Overall Dental Practice Rating ★★★★★ 5 / 5 based upon 50 reviews.
★★★★★ 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.

★★★★★ My temporary crown just cracked (my fault as I have waited to long to get the permanent). I called Dr. Lim on his emergency number and he immediately said he would meet me on Sunday to take care of it because I told him I have an important presentation Monday afternoon. Not all crown materials are the same, and this is one area where it makes sense to get use best materials and go to a person with specialized training. I'm grateful to Dr. Lim for always doing his best to keep my teeth healthy.

★★★★★ I have been having really painful TMJ/TMD symptoms and no dentist or doctor has really been able to help me. I go to Lim at San Jose dentist and he looks at my jaw, and my teeth, and listens to what I have to say and is able to tell me exactly what is wrong and what I need to do to fix it. I've always known my bite was off, but not that off.
I started crying afterwards because someone finally listened to me and was able to help me. I've been in so much pain for so long (more than 10 years), it's nice to have a solution. Thank you so much. And besides the amazing Dr. Lim, the staff was kind and excellent and the place was clean. They didn't charge me for the visit either, just for the temporary mouth guard that actually alleviated my pain.

★★★★★ I've been a patient of Dr. Lim's, since he took over the practice from Dr. Keller. Dr. Lim is a highly educated and knowledgable dentist. I really appreciate his expertise and his caring manner. I've had quite a bit of work done (cavities filled, crowns, bone graft, dental implant) and I've come to trust Dr. Lim's work. At 50 years of age, Dr. Lim is only my third dentist. I have to say I am a nervous patient and he and the staff always takes the time to help me feel comfortable and to calm down. I feel cared for here and not just another butt in the seat. Dr. Lim has called me at home to be sure I'm alright and to see if I need anything. As a side note; Im not the best at flossing and they don't shame you for it. They offer advice without the lecture.

As far as the office staff go, there has been some turn over and I think they've worked out all the kinks. In working with my insurance and payments, they have been professional and flexible. I really like the staff and I feel comfortable and welcome. I know it must have difficult for some patients to adjust after the death of Dr. Keller, but I am really glad Dr. Lim is my dentist and I always look forward to seeing thd staff.

★★★★★ Absolutely love the staff and service this dental office provides. Dr. Steve Lim is awesome and does great job. I can't stop smiling. Thanks again for my new smile :)
★★★★★ I had a full mouth reconstruction done by Steve and his team since I had a bad accident car accident that left teeth ruined. They gave me implants that look amazing and it didn't hurt at all to get them.

Going in to see Steve was the best decision I could of made. I used to feel very uncomfortable smiling in public places but after I went in to receive my implants, my confidence has sky rocketed and it has substantially changed my life for the better...had to write a review about it.

Thank you Dr. Lim for changing my life!

★★★★★ Great service!! Friendly nice professional staff. Very gentle but still great, they make you feel very comfortable and welcome. If your looking for a nice reliable trustworthy spot this is it!
★★★★★ After feeling not very well attended to at my previous dentist, and having my wife be very happy with hers. I started considering switching to hers: Dr Lim.
Another reminder was the quality of her mouth guard (that Dr Lim made) compared to mine. Mine was just way cruder, bigger and I assume less comfortable.
So I switched. I have been there about 5 times now, and had both routine and substantial dental work done. Every time I have had the experience that Dr Lim and his staff are attentive, committed to quality work and a happy me, and able to deliver on both :)
★★★★★ Having lived in San Francisco for nearly 5 years, I can say with out hesitation that Steve Lim is the best dentist I have found, after visiting many. I found his practice being referred by a friend after I had a filling done by another dentist (I will not mention) which was causing me pain.

Dr. Lim identified the problem that my previous dentist had broken the filling and did not repair it correctly, he re performed the corrective procedure, and now it is better than it ever. I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Lim and his friendly staff to any friend.
