Meet Dr. Lehnhardt
Dr. Lehnhardt grew up in the Silicon Valley, in Mountain View, California. She was first introduced to dentistry in her grandpa and dad's dental laboratory. Although she did not cast any teeth during those early years, she created many stone handprints, and lots of memories.
Dr. Lehnhardt earned her undergraduate degree in Business Administration from University of California, Riverside. She then received her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2013. While in dental school, Dr. Lehnhardt had the opportunity to travel to Honduras and Jamaica and provide dental care to the local communities. She also volunteered in clinics in Southern California. Following dental school, Dr. Lehnhardt completed a General Practice Residency at the VA Palo Alto, where she received extensive training in dentistry.
Before joining our team, Dr. Lehnhardt was a clinical instructor at Stanford Hospital and a general dentist in private practice in California. She has specific expertise in restorative dentistry, oral surgery, esthetic dentistry and clear braces.
Dr. Lehnhardt strongly believes in continuous learning and community outreach. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Montana Dental Association, Sixth District Dental Society, and served four years on the board of the Mid-Peninsula Dental Association. These organizations serve the dental community and foster a network of learning in the community. She has continued her education through Seattle Study Club, Spear Education, Invisalign, Oral Oncology Symposium, Academy of Osseointegration, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and Academy of General Dentistry. Regularly attending these meetings allows her to stay up to date on the most current technology and practices.
After a lifetime in California, she traded the coastline for the mountains, and hasn't looked back since. She loves being outdoors. Her favorite pastimes are hiking, skiing, camping, trying new foods, and spending time with friends and family. She is eager to make Bozeman home and excited to serve the community.
