If you do good for others some of them will give back tenfold.
Dr. Jai Shin believed that by doing the right thing for others eventually others would reciprocate and he hoped that this way of living would cultivate a community of trust, faith and selfless caring for each other. It was the philosophy that drove him to put others ahead of himself.
At this practice that Dr. Shin founded, staff was like family and patients were like friends – his interactions and relationships with others affected him deeply, beyond just the dental aspect of his profession. In addition to his professional focus in general and cosmetic dentistry, he also maintained a number of professional affiliations throughout his career: New York State Dental Association, New York County Dental Society, American Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry.
Outside of his career, Dr. Shin enjoyed spending precious time with his two young sons and parlaying his skills using his hands for woodworking and golfing. He also enjoyed a good cup of coffee, trying new restaurants and wine tasting. His hope was for the legacy that he built with this dental practice would take care of his other legacy – his children.
