Trace M. Lund, DDS
I was 12 years old when I decided I wanted to be a dentist. I was blessed to have a mother who was a dental hygienist that quit her own practice of dentistry to be my mom but never lost her love of the profession. I had great friends and examples that encouraged my education and dreams. My college years allowed me to pursue my love and amazement of the human body, the relationships of loving people and the environment that surrounds us.
I chose to specialize in pediatric dentistry because I get to be involved with children all day long and help them to grow and be healthy.
We invite and encourage parents to be involved in this process and try to teach families a better way of life. Sure, times can be very challenging, but I have resolved that a tender heart, kindness and compassion help to make friends and better patients, as opposed to being a mean or scary authoritarian that forces children to behave because of fear. We get to work with the greatest clientele in the world, and even when things get tough, they are willing to give you a fist bump or a hug when we finish our work.
I love the outdoors and participate in many outdoor sporting and recreational activities. I love to run and challenge my mind and body with endurance races. I have completed over 100 marathons or ultra-marathons, and this is my guilty pleasure after a hard day of work. I have a long affiliation with Boy Scouting and love to teach youth, for in them is where our future lies.

My greatest job in life is being a dad. I have four children and the most wonderful wife, who supports my craziness. I am a very blessed man, and I thank you for considering our practice as you look for a dental professional to take care of your precious children.
