Biography

Hi there, I'm Dr. Yim! I opened my first practice in 1972 in Steongate Plaza, after 30 years there I moved my practice to its new location on the Queensway. I graduated from the University of Toronto's Faculty of Dentistry in 1988 and was a clinical instructor there between 1999 to 2011. In my spare time I love playing tennis, I'm the Vice President of the Board of Valley Tennis club. I enjoy staying active, especially long distance running for a good cause.

What are you proud of in your practice?

We consider our patients to be part of the Park Lawn Dental family. Our professional team will go above and beyond to make your visit to our practice comfortable and pleasant!

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I have a special interest in implant dentistry, and completed my mini residency in 2004. My passion for implant dentistry is rooted in my commitment to help my patients achieve their optimal dental health. I love how a brand new smile can bring patients confidence and comfort.

    The hygienist Irene and Dr. Chin were friendly and efficient. The office is modern and comfortable. Claim submitted directly to my insurance was great and done even before I could get my coat on. :)

    Had the opportunity to meet Dr.Yim recently. Him and his team went over and above to discover issues that could have been fixed previously and that today could have major consequences to my oral health. Good thing proper actions are being taken with referrals and expertise.

    The hygienist was very knowledgeable and thorough. Dr. Yim was also great and easy going. They found 2 cavities and were able to address some sensitivity issues I recently started to experience.They were both able to recommend some great at home care tips and products to use. Will definitely be following their recommendations.
