Lauralee has been indispensable to Dr. Handel since she joined the practice back in 2005! After acting as his dental assistant for some time, she found herself in the role of clinical manager. She is a huge asset to the practice in this capacity, as her outstanding work ethic and boundless energy help the office run like a well-oiled machine. When she is not keeping the office organized, Lauralee enjoys spending time with her husband and their 6, 4 and 1 1/2-year-old children.
Kristin is relatively new to Pennsylvania, as she moved from Virginia Beach in 2015. She is very talented at dealing with different insurance agency and plans and actually enjoys the challenges they present. In her free time she likes venturing outdoors, playing with her daughter and newest son, Jackson (born in May of 2018), and working out.
Patient Care Coordinator
This recent addition to the Wayne Dental Care team has become indispensable in a very short amount of time. How do we know that Lauren is dedicated to the wellbeing of our patients? When Lauren isn’t providing top-notch care at Wayne Dental, you might find her coaching our local high school cheerleading team. Luckily, our patients can benefit from her persistent spirit without having to be a pyramid base.
Ann brings over 40 years of dental experience to Wayne Dental. She is a licensed Expanded Function Dental Assistant and has taken many courses at the Las Vegas Institute (LVI) for cosmetic and posterior dentistry. Ann is married with two grown children and recently became a “Marmee.” When she is not treating patients, Ann loves entertaining friends and family and gardening.
Expanded Functions Dental Assistant
A new addition to our practice, Lauren excels at making sure our patients feel comfortable and relaxed. “You are in good hands with us,” she said. “Treatment is always much worse in your imagination than it is once you’re in our office.” She attended EFDA school at Harcum College, and graduated with a degree in Applied Science. After Harcum, she enrolled at West Chester University to complete her Bachelor’s in Health Science and Marketing. “I have been an EFDA for five years and I love my career because it is creative and artsy as well as clinical.” When she is not putting patients at ease, Lauren enjoys spending time at the beach and hanging out with friends and family.
A recent transplant from Oregon, Dorene has been a dental hygienist for 27 years. She and her husband enjoy transforming simple dwellings into dream homes for others. When Dorene isn’t providing our patients with the best dental care available, you will likely find her enjoying sporting events or indulging in a wine tasting. Wherever you encounter Dorene, she will be the greatest asset your teeth ever had.
Melanie graduated from the dental hygiene program at Montgomery County Community College, and has been a dental hygienist since 2013. She loves her work and helping patients to learn the best practices in oral hygiene. She is also passionate about cosmetic dentistry, as her first-hand experience has taught her how life-changing a confident smile can be. Melanie got married back in 2016 and had her daughter in June of 2017! In her free time she enjoys running.
Born in Ft. Benning, Georgia, Laura has been a dental hygienist for 8 years. When she’s not providing our patients with the care we’re known for, you might find Laura walking, reading, or spending time with her children and friends. Her perfect day (away from the office, that is) would be spent reading a book on the beach and under the sun. Her sunny disposition endears her to our patients and team members, alike.
