Dr. Melissa Zyk began her dental career by working in several different offices in different communities. The opportunity to open her own practice presented itself in 2003 as she and her husband drove by the present location — a former seafood restaurant built to look like a lighthouse. He commented to Dr. Zyk, “You should open your practice there and call it Lighthouse Dental.” Dr. Zyk loved the Washington community and felt it was being underserved, so she opened her practice to serve the families of Washington, MO, and surrounding areas. Today the only takeout at the location is a healthy, happy smile.

Went for my regular six-month checkup, staff are always helpful, my hygienist is the bomb! Dr. Zyk is a very good dentist, takes time to listen to her patient, very very thorough. Going to visit the dentist can be hard, but everyone at Lighthouse Dental tries to make the experience pleasant. Thank you to the staff!

My hygienist used a new instrument to clean my teeth. I had stains from drinking tea. That worked like a charm!

As an individual with an irrational fear of all things related to dental work, just walking through the door caused my pulse to race and my face to sweat. I know I’m being a giant baby, but it is what it is. The entire staff at Lighthouse Dental made each visit as pain-free as possible and put a lot of my fear and anxiety to rest. They each were knowledgeable, skilled and all-around awesome at their job. I truly appreciate the care I have received and will be back. Every six months. Promise.
