Education & Advanced Training

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 Bachelor of Arts in Biology, Dr. Lori had the opportunity to move to Boston to attend dental school where she also met her future husband, Dr. John Babineau.

She graduated with her Doctorate of Dental Medicine 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. She has completed extensive continued education in a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures with an emphasis on porcelain restorations, veneers, and implants.

Dr. Lori especially enjoys doing more conservative, bonded porcelain restorations, as well as cosmetic full coverage porcelain restorations that are fabricated in their office with an E4D CAD/CAM scanning and milling machine. She considers every restoration to be a tiny work of art.

Dr. Lori is a certified Invisalign provider and has received certification in no-preparation Lumineer veneers.
