Our Startup Story
Updated: Aug 11
Dr. Jean Link obtained her DDS from the University of Illinois in 1989. She had the unusual designation of being the youngest graduate from the College of Dentistry. She spent the next 8 years as a solo practitioner in a rural, underserved community in Virden Illinois.
Dr. Link moved to Colorado in 2004 and established Link Dental with her husband Dr. Mark Link. She began consulting for Craig Hospital in 2014 quite by chance. One of Jeans patients was recovering from spine surgery at Craig Hospital and became aware of another patient who was suffering with dental pain. He suggested to his caregivers that they call Dr. Jean and that began a relationship that changed her professional trajectory.
Since 2014, Dr. Jean as part of Link Dental has donated over 200K in dental treatment to patients with spinal chord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. In 2019, she founded Linked to Craig, a 501c3 nonprofit to more comprehensively meet the needs of this patient population.
