Dr. Lucy Gores, DDS followed in the footsteps of her dad and grandfather. Her grandfather was an oral surgeon and her father, Dr. Jim Gores, practices alongside her at the Lakeside Dentistry office. Dr. Gores grew up in Rochester, MN and enjoys helping its residents perfect their smiles.

Dr. Lucy Gores was married earlier this year. While she has changed her last name to Meyer, she will remain Dr. Lucy Gores at the office.
