Meet Our Westport Dental Team

Lynette Darken

Registered Dental Hygienist

Meet one of our Dental Hygienists, Lynette! For the last 20 years, she’s been a part of the dental industry. She is known for her gentle touch and friendly smile. She enjoys keeping current with continuing education classes to be sure our patients receive up-do-date dental procedures and periodontal treatments. She loves what she does and it shows in her enthusiastic attitude towards dentistry. Learning about her patients and teaching them how to care for their teeth, gums and overall health is what she likes best about her job.

Lynette is originally from Silver Spring, MD, and went to high school in Hagerstown, MD. From there, she graduated from Dental Hygiene School in Baltimore. Her active family of five includes her husband and three kids in elementary school. When she isn’t transforming smiles at work, her hobbies include art projects with her kids and photography. She also enjoys turning pictures into fun books. You may not realize that Lynette has a wild side. Her first car out of hygiene school was a Jeep Wrangler, and she had many crazy adventures off-roading!
