SYRACUSE, NY – Dr. Joan Laura, a Syracuse family dentist, recently gave away a gas grill to a local family as part of her Memorial Day raffle.
Dr. Laura, who operates Eastwood Dental Office, regularly awards gifts to patients who refer new patients throughout the year and then holds a special raffle every spring. This year’s Memorial Day raffle winner was the Roper family, long-time Eastwood Dental Office patients. This year’s drawing was held May 21, just a few days before Memorial Day.
“I take great pride in serving this community through quality dental care,” Dr. Laura said. “Not many dental offices raffle off gifts for their patients, but I enjoy having a practice that does not resemble your typical dental office. Anyone who refers someone to my practice receives a gift card and has their name entered into our raffle.”
Dr. Laura has given away hundreds of dollars in prizes during the annual raffle, including PlayStations, iPads, gas cards and even TVs. She said the annual event is one of her favorite programs of the year.
“I look forward to this drawing every spring because it’s my way of saying thank you to my patients,” she said. “This practice has survived and thrived because of the incredible residents and families in this community.”
Dr. Laura provides family and cosmetic dentistry under one roof. She practices out of her home, which has been in the family for five generations. She offers all-composite fillings, crowns, bridges, teeth-whitening treatments and crafts beautiful dentures for patients missing some of their teeth or all of their teeth. Dr. Laura has convenient hours for busy families and working professionals and provides same-day emergency care.
Dr. Laura also provides porcelain veneers to change the color, shape or size of teeth. Veneers can be used to completely remake a smile, or to cosmetically enhance one or multiple cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. Veneers can also be used as a substitute for orthodontic treatment – straightening teeth to perfection almost instantly. Dr. Laura’s background in design allows her to be especially artful when designing a new smile.
Dr. Laura earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in fashion design from Parsons School of Design – where she was named to the dean’s list – and then graduated cum laude from State University of New York Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. She has completed continuing education courses in cosmetic dentistry and root canals.
Dr. Laura is a member of the American Dental Association and New York State Dental Association. Dr. Laura is heavily involved in community service. She serves as a lay ecclesial minister and annually supports the local hospice facility Francis House.
