Lauryn plans to further her education in the dental field by attending Dental Hygiene school in the future.

She strives to create a comfortable environment for each patient in order for them to have the best experience in the dental chair possible while educating them about their oral health. As a new resident of Connecticut, Sarah enjoys exploring all of the state parks, beaches, and restaurants the state has to offer.
