Lemon Family Dental

Dr. Lemon and his teams in Aberdeen and Olympia are dedicated and skilled.  They are committed to making sure that patients feel relaxed and secure at every visit. The goal is to provide outstanding care to you and your family.  Lemon Family Dental offers a complete range of dental services, using the most advanced technology, in an environment that is gentle and calm.

Dr. Lemon: Hi-Tech Dentist with Hometown Spirit

There are three elements at the heart of Dr. Lemon’s dental practice; his compassionate approach to patient relationships, his comprehensive range of dental services, and the modern technology he uses to ensure that every procedure he performs is as stress-free and comfortable as possible for his patients.

A native Washingtonian, Dr. Lemon obtained his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Washington in 1990. After working as a systems analyst for Andersen Consulting and Nike, Inc., he pursued a career in dentistry and graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University in 1999.

Dr. Lemon started his private practice in Aberdeen in July of 1999 and strives to provide the best possible dental health care for his patients. With the help of his dedicated team, his practice has grown to include another office in Olympia.

Dr. Lemon’s main focus centers around his family: His wife, Patty of 23 years, and their three children, Fiona, Phoebe, and Kai. Avid fitness enthusiasts, their free time is filled with bike rides, fitness activities, and exploring cultural foods. Recent lifetime highlights include traveling to China and cycling around Mt. Rainier in one day.

Elissa Maynard, DDS

Dr. Elissa Maynard joined the team at Lemon Family Dental in 2018. Dr. Maynard received her dental training at the University of Washington, receiving her DDS with a solid background in conservative and evidenced based dentistry. Dedicated to staying up to date with the latest evidence based dental care techniques, Dr. Maynard is a member of the Spear South Sound Study Club, a dental study club comprised of local South Sound Dental professionals. Through continuing education, she is able to provide the best care options for each patient’s specific needs. Each year she takes courses through the University of Washington and local, state, and national dental organizations, to learn about new technology, procedures, and materials.

Dr. Maynard is a member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association as well as the Thurston-Mason County Dental Association. She has also served multiple terms as the President of the Lewis County Dental Association. She was inducted in 2017 into the Pierre Fauchard Academy, an honorary dental service organization recognizing leaders in the profession.

The art and science of dentistry were what originally drew her to the profession. Through the years she has found that she enjoys being able to get to know her patients and feels grateful to have been able to connect with so many wonderful people. She loves building relationships with her patients. Living a happy, healthy life and enjoying life to its fullest is a goal that Dr. Maynard has for herself, her team and her patients.  She believes that a healthy smile is an important part of this larger goal.

Prior to joining the Lemon Dental team, Dr. Maynard worked as a dentist in Community Health.  A proud native Washingtonian, Dr. Maynard was a college softball pitcher at Saint Martin’s University, where she graduated as the Valedictorian. While in college she fell in love with the Olympia community and the abundance of outdoor recreation the South Sound has for us to enjoy. Her education at Saint Martin’s reinforced the high value she has for health, continuing education, and giving back to community.

While not in the office, Dr. Maynard loves spending time outdoors with her husband Tyson and her daughter, Ava. She enjoys yoga, mountain biking, surfing and snow sports.

Dr. Lemon: Lemon Family Dental Advanced Technology and Modern Techniques

One of the cornerstones of Dr. Lemon's practice is that he utilizes the latest technology to make the patient experience in his office as pleasant as possible. From the cloud-based software used by his staff to communicate and educate patients, to the hi-tech camera he uses to perform thorough exams, you can rest assured knowing that this practice is committed to providing advanced dental technology in a hometown environment.

Impression Free Crowns - If you've ever had a traditional crown, then you know the process of getting fitted for a crown can be very uncomfortable. Dr. Lemon has eliminated that discomfort. He uses  CAD/CAM technology to create impression free crowns without the use of any gooey putty. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.

Comprehensive Exams using an Intra Oral Camera - Using a small camera, no larger than the mirror we are all accustomed to seeing in the dentist's office, Dr. Lemon can examine every aspect of your mouth and teeth with incredible detail. There are many advantages to using this technology:

  • Oral problems can be uncovered much earlier than with traditional methods.
  • Exams are much less invasive and more cost effective.
  • Patients can see the exam in real time on a monitor giving them the opportunity to become a partner with Dr. Lemon in ensuring they are fully informed about their dental health.

Digital X-Rays - Digital X-rays are far superior and much safer for patients. They provide clearer images, are much more comfortable and less invasive than traditional X-rays. Additionally, they save time and expose patients to 80% less radiation than typical X-rays.

Cutting Edge Lab Partner  - At Lemon Family Dental all lab cases are sent to ZIEMEK, a local, family-owned DAMAS certified dental lab. Only a small group of elite dental laboratories in the United States can achieve DAMAS certification. By using ZIEMEK labs, the outcome is a superior product and a beautiful smile.

Cloud Based Patient Software -  The commitment to modern technology doesn't end at the office. Lemon Family Dental uses a cloud based software program to provide patients access to view educational videos, future appointments, and billing statements from any mobile device.

Lemon Family Dental is committed to providing patients with bright smiles and gentle care in Olympia and Aberdeen.

Most major insurance plans are accepted. Convenient payment options are available through Care Credit.
