Lauren E. Wager, DDS

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!
