Lauren is a Spokane native. She graduated from Northwest Christian and attended Whitworth for her pre requiring classes for dental hygiene. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Eastern Washington University in 2012.
Lauren met her wonderful husband, Ben, in high school. They got married in 2010 and now have two wonderful boys, Weston and Charlie. They love to travel and see new places as well as return to familiar haunts. If they aren’t at Hayden Lake, some of their favorite pastimes are a quick day hike around Bowl and Pitcher or going for a drive to explore new areas.
Lauren is a Christian and involved with a couple of nonprofits locally. She enjoys learning, and while she doesn’t have much time for leisure reading these days, she does enjoy listening to podcasts or audiobooks.
What’s your favorite place to smile in Spokane?
Ben and I enjoy having a great meal with good friends! Some of our favorite spots in the Spokane area are:
If you were a dental instrument what would you be and why?
If I were a dental instrument I would be a universal Barnhart 5/6 curette because it is adaptable to most situations and is very dependable.
I chose to work in dentistry because I was drawn to the relational aspect of it. As opposed to many areas of healthcare where you may never see your patient again after the treatment is completed in dentistry you get to build a relationship with your patients.
