Shine Pediatric Dentistry


Lynse Briney, DDS, MS
Lexi Nash, DMD

Opening Shine Pediatric Dentistry in 2019 in Downers Grove was a dream come true for Dr. Lynse Briney. As a resident of the community, she has the opportunity to treat and improve the lives of children every day from her hometown and beyond. “I love working with kids and consider it a privilege to help change children’s minds about going to the dentist,” she said.

Dr. Briney grew up in central Illinois and received her undergraduate degree from Iowa State University. Early in her career, she knew working with children was a priority. After receiving her D.D.S. degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, she returned to complete her Pediatric Dental Residency while concurrently completing a Masters of Science program in Oral Biology.

Before calling Downers Grove home, Dr. Briney served many communities throughout Chicago, including being an Oral Health Director of a nonprofit organization. A member of several organizations at the local, state, and national levels, including a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, she has committed to a lifetime of learning to provide her pediatric dental patients with the best dental care.

Recently, Dr. Lexi Nash joined the Shine Pediatric Dentistry team. As Chief Resident at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, she gained robust experience caring for children. “Together as a team, we can continue our mission to encourage every pediatric patient to be their ‘brightest self’ with a healthy and beautiful smile,” Dr. Briney said.

Dr. Briney is as committed to the community as she is to her patients. She is a member of the Downers Grove Junior Women’s Club and supports the efforts of local community schools and non-profits. When not working, she can be found traveling or on the sports field with her husband and two boys.
