"I am passionate about helping people breathe and sleep easier."

Dr. Shereen Lim

The thing I enjoy most about work is:

Helping people breathe and sleep easier.  In adults with snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea, I can help with dental devices that open the airway during sleep.   In children, I help address problems like mouth breathing through a combination of approaches.
