Dr. Kelly Lim attended Canadian University College, now called Burman University in Alberta, Canada for her undergrad and earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. She has served the Inland Empire for nearly a decade.
As a dentist, it is important for her to make her patients feel as comfortable as possible when they are at the dental chair. She recognizes that unfortunately many patients have dental anxiety. It could be from past experiences, uncomfortable noises rumbling in the head, local anesthesia, feeling a loss of control, no clear explanation, or just because it looks scary. She likes to take her time to get to know her patients so that those anxieties could be eased. She says one of the best parts of her job is seeing her patients smile brighter with confidence and the look of satisfaction after treatment. She also believes it is important to serve the community. She currently serves in the United States Army Reserve and has served on multiple mission trips including Mexico, Philippines, and Haiti.
In her downtime, she like to go for a jog, hike, and walk with her husband and her fur baby, Poodle-Bichon-Terrier mix, Fluffy. She loves the nice ocean breezes from California’s sunny beaches, exploring new places, and trying out authentic food from different cultures. It is one of her life goals to grow old and be able to play the piano comfortably without music and change keys and cords freely.
What Patients Say About Our Clinic
First of all, Dr. Lim and his friendly staff provided us the best service. Dr. Lim took us in after office hours for an emergency tooth extraction for my 5 year old grandson. My grandson has seen a lot of dentists and many attempted to extract that problematic tooth but he is so scared that we were advised to go to Indio or Loma Linda where he can be put to sleep to get the tooth extracted. Guess what? Dr. Lim was able to extract his tooth while my grandson was awake. He is not just a good dentist...he is great, thank you again Dr. Lim!!!
I am thrilled I found Dr. Lim. I went into dental office and meet Dr. Lim and his kindhearted staff. Dr. Lim is knowledgeable, patient, gentle and very caring Dentist. I like Dr. Lim very much and would highly recommend him to family and friends. My husband needs filling and I took him to see Dr. Lim. After treatment, my husband agreed he is a great dentist.
Met with Dr. Lim today regarding a fractured molar. I am delighted to have arrived home with a brand new molar. Dr. Lim is truly patient, kind and so friendly. I feel I have discovered a new friend. He was very clear while describing every step of his work. It's my pleasure to recommend him to anyone needing dental help. Thank You Dr. Lim....You Rock!!!
