Dr. Lori Harrell

My interest in dentistry was sparked by a high school field trip. Touring LSU’s Dental School as a junior led to an internship with my hometown dentist as a senior and I was hooked. I saw the opportunity to form trusting relationships with people of all ages and provide a unique type of healthcare specifically tailored to each person’s needs. I loved people and science and working with my hands…and as a teenager decided that dentistry was the perfect fit for me.

Even though these days family life keeps me busy, I am so glad that I choose to become a dentist over a decade ago. Serving my patients has brought me so much joy through the years and I especially love being a safe place for those people who may be particularly scared or anxious about dentistry.

Dr. Harrell received a degree in Biology with a Minor in Chemistry from McNeese State University in 2002. She married John, her college sweetheart and a newly commissioned Army officer, the very same year. They immediately went to live in Georgia, where they welcomed their first two children, and then onto Germany where Lori decided to pursue her professional dreams and applied to dental school.

The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston was the next adventure for the Harrell family. Their third child came along in 2012, and Dr. Harrell graduated right on time in 2013. After working as an associate in Texas the Army sent the whole family to Belgium where they grew to a party-of-6. Since then, Dr. Harrell has worked as a general dentist in both Virginia and Texas, as well as a volunteer dentist for the Red Cross in Italy. She currently volunteers at the Beautiful Feet Ministries Dental Clinic in Fort Worth.

The Harrell family currently resides in Keller and Dr. Harrell is thrilled to serve the local community as part of the Sky Creek Dental team.
