Dr. Lauren

Practicing with compassion, understanding and communication is paramount to establishing a beautiful patient doctor relationship while providing quality care. These qualities are what Dr. Companioni builds her practice on every single day. “As the only specialty in which the doctor, parent and patient can work together to make a difference through education and prevention, pediatric dentistry shapes a child’s view of the dentist. Much of a child’s anxiety at the dentist is fear of the unknown; but with a little time, talking and teaching, it’s amazing and infinitely rewarding to see a once fearful child become a trusting little patient over just a few visits! It’s this marriage of clinical and emotional care of each child that makes me spring out of bed to go to work every morning. I know I have the best job in the world; I absolutely love what I do. I feel honored, blessed and excited to be back in South Tampa! I look forward to meeting each and every one of my patients and to the start of a great dental experience for everyone. ”Most important to Dr. Lauren are her husband, daughters Sadie Miles and Libby Rose, and her family. Married in June 2014 – and friends since they were 14 years old – Lauren and T.J. married at Tampa’s Sacred Heart Catholic Church just as generations of their families had before them -and she loves nothing more than time spent with her family. Dr. Lauren is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist) and a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Florida Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Tampa Bay Pediatric Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the West Coast Dental Association, and the Florida Dental Association.
