Laura Collatz, DDS
Serving as a teaching assistant and private tutor to other dental students while pursuing her own studies, Dr. Collatz graduated with honors from the UNC School of Dentistry. Prior to UNC dental school, Dr. C. was a dental hygienist for 13 years. She practices all facets of general dentistry and enjoys working with children and adults alike.
She has been the president of the Chatham County Dental Society for 5 years, and has received the Top Dentist award, voted on by other dentists, multiple times. She volunteers her services with local and statewide dental relief efforts. She enjoys not only creating beautiful smiles but giving folks reasons to share them.
Once upon a time, Dr. Laura entertained children and sold handmade fairy wings at the Carolina Renaissance Festival. Sometimes, Dr. Laura still dons pointy ears, delicate wings, and glitter to become the Tooth Fairy. She visits kindergartens, dance schools and assisted living facilities alike to promote good oral health. If you’re lucky, you may even spot the tooth fairy at a visit to her office!
