Lynne W. Hsia, DDS

Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Lynne Hsia (pronounced "Shaw") is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist who brings extensive experience working exclusively on children and she absolutely loves it!

"Dr. Lynne", as we like to call her, is Dr. Chung's wife.  They met in college at U.C. Irvine while earning their degrees in Biological Sciences.  She then went on to earn her dental degree in San Francisco at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry (UOP).  She next went to New York for 2 years to complete a highly rewarding Pediatric Dental Residency at St. Barnabas Hospital, the level one major hospital serving Bronx, NY.  It was the hospital staff in New York that gave her the nicknames, "Sunshine" and "Happy Happy Doc" because of her natural constant upbeat personality.  She's an animal lover, enjoys gardening, and ALWAYS has a big smile on her face!

We are pleased to have her extensive Pediatric experience on board and to offer her services as an option for your children.  In addition to serving our community of Napa, she also has her own office in Sonoma as well!
