SYRACUSE, NY – Dr. Joan Laura, a top Syracuse family dentist, is hosting a Memorial Day raffle for existing patients who refer new patients to her practice this month.
During the event, Eastwood Dental Office patients who refer their friends, family or colleagues to Dr. Laura will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a new gas grill. Dr. Laura will draw the name of the lucky winner on May 21.
“I always look for opportunities to thank my dedicated patients who have put their dental care and trust in my hands,” Dr. Laura said. “Every year we try to think of new ways to repay this incredible community.”
Dr. Laura is heavily involved in the community through her volunteerism and outreach efforts with local organizations. She coordinates a Memorial Day giveaway every year for patients who refer their friends and family and has awarded hundreds of dollars in prizes. In the past, her practice has raffled off grills, PlayStations, TVs, gas cards and even iPads.
“As a dentist, a referral or recommendation is the highest praise you can receive,” Dr. Laura said. “My biggest goal is to help patients overcome dental problems, relieve them of any dental pains and give them their smile back.”
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.
