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.

Dan, RDA – Operations Manager

danDentistry has been an integral part of my life for many years. I bring technical skills to facilitate delivery and maintain optimum performance of equipment with the goal of providing a safe and modern work environment.

I am enthralled with new technical advances in dentistry and how it has improved the quality of dental care for patients. Expanded options for dental treatment allow the latest scientific developments to become a reality and it is my pleasure to be part of a team dedicated to excellence.

I am an avid reader and pursue interests in Northwest history, exploration, and wooden boat building. I have a lifelong passion for scuba diving and have journeyed to many exciting places to see exotic creatures. I play the guitar and sing with my twin brother, perform live in the Northwest and Canada, and recently recorded a new CD with him. My family and friends bring great joy in my life.

I began my career in the dental field at 17 in the U.S. Navy as a dental assistant. Eventually one of my doctors along the way saw my potential to work at the front desk, about 17 years ago, and ever since then I have been helping patients meet their oral health goals.

My husband, Eric, and I have 5 children and 9 grandchildren and several fur babies. We love to travel in our motorhome but my passion is to make special gifts for my grandchildren.

After I served in the U.S. Army I began Dental Assisting school. I spent 4 years in Pediatric Dentistry, which I really enjoyed working with children. The last 2 years I worked in Community Health. I enjoyed giving back to the community by working with patients that really needed the care. I spend some of my free time volunteering with the Seattle free clinics.

I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful children, my 13 yr old son and my 4 yr old daughter. We go hiking and play at the beach. With our lovely Washington rainy days we also like to play board games together.
