Hygienist Robin Powers graduated in 1976 from the University of Minnesota with a four year degree. She began her career in south Minneapolis just a week after graduation.
She married in 1980 and moved to Chanhassen, MN, where she bought her first home. 1980 is also when her Parkway Dental career began.
In 1996, she moved to Illinois and then Kentucky in support of her husband’s career. She received her Dental Hygienist License in both additional states and subsequently worked for periodontal-specializing offices. It was also throughout this period of moving between states that she became aware of the strength of her Minnesota accent- you betcha she did!!
Robin returned to Minnesota and the Parkway Dental community in the year 2000 and has throughout the following years acquired a loyal, trusting community of patients with whom she has maintained lasting relationships.
Robin is a passionate cross-country skier and has twice completed the American Birkebeiner cross country ski race! She also enjoys portaging, canoeing, and fishing in the boundary waters.
Robin is an animal lover and ever since her time in college, has always had at least one dog and one cat, typically two of each. She has two grown sons and a husband of 40 years.
Robin can most often be found biking around town or sitting on the front porch of her vintage home, of course with a beverage in hand.
