Carlson Family Dentistry

About Us

The Carlson Family

Drs. Nathan and Grace Carlson, a husband and wife team, are both graduates of Loma Linda School of Dentistry. Carlson Family Dentistry is as the name suggests, "family" dentistry. Our patients range in all ages, from children to senior citizens. The services we provide also take on a wide range. Whether your dental needs are preventative care such as regular cleanings and exams, or full-mouth reconstruction, you will be treated with gentleness and professional care.

Nathan Carlson, DDS

Dr. Nathan Carlson graduated from Loma Linda School of Dentistry in 2003. He prides himself in keeping up-to-date on the most recent advances in dentistry so that he is sure to implement the best materials and techniques in his patient care. His friends and patients often label him as, "calm" and "reassuring". He is a proud daddy of two young boys; on most evenings, one would find him playing trains, wrestling, or reading with his two sons. They are by far his favorite "hobby". When he is able to get time off for himself, he enjoys windsurfing, snowboarding, reading, and cooking.

Grace Carlson, DDS

From the time Dr. Grace Carlson was in the 3rd grade, she knew she wanted to be a dentist. In 2001, from Loma Linda School of Dentistry, she fulfilled her professional ambition. As an out-going people person, the thing she loves the most about dentistry is the relationships she is able to build with people. She takes great interest in talking with her patients and getting to know them on a personal level. As a busy mother of two, she spends most of her free time enjoying her family. Her other hobbies include Bible study, snowboarding, and music.

Lenna Horan - Front Office Manager

Lenna will be the person you first speak with when you call the office. She will be able to assist you with any questions you may have on your dental insurance, dental bill statements, or payment plans. As a graduate from Concorde, she has over 10 years of managing experience. She was raised in Yucaipa, and has seen our small town change over the years. She enjoys cooking and spending time with her family.

Kelly Sperling - Registered Dental Assistant

Kelly will be the primary dental assistant in the "back office" as well as chairside. As an experienced RDA, she has over 28 years of experience in chairside assistance. Her experience reflects in her abilities to be both a gentle and efficient assistant, making the procedure as comfortable as possible for the patient. She excels at making people feel relaxed during their appointments. She loves to sew, cook, shop, talk, and eat chocolate.

Katieanne George - Dental Hygienist

Katieanne is our dental hygienist. She is a graduate of Loma Linda University, and was raised in the Redlands/Yucaipa area. During your "dental cleaning" visit at our office, you'll notice immediately that Katieanne has the great combination of being thorough, yet completely gentle. She also stays up on the latest research and trends in dental hygiene, and will educate you according to your own personal dental hygiene needs. During her spare time, she enjoys playing and coaching volleyball, reading, watching movies, and spending time with her husband and 2 dogs. And while dental hygiene is an obvious passion in her life, she admits to having a "sweet tooth" for nearly any kind of dessert!
