Meet Lauren E. Wager, DDS

Family & Cosmetic Dentist
Dr. Lauren E. Wager grew up in Buffalo, NY and at an early age, developed a passion for helping others. With a mother who is a nurse and a father who is an engineer, she found her perfect match in dentistry. After graduating from the University at Buffalo (UB) with her undergraduate in Biomedical Sciences and Psychology, Dr. Wager then continued on to the UB School of Dental Medicine.

After graduation, Dr. Wager moved to Jacksonville, FL, where she practiced general dentistry. She met Max, her best friend, and partner in crime. Dr. Wager and Max relocated to Atlanta to build a future together that was closer to family. She joined Town Dentistry because our values align perfectly - specifically, the belief in prioritizing a strong, nurturing relationship with patients to deliver the most positive experience.

Dr. Wager loves her job, but when she is not working, she can be found playing outside. Her current favorite outdoor activities are exploring local hiking trails, playing wiffle ball in the yard, and cycling around town at sunset – usually followed by a seasonal craft beer.

Be sure to let Dr. Wager know your local faves and hot spots!

Meet Hunter Cross, DMD

Family & Cosmetic Dentist
Dr. Hunter Cross is originally from Tifton, GA where he grew up with his parents and younger sister, where he yearned to be a dentist at a young age. From medical mission trips and involvement in his local community, Dr. Cross aspired to achieve his goal of becoming a dental professional by discovering his passion for serving others. After graduating from Georgia College and State University with his undergraduate degree in Biology, Dr. Cross continued his education at the Dental College of Georgia to pursue his degree as Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry.

Upon graduation, Dr. Cross moved to Atlanta, GA to provide dental care in the surrounding areas. As family and friends play a significant role in his life, Atlanta appeared to be the most central point to accompany a healthy and stable environment to now call home.
