With his love for animals, he completed his undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley majoring in Integrative Biology before pursuing dentistry at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. A self-proclaimed coffee addict, you may see him at local café’s sipping coffee while eagerly reading online journals and papers about the latest research and updates in dental medicine as he is a committed to advanced and continuing education.
Dr. Shin first became interested in dentistry while volunteering at the Berkeley Food and Housing project in Berkeley, California where he became introduced to free clinic programs. The free clinic included a variety of health programs including dentistry. Dr. Shin continues to dedicate his time at various volunteer programs today.
As a dentist, Dr. Shin is passionate about providing excellent dental care in the form of empowerment by helping people understand that they have complete control of their situations. “My job as a dentist is not about just fixing teeth, it’s about helping people understand what is going on and how it’s happening so that together we can make the best decision on what to do. I understand that even coming to the dental clinic may not be easy for some and so my goal is to help relieve any fears people may have about dentistry through patient education.”
Dr. Shin’s hobbies outside of dentistry includes making pasta from scratch, going on road trips, and watching YouTube videos of boxer puppies. He also enjoys spending time with his family and friends, biking, and wants to learn how to fish.
