Home page:

Dr Lim Swee Teck was born in Perak, Malaysia. He graduated from the University of Singapore in Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1965. Along with a Bronze medal for academic performance in his third year, he went on to join the University as a Teaching Assistant. Through the experience, he developed an interest in managing and treating children.

In 1968 he became a Research Fellow with the School of Postgraduate Medical Scholarship allowing him to further graduate in Master of Surgery in 1970. Following this graduation, he was awarded the prestigious Fulbright Hayes Scholarship for Pediatric Dentistry at the Ohio State University, Columbus USA. Continuing his studies and researching in Pediatric Dentistry, Dr Lim graduated in Master of Science (Pedodontics) with a Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry in 1972.

Returning to Singapore as the second pediatric dentist and the first male specialist in the country, he joined the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Singapore. Together with Dr Yong Siu Len, the first Pediatric Dentist (Michigan State University) in Singapore, a new pediatric dentistry department was formed where programs, research, treatment, management and the art of communicating with children were developed.

With several years of teaching and research, Dr Lim moved into the untapped private sector. He continued his research and refined his management techniques with children. A modern day pioneer in improving communication with children, Dr Lim began to see results. Today, his patients return as parents with their children to Dr Lim with no fears, no excuses but joy and cherish memories of their early visits.

The final goal of Dr Lim next to his uplifting role in improving and caring for societyís dental health is to write and publish books on his vast and rich experiences in pediatric dentistry. This would be a legacy and a tribute for the children, the parents and his colleagues who have shared their knowledge, their care and their experience in treating children.

This dream is fulfilled with the publication of Healthy Smile Series that will provide information and education in preparing children for dental health care and itís various procedures that they will encounter.
