Dr. Lauren Hubbard was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. As an avid Hawkeye fan from an early age, she was determined to become a Hawkeye herself and graduated with high honors from The University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Science in Integrative Physiology and went on to earn her Doctor of Dental Surgery from the The University of Iowa College of Dentistry graduating with highest distinction.
Following graduation she and her husband moved to Chicago, Illinois where Dr. Hubbard served the Chicago area dental community through private practice, as a clinical instructor at The University of Illinois Chicago College of Dentistry, and through volunteer work with Mission Possible Illinois.
Dr. Hubbard and her husband recently moved to Minnesota and she has fallen in love with the community here. Dr Hubbard is passionate about continuing education and providing the highest level of care possible to her patients. She is dedicated to providing each individual a customized treatment plan that achieves excellent oral health and beautiful aesthetics.
Dr. Hubbard absolutely loves improving her patients smiles. She also devotes part of her time to teaching at The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and is excited to serve the patients in our community here at West Lakes Dentistry. Though she won’t admit it yet, we think she’s slowly becoming a Gopher! When she’s not with patients or students, Dr. Hubbard enjoys spending time with her husband and their furry dog-child Teche. She loves being outside with family and friends and when she is not perfecting patients’ smiles you’ll likely find her out exploring her new home on the trails with her husband and Teche.
