Dr. Derrick Lin
Dr. Lin was born and raised in Texas. When he was in the fourth-grade, he was asked, “What do you want to be when you grow-up?” Dr. Lin responded, “ I want to become a Dentist,” not fully understanding his answer at the time. However, his passion for dentistry grew while he was in Austin receiving his Bachelor of Science at the University of Texas. It was then Dr. Lin realized that becoming a Dentist was the perfect combination between working with his hands and serving others. Dr. Lin went on to study dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.
While in dental school, Dr. Lin spent most of his free-time volunteering as a student dentist on various mission trips to the South-Texas border, at the San Antonio Refugee Health Clinic, at the Dental School’s geriatric clinic, etc. Even while not acting as a dentist, Dr. Lin chooses to stay involved in the community by serving in out-reach organization such as Habitat for Humanity.
Dr. Lin enjoys all aspects of general and esthetic dentistry and strives to provide excellent evidence-based dental care. He is a member of the San Antonio District Dental Society, the Texas Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and Christian Medical and Dental Association.
