Dr Alan Lim
Graduating from the University of Western Australia in 1984, Dr Alan Lim now has over 30 years’ experience in the dental industry. Dr Lim’s career has seen him practice in rural and suburban areas of WA. Dr Lim has a keen interest in Sleep Medicine and Dentistry, but also enjoys composite bonding, Crown and bridge work, Endodontics, Periodontics, Implants, TMD and Orthodontics.
Dr Lim is passionate about all aspects of Sleep Dentistry and has spent years researching to advance our understanding of Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). His treatment philosophy stems from the belief that there is an additional occlusal and airway connection to TMD.
Alan is currently involved in research in Sleep Medicine (OSA) in conjunction with the University of Western Australia. 15 of his patients were involved in a trial at the University where Dr Lim treated them using the Oventus appliance. His next project with UWA will be compiling a list of retrospective patients treated with DNA Therapy to see it’s effect on bone plasticity.
Even as an experienced dentist Dr Lim recognises that he needs to continue developing to ensure his patients get the best treatment possible. Dr Lim frequently seeks opportunities to learn from his colleagues, and had previously undertaken courses in Restorative Dentistry, Orthodontics and Dental Implants. He is also passionate about teaching the next generation of dentists, regularly lecturing both here in Australia and overseas on Epigenetic Dentistry (DNA Appliance) and OSA.
Away from Maven Dental QV1 Dr Lim loves spending time with his adult son who lives in Tokyo. He is also a talented musician that plays jazz guitar and double bass. Dr Lim also spends most of his Sundays at church with his family.
