On the way to Mt. Rainier Summit
Matthew E Lesh DMD
I look forward to meeting new patients as well as catching up with current
ones. My goal for Yelm Prairie Dental is to be of service to this great community
through compassionate dentistry. I don't think you should dread getting your dental care and I strive to make your experience with us positive.
I grew up in the small Washington community of Adna. I graduated from WSU- Vancouver and went on to complete my dental degree at Oregon Health Science University in Portland, Oregon.
My wife Kris and I are enjoying the area
and all it has to offer. Beyond my passion
for dentistry, my wife and I love
experiencing the natural beauty of
the Pacific Northwest and enjoy
kayaking, hiking, and biking.
Yelm, Washington is central to the
locations we're excited to explore.
I look forward to meeting you and your
family and serving all of your dental needs.

Lead Dental Assistant
My name is Lindy Turpin, I have been working in the dental field since 2009. I enjoy building new relationships with patients and helping them feel comfortable in the dental chair while taking care of their dental needs. I feel very passionate about dentistry and am always eager to learn new skills.
Outside of my profession, I spend most of my time with my husband and my three children enjoying the outdoors, camping, hiking, fishing and exploring new destinations. I have a soft spot for baby animals and I love anything made with chocolate.
I am very excited to be a part of the Yelm Prairie Dental family, as well as excited to be a part of your community here in Yelm.

Kristin! Need I say more!
I have been in dentistry since 2013 and love it! I graduated from Renton Technical College. My favourite thing about dentistry is helping people regain their smile.
I have an active personal life including softball and wrangling two active boys! Landon and Braeden
are the high points of my life! We go hiking as a family and of course all the activities the boys have!
I hope to see you at the office soon!
