Journey to dentistry
Dr. Lynch’s journey to dentistry was inspired by her desire to be a person who helps others. After she graduated from college, her first job was as a social worker for children and families. It was at this job that she took one of the children in her caseload to the dentist with a toothache. Dr. Lynch saw that dentist fix the toothache in ONE visit. This was a turning point in her life.
Dr. Janne Lynch states:
“I was blown away by the immediate help this dentist gave a young girl by taking away her excruciating toothache pain, in about a half an hour. I realized that he had concretely helped her. It inspired me, and was a turning point in my life. My primary motivation for choosing social work as a career was helping people. As a young person just out of college, I was struggling with that choice because the help I was giving my clients seemed flimsy to me. It was not very tangible and when it was tangible, it was not lasting. I wasn’t satisfied.
Of course I had been to a dentist before, but I was mostly scared of the dentist because of early experiences as a child at the dentist. Before seeing the dentist help my client with the toothache, I had never thought about the dentist office as anything other than being a place I didn’t really like to visit. But when I saw the dentist help that girl, I decided I wanted to learn more about what dentists do.
As I learned about dentistry being a marriage of science and artistic skill, with the added bonus of physically being able to help people, I was hooked. From that point on, all of my plans were about becoming a dentist.”
While Dr. Lynch was in high school, she won both city-wide and school art competitions for her sculpture. She graduated from Oral Roberts University with honors with a minor in chemistry. With her artistic talent, strong science background, and desire to help people, she was sought after by many top dental schools.
Dr. Lynch ultimately selected the prestigious New York University College of Dentistry for her dental education. She chose New York University because of its intense hands-on training, combined with rigorous academics, and of course, because of the Larry Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry at NYU. Dr. Lynch graduated in the top of her class in 2005.
Dr. Janne Lynch practiced dentistry in both Manhattan and in Texas before settling in Scottsdale.
