Continuing her education journey, she completed a General Practice Residency with the University of British Columbia and Vancouver General Hospital in 2003.

The hands-on aspect of dentistry resonates deeply with Dr. Lum. She enjoys the tactile engagement of working with her hands and this extends outside of the office to the creative pastimes of sewing, knitting/crochet and occasional jewellery making.

Born and raised in British Columbia, Dr. Lum‘s entire life is rooted in this region. Apart from professional engagements, she enjoys travel and other active pursuits.

The most fulfilling aspect of dentistry for Dr. Rigo is observing the positive transformation in individuals’ self-esteem through skillful interventions. Although not actively engaged in volunteering at the moment, Dr. Rigo finds contentment in making a meaningful impact on patients’ lives. A cherished pastime involves leisurely strolls along the beach, often in the company of the beloved canine companion, Nala. Guided by the motto “Dreams do come true!”, Dr. Rigo draws inspiration to keep reaching for the stars.
