Meet Clear Smiles Alaska Staff

Lauren Sparaga, Head Orthodontic Technician

Lauren – Treatment Coordinator

Lauren is from Anchorage, AK, and is currently pursuing her Nursing degree from the University of Alaska Anchorage. She has worked at Clear Smiles Alaska for over ten years and has gone through metal braces (as a teenager) and finished her own Invisalign treatment in 2009. She is so happy with her smile! Her favorite thing about working here is how much happier patients are to be in Invisalign treatment rather than traditional metal braces. She loves spending time fishing, boating, hunting, spending time at her property with her husband and training her new horse.

“Having had both metal braces AND Invisalign helps me convey how much BETTER Invisalign is in many aspects: Adjustments are easier, office visits are faster, cleaning is a breeze, and NO emergencies! I’m so glad to be able to help patients in that way.”

Kate, Orthodontic Technician
