Meet Dr. Laura Douna

headshot-laura-web-032315I am thrilled to be able to practice dentistry in the most beautiful and friendly beach in North Carolina. I am originally from Wake Forest, NC. My husband, Erin, and I opened Ocean Isle Family Dentistry in May 2013 and have 3 beautiful children, Abigail, Finley and Webb. I attended The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery. Prior to my dental education I received a Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders at East Carolina University. Following dental school, I returned to ECU to complete a General Practice Residency at The Brody School of Medicine. My residency advanced and refined my skill set to be proficient at placing dental implants, oral surgery, emergency diagnosis and treatment, treatment of gum disease, root canals, dentures, partials, preventative dentistry and much more. These skills will help minimize referrals and allow for more convenient dental care.

Staying up to date with the latest advancements and technology is important. My staff and I take time out regularly to attend continuing education courses and maintain CPR, OSHA and HIPAA certifications. I am also a proud to be a member of the North Carolina Dental Society, American Dental Association and the Brunswick County Chamber of Commerce.

Dentistry is my pride and passion so I am careful to listen and respond to each patient’s individual needs and provide quality care that I can be proud of. I will take the time to educate and discuss ways to maintain and improve your smile and oral health. Well informed patients are better prepared to make decisions about their dental care and will be more satisfied with their treatment.
