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.

MEET OUR TEAM!
Debbie will brighten your smile!
Debbie originally is a native of Oregon born and raised. She relocated into Washignoni over 6 years ago following her husband with their 4 boys in tow. She became interested in dentistry over 2 decades ago as a CNA working closely with a retired dentist. She spent most of the first decade as a dental assistant and in the front office greeting patients daily. As her passion for dentistry and immediate care for her patients grew, she went back to school and earned 2 associates degrees before graduating in 2009 with her Bachelor's in Dental Health from Pacific University of Oregon.
Since graduation, she has worked educating Dental Assistants as an instructor for a sealant program as well as providing clinical hygiene services in both private and corporate dentistry. She has a vast amount of knowledge in all avenues of dentistry!
In her spare time, she enjoys spending family time with her husband of 25+ years. In which they have 4 boys and 4 fur puppies. She enjoys riding 4 wheelers, hiking, camping, travelling, spending time on the Oregon Coast, paddle boarding and home canning.

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!

I graduated from South Puget Sound Community College in 2014 with my Certified Dental Assistant license. I joined Yelm Prairie Dental in February of 2020 and I’m absolutely loving it! My favorite part about dentistry is making patients feeling comfortable in the office and them leaving with a beautiful smile.
I’m a native to Washington and Yelm. My husband, Kenny, and I enjoy our home in Rainier with our 3 four legged fluffy babies. We have 3 cats named Ozzie, Moto, and Callie. You can say that I’m definitely a cat lover!
In my free time I enjoy gardening, camping, hiking and doing crafts in my she shed. My husband and I also love to explore the beauty of the National Parks. It’s our goal to go to all of them in the United States!
I can’t wait to meet everyone as patients and help with your dental needs!
