Dr. Oakes-Lottridge's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Oakes-Lottridge "Graduated cum laude from Florida State University in 1993 with a BS degree in Biology and received her DMD degree from University of Florida College of Dentistry in 1997. After graduating from University of Florida, Dr. Oakes-Lotttrige accepted the position of Dental Director for a community clinic in Mayo, Florida where she worked while her husband completed medical school. After his medical training, they moved to Southwest Florida. Since 2004, Dr. Oakes-Lottridge has been proud to be in the Lehigh Acres community providing the highest quality dental care in a sincere, caring, and personal environment. And, as of 2015, that environment happily extends to patients in Fort Myers at our Caloosa Dental office on McGregor. In her efforts to provide the best for her patients she takes dozens of continuing education courses. Her courses help her stay up-to-date on the latest and best technology available in dentistry. She has successfully completed a 2 year course in Light Force Orthodontics, allowing her to provide traditional braces at the Lehigh Office as well as Invisalign in both locations. Dr. Oakes-Lottridge enjoys being able to offer everything - from the basic filling to recreating beautiful smiles with orthodontic, Invisalign, veneers, and many other services. After a complete and thorough evaluation, she works with the patient to determine the most appropriate treatment for them. Outside the office, Dr. Oakes-Lottridge has served as the Vice-President for the Lee County Dental Society Executive Council, as well as delegate to the Florida Dental Association and a member of the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Oakes-Lottridge regularly donates her services to Project Dental Care to help those who need dental care in SW Florida.
