Dr. Lindsey, a pediatric specialist.

Meet dr. lindsey

Dr. Lindsey Rodriguez is a 2008 graduate of Athens High School. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Alabama in Huntsville with a degree in both Biological Science and Chemistry and then earned her dental degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2016. After completing dental school, Dr. Lindsey practiced dentistry at two non-profit dental clinics for two years before realizing her passion for treating children and deciding to devote her career to serving children to the best of her ability. In 2018, Dr. Lindsey returned to UAB to complete a two year pediatric dental residency. Here she gained extensive training in the growth and development of children, sedation and behavior management techniques, and the dental treatment of medically-compromised children and those with special needs. She was also chosen to serve as Chief Resident during her final year of residency. Most recently, Dr. Lindsey became a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, which is one of the highest honors in pediatric dentistry

Dr. Lindsey’s favorite part of being a pediatric dentist is helping her most fearful and anxious patients conquer their fears and become happy patients who actually enjoy going to the dentist! Dr. Lindsey wants all of her patients to have a positive experience at Limestone Pediatric Dentistry so that they will continue to seek routine dental care and maintain good oral health throughout their lives.

In her spare time, Dr. Lindsey enjoys trying out new restaurants, hiking, and traveling with her husband Nathan who is also an Athens High grad! Dr. Lindsey is excited to be back in Athens and serving the children of the town she considers home. She is also proud to be the first full-time, residency-trained pediatric dentist in Limestone County!

Fun Fact: Dr. Lindsey loves to travel and go on hikes with her husband! One of the items on their bucket list is to hike to the highest point in each state!

our mission and Approach

PREVENTIVE, CONSERVATIVE APPROACH

Here at Limestone Pediatric Dentistry, we approach our care with a preventive, conservative lens to help little ones maintain their beautiful and strong natural smiles. That’s why it’s our mission to create happy dental experiences that encourage kids to seek preventive dental care as they grow and maintain optimal oral health for the rest of their lives. We do this by taking the time to educate our patients and their parents on how to best protect and preserve their teeth, only recommending the most minimally invasive treatment options whenever we can. 

GETTING THE WHOLE FAMILY INVOLVED

We love what we do because family is what we value most. We truly believe we’re better together, so we keep you and your loved ones in mind in every step of the way. From moms and dads to our young patients and their siblings, Dr. Lindsey and the team invite the whole family to be a part of the conversation, ask questions, and engage in fun-filled learning at our dental home in Athens.

CUSTOMIZED CARE

Thoughtful details are our specialty because no two children are exactly alike! We customize our care by truly getting to know each child we treat, learning what makes them light up and feel at ease, and tailoring appointments to their unique healthy history, developmental stage, and individual habits. Each family will also get their own treatment room to provide a safe, private, and comfortable visit from start to finish!
