Dr. Jeff Lynch
Expert Cosmetic, Implant and Sedation Dentist
I’m Dr. Lynch and I’d like to share a bit about the journey that brought me here to McKinney Dentist!
Growing up, my younger brother and I were born and raised in the cold. Our family lived in Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, and then finally settled in Chicago. I’d like to think our Scandinavian roots equipped us to handle all those brutal winters.
After completing high school in Barrington, a NW suburb of Chicago, I decided I was ready for warmer weather and chose to pursue my undergraduate degree in Microbiology at the University of Oklahoma. I played rugby for the club team up until my junior season was cut short by a broken wrist. As I filled out my dental school applications with my right hand in a cast, I couldn’t envision a scenario where I would be successful in the long term if I was always hurt. So right then I decided it was time to put all my focus on my future in dentistry.
Further south I went! My DDS degree was earned at Baylor Dental School in Dallas. This is where Dr. Berlin and I first met. Those four years produced a few gray hairs, but more importantly a lifelong friendship. I have countless memories from school that I hold dear, however the first patient I ever performed a root canal on ended up being my wife of 28 years, Diane…so that one will always be my favorite.
“Being able to end a patient’s lifetime of dental problems, literally overnight, is an amazing feeling. My team and I really bond with these people as we see them change.”
– Dr. Lynch
After graduation, we got married and moved out to Salem, OR where I began my professional career. I practiced there for 6 years, but home was calling so I packed up my family and moved back to Chicago where I took over a small practice on the North Shore.
In 2000, I decided I had one last move in me and made my return to Texas. I joined another friend from dental school in a busy and growing practice for 5 years until I got the chance to partner with my buddy Dr. Berlin here in McKinney! I jumped at that chance and haven’t looked back since! Our doctors get along great! It’s amazing to work with people who have similar professional goals and practice philosophies, and all love college football!
Most of my focus has been in the area of Dental Implants and tissue augmentation and regeneration. These procedures allow me to help patients regain lost teeth, gum tissue, and bone that they’ve lost due to dental disease or trauma.
I’ve replaced thousands of lost teeth with these implants allowing people to chew and smile with confidence. But nothing compares to the life changing results I help people achieve with the Teeth Tomorrow protocol. Being able to end a patient’s lifetime of dental problems, literally overnight, is an amazing feeling. My team and I really bond with these people as we see them change. Being able to give patients new confidence and self-esteem is something few dentists ever get the chance to experience. And we have the opportunity every week!
I’m now a trainer for the new Teeth Tomorrow dentists and also lecture nationally on Oral Surgery for the General Dentist. Combining these techniques with all of the other procedures I’ve mastered allows me to help my patients with almost any dental problem they may incur.
Modern technology continues to improve what we can do for our patients and at McKinneydentist.com we work hard to stay on the cutting edge of that front!
In regard to my life outside of the office, Diane and I have 3 grown kids, a wonderful son-in-law, and the sweetest granddaughter ever. Fitness is a passion of mine, which led me to open CrossFit Alpha 1 Athlete, a CrossFit gym in Plano. I start every morning there with the wonderful community before I come to McKinney!
I also love to hike, ski, and eat! When you come in for a visit feel free to share your favorite recipes! Coconut is my favorite!
That’s a little glimpse into my background and how I came to be 1 of 4 lucky guys at MckinneyDentist.com. I look forward to meeting you soon!
