Why did you become a dentist?
Throughout high school and college, Dr. Lim struggled with severe acne. However, his teeth gave him a big boost in self-confidence, which helped him hold his head high throughout his difficult formative years. When he was deciding on what his career should be, he believed it would be extremely rewarding to help even just one person boost their self-confidence by giving them whiter, straighter teeth. So far, this path has been the perfect fit for him!
Where did you study dentistry?
After attending Brown University for his undergraduate degree, Dr. Lim completed his doctorate at the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He also completed a General Practice Residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Today, he focuses on helping his patients achieve sustained oral health for the benefit of their overall wellbeing. This means that he looks at everything that supports the teeth during his evaluations, including the jaw muscles, jaw bones, and gum tissue. To become an expert in this type of comprehensive care, he attends monthly Spear study club sessions with specialists and picks their brains while discussing complex cases. He’s also received lots of advanced training in helping patients with complex medical histories and intellectual disabilities.
Dr. Lim is currently a member of the following organizations:
- American Dental Association
- New York State Dental Association
- Spear Education
What do you like to do at home?
