After leaving the island in 2015, Dr. Mead traveled to the University of Georgia – School of Veterinary Medicine to complete her clinical training. Dr. Mead has a profound interest in dentistry which has lead her away from full service practice and to Pet Dental USA. Dr. Mead believes canine and feline dentistry is of utmost importance and strives to educate her clients as to why. She has taken elective courses in dentistry over the past three years and is looking forward to making dentistry her primary focus. When she isn’t interacting with her patients, she spends time with her boyfriend Ryan and their two dogs (Ruby & Uri). Dr. Mead really enjoys watching the New England Patriots, playing tennis, and exploring her new backyard in Arizona! We are so excited Dr. Mead has joined the Pet Dental USA family!

We are so excited Dr. Cassidy has joined the Pet Dental USA family!
Dr. Hansen – Veterinarian
Dr. Hansen’s passion for veterinary dentistry began at the University of Illinois -Urbana/Champaign’s College of Veterinary Medicine, where she completed multiple dentistry electives and a dentistry rotation under the highly respected veterinary dentistry pioneer, Dr. Sandra Manfra-Marretta, DVM, DACVS, DAVDC. Dr. Hansen was awarded her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2007, but continued her education in veterinary dentistry following graduation with countless continuing education courses and dentistry conferences. After repeatedly experiencing firsthand, how dramatically she could improve the comfort, health, and happiness of her patients when their dental pain and disease were appropriately treated, in 2019, Dr. Hansen decided to focus her private practice exclusively on dental care and oral surgery. When asked why she loves veterinary dentistry so much, she said “When I see how happy my patients are after they’ve healed and their mouths are no longer painful, I feel like an absolute hero. I get to go to work every day and make the world a little bit better place. How lucky am I?!?”
A Chicago native, Dr. Hansen chose Arizona as her home in 2013. The Hansens share their
home with two elderly and almost toothless rescue Pugs, Hall and Oates, and an aquarium full of assorted aquatic creatures. For the record, she’s also had almost every critter under the sun, and considers herself a recovering crazy cat lady, having at one point, 6 cats. She is a loyal supporter of ALECA (Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association) and has a strong interest in, and love for, Military Working Dogs. In the very near future, plans are in the works to adopt a retiring MWD.
Outside of work, Dr. Hansen enjoys hanging out with her son, CrossFit, rowing, shooting,
volunteering for Feed My Starving Children, and fundraising for a variety of veteran’s charities, most notably, GallantFew.
Pet Dental USA is thrilled to have Dr. Hansen join the team. Welcome to the family and we are excited for the future of Pet Dental USA in the east valley, coming soon.

Lorrie has shown horses at shows and even qualified one of her own for World. Lorrie has worked for Rochester Animal Control starting as a kennel attendant and moving up to Animal Control Officer where she met many different people.

Laura – Administration
Laura grew up in a military family. She moved to Arizona with her husband and children in 1984. She is a dedicated mom and grandmother to a large brood of two and four-legged critters. After being involved with animals since childhood, the career switch was made to working with them about 26 years ago. Working in the veterinary field helped her to narrow her interests down to veterinary dentistry.
Interests outside of work include reading, crochet, baking, and anything related to her grandkids. She volunteers with Vets for Vets Pets at the Arizona Stand down. Currently, Laura is the proud pet mom to two dogs, both were rescues due to their health issues. We are excited Laura chose to join the Pet Dental USA Scottsdale team.
