Dr. Tori McLaughlin was born and raised in Wooster, Ohio where she discovered at a young age, after having braces herself that she wanted to be an orthodontist. After seeing the positive impact orthodontic treatment had in her own life, she knew being able to give that same feeling to others would be the best job in the world! She started her educational journey with a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition Science from The Ohio State University. Continuing her pursuit of orthodontics, Dr. Tori received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2018, followed by her Masters of Science and Certificate in Orthodontics all from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. Throughout her orthodontic education, Dr. Tori received extensive training among various patient populations including adults, children, interdisciplinary and craniofacial cases. During residency, Dr. Tori served as the resident champion for the American Association of Orthodontists and remains an active member of the AAO as well as the American Dental Association. After 11 consecutive years at Ohio State, Dr. Tori is not only a highly trained orthodontist but also a tried-and-true Buckeye; if you let out an “O-H” when you come see us, you’ll be sure to get an “I-O” right back!
Dr. Tori and her husband, John, are thrilled to be returning to northeast Ohio where they grew up together as high school sweethearts. In their spare time, they love being outside and active! Whether it’s hiking, running, biking or fishing, they love finding adventure with their giant 200 lb mastiff, Palmer. In addition to being outside, the McLaughlin family loves serving their community. During their time in Columbus they enjoyed volunteering at the Special Olympics and serving their church in children’s ministry. They are so excited to continue their commitment to service and become further involved in the Ashland community. Dr. Tori is honored to be joining the Gregg Orthodontics team and she cannot wait to meet each and every one of you. Behind every beautiful smile is a unique and beautiful person, and Dr. Tori is committed to not just knowing your smile, but knowing you!
