Dr. Lauren Weber, wanted to be an orthodontist from an early age. A mid-westerner by birth, Dr. Lauren’s heart belongs here on the west coast— something she realized shortly after graduating college at the University of Michigan with honors. Leaving the cold winters of Ann Arbor for UCLA where she earned her dental degree with highest honors was just the change she wanted. While at UCLA, Dr. Lauren not only maintained her standing at the top of her class, but also volunteered with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. As an avid athlete, Dr. Lauren took advantage of the Southern California weather, participating in a variety of races and Crossfit.
Dr. Lauren completed her orthodontic specialty training right here at OHSU. And, like many Oregon-trained orthodontists, Dr. David Cruikshank, was one of her most valued attending faculty members, making this partnership even more special for both Dr. Lauren and Dr. Darcy. As an energetic and caring practitioner, Dr. Lauren genuinely loves patient interactions. Practicing orthodontics here in the Portland area for the past several years has been an enriching experience for Dr. Lauren. She has filled her closet with all the appropriate gear, becoming an active Pacific-north-westerner who hits the trails year-round!
Outside of the office, Dr. Lauren enjoys exploring the outdoors and traveling with her husband Joe, sweating it out in spin class, and trying out all the latest new restaurants. Dr. Lauren and Joe have 3 dogs– you won’t have to look far to see her favorite dog Cody who almost always joins her at the office.
