I graduated with honors from Baker College of Port Huron in 2016 and have been with the Laurich Dentistry Team since.

Having a healthy smile and understanding the importance of oral care are pertinent staples that I enjoy teaching our patients.

I also enjoy educating my patients not only about their oral health, but also the connection between oral health and overall health. I have developed many relationships with my patients that I will always cherish. I pride myself on being a gentle but thorough clinician. It makes me happy when my patients leave with a smile on their face. I also keep current on my continuing education, since dentistry is always advancing. Since joining Laurich Dentistry in September 2020 after my previous employer of 21 years retired, I enjoy being a part of the positive, patient focused, and fun office that we have.

I have been a hygienist for the past 7 years. As a dental hygienist, I strive to work alongside my patients to help achieve not only a happy, healthy smile, but sustainable overall health. I make every effort to make sure my patients feel comfortable the moment they enter the office to the moment they leave. I love my role as a dental hygienist and enjoy providing care every day to my patients. Outside of the office, you can typically find me spending time with my 3 year old son, Gannon. He’s the light of my life. I also recently relocated from Ohio to Michigan. I’m excited to begin a new journey with Laurich Dentistry and to explore all that Michigan has to offer.

I grew up in the Metro Detroit area and graduated from the University of Detroit School of Dentistry, finishing top of my class and receiving numerous clinical awards. Following that, I moved to Ann Arbor, and have lived here for over 34 years. During that time, I raised my two children, a son who is a master’s student in creative writing at Purdue University and a daughter who is a critical care pediatric nurse at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, and a coach at Orangetheory Fitness.

Practicing dental hygiene and being a part of the Laurich Dental family/team has fulfilled my passion for helping and caring for others. I strive to make each patient feel comfortable, understood, and important, while giving the best treatment in a state-of-the-art dental setting. Working with an expert dental team allows me to treat patients with the utmost care while also developing trusting and meaningful relationships with my patients.

In my free time, I enjoy spending every minute I can with family and friends, taking long runs/walks with my rescue dog Beauregard, observing nature, birding, gardening, baking/cooking, enjoying the arts, reading, and reading tarot. I also spend time volunteering at the Humane Society of Huron Valley, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, as well as various performing arts groups around Ann Arbor, and projects for master gardeners.

Peggy

Meet Peggy, she is one of the assistants at the Ann Arbor location. Born and raised in the Brighton Michigan area. While I have lived in Michigan most of my life I did get to experience moving around while in my twenties. I lived in the Chicago area for a year, followed by Orlando, Florida, the Los Angeles area, then after two years in Oscoda, MI we built a house near Chelsea. I began working as a dental assistant at age nineteen. One of things I like best about assisting is that I can help patients feel comfortable and help ease any anxiety they may have. I am a mother of two, and grandmother of two. I enjoy reading my kindle, riding my bike, kayaking, and spending time with family and friends.

In the 30 years I’ve been working with Dr. Laurich, I’ve gotten to know so many wonderful people and their families. The fact that we are now caring for multiple generations of the same families, and that people bring their children to us for their earliest dental experiences, are testaments to the painless, gentle care we provide. Because we create individual treatment plans, based on each person’s needs, we can help them in the way that’s best for them. My days are spent working chairside during dental procedures, assisting the doctor and supporting our patient. I always put myself in the patient’s shoes and think about how I’d want to be treated. I enjoy my work and the friendships I’ve made with our patients. During my time away from the practice, I love to golf and spend time with my son and daughter.

For anyone counting, that makes five boys. We have 2 dogs which we believe are living their best life possible. When I am off, I love being with my family and traveling any and all beaches.
