Meet Dr. Laura Cox

Laura Lee Cox, D.D.S


  Dr. Cox is a Knoxville native who loves this area and its people.  She has been providing gentle comprehensive dental care to patients of all ages since the mid 1980's.  She tries to have a good time with her patients while taking good care of their teeth.  Her family and work family have been the primary focus of her life for the last thirty-five years.  She jokingly remembers that she used to love to hike, sail, swim, needlework and work on her home.  With the youngest members of her family soon to begin professional school, perhaps hobbies will resume.  She and her husband hope to travel some in the next few years as new empty nesters.  Listed below are some of the many memberships and awards of Dr. Cox.
