She loves educating her patients and offering suggestions for how you can improve your oral health.
Outside of the office, Lynda enjoys running, cooking, traveling, and riding her motorcycle. After a hard day’s work, she likes hanging out with her two year old son Anthony. She also loves hiking with her husband and two year old English bulldog. She practiced dental hygiene for two and a half years before moving to Colorado.

Marion, Registered Dental Hygienist
Marion has 37 years of experience as a dental hygienist, and even after all of this time, she still says that her favorite part of the job is having the opportunity to educate our patients to help them improve their oral health. She takes extra special care to be gentle and thorough in everything that she does around the office. As a three-time breast cancer survivor, she is thankful for modern medicine and loves that she gets to help people safeguard their own health every day.
Marion was born and raised in Grand Junction and is proud to be a Colorado native. Outside of the office, she likes to ride her horses and spend time in the barn of her family farm in Greeley. She has ridden, shown, and trained horses for many years and has also volunteered with the Boulder Valley Pony Club when her son was actively riding and competing. She’s now retired from competing herself, so these days, she enjoys riding trails and taking pack trips with her horses around different parts of Colorado in addition to camping, fishing, and cooking.
