Dental Hygienist

Lauri started her career in dentistry with Dr. Salatino in the early 1980's. Initially she was a chair-side assistant. After completing dental hygiene school in 1985, she came back to practice with Dr. Salatino as his registered dental hygienist for about 18 years. Over the course of the next decades she has worked for several excellent dental offices where I learned other aspects of dentistry. She always longed to return to her roots, and when an opening arose and Dr. Baez  gave her the opportunity, she gladly accepted. This has given Lauri the opportunity to reconnect with many of her former patients and continue in the practice where her career began. Together with her husband, they have 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren. They love to travel and explore the world.
