Dr. McLaughlinFamily Dentist

    I was born in Iowa City and grew up in the town of Dysart, which is about an hour from Cedar Rapids.  I did both my undergrad and dental training at the University of Iowa and graduated from the dental college in 1995.  I joined Dental Touch one year later and have been here ever since.  I am very passionate about changing the way our patients view dentistry.  I have deliberately integrated new technology into our practice to give you a better experience, and focused on cosmetics by earning a fellowship at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.

    I am a huge Hawkeye fan and love to ride bicycles.  I have been on RAGBRAI many times and enjoy competing in several triathlons each year.  I also love the outdoors and go on hiking and backpacking trips into the wilderness with my father and brothers every year.

    I have been married to my wife, Christine, since shortly after graduation from dental school.  We have been blessed with three beautiful children.  Alexa was born in March, 2001, Devin was born in July, 2003 and Cayden was born in August, 2005. We recently added a Morkie dog, Bear, to the mix.

    If you are looking for a cosmetic or family dentist, I am here to help you out.  I am very passionate about life and dentistry, and have a very positive attitude and outlook on both! I love working with my incredible, awesome team and most importantly, changing the lives of my patients.
