Dr. Lori Babineau is very passionate about dentistry and is dedicated to insuring that every patient has a comfortable and relaxing experience. She believes in fully educating her patients about their conditions, and she designs treatment plans to meet each individual’s needs.

A native Texan, Dr. Lori was born and raised in Amarillo. She attended the University of Texas in Austin, where she was a member of Delta Gamma sorority. After graduating from UT with her BA in Biology, Dr. Lori had the opportunity to move to Boston to attend dental school, and there she met her future husband, Dr. John Babineau.

She graduated with her DMD degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, and while the experience of living in Boston was exhilarating both academically and culturally, Dr. Lori was anxious to get back to her sunny home of Texas. She and Dr. John established their practice in Austin in the early nineties and have been practicing together ever since.

After receiving her doctorate, Dr. Lori has continued to hone her dental and communication skills through advanced coursework at the prestigious Hornbrook Group and Dental Boot Kamp Masters program.
