About Dr. Hynes

Dr. Hynes did not take a traditional path to dentistry. After graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Animal Science and minors in Nutrition and Global Health, she worked as a research and development scientist in biopharmaceuticals. She spent most of her time in the lab, focusing on vaccine development. It was there she began to realize that she craved a position in healthcare with a more direct, patient-based impact. She started taking classes after work on week nights and applied to dental school.

Dr. Hynes completed her DMD training at Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry. There, she served as Vice President of the local American Student Dental Association and as a Contributing Editor for the organization at a national level. She was Treasurer and volunteer with the school’s mission trip to Haiti, providing emergent dental care to remote villages.

Dr. Hynes has completed additional training to be certified for Invisalign, implant placement, and oral conscious sedation. It is important to her to continue learning new techniques and technologies to improve patient comfort and facilitate healthy, beautiful smiles.

Dr. Hynes is still very much an animal person, sharing her home with two cats and a dog. She enjoys traveling with her husband, baking, reading, and trying new foods/restaurants.
