Wheaton, please welcome our new board certified pediatric dentist – Dr. Lynse Briney!
Dr. Lynse Briney completed her undergraduate degree at Iowa State University and continued on to the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Dentistry. After graduation, Dr. Briney completed a one-year General Practice Residency at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where she had extensive training with special needs and medically compromised patients. While practicing general dentistry for three years she discovered that the days she enjoyed most were those spent treating children. In 2009, she returned to UIC for specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry. While completing her specialty training, Dr. Briney also received her Master of Science in Oral Sciences investigating the relationship between oral health and childhood obesity.
As well as practicing at Bauer Dentistry and Orthodontics, Dr. Briney is on staff at Lurie Children’s Hospital. In October 2012, she became a Diplomate to the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She is also an active member of the Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, American Dental Society and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Briney loves spending time with her husband and two boys, cooking, gardening, and traveling. We are extremely excited to have Dr. Briney join our growing dental family and look forward to you meeting her!
REMEMBER to schedule at 1 year old!!! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and Dr. Briney recommend your child’s first exam be scheduled around their first birthday to ensure your child becomes acquainted with the dental experience and so that she can check the dental growth/development and health of your child. Our office is located right on Roosevelt road, close for both north and south Wheaton as well as the surrounding communities. Call today to schedule your first visit. Convenient Saturday hours available.
