Dr. Joan Laura has more to offer her patients than most dentists. Her background in art and design makes her uniquely qualified to bring true artistry to the field of dentistry. She is a talented artist when it comes to transforming and designing new smiles for her patients. Dr. Laura finds it tremendously rewarding to improve the appearance of people who have been embarrassed to smile by using her skills to restore their teeth along with their confidence. Her patients are grateful to leave with smiles they can be proud of!
Her advanced education began at Parsons School of Design in New York City, where she was on the Dean’s List and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fashion Design. After working and living in New York City, she continued her education at State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, where she graduated cum laude with Thesis Honors.
Dr. Laura has taken advanced course work in cosmetic dentistry, root canals, and surgery. She continues to stay abreast of current dental and cosmetic techniques and technology.
Following in her father’s footsteps as a dentist, Dr. Laura has been practicing for more than 25 years. Eastwood Dental Office is located in a house on James Street that has been in her family for five generations! It provides a comfortable atmosphere that puts people at ease when they come for their dental visits.
Dr. Laura is humbled when she is able to give a second chance to someone who has been in the habit of hiding their smile. She uses her skills and her artist’s eye to improve their appearance and their life through cosmetic dentistry. She loves when her patients see their results and hug her with gratitude.
As a caring person, Dr. Laura is very giving and involved in her community. As a way of honoring the men and women who have served our country, she offers free services to military veterans on Veterans Day. She is family-friendly and welcomes patients of all ages.
