Laura – Treatment Coordinator

Laura joined Gierie Orthodontics in 2006. Originally from Raleigh, NC she relocated to Wilmington in 1999. She is a UNC-Wilmington graduate. Her own experience with braces and jaw surgery as a teenager led her to become an orthodontic assistant and then later a treatment coordinator.  Her vast experience as a chairside orthodontic assistant is a huge asset in explaining the orthodontic treatment process.  Because she wore braces as a child and Invisalign as an adult she understands the process from both sides of the chair. She enjoys making patients feel comfortable and seeing their new smiles being created. Outside the office she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, friends and family.
