Dr Shereen Lim was one of Australia’s first handful of dentists to obtain a qualification in dental sleep medicine and has a decade of experience working with patients with snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. She is an engaging speaker who is calling for a reformed approach to care.
Rather than managing dysfunctional breathing and its consequences, Dr Lim is focused on promoting airway health. This means reinforcing nasal breathing and promoting good airway development from infancy as keys to sleeping well, thriving, and greater future health.
Dr Lim regularly sees infants to adults and has been able to pinpoint the issues in infancy that lead to bigger problems down the track.
She is passionate about educating child health professionals from a variety of fields to recognise the earliest warning signs of poor airway heath including poor oral function and poor jaw development and promoting collaborative care to address these as early as possible.
Her vision is to help more children receive timely care to breathe, sleep and thrive to their full potential, and avoid growing into more serious problems later in life.
Having spoken locally, nationally and internationally, Shereen can deliver education on a range of topics both in-person and online.
Dr Lim’s audiences have included other dental professionals, ENT surgeons, sleep physicians and pulmonologists, osteopaths, chiropractors, speech pathologists, myofunctional therapists, and lactation consultants.
She has a strong interest in bridging specialities at multi-disciplinary events such as the 2022 Virtual Integrative Airway Summit.
Dr Lim speaks on a range of different topics, and finds the best results are often won through multi-disciplinary events. Bringing together different healthcare professionals can result in the promotion of greater integration between different specialities for improved understanding of a variety of health issues.
Below are some examples of the types of topics Dr Lim covers:
Dental professionals have an important role in screening for sleep disturbed breathing, and risk factors such as deficient jaw development and oral dysfunction.
In addition, they have a role in the team management of dental and oral risk factors to address breathing disorders and developing an optimal airway for children.
This presentation for both dental and non-dental audiences provides an overview of what the dental profession can offer to identify and manage at risk children and relieve the burden of sleep disorders.
