Meet the Doctors

Dr. Laura Fauchier

Laura Fauchier, DDS

Dr. Laura’s goals are clear and simple; she desires to give you the highest possible quality of personalized dental care in the most comfortable environment possible. You will notice from the first time she comes to meet you that she keeps the people around her relaxed and happy while still assuring they are well informed and comfortable with their options. Should you ever require dental treatment, you will find that she is patient, gentle, and ever ready to assure you are relaxed.

Dr. Laura Fauchier is an Iowa native who grew up in Mt Vernon and Cedar Rapids, and is a graduate of Washington High School. She has been in the dental industry for 15 years, first as a dental assistant, then later she returned to school and completed dental school in 2007 at The University of Iowa. Throughout her academic career, Dr Laura received many academic awards and did so while balancing a home and family, as Dr. Laura was already a mother when she returned to school.

Dr Laura has received advanced education in lasers, digital dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, study of the bite, worn teeth, implants, implant supported dentures, communication, periodontal disease, and esthetic fillings. She is also a certified life coach and teaches other dentists how to achieve their own goals. She has a podcast for dentists on iTunes.

Dr. Laura had two daughters when she started dental school: Sally was 4 and Emma was 2. During her sophomore year of dental school, she had her son, Max. The kids were just 8, 6 and 3 when she graduated. Everybody has really changed! Here are current pictures of the family and each of the kids. Dr Laura remarried in 2016 and gained a third daughter, Carleigh. All pictured above!

Dr. Erica Recker

Erica Recker, DDS

Dr. Erica Recker grew up on a farm outside of Oelwein, Iowa and was the valedictorian of the Oelwein High School Class of 2009. She received a BS degree with Distinction in Integrative Physiology from The University of Iowa in 2013 and continued her education at The University of Iowa College of Dentistry & Dental Clinics, where she received her DDS with research honors in 2018.

Throughout her dental school career, she co-authored nine publications featured in prestigious dental journals. She held leadership roles in several student organizations, and she even won the dental school talent show with her vocal parody of Phantom of the Opera, entitled “Phantom of the Operatory” during her second year.

Outside of dentistry, she enjoys reading, playing tennis, a good Netflix binge, spending time with her family, and attending performing arts events, especially musicals and the ballet. If you’re lucky, she might even sing or dance during your appointment!

Dr. Erica puts her research expertise to use by staying up-to-date with the latest and greatest dental materials, technologies, and treatment options. Dr. Erica especially enjoys restorative dentistry, oral surgery, and seeing children. She is a member of the Iowa Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Erica prides herself on providing compassionate and patient-centered comprehensive dental care. Each smile is unique, and she strives to positively transform patient’s lives by restoring function, esthetics, and overall oral health. Her kind and caring nature ensures that a trip to the dentist doesn’t have to be an anxiety-ridden or scary experience. Dr. Erica is excited to meet you and help you achieve your oral health goals.
