Dr. Hurley was born and raised in the small Northeastern Wisconsin peninsula known as Door County. She attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI for her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Sciences and Marquette University School of Dentistry for her Doctorate of Dental Surgery Degree, graduating Summa Cum Laude with both. During her time at Marquette, Dr. Hurley was awarded many honors including induction into Alpha Sigma Nu Jesuit Honor Society and the very prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society. She was also recognized for academic excellence and outstanding leadership by the American Association of Women Dentists, was commemorated by the Milwaukee Odontological Academy for retaining top-five class ranking, was elected president of her chapter of Delta Sigma Delta Professional Dental Fraternity, was invited to participate in Marquette’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery honors program and was honorably commended by Marquette for clinical excellence in all aspects of patient care.
Clinical excellence and advanced dentistry are pillars in Dr. Hurley’s daily practice. Dr. Hurley is a true academic and she strongly values continued learning through some of dentistry’s most esteemed institutes so that she may provide her patients with the most current and top-notch clinical care across all modalities of dentistry, creating a true “dental home” within her office. In dedication to providing you with the highest quality care available, Dr. Hurley has pursued hundreds of hours of advanced continuing education across all facets of general dentistry, with an extensive focus on cutting-edge, advanced, and safe practices of dental surgery and implant dentistry.
Dr. Hurley has completed over 600 hours of advanced education in implant dentistry and oral surgery through some of the most distinguished training institutes in the country and world. She has placed hundreds of implants and has helped her patients restore their dentition by replacing single missing teeth, segments of teeth, and full-mouth smile-reconstructions with dental implants. Full-mouth smile reconstructions are Dr. Hurley’s passion as her training in implant dentistry allows her to offer her patients confident, healthy, and realistic smiles that they never thought were possible. Dr. Hurley is currently working through the rigorous credentialing process of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and will soon become an associate fellow with the organization. She is also diligently working toward becoming a diplomate with the American Board of Oral Implantologists.
Although dental surgery and implant dentistry are her true passion, Dr. Hurley enjoys providing her patients with all aspects of clinical care. Dr. Hurley has studied the delivery of cosmetic botulinum toxin and dermal fillers as well as TMJ/orofacial pain. She has also trained for many hours in clear aligner orthodontics and endodontics. Dr. Hurley is a dedicated member in the Academy of General Dentistry and will soon achieve her fellowship award with the academy due to her dedication to advanced post-graduate training across all aspects of general dentistry.
Dr. Hurley holds humanitarian service and giving back through dentistry very near to her heart. She has traveled to Honduras and Nicaragua on several mission trips providing dental treatment to local villages in dire need of care. Dr. Hurley understands that the need for community service through dentistry is everywhere, including right here in Baltimore, and she strives to provide dentistry that will better her patients’ lives each day. She looks forward to serving the Canton community through dentistry and being more to the community than just another dental practice.
Dr. Hurley and her husband Matt met at Marquette University through a service trip to Honduras and got married a few years later. They moved to Maryland in 2018 and they quickly fell in love with Baltimore City and knew that they were here to stay. They now call Upper Fells Point home, where they reside with their 105 lb rescue dog, Cosmo. In her free time, Dr. Hurley enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, being active and being outdoors. When not in the office or attending a continuing education course, she can be found hiking, camping, biking, reading, working out at the Merritt Club in Canton, hitting a SolidCore class, or just walking Cosmo around Patterson Park. If you see her out and about, she invites you to stop and say hello! It has always been Dr. Hurley’s dream to practice dentistry within her own community and serve the dental needs of her own neighbors and friends, and she could not be more delighted to have landed here in Canton. She hopes to see you in or out of the office soon!
