Meet Our Dentists

Dr. Mitch Thompson & Dr. Lauren Herba

Mitch is a 2011 graduate from Lake City High School. He attended Hillsdale College for two years and played football before transferring to Central Michigan University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in biology. Lauren completed her undergraduate work at Benedictine University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Health Science.

Aside from an opportunity to practice where his family and friends live, Mitch said only one other thing drew him home. “The greatest 4th in the North just couldn’t keep me away,” he said with a chuckle. Mitch and Lauren intend to keep much of the office routine the same except for the hours. They plan to experiment with Friday and evening appointments to make it more convenient for working patients to schedule appointments.
