I enjoy helping children have the best dental experience possible as well as providing oral health education for parents and patients. I look forward to meeting your family and providing a wonderful dental experience!!
Laurie - Registered Dental Hygienist
I am mostly the school visiting Dental Hygienist, but you might see me in the office when Hannah is away. I came to Prescott 10 years ago to be closer to my husband's family, after living and practicing dental hygiene in New Orleans, Louisiana. I have been a Hygienist for over 25 years. My husband and I have 3 sons: 21, 18 and 12. We are very involved in their schools, sports, theater and Scouting activities. Otherwise, I love to cook, read, and make it to the Y as often as I can. (not often enough!) We have a dog: Pepper, 2 cats: Felix and Raz, and 16 chickens. I joined My Kids Dentist in September, 2011 because I was excited to work in the school setting. One of my favorite things about working in this office is that I always see someone I or my kid's know! I have renewed my heart for this profession with the challenges and change of a pedodontic practice. My pledge to you is to treat your children as if they were my own. And I thank you for that privilege.
