Meet Dr. Freitag

Dr. Lauren Palmer Freitag, DMD

‘Dr. Lauren’ graduated from Milton High School in 2007. She attended Auburn University for her undergraduate studies where she received her Bachelor of Science in Microbiology. From Auburn, she moved up to Louisville, KY where she earned her doctorate from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. While in dental school, she was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, a prestigious dental honor society, graduated in the top 2% of her class, and met her husband, Josh, who is also a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Dentistry.

Dr. Lauren’s mission is to give her patients the highest quality of care in a family-like environment. When asked what three words she would use to describe dentistry, Dr. Lauren would say family, compassion, and artistry. Dr. Lauren practically grew up in the dental office and has fond memories of filing paper charts at her father, Dr. Michael Palmer’s, office when she was a little girl. When she was a senior in high school, she had the opportunity through her school’s apprenticeship program to work in the front office. It was then her love for dentistry blossomed and she would return home from college in the summer to work in the office and even did some chairside assisting. Her dream came true when she got to work alongside her father in 2015 as a dentist at Lanier Dental Partners. The dental office has always felt like home to Dr. Lauren, and she strives to make her patients feel the same.

Dr. Lauren is a member of the American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, and Hinman Dental Society. In order to provide her patients with the highest quality of care, she has attended various continuing education courses focused on extensive implant restorations, including locator overdentures (“Snap in” dentures), Teeth in a Day, and hybrid dentures (“All on Four” or fixed dentures).

Dr. Lauren lives in Cumming, Ga with her husband, Josh, and two children, Quinn and Ezra. When she is not practicing dentistry, she enjoys riding her peloton, spending time with her husband and children, and cheering on her Auburn Tigers! WAR EAGLE!

FUN FACT: Freitag means Friday in German, and no, Dr. Lauren does not know German!
