Meet Our Team

At Knoxville Family Dental, our staff is like a family. No matter their role, we love all of our staff members. We only hire individuals who are passionate about you and providing you with top-quality dental care services. Meet the team below!

Dr. Lauren Fey, DMD

Dr. Lauren Fey was born in rural upstate New York. Her father was a dentist, and she grew up working in his office at a young age, sparking her interest and passion for dentistry. She attended undergraduate college in New York to study geography and agricultural sciences. She later moved to Miami, Florida and completed a biomedical master’s program. Lauren was admitted into the Midwestern College of Dental Medicine in Chicago, Illinois in 2012, and graduated in 2016.


Dr. Fey has been practicing general dentistry for the last six years in West Texas and raising three kids who are now in high school and college. She recently moved to Tennessee and is excited to start work in the Knoxville community.


Lauren has a long list of interests and hobbies including music, art, gardening and nutrition. Her newest enjoyment outside of work is riding her motorcycle and taking in the beauty of Eastern Tennessee. She is excited to partner with you to achieve your dental goals.
