Dr. Timothy Lynch
Everyday Star

Dr. Timothy Lynch  is a member of the American Dental Association, Indiana Dental society, and Isaac Knapp District Dental Society.  He is also chairman of the Dental Advisory Board at Matthew 25 Health Clinic, which serves the less fortunate in the Fort Wayne community. He has served Matthew 25 for the past 27 years.

Matthew 25 Clinic was inspired by the Gospel to provide free primary healthcare services to uninsured, low-income residents of Allen County.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. . .I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’”

Matthew 25:35-37, 40 (NIV)

The image depicting Dr. Lynch’s dedication has integrated the symbols of Matthew 25’s logo of a dove and the symbol for dentistry. The Greek letter Δ (delta), for dentistry, and the Greek letter Ο (omicron), for odont (tooth) form the periphery of the design. The design uses as its central figure a serpent, the Greek god of medicine entwined around a rod. Dr. Lynch has given his heart to Matthew 25 as painted inside the dove .
