Meet Dr. Lyn
Oral Surgeon in Nottingham
Dr. Lyn was born on the beautiful island of Jamaica W.I. He received his undergraduate degree in Biology at Benedict College, SC where he was mentored and conducted research in genetic oncology under prominent professors at University Of South Carolina. He graduated with a 4.0 GPA, and was accepted on a full academic scholarship to the University Of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, where he completed his Doctorate in Dental Medicine.
In recognition of his natural abilities in the surgical arts, he was award the prodigious Topazian Award, an honor given to only a select few historically whom have displayed an uncanny sense of community service. Following dental school his interest in oral and maxillofacial surgery led him to the competitive Howard University Hospital Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Washington DC where he completed his training at one of DC’s most active Level 1 trauma centers.
Whilst in residency, Dr. Lyn’s surgical cases traversed the gamut from facial trauma, dentoalveolar, TMJ, oncology, esthetic and orthognathic surgery; the latter facilitated under the tutelage of world-renowned craniofacial surgeon Dr. Jeffery Posnick, whom has established a practice with a global referral base. Culminating his experiences with understanding the mechanisms and reconstructive techniques employed to treat the most severe craniofacial and trauma patients, Dr. Lyn authored several scientific studies during his time as Chief at Howard University Hospital, in the hopes that his knowledge could be shared with the next generation of surgeons.
Dr. Lyn obtained his board certification in Oral Maxillofacial Surgery at first eligibility, and forged ahead with his commitment to lifelong learning; most recently he has received training in advanced temporomandibular joint surgery available to only a select handful of oral surgeons worldwide.
In the previous year his surgery cases for complicated wisdom tooth removal was close to 1,000 under general anesthesia/intravenous sedation, with over 450 dental implants placed in conjunction with prominent prosthodontist, periodontists and general dentists in complex full mouth rehabilitation cases often requiring extensive bone grafting. After hours, he still maintains privileges at his former training institution where he trains residents at Howard University hospital and oversees surgical repair of complex maxillofacial trauma, denotalveolar surgery and reconstructive jaw surgery.
He has contributed countless hours to local and international charity events such as CT Mission of Mercy and dental clinics in his home land of Jamaica. Dr. Lyn looks forward to continue his support of the local dental community and its patients with the same care and understanding he has cultivated throughout the years.

Patient Review By Michael K
Dr. Reid did my initial consult and wisdom tooth extraction. Every step explained to my satisfaction. The actual extraction was easier than my dentist’s last root canal! All staff interaction was fantastic.

Patient Review By Holly D
The office was closing early the day I was seen.My dentist got a hold of the office at about 1:20pm and told me if I came in now I could be seen. They were closing at 2! They stayed an extra hour just to get me in. The surgeon that removed my tooth was amazing. She was very sweet, gentle and made sure I was okay through the whole process (anxiety). After the numbing injection I didn’t feel anything but pressure. I’d recommend them to anyone.

Patient Review By Rose K
I was a bundle of nerves coming into the office. I didn't know any doctor here. When Dr. Lyn first came into the room, he shook my hand and asked how I was. He is a very personable and friendly doctor! He extracted my tooth effortlessly and within a minute! I was so happy it was done. I totally recommend him to anyone needing his services. Thank You Dr. Lyn!!!

Patient Review By Gwen T
Three months ago, my daughter had all four wisdom teeth removed at one appointment under IV sedation, the visit was great...all of the staff was excellent at comforting both my daughter and myself. Her recovery was uneventful and the areas all healed nicely. Her general dentist said at her recent check up it was as if nothing was ever done, she has healed perfectly!

Patient Review By Paul S
After many years of denture movement and loose teeth pain, I found the solution with Dr. Lyn and his staff. Every step was explained in detail and what to expect after the surgery and the new dental prosthetic. I recommend Dr. Lyn and his staff to anyone in need of oral surgery.

Patient Review By Shakira K
Dr Lyn was awesome! This was my first time meeting him and I have to say I was really nervous due to just meeting him a week ago and getting my surgery the following week. His professionalism and knowledge is what will keep me coming back if need be. But the dental assistant that was assigned to me, Kate I believe is her name was very rude and seemed to have a bit of an attitude. She showed NO empathy whatsoever and honestly could careless if I was comfortable with procedure before hand. She was very short with me, didn’t seem to want to answer my questions, snippy, she could see that I was nervous and actually crying and not once asked me was there something she could do to make things better. I didn’t want the procedure but I knew I needed it and you would think she would had made me feel a little bit more comfortable. I even tried to start a conversation with her to help calm my nerves and she completely ignored me. I couldn’t tell if she had a personal issue with me or maybe she was having a bad day. Nonetheless, she is a poor representation of your practice and patients come first. She needs to learn how to empathize with patients. It wasn’t until Dr Lyn entered the room and could tell I was nervous and started talking to me which allowed me to calm down. Kate’s disposition and demamor had even changed in a postive way when he came so I’m not sure what was going on but if I was to come back she absolutely cannot not be assigned to my procedure. I was going to ask for another DA but didn’t want to be there no longer than I had to so I didn’t bother to say nothing. But Taylor, your front desk receptionist was very very nice and attentive to all my needs and concerns. She could’ve been my DA instead.
