Your Mooroolbark Dental Team
Dr Joe Lim
Dr Joe Lim graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Otago in 2015. After four years practising dentistry in New Zealand, he moved to Melbourne in 2020. Having grown up in a multicultural country, he is fluent in both English and Mandarin Chinese.
Joe believes that visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be a scary experience. He strives to provide comprehensive dental care in a safe, pleasant and comfortable environment. His gentle and reassuring manner is his greatest asset in making this happen. Joe has a passion and particular interest in restorative dentistry, to repair damaged or worn teeth allowing their natural structure and function to return.
As a lifelong learner, Joe is currently aiming to complete a Certificate in Implant Dentistry from ITI (International Team of Implantology) and the University of Melbourne School of Dentistry.
Away from the dental chair, Joe relaxes by playing the violin (he holds an Associate Diploma in classical violin performance from Trinity College London!) He also enjoys long walks with his wife Ashley and their young spoodle dog. You may also hear him cheering on the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA basketball competition.
Dr Jamie Kang
Born and raised in Melbourne, Dr Jamie Kang undertook the Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Monash University as part of the Scholar’s Program. In 2018, he completed the Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Melbourne.
During his dental studies, Jamie travelled to Kampong Speu in Cambodia, where a team of dentists and dental students volunteered to provide dental care to people in remote communities. This project was close to Jamie’s heart because both of his parents migrated to Australia from Cambodia.
Jamie is exceptionally skilled in working with anxious patients to help them overcome their fear. Jamie’s gentle manner makes it easy for his patients to feel as comfortable as possible.
He enjoys practising all areas of dentistry, with a particular interest in root canal therapy and cosmetic dentistry. Jamie is a keen participant in regular professional development courses so he can keep up with the latest research and technology in evolving dental fields.
Outside of dentistry, Jamie spends his time reading epic fantasies and spends time with his friends playing games. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, going to the gym and watching reality TV shows. Any other downtime Jamie has, he spends watching anime and dreaming about going back to Japan.
