Dr Lagos enjoys getting to know her patients and helping to make a positive impact on their lives. She is passionate about fostering fun and positive dental experiences, and ensures she takes the time to understand the individual needs of her patients.
While enjoying all aspects of general dentistry, Dr Lagos holds clinical interests in restorative and paediatric dentistry.

Dr Lagos regularly attends professional development courses and training to further her skills and knowledge.
Away from the practice, Dr Lagos is often found spending quality time with her family and friends, painting, drawing, hiking and enjoying all things outdoors.
