Dr. Lim and Felicia are awesome! (…) I came here to fix my overbite. I’m so happy I found this office because Dr. Lim exceeded my expectations. Not only did he only fix my overbite, but he improved the shape of my teeth, their alignment, and my overall bite. Like many other yelpers have said, Dr. Lim IS A PERFECTIONIST. He was very detail-oriented and dedicated to giving me the perfect smile, always making sure that every unrefined edge of my teeth was polished. I really appreciate his patience and kindness as well as his clear explanations of my Invisalign treatment process. Felicia, his dental assistant, is also super great! She’s so friendly and cheerful, I feel so welcomed every time! I am going to miss coming to this office monthly now that I have completed the Invisalign process. With that being said, I will definitely come back here to get my teeth cleaned or have any other work done in the future!

Dr. Lim has been our family dentist for the past 17 years. We have complete confidence in his expertise for our dental care. He is very thorough in his examination and x-ray analysis to provide the best care for your teeth. Felicia is so great to work always friendly and helpful when setting appointments that work with your schedule. I highly recommend Dr. Lim and staff to family members and friends. Great team! Thank you, Dr. Lim.

Best dentist ever! I am currently doing Invisalign. I have received various dental service from this dentist, Kevin Lim, and found out that he is very knowledgeable and skillful. He is very kind. He will explain every procedure. He will answer all of your questions. I highly recommend Dr. Lim.

Vince H. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dentist, great experience. Dr. Lim appears to be very detail-oriented, skillful, and kind.  He was very responsive to my need.  He did cleaning by himself, instead of letting hygienist do it for him.  The staff at the office were friendly and helpful.  I would highly recommend Dr.Lim.

(…) I’m very glad that I came across this place. I’ve been using his services for some time now (some cavities and wisdom teeth extractions) and haven’t run into any issues. His assistant, Felicia, is also very helpful and has gone out of her way to make me feel comfortable. I sometimes have a bit of anxiety with dentists but they make a great team and have worked very well to make me feel taken care of. His pricing is also very reasonable so you can get the most out of it. Defintely recommend.

I’ve been going to Dr. Lim for over a decade. Excellent and friendly service from him and his staff. They’re always prompt and provide courtesy appointment reminder calls for us busy people. I do recommend him for your dental service needs.

Mariah A. from Perris, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here since 2002, and it takes me about an hour, sometimes an hour and a half depending on traffic and I will continue to make this commute because it is so worth it! Dr.Lim rules! Like most people I used to hate going to the dentist, and would avoid making appointments and going in general but not anymore. Dr.lim is very knowledgeable and will gladly answer any questions or concerns. He always makes sure I’m comfortable, before and even during the procedures. His staff is always! polite, cheerful, and  on top of their stuff. Scheduling is a breeze, and the staff always calls to remind you 24 hours in advance, and are understanding if I need to cancel for whatever reason. Book an appointment, and you will not be disappointed!

Rob S. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Lim is great. Explains things clearly and is meticulous about getting the job done right. Also, gets the work done as fast as possible, no dragging it out over many visits. I am particular about my dental care and highly recommend Dr Lim and his friendly staff.

Davion W. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been here twice for a cleaning and I would definitely recommend Dr. Lim.  He’s very professional, his staff is friendly, and my teeth are clean.  I’ll definitely keep coming back.

Vincent A. from Perris, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lim is the best dentist I’ve ever had! He is amazing. He is professional, friendly, and great at what he does. My family and I have been going to Dr. Lim for almost 8 years now and plan on staying with him as long as possible. I live an hour away from his office but gladly make the drive to Irvine to go see him because he really is such a great dentist! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! I highly recommend anyone to go see him.

Christine P. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


He is by far the best, most thorough dentist I’ve ever been to. He does his own cleaning and scaling. He explained everything that he was about to do and he was gentle and reassuring, always making sure I was comfortable. He is also very honest too. My last dentist said I needed a root canal but Dr. Lim said it wasn’t necessary and just filled the tooth after he looking at my X-rays. I’m so glad I found Dr. Lim. I completely trust him and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Danielle G.from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to doctor Lim for about 5 years now.  I was looking for a dentist who provided Invisalign near my work so appointments would be easy to go to on my lunch breaks.  I was very pleased with the outcome and love my straightened teeth!  I had a cleaning during my Invisalign treatment and was very impressed with his attention to detail and thoroughness, so I decided to change dentists to him full time. Recently I had veneers put on my two front teeth and they look amazing!  I’m upset with myself that I put it off.  Had I known the outcome I would have done it much sooner!  All of his work is exceptional!

Micah I. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent, kind and courteous staff. Very comfortable ambiance. Both nurses and doctors are very gentle and knowledgable. Will be back for regular cleanings and extra teeth necessities!

Dr. Lim did three of my crowns. At the time I wasn’t sure if he did a good job or not. The crowns looked just like all the other ones I had before. 6 years later, when my new dentist saw them, he complimented on those three crowns and not any other ones ( I have many crowns…sadly). That is when I realized Dr. Lim did an outstanding job. It has been about 10 years now since I got them. None of them shows the black ugly line (this happens if the crown is made too short or too thick, etc), but my newer ones from other dentists are already showing black lines. I will always go back to him for crowns in the future.

Vivian T. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is my second time here and I’d have to say that I don’t see myself changing dentists anytime in the near future. I got 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted today and I HATE shots but Dr. Lim and his team were very patient with me and everything went extremely smooth. On top of that, the cleaning and extraction only took an hour and 30 minutes. I didn’t feel any pain and appreciated his attention to detail. A pet peeve of mine is when the dentist and technician aren’t aware of when their tools or hands pinch my lips while they’re working but I didn’t experience any discomfort here; other than my mental psyche tripping me out. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for dental work/cleaning.

Dr. Kevin Lim saved me from a horrible tooth ache. Took me as a walk-in and performed a root canal and prepped my tooth for a crown all in one visit. I am very thankful!

Cheryl A. from Perris, CA (Source: Yelp)

So greatly recommend everyone you try him … Cause once you do you will love him …  promise !!!!!

Felicia and Dr. Lim were amazing! They were so thorough and very gentle. They took the time to explain everything. I was highly impressed- thank you!!

I did a bridge with Dr Lim and did the one with no metal called a “BRUXZIR” cause apparently thats the best kind to do when you clench or grind your teeth. I highly recommend.

Charles C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) this is the best dentist throughout the United States. I have been traveling all over the United States and I always fly back to go to this dentist. He has excellent customer service and has an obsession to create the best customer experience. I 1000% recommend this dentist!

Sandie S. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Google)


Dr. Lim and Felicia provided EXCELLENT care for my boyfriend who was in horrible pain and without a personal dentist at the time. We took a chance on him and have zero regrets.  Felicia who runs the office is very kind and we really appreciated her having Dr. Lim come in on his day off to help us (which we didn’t know was his day off at the time)…it was also very nice of Dr.Lim to do so. At the time my boyfriend didn’t have insurance so we had to pay out-of-pocket, but the prices were very fair and the dental work provided was good.  This will now be the dentist my boyfriend will use moving forward. He was very afraid of the dentist from his past experiences and gave Dr.Lim a little hard time in the beginning but now raves about him to everyone. We highly recommend anyone who is in need of a good dentist that is also affordable.

Alyx D. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great service! Quick and painless. I’ll definitely come back for my next dentist appointment. Dr Lim is very thorough, and Jackie at the front desk is very sweet!

Rudy A. from Perris, CA (Source: yelp)


(…) this review is loong overdue. I have been taking my family here since 2002, so for 15 years, Dr.Lim has been caring for my family. And of those 15 years, I’ve never had any problems. Dr. Lim is the only dentist I will ever trust with my families dental health. Dr.Lim is very knowledgeable in his field, and his work reflects it. His staff is always friendly, and professional. 10/10 I recommend Dr.Lim to everyone I know, even if it’s a bit of a drive it’s well worth it! Don’t waste your time anywhere else!

Sam C. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to see Dr. Lim earlier this year because my old crown had chipped off while chewing something hard. After the X-rays, he mentioned that my crowns were all very old and would need to get them replaced. I had a few root canals and crowns done about 20 years ago and had mistakenly thought that crowns were “forever” and that they didn’t need to be replaced. Oh boy, was I wrong and I sure was glad that Dr. Lim was meticulous enough to let me know! When we eventually got around to opening up one of the crowns, most of my real tooth had decayed and were in real bad shape (not to mentioned it smelled bad). He showed me that much of my real tooth had decayed and I was in real danger of losing what was left of my real tooth. Dr. Lim was really concerned about the condition of my teeth and carefully explained to me how I can take care of my teeth one by one and helped me to create a plan to eventually replace all my old crowns. As he worked through my old crowns over several months, each tooth was in a very bad shape, but Dr. Lim cleaned them out and got me set up with new crowns. Dr. Lim is very knowledgable and flexible and his team works really well together. I’m glad I found Dr. Lim and I would recommend him to anyone, especially to people who have bad teeth like me with old crowns. Get them checked by Dr. Lim, people!

Dr. Lim is an amazing dentist! He is very patient, detail-oriented, and kind. I did an Invisalign treatment at this office and am very pleased with the end result! Like many people before me have said, Dr. Lim is a PERFECTIONIST. After being completely done with my Invisalign, he made sure to polish any unrefined edges of my teeth to make them look aesthetically pleasing. I highly recommend Dr. Lim to anyone looking to improve their smile!

I went to them for a second opinion and they got me in immediately for an unbearable pain on the whole left side of my mouth. I was in and out in about 30 minutes even as a new patient and a referral to the endodontist. They were super friendly and during the consult found out my insurance wasn’t covered but still made sure to get me the best care, my prescription, and referral taken care of. Highly recommend them.
