Lauren Huffaker, DDS
My goal is to provide excellent dental care in a friendly, inviting atmosphere, treat my patients like family, and see their happy smiles afterwards! I feel that it is important to carefully listen to my patients and understand their concerns in order to develop treatment options and prevention plans tailored to each patient's specific wants and needs.
I was born in Midwest City, Oklahoma and attended Oklahoma State University where I participated on the equestrian team and earned a degree in Biology. I then completed my dental degree at the OU College of Dentistry. Following graduation, I worked for dental offices in Stillwater, Oklahoma and Moore, Oklahoma and completed continuing education courses in implant dentistry, Invisalign, interceptive orthodontics, and root canal therapy. I am a firm believer in continuing education and feel that it is an obligation to my patients to provide modern, up-to-date treatment options and use the latest techniques, materials, and technology available.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, my Goldendoodle, Molly, and my two horses, William and Watson. I also love traveling, jogging, and competing in horse shows.
I am a member of the Oklahoma Dental Association, American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
I look forward to meeting you!
