ABOUT DR. LIM

We are incredibly delighted to welcome Dr. Lim to the Dental Derby team! On January 6, 2020, Dr. Lim joined us on a part-time basis, providing support for Dr. Cangas, both while he's in the office and while he's away fulfilling his Army Reserves obligations.

Dr. Lim comes from a long family history of dentistry, as she is a 4th generation dentist, and both of her parents are dentists. She is certified with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Loma Linda University, and completed her General and Pediatric Dentistry Residencies at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, where she was chief resident. She has participated in several dental mission trips that taken her to New Mexico, Thailand, Guyana, and Guatemala.

Outside of her professional life, Dr. Lim is a busy mom of two young girls. She is excited to join the Dental Derby team, to become part of this strong community, and to explore her new home state of North Carolina!

Please be sure to give her a warm Moore County welcome if you see her in the office!
