About Dr. Shin

Dr Elizabeth Andie Shin (1).jpg

Dr. Elizabeth “Andie” Shin is the founder of The Skin Strategists (TSS), a company focused on facial esthetics, encompassing all esthetics and facial dental parameters to achieve the best results for our client’s facial esthetic concerns. Dr. Shin was born in Busan, Korea and her family moved to São Paulo, Brazil when she was 2 years old. She graduated from dental school in Brazil and then moved to Los Angeles, CA.

Dr. Shin attended the University of Southern California Dental School, receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She continued her studies and completed her residency program at USC/Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), graduating top of her class. She was awarded the best didactic and clinical award from both USC and CHLA. It was during her hospital residency that her interest in facial transformation started. In the craniofacial team at CHLA, she was exposed and involved with several specialties, learning a team approach with plastic surgeons, orthodontist, oral surgeons, and geneticists with the goal of treating dental and facial problems. The balance between normal parameters of beauty and facial esthetics, with emphasis on function gave Dr. Shin found a desire to help children with cleft lip and palate and other syndromes to achieve their best possible outcome.

Immediately after graduation she worked as the Division Head of Dentistry at CHLA and as an associate professor at USC Advanced Pediatric Dentistry Program. After several years she started her own practice in West Los Angeles, and after 9/11, she joined the Army and served in as an active duty military officer at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC. She completed her active duty military service and then joined as a staff pediatric dentist at National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. In 2015, Dr. Shin joined a private practice in Bethesda, MD and started her esthetic practice is Chevy Chase, MD.

During her 25 years career as a pediatric dentist, she has been able to observe the facial transformation of many of her patients. Her observation of changes in facial structure and the aging process led her to pursue an academic and clinical path aimed at improving and maintaining natural beauty, and to help correct common signs of aging. Dr Shin’s has completed her facial esthetic training in neurotoxins, fillers, lasers, radiofrequency with board certified schools. She also trained with Korea’s leaders in esthetic physicians.
