Dr. Lauren Hernandez began her dental career as a hygienist. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene from the University of Louisville before receiving her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. Dr. Hernandez also completed an externship at the Midwest Implant Institute in 2021 and was inducted as a fellow in September of 2022. As a daughter of an Army officer, she moved around a lot but calls Louisville home since being here since 2008. Dr. Hernandez credits her father for helping her decide to become a dentist because of her artistic eye. What she loves most about dentistry is getting to know her patients and making them feel as comfortable as possible no matter the procedure.
