Our dental hygienist Lauren joined the Five Pines family back in August but is now with us full-time and we’ve added her bio to the Meet the Team page! More about Lauren:
Lauren graduated with her dental hygiene degree from Miami Dade College in 2010. She is an active member of the American Dental Hygiene Association, the Oregon Dental Hygienists’ Association and her diverse clinical background includes public health, homeless shelters, and nursing homes. She believes every dental appointment should be a positive experience and it shows through her friendly demeanor and contagious laugh.
“I grew up on the south east coast of Florida prior to living in the District of Columbia for 7 years. I moved to Portland in the summer of 2017 to be closer to friends and explore all of the nature the Pacific Northwest has to offer! I like birdwatching, camping, reading, and watching X-Files re-runs with my cat, Donut. I enjoy empowering patients to take control of their health through education of the connection between oral and whole-body wellness.”
