Christine Gin, Orthodontist
A Passion for Smiles
Dr. Gin graduated second in her class with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of the Philippines in 1993. After a year in private practice as a general dentist, she pursued further studies at the University of Minnesota. While there, she taught orthodontic courses to undergraduate students before earning a Certificate in Orthodontics as well as a master’s in dentistry.
Dr. Gin continued her training for two more years and received a Temporomandibular/Orofacial Pain Certificate. In between all of her schooling, she found the time to teach at the University of the Philippines and lecture on the topics of TMD and orofacial pain.
In 2001, Dr. Gin headed to Texas where she met her husband Barry and had two daughters. She worked as an orthodontist in private practice for 12 years. In order to be closer to extended family, Dr. Gin and her family moved to Illinois. Soon after, she joined the Innovative Orthodontic Centers family. She loves living in the Chicagoland area and working side by side with Dr. Ibrahim. She’s passionate about orthodontics and has an incredible rapport with her patients and their families.
When she’s not perfecting smiles, Dr. Gin enjoys spending time with her family and doing volunteering work at her church, her daughters’ school and in the community. She speaks Mandarin and is fluent in both Fookien and Filipino.
Dr. Gin is a member of the Illinois Society of Orthodontists, the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists, the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Chicago Dental Society and the Illinois State Dental Society.
