Meet Dr. Laura Garden

Photo: Dr Laura Garden - Endodontist in Salem VADr. Laura Tolusso Garden is a board-certified Endodontist who was born and raised in Roanoke, Virginia. She graduated with Distinction from the University of Virginia. After receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, she completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry.

Dr. Garden practiced general dentistry in Midlothian, Virginia for several years prior to completing her endodontic training. This time in private practice allowed her to gain experience in comprehensive treatment planning and restorative dentistry. Further, this unique perspective enhances her ability to provide quality care to her patients while working hand-in-hand with their general dentist.

Dr. Garden returned to Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry for her residency training. She earned her Certificate in Endodontics and Master of Science in Dentistry. With a devotion to providing the best treatment that endodontics can offer, Dr. Garden spent many years to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. She is part of a distinguished group of endodontists who have demonstrated their dedication to professional growth and providing the highest quality of patient care.

Outside of work, Dr. Garden and her husband, Ben, are thrilled to be in their hometown with their two young sons and exploring all of the new restaurants, festivals, and outdoor activities that Roanoke has to offer. 



Dr. Garden is honored to be teaching at the Carilion Clinic General Practice Residency, a not–for–profit health care organization based in Roanoke, VA. Her course will involve comprehensive training in rotary endodontics, providing lectures and clinical education to dental residents. Carilion is partnering with Virginia Tech to develop a premiere health care center
