins, I reflect on all the incredible work my team and I have been able to accomplish thanks to your patronage and loyalty. It has been a monumental year for both my NY labs and we look forward to continuing to grow along with all of you. As part of that growth, I want to announce an exciting evolution that will allow our teams to do their very best work.

Effective January 2019 Oral Design New York and Jason J. Kim Dental Aesthetics will be consolidated to one location (5 Harbor Park Dr. Port Washington). The two businesses will operate under one name, Jason J. Kim Dental Aesthetics. The Manhattan location will remain open on a limited basis for taking patient custom shades and consults as well as continued education for doctors.
I have been teasing on social media that we have wonderful news to share and I am so happy I can now reveal that recently a major client built a laboratory in their office and has asked me to spend three days a week at their location. This is an incredible opportunity and after much thought, I have agreed to do so and spend the remaining two days a week in Port Washington.

It's important to me that you understand this is not a change that will cause you any unnecessary issues, as my time was previously divided between my Manhattan laboratory and Port Washington laboratory, and the only difference now is where I am located in Manhattan. Some of my Oral Design technicians had been previously transitioned to the Port Washington location.
I will still own the lab and continue to rely on the expertise and abilities of Calvin Mun CDT (Lab Manager and Technical Liaison), Marcello Allegra (Director of Sales, Marketing and Education) and Tom Muscarello (CFO and Lab Operations) as I have for the last 8 years. My team is most important to me and they continue to be the nucleus of the highest professionalism and quality you have come to expect.
I write this letter because I want you to be part of the excitement that comes with this evolution of our labs, while also reassuring you that we will continue to provide the best results for you and your patients and we will continue to be a leader in the industry with regards to function and aesthetics!
We have much to look forward to in 2019 as a result of this great news and I can't wait to see what's in store!

Once again thank you for your continued loyalty.
Warmest Regards,

Jason J. Kim, CDT

Tai Hwa Goh’s recent work attempts to delineate the boundary between the inner and outer realms of the body. She is specifically interested in revealing the body’s experience through sense perception. Her aim is to expand the boundaries of perception to whole body, which she believes to be the domain of basic human experience. For Goh, the limitation of the corporeal is also the starting point to explore the body’s vulnerability and make an inquiry into the nature of human existence. She explores the opaque and ambiguous world between oblivion and memory, and the dichotomy between the resilient, yet vulnerable body and the recoverable, rather strong selfness. By transmitting her own experience using these images and spatial structure, she is experimenting with cognitive expansion and probing the shared domain of human experience, where similarity of images begins to form a symbolical linguistic system.

Tai Hwa Goh creates installation that blur the definition between printmaking and sculpture. Her highly labor-intensive creations showcase the technical skills she has to create three-dimensional forms utilizing the traditional printmaking methods. Her works evokes biological forms and landscape, reflecting on the accumulation of memory and experience.
