Smile Design Implant Centers were founded by Dr. Steve Lim and Dr. Joseph Field with the simple mission of improving the lives of patients who seek to live a healthier and happier life. Their passion is to give patients a confident smile through dental implants. Dr. Lim is a Board Certified Prosthodontist who received his dental and post-graduate degree at Tufts School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Field received his dental degree from USC and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology. Dr. Lim and Dr. Field have been partners and friends for many years and have residences near Lake Tahoe.
There are 36 million Americans who suffer from edentulism (missing all of their teeth). 90% of these patients utilize removable dentures to compensate for their missing teeth. Edentulism affects our most vulnerable populations - the aging and the economically disadvantaged. Consequences of missing teeth include significant nutritional changes, obesity, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and some forms of cancer. Our dentist in South Reno aims to provide patients who suffer from edentulism an avenue to regain their normal quality of life by providing a fixed appliance that utilizes dental implants and Smile Lock technology.
Drs. Lim and Field selected Reno as a great location due to the demand and need for transformational dentistry. They researched how many removable denture labs are located in the greater Reno area and the demographics of the number of patients using removable prostheses.
Having practiced dentistry for a combined 40 years, Dr. Lim and Dr. Field’s passion is in the art and science of replacing missing teeth. They both feel that the most rewarding experience in dentistry is the ability to transform someone’s life by giving them the ability to chew and function as if they had their own teeth.
Dr. Lim and Dr. Field both enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, golfing and spending quality time with their family and friends. They are excited to meet you and look forward to exceeding your expectations.
We at Smile Design Implant Center exist to help our patients transform their lives and improve their health and quality of life. We believe that a beautiful, confident smile equates to a healthier, more fulfilling life. We strive to be the premier practice in dental transformation through service and technology.
