Lauren Lewis

Meet Dr. Lauren Lewis

Education

I graduated in 2007 from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, University of Maryland, after which I joined the staff of Kernan Hospital Dental Clinic in Baltimore to treat children and adults with special needs. In 2008, I began my residency in pediatric dentistry at the School of Dental Medicine, University of Pittsburgh. I received my Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry in 2010 and board certification from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2011. I am a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Maryland Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and the Special Care Dentistry Association.

Continuing Education

I believe very strongly in continuing my education by attending highly accredited courses and by learning from my patients’ experiences. I believe that the prevention of cavities is the foundation of pediatric dentistry and work diligently with each patient to find the perfect balance of oral hygiene and diet to maintain cavity-free oral health.

Home​ and Away from Work

I grew up in Pittsburgh, but have been a Marylander since 1999 when I became a Terrapin at the University of Maryland, College Park and met my husband. When not working, I enjoy practicing yoga and traveling with my husband and daughters.

  • We rave about our orthodontist, Dr. Johnson. Three members of our family are currently his patients (mom and 2 kids) and we could not be happier. His personal attention to each patient (including calling on evenings and weekends after installing a new device just to make sure everything is ok) shows his genuine concern for his patients. Everyone there, from the office staff, to Cara (the billing wiz), to the techs — everyone is delightful to deal with. Not to mention that Dr. Johnson’s work is amazing. Highly recommend!

  • Dr. Weber is an extraordinary dentist! She is excellent at communication, putting the patient at ease and thorough. I had a huge fear of dentists from bad childhood experiences and her manner and professionalism has set me at ease. Now my whole family sees her!

  • Thank you for the tender services and above-and-beyond kindness that you show Ryan at every visit. Your practice’s willingness to embrace children living with disabilities and tend to their needs while allaying their fears is exceptional. We can’t thank you enough for all you do for Ryan and our family.

  • Dr. Doshi’s bedside manner is incredible. She had my 5 year old smiling and laughing while he got two crowns and was in the chair. How many dentists sing to their patients to keep them calm? She is wonderful!!

  • Both, my husband and I loved brining our kids to Drs Ensor, Johnson and Lewis’ office. Everyone was very patient with our kids and explained every step to them, making them feel at ease. They let us stay with our children the entire time, and justified the procedures. In addition, they have a big play room and kids leave with a goodie bag feeling like they left a birthday party. We are very thankful.

  • We can’t say enough good things about this practice. Dr. Ensor is a consummate professional– warm and caring with the kids, and clear and reassuring with the parents. Dr. Johnson is a hit with all the kids (and parents!), makes them feel comfortable, and explains things clearly. The staff are equally helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this practice. Have been going there for 10 years. After a tour of the facility we were escorted to the kids area where the kids had a blast playing with the toys. It was great that they allowed brother and sister to interact and support each other through the cleaning. As my son has a lot of anxiety and difficult behavior they were super patient and amazingly good with him!

  • My son actually didn’t want to leave! Since my son has special needs it has been really hard to find a dentist that understands his special needs and how to take that into account when providing services. Dr. Lewis, was great with him! Not only did you have a wonderful and productive dental visit he didn’t want to leave! My kids have been seeing Dr. Ensor since they were 2yrs old. They are 15,16, 17 now. Dr. Ensor is wonderful, knows my children, is quiet and calm, and goes above and beyond. Yesterday my middle daughter met with Dr. Jessica Weber for a crown. Again, FANTASTIC!!!!! Front desk staff is efficient and warm, hygienists are top-notch. The office itself is modern, spacious and bright. We travel from Frederick to Bethesda to see these wonderful Drs.

  • We have brought our two daughters to Drs. Ensor, Johnson, and Lewis from the very beginning. (They have always seen Dr. Lewis, who is outstanding.) Our girls, now 5 and 7, absolutely adore Dr. Lewis and the rest of the staff. I can’t say enough good things about this practice; the facility is gorgeous, the friendly staff genuinely loves children, and the reminder emails and texts sent from the front office are extremely helpful. In fact, my husband and I like the practice so much, we recently decided to become patients ourselves! (We used to go to a different practice just for adults, but now we, too, go to EJL) It’s very convenient for our entire family to go to one practice! In short, we could not be happier. Best dentists we’ve ever been to!

  • My son has been a patient of Dr. Ensor’s since his very first dental appointment and he is now 12. She is an excellent dentist with a very gentle and calm demeanor. I recommend her highly! The dental practice is very attentive to children’s comfort, so if a child needs sunglasses to block the overhead light, or a little extra time to relax they adjust their approach to be sure children receive appropriate care and have a positive experience. I love Dr. Ensor! We also see the orthodontist, Dr. Johnson. He is so gentle, funny and nice that children of all ages really respond well to him. It is great to be able to make appointments to see both the orthodontist and the dentist on the same days and receive coordinated care. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and Dr. Ensor.
