Dr. Lynn scored in the top 3 percent of pediatric dentists who took the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry qualifying exam in 2018, and he now works with lactation consultants and pediatricians to treat, among other things, tongue and lip ties in infants. He also works on the craniofacial team at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, treating children born with cleft lips and palates.

“I love hard rock and metal music.”
