Lorena M. Surber, D.D.S. graduated summa cum laude from West Virginia University in 1972 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. She practiced as a Dental Hygienist for 14 years before going to dental school. In 1990, Dr. Surber graduated summa cum laude from West Virginia University School of Dentistry. She then completed a General Practice Residency at Charleston Area Medical Center. Dr. Surber tells us, "I was inspired to become a dentist by my aunt, a dental hygienist. She often talked to me about dental hygiene which motivated me to become a hygienist. I later decided to go to dental school because I enjoy caring for my patients and have truly found my niche as a dentist. The joy I see on my patients' faces when they complete their cosmetic dental plans never ceases to inspire me." Today, Dr. Surber combines new technologies with gentle dental care to help her patients achieve proper dental health. Dr. Surber explains, "A beautiful smile begins on the inside. That's why I get to know my patient as a person before I treat them. I listen to their fears, concerns and expectations. Then I design a smile-enhancement plan just for them. By catering to individual needs, I can truly give my patients a reason to smile." Dr. Surber is proud of her friendly and dedicated staff whose goal is to provide a comfortable, caring dental experience for patients. Patient comfort is a key aspect of Dr. Surber's dental practice. That means taking her patient's fears seriously and providing them with many comforts while being treated. Dr. Surber enjoys challenging and technical cases. Dr. Surber has stayed up-to-date in her dental field by completing more than 500 hours of continuing education classes. She believes that education and training helps her provide the best dental care for her patients. Dr. Surber appreciates the support of her family which brings her pride and joy. Her daughter, Claire, is a veterinarian and was married earlier this year. She now lives and works in Georgia. Mac is Dr. Surber's oldest son. He graduated from West Point and is a captain in the U.S. Army. Mac is now stationed at Fort Benning in Georgia after serving 16 months in Afghanistan. Jonathan is Dr. Surber's youngest son. He is living in San Diego, California after graduating from the University of Charleston in South Carolina. Dr. Surber is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Kanawha Valley Dental Society.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
