Overall Dental Practice Rating ★★★★★ 5 / 5 based upon 40 reviews.
★★★★★ 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.

★★★★★ 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.

★★★★★ 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!

★★★★★ I hate going to the dentist. I get panic attacks, reoccurring nightmares, and sobbing fits, but the entire staff and Dr. Lim made my experience so comfortable and enjoyable. Great services, friendly staff, modern and professional.

★★★★★ This office is amazing! I have a son that was terrified of the dentist, even at a pediatric office. We moved him here for some specialty work and it's where I come (convenient!). They have been wonderful with him! Dr. Grace has been incredibly patient with him and his fear of the dentist has subsided. Dr. Lim is just as great and friendly. The front and back office staff is so friendly, and no matter which technician you have working with you, they are all superb. A+

★★★★★ Dr. Steve and his staff are the best! I had all four wisdom teeth pulled out by him on the same day. Everything turned out better than expected. My bottom wisdom teeth were a little harder to remove, but Dr. Lim was able to pull them all out by the root, except the bottom-right because of curved roots. Still, no stitches, and everything healed easily and fast. Do yourself a favor and get all your dental work done right, with Dr. Lim!

★★★★★ So I haven't had cavities in over 20+ years. I was skeptical on how it would go. I had six total cavities with two different visits. Leah was exceptional each time and was very pleasant! I forget the assistants name but extremely friendly as well. I felt no pain which made my fear of getting fillings go away. Anesthetic technology has come a long way. I also had one cleaning done which also went well. The location is on the second floor and office was extremely neat and clean. I look forward to coming back to this place and will be recommending to family and friends. Thanks!

★★★★★ Went in for a root canal and a crown for my front tooth. I have a very distinct gap that is extremely hard to replicate, but Dr. Lim and his staff were very patient and did not stop until they got it completely right. I appreciate all of their hard work. They are very efficient with reminding you of your appointment time and date by phone and text. Very client oriented and always made sure I was happy with the result. Answered all my questions and everyone was very friendly. Will definitely return and highly recommend!

★★★★★ I had such a great experience with Dr. Lim and his staff!

I needed to get a dental implant and had originally had a consult with a different Dentist/Oral Surgeon in the area (David Li, in Sunnyvale.) He told me flat out the implant would be impossible because of the way my roots were positioned, and that I needed to see my Orthodontist about getting braces AGAIN--I got braces initially for the sole reason of making room for the implant! My Orthodontist recommended I get a second opinion about the possibility of having the implant procedure, and referred me to Dr. Lim.

Dr. Lim immediately put me at ease and reassured me that there was no reason I would need to get braces again; my roots provided plenty of space to fit the implant. The level of care his team provided went above and beyond. They went over every step of the process, and even prioritized my visits around my tight schedule--I was able to have the surgery done within two months of leaving for college. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Lim made sure to sit down with me and go over any questions I had, explain what he would do, and make sure I wasn't feeling too nervous about the procedure. His assistant even positioned the TV and handed me the remote to choose a show to watch while they worked! Once the surgery was over, Dr. Lim went over aftercare and even gave me his cell phone number incase I had any questions or concerns. He and his team will continue to coordinate with me throughout my first semester, and when I return for winter break they will complete the final stage.

Also, they charged far less than the estimate the first Oral Surgeon I consulted with gave me.

I feel very lucky to be in such good hands, and I'll continue to recommend his services! Thank you, Dr. Lim!

★★★★ Brought my 3 year old son here for his 6 month check ups. We loved the office and staff so much we moved the rest of the family here. They have a wonderful office and very gentle and caring staff.

★★★★★ Dr. Lim and his staff are very accommodating and simply great people. When my wife & I were married last year he was so kind as to squeeze me in on a solidly booked day to create a whitening tray. He even made it possible for me come back that same day, at the last minute, to pick up the tray so I could whiten my teeth before our wedding. Our wedding pictures are forever grateful, LOL.
