Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Rain S. from Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was extremely nervous about getting a root canal it was driving me crazy for days but Dr. Nwachokor made it feel so easy and normal and absolutely painless, I recommend him 100%. I never write yelp reviews but this was so necessary because a dentist has never made me feel so secure and I really felt he was looking out for my best interest. Thank you!

I have been a patient of Dr. Lim’s for over 25 years and can honestly say that he is “second to none” Over the years I have had fillings, crowns, root canals and even veneers – all done to perfection. I cannot recommend Dr. Lim highly enough and with an added plus that he has the most pleasant, accommodating staff one could wish for. Megan 🙂

Dr. Lim has been our family dentist since 1994. My sister’s introduced him to me. Now he’s also our children’s dentists. The only time my kids and I stopped coming was when I switched insurance. I failed to check if Dr. Lim was in their network. Trust me when I say that I regretted it. the service I was provided at the new dentist was below Dr. Lim standards. I am glad we are back!

Edwin V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


From the moment I first walked in and till today Claudia V. has always been there to walk me through every process in a very professional manner! Providing excellent customer service to every person that walks in whether it’s a patient or someone who just wants to know general information. From my experience I strongly recommend this place! Don’t hesitate to call for an appointment. Have for granted you’ll be taken care of. So I want to thank the whole team and thank you Claudia once again for always taking care of everyone!

Veronica S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to this office for years,  for check ups, cleaning and fillings. The doctors and hygienists have always done a great job on taking care of my needs. The front staff if very friendly and professional. The rooms are separate from each other. The chairs are Heavenly,  doesn’t even feel like a dental chair) . They have TV’s in each room. The hygienists do a thorough job on cleaning.  Doctor Shanna Lim   is amazingly Detailed when she checks your mouth, treats you as if you were her family. I recommend this office to all of my friends and family.

Keith P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I love coming to Dr. Lim for all our dental needs. Great customer service and they do an amazing job on all our teeth. I personally dislike going to the dentist, but the staff definitely makes one feel comfortable. Clean office, wonderful honest staff. Always a great experience. It is also pretty awesome that Dr. Lim personally calls to wish us a happy birthday every year!

Ian S. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a huge job interview and wanted my smile nice and bright! Yesterday, I called to make a last minute appointment to get my teeth cleaned. This office was very accommodating and took me in. What I found out was that George Lim actually cares about his clients. He cleaned and buffed my teeth to the point where it looked like I scheduled a teeth whitening! He even called me in the morning to wish me luck and to tell me he knows I will get the job. Doctor George Lim made my dental experience perfect. He is everything you want in a dentist and more. I would recommend him to everyone!

I found Dr.Lim office by online browsing and I didn’t make a wrong choice. All the staffs and Dr. Lim are not just friendly but easy to talk and discuss with all the helps that you need. The dental office is small but all of the equipment are handy and near by so I saved a lot of time by just sitting on the chair for taking x-ray and so on. The office is very clean too. It opens on Saturday so it’s very good for as I have to work from Monday through Friday. I did my implant so I am very looking forward to have my final finishing. Thank you Dr. Lim and all. I recommend that you won’t be disappoint to have Dr.Lim as your dentist.

Ashley Z. from Central LA, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My mom has been a patient with Dr Lim, for years now and she loves him! I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed and Dr Lim made sure the procedure went as smooth as possible. I was comfortable watching Netflix while having an amazing staff taking care of me. The assistant helping during this procedure was the absolute best, he helped ease my mind and was rooting me along the way! The thing about Dr Lim is he loves what he does, he’ll show it through his friendliness, sense of humor, and the way he cares for a patient. He explained the procedure and all throughout made sure I was okay and in no pain. Kind enough to check up on me the following day. My recovery was easy and I would totally recommend Dr. Lim and his staff 110%.

Nicholas S. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lim and his staff are amazing! I had a mysterious toothache, it was my first time going to the dentist in 4 years, and Dr.Lim helped me figure out the source of the mysterious pain very easily. The facilities are excellent. Everything was quick and easy and very affordable. Dr. Lim himself has a great attitude and was fun to speak with. Also, they have a TV and Netflix for every dentist’s chair. When I walked in, my TV was playing the Lord of the Rings, which as far as I’m concerned earns this Dentist an A+

Jennifer G. from Lynwood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just went in to get my wisdom tooth pulled out and let me tell you it went by super quick and didn’t feel a thing. Dr. Lim sure knows what he’s doing. I really recommend him to everyone. The staff is super friendly and nice. Excellent customer service. Well deserved 5 star review!!!

Igor K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had a really good experience today at Dr. Lim’s office. Everyone in the office, from the lady at the front desk and the manager, to the dental assistant and the dentist was very friendly, welcoming and professional. I had a fair amount of work done and it was really well done, painless and thorough. I’m going again to finish the rest of the stuff and I’m highly recommending this excellent dental office.

Jamie Michelle P. from East Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lim has been my doctor for years now. He’s so sweet and funny. I just got my wisdom teeth taken out, and it’s literally been no problem. He sends out phone calls for your birthday and calls in to make sure post-dental surgery is going well. He also reminds you that you can always call if anything arises. Very personable man. I trust him with all my dental needs.

Juanita A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is by far the best dentist I’ve been to! I’ve been going here since I was 8 years old (now going on 25) and haven’t changed my dentist at all. So they know the ins and outs of my teeth. They’re always accommodating and checking on how I’m doing the following day after a procedure. The doctors are great and Maritza at the front desk is extremely helpful! Dr. Lim (the owner) is the best dentist in town! I’m such a big baby when it comes to going to the dentist but when I’m there I know I’m in good hands & am very comfortable with all the doctors there. Thanks guys for always taking care of me!

Pamela F. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Lim’s office since I was a teenager with braces. He was actually the one who recommended I’d need braces. Now, married, I also take my husband with me. I’ve never been a fan of going to the Dentist, for obvious reasons (pain), but now as an adult I have less of that to worry about since I take better care of my teeth (with the help of Dr. Lim). Staff here are always very pleasant and helpful. I like the fact that they don’t beat around the bush and let you know straight forward what work you need done and how much it’ll it cost (or whether its covered by insurance). One thing I’ve always admired of Dr. Lim is how much he values his patients. He has always taken the time to call me every year for my birthday. Thanks for all you do Dr. Lim and staff!

May C. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Service overall is great and staff is friendly at the office.   My first visit, I had a regular cleaning and that night I got a personal call from Dr. Lim to check on me to see how I was doing. Most surprisingly, I later got another call from Dr. Lim on my birthday with him singing happy birthday to me on the phone!  It was really endearing and of course unexpected =) I’ve since had another small procedure on my gum and the follow up has also been great.  I believe when choosing a health care professional, it’s most important that you are serviced by someone who seems to genuinely care about you and your health. Highly recommended!

Megan B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Lim for the past 25 years and he is fantastic.  I have recommended over 30 people to him and everyone of them are now faithful patients.  He does great work and his prices are very reasonable.  For the people I have sent there who have financial problems, he works with them and has a good payment plan.  I have never recevied a complaint from the patients I have referred.  I have only been to the Culver City office, so I cannot speak for his other venues.  I used to go to his mentor but followed him when he opened up his own practice and have never regretted my decision.

T. J. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Lim for about 15 years.  He is patient, gentle, and kind, with an upbeat personality. He is very knowledgeable about the newest technology in dentistry which makes each visit easier. I am a wimp when it comes to dentists and he and his team are very understanding and gentle with care. My job stopped providing insurance that he accepts and I was forced to go to another dentist. After trying 2 different dentists with a very poor experience,  I’ve come back to Dr. Lim because I would rather pay as a cash patient and get great quality care, than to go where my job covers for free and get mediocre service. I recommend him 100%!!

Carolyn H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient here for several years and have received excellent service. The personnel is very welcoming and delivers truthful feedback. Dr. Lim never fails to leave a smile on my face with clean teeth!

Angel Miner (Source: Google)


I have been to this dental office a few times now and I can honestly say I love it. I have bad anxiety when it comes to the dentist but this office makes me feel very comfortable, which makes the treatment process so much more easier for me. They have a great staff and the Doctors are all amazing as well. I would highly recommend this office.

Paola F. from East Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommended! I first visited the office a few months ago, waited for a referral for a root canal and wisdom teeth extraction.  The process was quick. The front office is excellent with answering questions and calling back to schedule appointments.  The office itself is very clean and up to date.  Free Netflix (that’s a huge plus).  Dr. Lim is very experienced and professional.  He talks to his patients and gets to know them and their concerns. He actually advice me on some healthy lifestyles.  I had a root canal yesterday, followed by two wisdom teeth extractions and one filing. No pain today!  The process went so smooth and I felt comfortable throughout.  The technician was so gentle and explained what was happening every time I asked. Check this place out!

Kimberly K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had to find a dentist for my mother as she had a painful tooth infection and needed a emergency extraction. I called all around and I could not find anyone with high ratings that could take her to! I finally found this office! Claudia was so genuine and caring to the fact that my mom was in pain and she immediately squeezed her in! Everyone has been so kind and accommodating. The office is clean, professional and organized. They make you feel welcomed so much so that they even gave us roses for Valentines Day! They are not trying to up sale you with procedures you do not need, they are honest and efficient. My mom is in good hands and I’m so relieved I have found this dentist office as now I have even scheduled and appointment for myself! Thank you so much to Claudia and the Staff! 🙂

I have been going to Dr Lim’s office for over 10 years now and I have always been super impressed with the work he has done. When I was little I hated going to the dentist and I would refuse to let Dr Lim anywhere near my teeth, but I am thankful that Dr Lim and the staff were very patient with me. I have had cavity fillings, crowns, root canals, and my wisdom teeth pulled out while I was awake. Not once did I feel any pain or had any problems. I also had very crooked teeth and I recently finished my treatment with Invisalign and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I finally have the straight teeth I’ve always wanted. Dr Lim is an amazing dentist and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. It’s hard to find a dentist that you can trust and Im happy that I can trust Dr Lim.

Catherine J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to this dental office since I was a kid. So basically I grow up with some of the staff. Staff here are top-notch! You walk into a friendly greeting always and when it comes to the finance they are very flexible and will work with you. I hated going to the dentist. It was always scary but it doesn’t have to be when you go here

Rosalio M. from Escondido, CA (Source: Yelp)


They have four locations but I visited the office on Vermont. I had a wonderful experience from start to finish of my process. The office staff/assistant were remarkable and where able to help me with all my concerns and needs. I really recommend coming to this office, they are very friendly and want you to walk out of there office with the best experience as well as smile.

Suki M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Sunday morning my 3 year old boy broke his tooth and he was in a pain. I had to find a dentist to see him immediately since I was not sure how serous it is. Dr Lim was not only willing to,see him on Sunday, but also his assistant came and opened the office just to see my son. He tried to save the too the but it was not possible, and he made a very quick and easy extraction of the tooth. Few hours later my son was at the birthday party having fun like nothing ever happened. This is what I call dedication. Thank you Dr. Lim.

Abby B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Due to this virus going on, George D. Lim still had me come in when my previous dentist deny me because my situation wasn’t painful enough to see me. I use to come to George D. lim when I was a kid and stopped, but after today I’m coming back! Thank you to the staff and DR. for your dedication to the patient! Thank you also for the cleanliness even though I KNOW VERY WELL that Dr. Lim always stays clean and professional since I was a kid! It was nice to see the team again.

Adrian Z. from La Cañada Flintridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had really good experiences coming to Dr. Lim’s offices. I had not gone to a dentist for many years prior to my visit, and despite thoroughly caring for my teeth, I was in need of 3 fillings (old ones gone bad). If any one is surprised by that information, don’t be, I expected it. There are so many habits that can affect your teeth, like drinking coffee, tea, soda, grinding your teeth, acid reflux, nutrient deficiency, etc. Preventative care is just one aspect for the overall health of your teeth, and thereby, a prolonged period of time without checkups is going to increase your chance for complications. Caring for your teeth isn’t cheap for a lot of people, but if done so regularly it should prevent way more expensive problems from emerging. I’ve had Dr. Lim and Dr. Lee work on my teeth, and they were great compared to prior experiences with other practices. The staff is super polite and the facility on Vermont Avenue is nice (I like it more than the one on Sunset). If you think there may be a better alternative than the options recommended to you, talk about it and get a better understanding for what was recommended. I had a chip on my front tooth and was told the option that would be less prone to damage was a crown, but because of the cost and my having most of the tooth still, decided to get it bonded. I’m very happy with the result. I know that it has a greater chance of failure, but I’m cool with it, and I could’ve just not done anything. They do a great job and are straight forward. MediCal covers fillings, so I paid for the bonding and for night guards to prevent grinding my teeth, it all was around $385. If you want to complain about cost, just start oil pulling.

I LOVE THIS OFFICE! I have been a patient here for about 3 years now. I USED to DREAD going to the dentist office, they would always “find” costly “work” that needed to be done immediately. NOT Dr. Lim‘s office. I am originally from the midwest. I was raised around a whole different style or culture-if you will. As you can imagine, Los Angeles is pretty much everything BUT what I grew up with. The moment I stepped into this office I was warped into that “small town vibe”. Every person behind the desk greeted me with warm smiles & the atmosphere was really comforting & calm. They called me back & all of the staff I passed greeted me with smiles. Not creepy smiles, but sincere smiles. You can definitely tell these people LOVE what they do & CARE about their people. 6 months later, I went in for the 2nd time. I was early for my appointment. As SOON as I walked in the door, they greeted me with a warm welcome. They remembered my name before I even signed in! They remembered my boyfriend who also previously went there. They made a conversation with me like we’d been friends forever! It was soooo amazing! They all make me feel so valued for choosing them. I had x-rays taken & saw that my wisdom teeth were growing horizontally towards my other teeth. I asked Dr. Lim if he thought I should have them removed. He was completely honest & said, generally he only recommends having them removed if they’re causing pain, because there’s no way to know how much they’ll keep moving. He could’ve EASILY said ABSOLUTELY if money was what he was concerned about. I opted to have them removed due to fear of making the rest of my teeth crooked. 3 of them were under the bone, so Dr. Lim did the surgery himself. I happened to come down with a horrible virus the week before my surgery. I almost rescheduled the surgery but chose not to because I specifically took a week off of work to recover. I was feeling awful the day of surgery. I had all 4 removed at the same time. Halfway through I almost told him to stop & I’d come back because I felt so sick. He said we’re almost done & removed the last 2 it felt like instantly! He was so gentle! He made me feel comfortable considering my situation. Because of my virus I was bedridden for a few days. He called to check up on me! My boyfriend had called him a couple times to get different pain killers because I didn’t react well to two of them. Dr. Lim checked on me probably 3 days that week. I had to go back in to get a special mouthwash for the infection. I just couldn’t believe how easy they were to get a hold of 24 hours, and how pleasant they were ALL THE TIME! He made jokes when he saw me because he didn’t expect me to swell too bad, but my face almost DOUBLED in size! I was all bruised. He made me laugh. He calls us on our birthdays. I actually look forward to my appointments to share whatever’s been going on in my life with him & his team. He’s all about doing the right thing and not only taking care of his patient’s, but his staff. I could go on and on about this office. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to my teeth if this office is an option!

Juvixa C. from Huntington Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this office!!! I’ve been coming in for more than a decade! All the dentist are professional, knowledgeable, and very nice. The front desk are kind, friendly, and very customer service oriented. Luckily I have insurance so I visit on the regular every six months. The cleaning are always well done. Wish I could come on a monthly basis 🙂 The best part of my visits is the nice incentive of a free new brush. Due to my regular visit I haven’t had any major work done (phew) so I really can’t review that type of work. Also, who usually gets a birthday call from their dentist? Me!! Dr. Lim is the best

Kelsey O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying, I am currently sitting in the dental chair… I am having a great time! Seriously, Dr. Lim is hilarious and his staff is hilarious. They are making me feel super relaxed and comfortable in , what could be a super uncomfortable and nerve wracking situation. I was super impressed the moment I walked in. Incredible clean  waiting room and very welcoming front office staff. Back of the house was just as clean! And not to mention each “work” station has its own TV! I’ve never experienced that, again it just adds to the comfort of the place. I’m really really happy my boyfriend recommended Dr. Lee’s office. Also a shout out to Claudia the office manager for really helping me out today! Was not expecting today to be that kind of day. Ugh dang you teeth and you issues. But seriously thank you guys for making a bad day much much better

Carol R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Lim’s  for many, many years.  From the first time I met  Dr. Lim he made me feel comfortable & I trust him totally. He does absolutely perfect work for which I never had any problems.  I moved away for a few years & have recently gone back to see him.  I had 2 molars extracted today (due to my neglect) by Dr. Lee ( as Dr. Lim was away).  He was also awesome.  The staff is amazing & very considerate & kind.  It was nice to see after all these years 2 of the nurses are still there!  I have also, through the years, recommended many friends & I would highly recommend them to whoever reads this!!!!

Cindy E. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I realy appreciate DR Lim and his staff .every one is pleasant and professional .DR Lim has shown me nonthing but respect and goes over and beyond what I would generally exspect from a Dentist .After my much needed extraction it was nice to hear from him the next day to see how I was doing and called me back after hrs to answer my concerns and again called to see if I was 100% reffear paishents to his office .thank you DR lim and staff for all your great care .

Mary F. from Chino, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Lim’s for yrs. He was highly recommended to me to begin with & now I pass that on. Don’t let his “no frills” office exterior dissuade you. It is his way of reducing costs for patient care. Inside, he has the best dental equipment, everything is so clean and the furnishings are tasteful. Everyone there is professional, yet very compassionate. (I even like the tacky, (to some), holiday decorations that are put up. I celebrate holidays so that every day won’t be the same.LOL) I hope your experience with this office is as positive as mine has been. ~(:-)
