Dr. Kevin Lim

General Dentist

Born & raised in Toronto, Dr. Lim was fortunate to be exposed to dentistry at a young age; he witnessed the growth of his granduncle’s dental clinic, which was predicated upon hard-work, perseverance, and development of trust among his patients. Following an undergraduate education at Western University, Dr. Lim decided to return home to complete his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at the University of Toronto.  

Not only has Dr. Lim dedicated his time to patients here in the GTA, but he also travelled to communities in Cambodia, Peru, and Panama, where he volunteered to provide dental services to children & adults who lack access to dental care. Dr. Lim also maintains a role at the University of Toronto, teaching dental students as a part-time clinical instructor. 

When not at the clinic, you can find him staying active – whether it be at the gym, walking his dog Summer, or practicing his golf swing. He loves to travel and is always open to suggestions on where to visit next!
