Meet the Doctor
Dr. Lauren Huntington – Dentist and Owner
I have been around dentistry my whole life. At a young age, I began assisting my dad, a now-retired endodontist, as well as several other dentists which continued throughout my college years. After graduating from Lafayette College, I moved to New York City to pursue post-graduate degrees. I earned a degree in dental hygiene and worked as a hygienist before and during my doctoral training at NYU College of Dentistry, where I graduated in 2016. Following graduation, I completed my residency at Hackensack University Medical Center and spent the next few years as a member of their medical staff as an attending dentist. I have been practicing dentistry in NY and NJ for the past 6 years.
In July 2022, I acquired the newly named “Smile Studio.” Since then, we have expanded our team and added new technology to our practice. I am an active member of the ADA, AGD, NJDA, and the Jersey Coast Dental Forum, a subsidiary of the Seattle Study Club. Our Smile Studio team is constantly striving to stay current with advances in dental techniques and working hard to ensure your time with us is comfortable, customized, and efficient.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Brian, and our two daughters, Hailey and Becca. We love to travel and adventure together!
Meet the Team
Jessica Andreola – Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in South Jersey, in Hamilton. I have 15+ years of dental experience. I became part of Smile Studio in July of 2022. My passion for dentistry came at a young age growing up with my mom being a dental assistant and teaching me dental health is very important. There is nothing more rewarding than helping others achieve a confident healthy smile they love! I understand the needs of both children and adults and am willing to take the extra step to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed during your dental visit. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my niece and nephews, baking, working out, and love to try new restaurants with my husband.
