Welcome to Cockeysville Dental

The office of Dr. Jocelyn Y. Shin

Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety..

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and team safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and team. For example, o>ur office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you arrive for your appointment.

  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines as they are difficult to disinfect in between patients.  
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.  
  • We ask that all patients wear masks when entering the office. If you do not have one, we will provide you with one.

 We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our newly adopted protocols to promote a healthy environment for your visit.  To make an appointment, please call our office at (410) 628-0118 or contact us via email ([email protected]).  Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust in us and look forward to welcoming you back!

Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Jocelyn Shin

    I am a hometown girl from Cockeysville, MD. I received my dental degree at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 2010 and shortly thereafter moved down to Atlanta where my husband was working. After spending eight years as an associate dentist at a private practice, I moved back to Cockeysville to be closer to family and friends with my husband and three girls. I am thrilled to work with Dr. Ottenritter and our team to provide excellent clinical dentistry with unmatched patient care. What I love most about working here is the family-like atmosphere we have with our team and patients. When I’m home, I love to cook and hang out with my daughters. I love rooting for our Baltimore Orioles and Ravens!


    Just love Dr. Shin. She is great and very caring. Her staff go above and beyond.


    My husband Alex went for an exam and cleaning. We had the most great experience in a dentist facility. We went there after seeing the reviews. They are very professional, friendly and dedicated personnel. They take care of you as their own.


    Very professional and kind staff, clean environment and Dr.Shin is very knowledgeable and up to date with modern technology. She is very kind and gentle, and explains everything she will do to you and why. I would highly recommend this Dental Office.


    The staff is amazing - so friendly and helpful. Dr Shin is great!!! She makes me feel at peace when she hums/sings along to the music. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. I’d rather not go to the dentist (I’m a whiteknuckles patient) but since you can’t really escape going to the dentist; I’m glad I have a place like Cockeysville Dental to go to! No complaints here


    Dr. Shin is wonderful, caring and gentle. She always has the patient's welfare and comfort. Dr. Ottenritter picked an excellent replacement for his practice. The office staff is friendly and have been there for many years.


    Everyone here is very pleasant and professional. Everyone makes your dentist experience enjoyable by caring and giving you their full attention like you are there only patient. I highly recommend this dentist office.


    Dr. Shin is an amazing dentist! She is great with kids, even my daughter with Autism who never usually allows anybody to look into her mouth for more than a minute was able to sit through a cleaning session with Dr. Shin! Dr. Shin made my daughters feel at ease and comfortable, they loved the experience and wanted to go back more times! She takes her time to answer all questions even silly kids questions! Dr. Shin and her team were willing to accommodate and work with our schedules as well. I highly recommend this dentistry practice for all members of the family.


    This is my 3rd visit with Dr. Shin. She is very professional and puts you at ease I was immediately comfortable with her care. Will definitely be back for my bi- yearly check ups. I have had minor procedures there besides my check ups. Very competent and thorough. Staff very friendly. Hygienist is very knowledgeable and friendly. Does a great job. I’m extremely happy with Cockeysville Dental
