Lynn Leyde, DDS

My passion for dentistry comes from a love for people and the creative way I can help them. Changing lives through dental health offers the gift of comfort and beauty to all ages.

Relationships begin with good communication and a healthy mouth. Confidence in our smile is an important part of self-esteem and how well we relate with others.

Achieving and maintaining dental health is also the foundation of personal general health. The physical ability to eat healthy food, speak well, and feel comfortable is essential in establishing a healthy lifestyle. Restoring our mouth to healthy function allows us to meet our individual dietary and social goals. I can help people on this journey.

Our smile is a gift we give to others and ourselves for a lifetime. Dentistry is an integral part of our lives, and worthy of my dedication personally and professionally. It is exciting to be part of dynamic positive change.

I thoroughly enjoy my life in the Pacific Northwest, especially boating, fishing, hiking, and the many cultural activities available. Music, art, sports, museums and wonderful seafood are delightful favorites in the Puget Sound area. I volunteer and support local organizations and charities that directly impact lives in our neighborhoods and beyond our shores. Many happy hours are spent in the San Juan Islands with family and friends.
