Meet Dr. Morgan

Dr. Morgan

Laura Morgan, DDS

25 years as an orthodontist in Ellis County and I still LOVE creating smiles!

As an orthodontist, I value the time I have to get to know each patient and their family. It is so special to see each person grow and change throughout their treatment. Watching the transformation in their smile and their confidence is extremely rewarding. I now LOVE treating children of those I previously treated.

It is rewarding to give people the opportunity to be themselves without being judged by how their teeth look. As a child, I was embarrassed by my smile and am thankful my parents provided me with Phase I and Phase II orthodontic treatment. These treatments gave me the confidence to smile and be who I am without being judged by my smile.

After attending dental school and learning more about teeth and jaws, I chose to undergo orthognathic surgery, which reduced my gummy smile and gave me the chin I always wanted. This procedure also increased my confidence and knowledge, reinforcing my desire to pursue my dreams of creating smiles for others.

Education and Professional Memberships

One of the most exciting aspects of orthodontics to me is the constant development of new approaches and technologies. Throughout the years, I attend numerous continuing education courses in order to stay current on the latest developments. These courses and my willingness to purchase the latest technology ensures I am providing patients with the best possible treatment. I am an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Southwestern Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association and Texas Dental Association.

Beyond the Practice

I was born and raised in Texas playing college basketball in Canyon, TX before attending dental school and orthodontic residency. I have lived with my family in Waxahachie, TX since 1998. My husband Mark Morgan and I have three amazing grown children: Luke, Kate and Amber. Luke is completing his Masters in Biomedical Science in Fort Worth. Kate plays volleyball for Samford University and is a Biology major. Amber is attending Notre Dame University and studying Chemical Engineering. Maverick is our Miniature Australian Shepherd, who walks me daily!

When I’m not creating smiles, I enjoy supporting all my children’s activities, working out with friends, and Shutterfly scrapbooking. Family time and vacations together are all-time favorite experiences!

In the Community

I enjoy giving back and helping others, as well as supporting my church. Morgan Orthodontics is involved in many community-strengthening organizations and projects. Giving back to the community which has provided me the opportunity to do what I love for 25 years means so much to me!
