Dr. Lawrence's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lawrence "Dr. Lawrence is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics and the American Board of Orofacial Pain. He is one of only two orthodontists in the country to hold this dual board certification. Dr. Lawrence opened his private practice in Mentor in 1992 and moved to the present Mentor Avenue location in 1995. Since 1999, Dr. Lawrence has been actively involved in orthodontic education as a Professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Lawrence is also the director of the Orofacial Pain Clinic in the Orthodontic Department, and has been awarded the Professor of the Year. In 2010, Dr. Lawrence was named Consultant to the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. He is a member of the Clinic’s Craniofacial Team which evaluates and treats children and adolescents born with facial and jaw irregularities, most notably cleft lip and palate. In 2011, Dr. Lawrence introduced his invention, the OralEnlight™. This device will help orthodontists provide better care to their patients, improving the orthodontic experience for patients, parents, and providers. Formerly, Dr. Lawrence was the Orthodontist for Craniofacial Anomaly Clinic of the Lake County Health District, which served Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula counties until the clinic was discontinued in favor of the large hospital craniofacial teams. Dr. Lawrence received his B.A. and D.D.S. degrees from Case Western Reserve University. He completed his orthodontics residency at Loyola University of Chicago and completed a residency in Clinical Management of Temporomandibular Disorders and Related Orofacial Pain from the world-renowned Orofacial Pain Center of the University of Kentucky. Outside of the office, Dr. Lawrence enjoys spending time with his wife and two children."

Patient Comments (4)

Hardly see him (jumpy and hyper when I do). Assistants do most of the work.

We love the staff and great care we receive. While it is a busy practice; it is well run and there is very little waiting time.

Way too busy for personalized attention and a chance to voice concerns. He bounces around from chair to chair without allowing a real chance to talk. The only time you have to talk, there are things in your mouth, and then he's gone. I wish I had an orthodontist that had more time to talk to me...more

Now I know why they don't post office hours - they really don't care about providing quality care to their patients. .
