    Dr. Lauren Hernandez began her dental career as a hygienist. She obtained a Bachelor’s 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. 

    Dr. Hernandez is married to her high school sweetheart and together they have four children. In her spare time she enjoys reading both fiction and nonfiction, exercising, and cooking for her friends and family. She loves Orange Theory Fitness and the Dallas Cowboys, but admits to being a Cowboys fan by marriage. Having lived in Guatemala as a child, she also loves being able to use her Spanish skills with patients!
