After finishing his school work Dr. Robertson moved to the arctic in Barrow, Alaska where he was a lieutenant in the National Health Service Corps, working in the Eskimo villages of the North Slope. In 1983, Lonn moved to Anchorage where he established a large, urban, family dentistry practice. He continued to fulfill his desire to take care of the underserved by creating itinerant clinics in two remote “bush” villages on the Aleutian chain and Bristol Bay. Five or six times each year, Dr. Robertson and his staff traveled by small plane to these clinics where he treated native Alaskans.
In 2003, Lonn had the opportunity to move back to his loved home of Oregon. He moved his family back to Creswell and his practice to Springfield, where he works with “the best partner in the world”, Dr. Tom Huhn.
Dr. Robertson is a 30-year member of the American Dental Association. He has served as an officer in nearly every local and state position for the dental society. He currently is an “At Large” officer in the Lane County Dental.
Lonn is an avid runner and can be spotted frequently running (usually leading a pack) throughout Lane County. He especially enjoys his time on Pre’s trail in Eugene and the miles he logs with the Creswell Running Club on the Row River Trail. His running exploits include finishing the Comrades Marathon in South Africa as well as winning his age group last year in the Austin marathon. He recently ran the Boston Marathon finishing toward the top of the pack with a lighting quick time of 3:07.
