He was very patient and pleasant with my 2-year old on his first dentist visit. I could not ask for friendlier staff or a cleaner, more kid-friendly environment. We had a great experience and would recommend Dr. Lin to anyone!

This is my son’s first dental appointment and he refused to open his mouth for checking. But Dr Lin was so patient and finished the checking smoothly, making my son so happy.
