We Will Help You Achieve Your Best Smile!
Dr. Carrie Orn
A little about me: First of all, I love my profession! I really enjoy working with entire families and getting to know my patients. It brings me great joy to help patients be proud of their smile. We stay current and continually attend education courses to bring our patients the up-to-date tools and skills to stay healthy and prevent oral diseases. It is truly great to be able to work with my team and bring our patients the best care!
I am proud to say I am a 5th generation Jamestown resident. After attending Jamestown High School, I graduated from UND with a Psychology degree and Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha with summa cum laude. In 2009, after graduating from dental school, we moved back to Jamestown and bought the practice of Dr. Wayne McDaniel.
In my spare time, my husband, Ryan, and our kids, Olivia & Porter, Breanna & Brady, are active and we enjoy doing things together, especially outdoors! I am active in our church, Rotary Club, and a supporter of the University of Jamestown activities. Professionally, I am a Trustee on the Board for the ND Dental Association and have been an active member of the Heartland Study Club since 2009. In 2020, I was honored to receive the Excellence in Comprehensive Dentistry Award (HSC), 2018 New Dentist of the Year (NDDA), and 2015 Clinician of the year (HSC). It is an honor to be able to take care of my patients and to also be honored by my peers in this way.
