About

Our practice

Our dental practice was established in Spring Square in the early 1990s. We offer a comprehensive range of dental treatments for the whole family.

 

At Hallam Smiles, we place your comfort and health care as our main priority. Our commitment is to get to know you personally in order to meet your unique dental needs. We aim to develop an enduring relationship with you for life.

 

Hallam Smiles regularly donates to community projects that help and assist the underprivileged. We currently support Jacob’s Well and Christian Blind Mission (CBM Australia). We also support the community radio station 89.9 LightFM.

Dr. Adrian Lim graduated from the University of Western Australia in 2002 and worked in the suburbs of Ringwood North and Camberwell before he became the principal dentist at Hallam Smiles in 2008.

 

Dr. Lim enjoys engaging with his patients and getting to know them on a personal level. He is much loved by his loyal patients. He is highly skilled in the area of cosmetic dentistry, in particular composite veneers and thoroughly enjoys the satisfaction of rejuvenating a smile. He participates regularly in continuing professional education in order to provide his patients with world-standard, contemporary dental care.

 

Adrian loves his terrariums and his first terrarium is proudly displayed at the reception desk. It consists of a Bonsai pot belly fig with luscious moss. He has started dabbling with gardening and has 

successfully planted spring onions, mint, Vietnamese mint, chives, coriander, sweet basil and chilli plants (the easy ones). He intends to move on to planting tomatoes, lemons and lime soon. 

 

Dr. Lim has two daughters and actually delivered his second baby in the passenger seat of his car on the way

to hospital (It even made the news!). You can definitely trust his safe pair of hands to care for you!

 

Our Team

Tracey

Tracey is our knowledgeable and trustworthy practice manager who brings a vast wealth of experience in both clinical dental assisting and office administration. Tracey has a warm personality and relates well to both parents and their children as she has two teenagers of her own.  She enjoys spending her free time with family and friends and "glamping" (glamorous camping) with her husband. 

 

Kristy

Kristy is compassionate and thoughtful with a special gift for helping nervous patients feel at ease.  She has the best memory when it comes to remembering patients' names. In her spare time, Kristy enjoys travelling and catching up with friends. Kristy is great in the kitchen and is the "official cake maker" when we celebrate our birthdays together. She just went on her honeymoon in 2016 to the Pacific Islands. Feel free to ask her about her cruise as well.

 

Nikki

Nikki is a fresh young face with a bubbly nature who puts children at ease immediately. Her hobbies are going to the beach and socializing with friends. She caught the travel bug in 2014 when she fell in love with the Greek islands of Santorini and Mykonos. Nikki just completed her Certificate 4 in Dental Radiography. 

 

Esther

Esther is the latest addition to our dental team. She is gentle, kind and very perceptive and intuitive to our patients' needs. You will find her to be extremely caring and personable when you meet her. Don't let her initial shyness fool you, she recently sky-dived in Geelong. 

 

Our recall and appointment reminder systems

 

Our practice is committed to preventative care. Research shows that regular dental hygiene and professional maintenance reduces the need for emergency and/or complex treatment. Recall intervals vary from patient to patient depending on the level of their disease risk.

 

We will send you a greeting note when you are due for your next recall. Alternatively, you can schedule your recall appointment at the conclusion of your current treatment.

 

As a courtesy to you, we endeavour to remind you of your next appointment with a phone call or text message (SMS). If you are unable to keep your appointment, please give us at least 24 hours notice so that the time can be allocated to another patient in need of urgent treatment.
