In 1989, Lori Welch Wilson followed her passion and graduated from the Dental Assisting Program at Alamance Community College, Burlington North Carolina. She has been a pediatric dental assistant for 30 years, and “The Tooth Fairy” for 20 years of her dental career. Wilson was named Alamance Community College Distinguished Alumna in 2019.
Wilson wrote and published her first book, “Tooth Fairy In Disguise” in 2017. Wilson says, “It was a dream come true! I thank God every day for this blessing. I pray to continue to use the gifts God gave me to inspire children to read more books and have great dental habits. I want children to love to read books like I did when I was a little girl.”
Lori Welch Wilson resides in Yanceyville, NC with her husband, Ricky Wilson, and their two sons, Logan and Luke Wilson. She believes it is her personal calling to be an advocate for promoting good dental health in children.
