Health Centered Dentistry River Falls with
Dr. John D.
Laughlin III DDS
Practicing since 1972
While living in Milwaukee with my wife and newborn son, I graduated from Marquette University in 1972. I joined the U.S. Air Force and served as a captain in the dental division of Scott Air Force base near St. Louis, Missouri. After serving in the Air Force our family of four, soon to be five, moved to Pierce County where we still reside. Shortly after moving to thearea my dental practice gradually evolved from traditional dentistry into a more holistic philosophy . During my first five years of private practice in Ellsworth, WI. I came to believe that there was more to dentistry than what I had been taught. I began a path of continuing education that has taken me through advanced training in TMJ therapy, orthopedic orthodontics, cranial sacral therapy, bodywork / massage, nutrition, pain management, safe amalgam removal, biological / environmental dentistry, and more. I am still on that path of continuing education and I learn more all the time, spending 200 – 300 hours in class every year. Recently I’ve been publishing original material in article and textbook formats, as well as creating education materials for doctors and patients. I’m looking forward to our new office, and being able to give our patients even better care. Caring for my patients and helping them reach their health goals is what drives me everyday.

Even though I work in Green Bay Country, I am married to a Minnesota Viking boy. GO VIKES! My husband and I love the outdoors and look forward to taking our daughter and son to BWCA when they are old enough to paddle a canoe.
John Laughlin IV
We moved back to the Twin Cities metro area in January of this year (2014) and have happily settled back into life in the Midwest. I’m glad to be spending some of my time lending a hand at Health Centered Dentistry. It is a joy to see the team, patients I’ve known for years, and to meet new patients on their journey to better health. Our first child was born in September of this year and we’re navigating the trials of parenthood with much help from our loved ones.
I am a dental assistant and the patient coordinator here at Health Centered Dentistry. I have worked at Health Centered Dentistry for 4 years. I love spending time with my family, my husband Todd and my two kids Marah and Alex. I love sports, especially softball. I also love watching my kids in all of their athletic events.
