Extensive Investments for a better Dental Treatment

We also have an extensive network of specialists that we refer to for comprehensive/advanced cases. 

We invite you to check out our Smile Gallery for some of the work that we’ve done in the past few months.

We’re conveniently located inside a small medical building on 32nd and Wallace, few blocks away from White Sox stadium off 35th or 31st exit on highway 90. On site parking lot is available for our patients.

We invested heavily in technology/equipment for this Dental office in our first year. 


Use of the Best Tech

We always wanted to provide the highest quality of care to our patients. We follow universal infection control protocols, ADA recommended guidelines in everything we do. 

We practice low dosage digital radiography. There’s an in-office cone beam CT scanner to identify important anatomical landmarks and pathologies. We also practice phlebotomy from time to time to be used with our centrifuge in bone graft/bone regeneration cases. 

We place Hiossen implants, but we also restore a wide range of implants systems (Hiossen, Nobel Biocare, Zimmer, Straumann)

USP of Dr Shawn Lin and our team

We treat all our patients as if we were to treat our family members, and that’s the highest level of care any dentist can provide.

We would not place that filling in your mouth if it weren’t good enough to be put in our own mouth.

We don’t spend any money on advertising; most of our patients came to us via word of mouth.

Every dentist we know hates talking about fees with patients, and so do we. Dental fees have been rising significantly in Chicagoland while insurance reimbursement had been stagnant for the past 20 years, insurance often dictates treatment plans and we’re afraid we have to disagree with that philosophy.

We would say that our fees are very competitive, and we offer up to 24 months interest-free financing through CareCredit.

If you have any concerns about your oral health, call us to make an appointment even if you have no insurance.

New patients at our office receive a free exam. We are in a network with just about every kind of dental insurance, and we accept all Medicaid patients except Meridian (they closed enrollment).

What makes Dr Shawn Lin Unique

Dr Shawn Lin is a general dentist, having practised in very rural areas of the Midwest. Many of our patients on Medicaid had nowhere to go within a 3-hour driving distance. 

Dr Lin had extracted close to 2000 teeth in his first year of practising dentistry. He travels around the country at least three times a year to attend classes and dental conventions to stay up to date with modern dentistry. 

He visits local dental study club monthly to learn from local Oral Surgeons, Periodontists, Endodontists, Prosthodontists, Orthodontists and other General Dentists.

We understand Bridgeport is a diverse neighbourhood, our staff are native English, Chinese, and Spanish speakers to suit your needs.

We hope this is not your run of the general mill description of every other dental office on the internet. By now you should have an idea of who we are, and what we do. Please give us a call/email to book an appointment. We can’t wait to meet you.
