Dr. Lydia DeJonge grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Seattle, Washington, where she spent many happy hours biking, ice skating, and playing outside with childhood friends. She was encouraged by family members to pursue a career in healthcare and inspired by the great care she received from her own childhood dentist to go into dentistry. While in dental school at the University of Minnesota, she realized that she loved working with pediatric patients and educating families on good oral home care. In her spare time, Dr. Lydia still likes to bike, hike, and camp. Fun fact: Dr. Lydia is learning Spanish and loves to practice in the dental clinic!
