Meet Lynn – Office Manager
Lynn was raised in northern NJ and began her career in the dental field in her hometown. She worked at a dental office while going to college and after obtaining her degree in Science, she decided to stay on because she loved the idea of helping patients and putting them at ease. That was over 30 years ago.
Lynn took a hiatus from the dental field to raise her daughter and manage a health club for many years, but missed the interaction with patients. She is very excited to be a part of Green Grove Dental’s positive effect on the community and strives to make it the most comfortable and caring experience a patient can have at a dental office.
Lynn enjoys spending time with her daughter, parents, sister, her family, friends and loves entertaining, gardening and home projects.
