Patient Review From Yelp Yelp Review
★★★★★ Before going to Dr. Lim, I visited six other dentists, and the cosmetics that I needed all other Dentist either didn't feel comfortable doing the work or they didn't have the skills. My first visit with Dr. Lim I immediately knew he was the Dentist that could do the work because he immediately gave me 3 different options. After the work that Dr. Lim did, I now have a movie star smile for the first time in my life. If you want the mission impossible work done then, Dr. Lim is the person. I've received many compliments, and I credit it to Dr. Lim! I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Lim and his staff! They are professional, yet personable and care about my health and happiness with the work. Working with Dr. Lim and his staff is always a pleasant experience!

★★★★★ I was searching for a great dentist that could take me in as soon as possible because i had a swollen face from a tooth and no one was available or wanted to see me but i stumbled onto Yelp and saw this office. I called and they took me in right away. They are super nice and caring especially for people who get anxiety over going to the dentist. Steven lim is a great dentist and cares about his patients. The whole staff is great as well. He answers all questions to the best his knowledge and explains everything thats going to be done and what needs to be done. Highly recommended. Ive had implants with little to none pain. The teeth cleaning is well done too. If you need a dentist who cares about you and you teeth being healthy again,this is the place.

★★★★★ My last dentist didn't solve my gum problem, and the cleaning was painful. After I come here Dr. Lim arrange a deep cleaning immediately. After the treatment my overall gum health is a lot better. I still go there regularly and so far im pretty satisfied with their treatment.

★★★★★ I was referred to Dr. Steve Lim by my friend Christian. On April 5, I went to Dr. Lim's office and met his professional & respectable staff members .
Thank you Dr Lim and your assistant for laughing with me when I covered my eyes with my jacket. I'm still laughing.
I was imagining the chain saw massacre with blood splattering. . I knew I could not save 3 molars nor could I afford to have them properly removed.
It is day two. I feel no pain and swelling has lessen faster than I expected! You are a pro. I will always be greatful and appreciative for your help and service. God bless you and your staff. Sincerely, Irma Quijada

★★★★★ I had two extractions performed by Dr Lim.
It took him about 10 minutes, and I didn't feel a thing. I healed quickly with no problems or discomfort. I would recommend Dr Lim to anyone needing quick, efficient and painless dental work!

★★★★★ Dr Lim did an awesome job with crowns on my teeth to improve the look of my teeth which were starting to thin in some areas. He took his time to ensure the right look when sending the mold to the lab and when he wasn't happy with the end product he sent it out again. He wanted to ensure the best look possible and wanted me to me very happy at the end. He is always professional, calm and personable along with his entire staff. Thanks to all!
★★★★★ Writing this review is a bit emotional for me. I am a 62 year old retired RN with multiple sclerosis. This disease causes severe dental problems in some patients. For me, it caused dental decay, no matter how hard I worked at keeping my teeth clean. I was at a loss as to what to do. My family tells me I stopped smiling because I was so ashamed of my teeth. I also had a sinus tumor removed several years ago at Kaiser which had an effect on my teeth. After my dentist DR. Trung Pham recommended DR. Steve Lim, everything changed. Dr. Lim was very thorough and offered me many different options. Because I needed good solid teeth to avoid choking and repeat aspiration from the MS, I chose the top of the line treatment. Dr. Lim also brought in his associate Sean Han,who prior to the treatment works with your impression and pictures of your smile to develop your temporary teeth. Sean comes in from Arizona to assist the day of your surgery. Dr. Lim and Sean work so well as a team that you feel safe and well cared for. Together, along with the fantastic team of assistants they worked a long nine hours removing all of my teeth and putting in implants as well as putting in the beautiful temporary teeth which I will wear for three months. At that time Sean will come back and they will work to put in equally beautiful permanent teeth. I am normally frightened by dental work due to many bad experiences as a child. Dr. Lim and his staff made sure I felt safe and calm. I cannot put into words the expertise and patience I witnessed with Dr. Lim. Because of my history this was a complicated procedure,but he just kept working until the job was done correctly. As an RN I am very aware of the competence of other health professionals. So I am confident in recommending Dr. Lim and his caring staff, especially if your case is complicated.
I will also tell you that after this long nine hour day, they asked me to look in the hall mirror. My teeth are so beautiful that I cried happy uncontrollable tears. I got hugs from everyone as my husband watched with tears in his eyes. Of course he got a big hug from me too. Dr. Lim talked about the reward he gets when he sees this result. This is a big game changer for me. As my husband said,'Your smile is worth a million bucks Patty.'
I also want to send a warm shout out to Sally, the office manager, for all of the support through this. She not only takes care of the financial details but adds tender loving care during the procedure and follow up.
And last but not least, the front office staff is very professional and warm.
Thank You to those of you who took the time to read my long post. I feel pretty again and no longer worry about my teeth.
Take Care Patty Rush

★★★★★ I went into this dental office with some really bad pain from my wisdom tooth. The staff was very helpful and welcoming, everyone there was really kind. Dr. Lim knew exactly what to do and worked quickly to remove the nagging tooth. The procedure itself took less than 5 minutes! My mouth feels great, and there was almost no recovery pain at all. I want to thank everyone that works here, I had a great experience and will definitely be coming here for any other dental issues I might have in the future!

★★★★★ Dr Lim is friendly, confident, and competent. The Doc is great at making me feel at ease. I also appreciate that he is willing to take time to explain and educate.

The staff is friendly and polite. They are great about reminders, email text. I really am grateful of the timely heads up. It's always pleasant to go to an office where people are pleasant. And the accountant gave me a small discount because I was getting so many things fixed.

★★★★★ I am Dr. Lim's first paying customer after graduating 'Top of his Class,' from Boston's premier Dental School. Since I'm a very finicky person when it comes to professionalism and excellence for services rendered, the expectations I had of him were tremendous. As you can read from his first Yelp review, which was my first 'Yelp' posting, it's obvious he far exceeded the 5 star score I was allowed by Yelp. Now, over a decade later, his initial, youthful drive to provide exceptional dental care and treatment to all his patients remains solidly intact and serve as proud testaments to the exemplary man and Dentist he continues to be to this day.

Patient Review From Yelp Yelp Review
★★★★★ My husband had a dental emergency and after 2 days of calling places to get a tooth removed Dr.Steve Lim answered his emergency line. His staff was able to get us in immediately and were so kind and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Lim and his staff for all dental procedures. Because if he was able to take care of my husband who is terrified of dentists I'm sure he can take care of anyone. My husband said as soon as we left there it was the best experience he has ever had.

★★★★★ My son had a very complicated dental situation which Dr Lim handled with skill and compassion. I visited several dentists before deciding to go with Dr. Lim. I went with him because he clearly explained what he was going to do and why AND because he so quickly established a strong rapport with my son. A year after the procedure, my son looks great and the service continues to be stellar.

I recently started going there myself and was happy with the cleaning - gentle and thorough. I can be anxious but my hygienist made me very comfortable.

★★★★★ Today was a big milestone for me. As a few people know, I had a traumatic bicycle accident last year and have spent the past 14 months & 14 days undergoing multiple oral reconstructive surgeries. Thanks to the amazing Dr. Steven Lim & his great team, today I received my final dental implants. For a guy who had never had so much as a cavity before this episode, it was a long struggle -- but now I'm looking & feeling great!
