Lauren Shneiber, Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Lauren. I am proud to be a part of Dr Parsa and Dr Shariff's fantastic team. My dental journey began back in 2005 in Indiana where I grew up. Five years I worked chairside as a clinical assistant then continued my education as a hygienist because I fell in love with dentistry. I graduated dental hygiene school here in Georgia from Lanier Technical College in 2015. I look forward to making your dental experience as comfortable as possible and something you look forward to. I am known to occasionally quote random 90's comedy movies between discussing helpful dental tips for your personal home care. My free time is spent playing games and cooking with my 6 year old son, Aiden. I am excited to see you soon!


Olivia Ellis, Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Olivia! I am a cutting-edge hygienist with the latest training! As a clinician, I am first a listener and then an educator. I enjoy getting to know my patients on a individual level to provide quality dental care. In my free time I volunteer with the Global Dental Relief to travel around the world and provide dental care to children in underdeveloped countries! I’m also an avid foody as well, so please feel free to suggest any great local restaurants to me as I’m new to the area!
