Our dental team is committed to creating a friendly, caring and successful practice. We will take the time necessary to provide comfortable care and quality service at excellent standards. Our goal is to consistently meet and exceed our patients’ expectations for their long-term dental health.


Dental Hygienist

The joy of dental hygiene is delivering quality oral health education and care to patients and their families. I graduated college in 1993 and have a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from Oregon Institute of Technology. With over 20 years experience in private practice, the public health sector and through volunteer opportunities, I have learned that success comes one patient at a time; it’s about listening, respect, commitment and a gentle touch.

I have been practicing with Dr. Eric Yaremko since March 2014. I remain excited about the art and science of oral health. Most importantly, I look forward to listening and learning from patients.

My family and I now live in Bellingham and part-time on Lummi Island. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, gardening and quilting, as well as boating, hiking, and keeping my children on a straight and solid trajectory. I have two grown daughters and a son in high school.

Lynda Wiederspohn


Office Manager

I am the friendly voice over the phone and the first smiling face you will see when you enter our door. I have worked in dentistry for 18 years, with the last 4.5 years at Eric Yaremko DMD, PS. My goal is to provide excellent customer service with compassion and enthusiasm.

I am very passionate about being a patient advocate. Building personal relationships with patients is also very important to me. There’s nothing like the satisfying look on a patient’s face when they’ve navigated the confusing world of insurance, financing, and the unknown of treatment, to come out the other end with an even bigger smile. I have seen firsthand how dentistry can change a patient’s smile and transform their lives. I have a husband, son, and the best little gray and white cat on this planet!

Lead Assistant

I have worked as a Dental Assistant with Dr. Eric Yaremko since graduating from Bellingham Technical College in 2014. I received my AAS degree as a Certified Dental Assistant. I love coming to work to the smiling faces of everyone on our team. It is great spending my days working with such kind and caring staff. I adore my profession and feel the best part of my job is giving our patients the most relaxing and comfortable experience along with exceptional dental care. I am passionate about helping patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two beautiful daughters.  When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, the outdoors, and cuddling my daughters.

Dental Assistant

After attending a Dental Assisting College in Seattle, WA,  I began my Assisting career in Kirkland, WA.   I have worked for several dental offices which included an Oral Surgery practice and six years at the University of Washington Hospital Dental Clinic.  This is where I met Eric Yaremko, whom I later married.  After raising our two daughters, I went back to work as an Assistant in our office.

My job description varies:  I assist chair side, work as the lab technician and assist the office in any way I can. I work with a great staff and constantly learn new things every day.

In my spare time I enjoy skiing, horseback riding, sailing and reading.


Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Ferndale, Washington.  After graduating high school I enrolled at Bellingham Technical College where I received my A.A.S. as a Certified Dental Assistant in 2015.    I began working for Dr. Yaremko in May of 2017 and I can honestly say I have never been happier.

There are numerous reasons I love working for Dr. Yaremko.  Our office always provides amazing patient care, and I enjoy being part of a team that strives to make sure our patients have a positive dental experience.   Patients come first and its rewarding that I am able to help patients feel comfortable while at our office.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with my grandma. I have two dogs, Cleo and Knugget, a goat named Cowboy, a snake named Reptar, and most importantly a llama named Llouie.


Dental Assistant

I graduated from the Dental Assisting Program at Bellingham Technical College in 1989.  I was immediately hired as an assistant for Dr. Fickel.  I worked with him until he retired in 1992 and Dr. Yaremko took over his practice.  After working as an assistant for Dr. Yaremko for a couple of years, I decided to become a full time mom.  Two decades later I am thrilled to be back working with Dr. Yaremko and his concientious and skilled staff.

My passion is people.  I enjoy spending time in conversation with my family and friends.  I am also a community mentor for Be the One at Lynden High School.
