Dr. Laura graduated from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR where she received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Then, attended the University of Tennessee in Memphis, TN for dental school and graduated with high honors.
From the time she was a small child, she always enjoyed school and learning new things. Dr. Laura always knew she wanted to help people with her knowledge. Healthcare was a big interest. In college, she began working part-time with a pediatric dentist and she soon became a role model and mentor. She inspired me to pursue dentistry as a career. I admired the fact that she was able to give back to her community. During a mission trip to Honduras, Dr. Laura fell in love with dentistry.
One of her goals is to provide compassionate care in order to relieve patients' anxieties about visiting the dentist. Dr. Laura wants to play a positive role in changing people's perspectives and preconceived ideas about going to the dentist. She also enjoys being able to help people relieve their pain and being able to add quality back into their lives. She enjoys working with patients in creating a beautiful smile that will help them get their confidence back.
Since spending several years working with a pediatric dentist, Dr. Laura especially loves working with kids of all ages. She believes taking children to the dentist at a young age and continuing with regular visits will help children grow up to be adults who are not fearful of seeking dental care.
