Dr. Lauren Young grew up in Copley, Ohio and graduated from the University of Akron with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and minors in Applied Mathematics and Chemistry. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 2016. Following graduation, Dr. Young completed a two year post-doctoral General Practice Residency at Mercy Medical Center in Canton Ohio, serving as Chief Resident her second year.
Dr. Young is an active member of the Stark County Dental Society, the Ohio Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. She participates in local dental study clubs and continuing education courses to ensure she is providing the highest quality and most up to date care for her patients. Most recently, she has taken courses with the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, in order to provide Botox and dermal fillers to patients for both pain and cosmetic purposes.
In her spare time, Dr. Young enjoys playing with and teaching her pet bird, Snoop. He is a spunky, four year old green cheek conure who knows many tricks and phrases. Dr. Young adores birds and would love to own an aviary some day. Her other hobbies include visiting local coffee shops and farmers markets. Giving back to the community and local entrepreneurs (many of which are close friends) is an important part of her life.
Dr. Young has dedicated her life’s work to ensure her patients are in the best care. She is aware of the fear that may accompany a patient visiting the dentist. Therefore, she works hard to provide a welcoming atmosphere, a listening ear, and attentive dental care to each and every patient.
