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.

volunteering as a student dentist on various mission trips
to the South-Texas borders, at the San Antonio Refugee

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.
