Meet the Doctor

Sang Y. Shin, DMD

Dr. Sang Y. Shin grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, and received his Bachelor of Science degree in biology at the University of Utah. He then completed his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree with honor at Nova Southeastern University, College of Dental Medicine, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

After graduation, he completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at Nova Southeastern University in North Miami Beach, Florida. Then, he attended Temple University’s advanced dental education program for specialty training in endodontics in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dr. Shin served as a faculty member teaching Temple dental student in laboratories and clinics.

After completion of the specialty program, Dr. Shin worked as an endodontist in a private practice limited to endodontics for 10 years in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was the co-chairman for seven years at Atlantic Coast Dental Research Clinic located at Palm Beach State College in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he taught and gave lectures to general dentists on various dental topics.

Dr. Shin is very passionate and adamant about his endodontic specialty. On his own, he continued to strive for the highest level of his profession by passing a series of examinations to obtain the status of Board-Certified endodontist and diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics.

Dr. Shin became interested in dentistry as a child through his dental trauma as a result of the loss of two teeth. He had special interests toward dental trauma and devoted himself to saving others’ traumatized teeth. That was the motivation to give dental trauma lectures to general dentists for optimal handling of traumatized teeth. Dr. Shin has been invited to lecture on the topic of endodontics to various groups. His area of expertise includes treatment of dental trauma, regenerative endodontics, facial pain therapy and the use of CBCT in endodontics.

In addition, he has published a one-step revascularization article (a new treatment protocol that helps pus-draining, dead teeth to continue to grow and strengthen their roots) in the renowned “International Endodontic Journal,” and his case study made a cover page of the journal. His case work was published in the third edition of Dutch endodontic textbook “Endodontologie” and in the July 2011 edition of “Dental Clinics of North America Journal.”

In addition to excellence in his work, he has volunteered in the Palm Beach County dental charity program, “Save a Molar,” to treat underprivileged children with pro bono root canal treatments for five years.

Dr. Shin is very empathetic towards his patients and tries to provide the highest quality of care with the highest standards.
