Dr. Cara Lawler
Pedodontist in Goodyear
Dr. Cara Lawler was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. She earned a History degree from Haverford College in Pennsylvania, while also developing her background in teaching and education. After college, she worked towards a state of Hawaii teaching license before serving as a Peace Corps literacy volunteer. Stationed in Jamaica, Dr. Cara worked with students who universally struggled with early childhood caries, an experience through which she realized her passion and talents uniquely fit that of pediatric dentistry.
Dr. Cara obtained her certificate in public health and Doctor of Dental Medicine from the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health, graduating with honors. She then completed her pediatric specialty training through the NYU Langone residency based in Hawaii, where she served as Chief Resident.
Dr. Cara is very excited to be a part of the Hilgers Pediatric Dentistry team in the West Valley. In her free time, you can find her trail running, cooking, reading, and exploring the outdoors with her rambunctious puppy.
