Solana Beach and Encinitas Dental Practice Grows Pediatric Dentistry Specialty

Accomplished pediatric dentist joins North County San Diego's premier pediatric dental and orthodontics practice

Great Smiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, a dual specialty dental practice serving North County coastal communities for over 30 years with offices in Solana Beach and Encinitas, has added Dr. Lorraine Y. Lin DDS to expand its pediatric dental team and enhance the highly personalized care delivered to its patients. Dr. Lin is a Southern California native who has been practicing pediatric dentistry since 2007 and is currently on staff at Rady Children's Hospital.

Joining Great Smiles' pediatric dentists Crystal Angelopoulos and William Rawlings, Dr. Lin will provide comprehensive primary, preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs. Dr. Rawlings first saw Dr. Lin's exceptional work while helping refine her skills as her teacher at Rady Children's Hospital where Dr. Lin completed her pediatric dental residency.

"Lorraine's compassion for patients, approach to treatment and communication style aligns perfectly with our patient experience goals at Great Smiles," said Dr. Rawlings. "She's a natural fit for our practice and, as the communities we serve steadily grow, will help us continue to provide the high quality care our patients expect."

As a mother to a two year old daughter, Dr. Lin understands the importance of two-way communication for effective treatment and creating a positive dental experience for children. Dr. Lin emphasizes open dialog with patients to create a fun, caring environment and achieve lasting results.

"I'm excited to be back in San Diego and have the opportunity to delivery vibrant, healthy smiles for families within our community," said Dr. Lin. "I look forward to developing personal relationships with patients and their families and being their trusted provider of pediatric dentistry in North County."

Dr. Lin graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2003 after earning her undergraduate degree from UCLA. Dr. Lin is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the California Dental Association (CDA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD).

Residing in North County, Dr. Lin enjoys traveling, yoga and spending time outdoors with her family.
