Dr Lim Wen Yi is a Consultant with the Endodontic Unit of the Restorative Department in the National Dental Centre. Dr Lim received her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Dentistry in 2011 with Dean’s List in the third and final year of undergraduate dental school. Following which, she pursued specialty training in Endodontics and obtained her Master of Dental Surgery (MDS) from NUS in 2016. She was a recipient of the Society of Endodontists Singapore Medal for achieving a Distinction at the Final NUS MDS Conjoint Exams with Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh.
Dr Lim began her research journey back when she was an endodontic resident where she pursued the learning of pulp histological techniques with the renown Dr Domenico Ricucci. Following the completion of her Master’s thesis on the histology of dental pulps indicated for vital pulp therapy, she persisted in her interest in this field of pulp biology. She was awarded the Oral Health ACP Budding Clinician Researcher Award to work with Professor David Becker on the study of a gap junction protein, Connexin 43, in dental pulps. Her doctorate research under Professor Becker allowed her to delve into the basic science and translational aspects of modulating connexin 43 in the treatment of pulpitis (dental pulp inflammation). Her research skillset includes clinical trials, wet-bench lab research and animal model studies (rodent/porcine). She received the IADR Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group Student Award in 2020 for her work in dental pulp therapeutics. She completed her PhD training with Professor Becker in 2022, and still maintains clinical practice in endodontics while concurrently being involved in research and academic/clinical teaching.
