Lauren graduated from The University of Dundee in 2008, with a degree in Oral Health Sciences (Dental Hygiene and Therapy)

Since graduating Lauren has gained experience in working with a wide variety of patients with different needs, in different practice environments. This has included working with anxious patients as well as those with special needs.

Lauren has a particular interest in preventative dentistry, as well as the maintenance of dental implants and has recently become a member of the Association of Dental Implantologists. This has allowed her to keep up to date with the latest techniques and research available within the profession.
