Marin Goldston, Dental Hygienist
“I’m from Boulder, Colorado, but have lived in the valley for three years now. Growing up, I wanted to be a pediatrician, but I decided to switch to dental hygiene during my first year of college and have loved it ever since. I have been a registered dental hygienist for nearly 15 years and was an instructor at the Utah College of Dental Hygiene for 4 years. I loved my job so much I went straight from my lunch break to the hospital to deliver our oldest child! I am so happy to be part of the extraordinary and caring team at Zimbi Dental and love getting to know all of our amazing patients! I have been married to my husband for 10 years and we have three awesome kids! In the summer we like to swim at the beach at Pineview and in the winter we like to ski and snowboard. My greatest accomplishment in life is definitely my family.”

“I love the outdoors and riding my horses. I am an avid skier and have lived in Utah my entire life. Having braces after high school sparked my interest in the oral hygiene field. I love being a dental assistant and am working towards being a dental hygienist.”
