Meet Dr. Lim
“Orthodontic treatment can have a strong positive effect on patients’ lives. I am happy if I can contribute in any way to their future success and achievements.”
With a career in orthodontics spanning 21 years, Dr. Bernard Lim continues to be passionate about each day on the job. His constant pursuit of excellence has helped to fuel his reputation as a doctor who cares deeply about each patient, working to help them achieve a perfect smile that will boost their confidence and self-esteem. His gratification in watching his patients emerge as successful individuals is part of what makes him so compelling, in addition to his dedication to modern practices and techniques, and his desire to make each individual feel like the unique person he or she is.
Education and Experience
Dr. Lim received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of British Columbia in 1989 and went on to receive a Master of Science in dentistry degree and a Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Washington in 1991. His complete dedication to remaining current in the constantly evolving field of orthodontics has kept him involved in continuing education, participating in orthodontic study clubs, with one for fellow orthodontic colleagues and one as a mentor to other dentists. He also teaches at the University of British Columbia Dental School as an Assistant Clinical Professor, previously in the undergraduate dental program and now in the graduate orthodontic program.
Because of Dr. Lim’s commitment to creating the best possible atmosphere in his office, he has attracted an equally professional and caring staff. Each member of his team cares about each patient, forming a bond with everyone as they try to make the treatment experience as easy, fun, and stress-free as possible.
