Dr. Erin Lauer has a passion for people! From an early age, Erin knew she wanted to pursue a career in the medical field, but she wanted to choose an area that her love for people could really shine. Becoming a Doctor of Dental Surgery was the perfect path because it allows her to build relationships with her patients year after year through preventative care and treatment. Dr. Lauer also has a very special love and patience for children. She has seen that taking care of their smile in the early years, leads to a stronger self-confidence in their teen years.
