Lauren McKenna

Introducing our Associate Dentist Lauren McKenna. Originally from Glasgow, Lauren moved to Aberdeen in 2008 and qualified from Aberdeen Dental School in 2012.

Lauren is our Intravenous Sedation Dentist at Inverurie Dental Practice. Currently working toward her Pg Cert in Dental Sedation, she is delighted to accept anxious and phobic patients for dental treatment carried out under sedation. To find out more about our sedation service please click here:-


Prior to graduation as a dentist, she gained a BSc Honours Degree in Biochemistry and Pharmacology at Dundee University. Previously Lauren had worked as a scientist in the medical diagnostics industry, but ultimately her love of working with people drew her to a career in Dentistry.

Following graduation Lauren has worked in general dental practice in Forres and latterly in the Newmachar area. She takes great pleasure in caring for her patients and making them feel at ease throughout their treatment. Her caring and friendly approach helps patients to feel involved in the decision making aspects of their care and helps them to relax and feel confident whilst undergoing dental treatments.

Lauren enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and feels strongly that everyone should have access to good quality NHS dental care.

Outwith dentistry, Lauren enjoys exploring the Aberdeenshire countryside and coastline. She also has a keen interest in music and regularly supports local bands on the Aberdeen music scene.
