Dr. Lihong Lin, DDS is a dentist who practices in Wilmette, IL.Read her story
This content was provided by Dr. Lin "My biggest joy is to see the beautiful smiles of my patients and watch their self-esteem grow as their teeth become straighter. I also enjoy personally getting to know each and every one of my patients and spend time with them to really understand their specific concerns and needs. I do not have a big family, so I always feel as though my patients are part of my Plaza Orthodontics family as we travel through the journey of building a beautiful smile together. My family is originally from South Korea, but I grew up in China. I have completed my dental education at The Fourth Military Medical University in Xi’an, China as an honor student. I worked as a clinical assistant professor in the same university for two years upon graduation and I spent another five years in the same university to earn my PhD degree in prosthodontics. Thereafter, I came to United States to join my husband who was then a research assistant professor at University of Illinois at Chicago. Following three years of research at UIC on mechanical properties of dental composite materials, I decided to go back to my clinical practice and spent another 3 years at UIC to receive my Master’s degree and certificate in orthodontics. Even though I have spent many years at school, I still enjoy going to continuing education courses to stay on top of cutting edge technologies. I am an active member of American Association of Orthodontics, Illinois Society of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, and Chicago Dental Society. My husband is also an orthodontist and a full time assistant professor. We have one son who is currently a student at Marquette University. My hobbies are traveling, fishing and learning new languages. I am fluent in English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Whatever your orthodontic problem, Plaza Orthodontics can be your solution!
