A Love for Orthodontics and My Patient Family
“Orthodontics is an exacting and evolving profession that constantly challenges and surprises me. It creates joy and excitement on a daily basis for our patients and for us: We love unwrapping new smiles and seeing the response of our patients and their parents!
“Each patient is uniquely different, and we love to get to know everyone during their course of treatment. Sharing in their lives, and seeing each person’s self-esteem and personality blossom, is an incredible experience. We are fortunate, as we share this experience with every person who changes their smile with us!” ~ Dr. Lori A. Aiosa
Education and Experience
“I have practiced orthodontics for over 20 years. I chose the specialty because of my own experience as a teenager while going through treatment. The increased confidence I received as a result of my care made me want to help others feel the same.”
Before going into practice, Dr. Aiosa completed her:
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine – University of Florida College of Dentistry
- Master of Science – University of Florida College of Dentistry
She regularly attends national, regional, state, and local orthodontic meetings, lectures, and seminars. Through continuing education, Dr. Aiosa stays up to date with the latest technological and methodological improvements in order to best serve her patients. Keeping an open mind to new ideas, and being current on the latest research, enable her to learn continuously and bolster her clinical knowledge in order to provide the ideal treatment and results.
In addition to continuing educational pursuits, Dr. Aiosa teaches FSCJ dental assisting students in basic orthodontic assisting processes. She also volunteers at the Mission of Mercy event in Jacksonville.

Beyond the Practice
Dr. Aiosa was raised in Gainesville and has resided in Clay County since 1994. She and her husband Doug, a CPA, have three adult children — Kevin, Nikki, and Gregory — as well as two cats, Luna and Tanner. The family has also had the pleasure of hosting international students over the years.
If she’s not in the office, Dr. Aiosa can often be found on the tennis courts, as she is an avid player. When the weather is warm, she and her family enjoy boating and love participating in water sports. She is also active in her church choir.
Dr. Aiosa’s greatest personal passion is family. The youngest of eight children, she has a long list of cousins, nieces and nephews, and grand-nieces and nephews, too.
