We Will Help You Achieve Your Best Smile!
Dr. Carrie Orn
I am proud to say that my children are 6th generation Jamestown residents. My mother’s family (Eddy) has been active in Jamestown since the late 1800s. My husband and I moved back to Jamestown in 2009 and I have loved being a member of this wonderful community. I am active in our church, the Rotary Club, Trac Advisory Committee, Heartland Study Club for Dentistry, and an active Board Member for the North Dakota Dental Association (NDDA) as well as an active member for the American Dental Association.
My children, Olivia and Porter, are my life and keep me busy! We enjoy being active together: running, biking, & going to the lake are a few things we love. We also are avid University of Jamestown sports fans!
