Stephanie grew up in Myrtlewood, Alabama, and moved to Tuscaloosa in 2008. She and her husband have a lively 7-year-old daughter. Stephanie started working in the dental field as an assistant when she was only 19 years old. Her compassionate care and gentle touch made it a natural transition to become a Registered Dental Hygienist.
Stephanie loves that moment of surprise and joy when a patient sees their clean teeth for the first time after avoiding the dentist for a while. But don’t let her sweet voice and feminine demeanor fool you – when she’s not polishing your pearly whites, you’ll find her fishing, hunting, or honing her skills at the shooting range.
Becky grew up in Orlando, Florida but has been in Alabama since 1991 when she moved here to attend the University of Alabama. She was a part of the Flag Corp in the Million Dollar Band and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in healthcare management. Becky has worked in the dental and medical fields since 2000 and brings great experience and understanding to the practice. Becky and her husband have been married for almost 30 years and have three wonderful children. Their oldest is a second lieutenant in the Army, currently stationed in Germany. In her spare time, she’s usually found at the tennis courts cheering on their twins or serving at Taylorville United Methodist Church.
Marianna is a native of Carrolton, Alabama, and moved to Tuscaloosa in 2013. She attended Shelton State and the University of Alabama before she decided to join the dental field. She’s been Dr. Carlson’s right-hand since she joined the team as a dental assistant in 2016. Marianna’s favorite part of the job is helping patients find new confidence in their smiles. She’s an active member at the Church of the Highlands where she has participated in and led small group studies in addition to attending Highlands College for ministry & leadership. When she’s not at church or work, she enjoys cooking, running, being outdoors, and Alabama football.
Lori is from Moundville, where she lives on a farm with her husband and 4-year-old daughter. She graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor of Science degree and more recently completed the Alabama Dental Hygiene Program at UAB. Lori has been working in dentistry since 2015 in both family and pediatric settings. She loves how patient interactions allow her to have a positive impact on people’s lives. In her free time, she can be found enjoying the outdoors, exercising, cheering on UA football and basketball teams, or with her friends and family at Northport Free Will Baptist Church.
Molly grew up in Gadsden, Alabama, and has been in Tuscaloosa since 2006. She has been caring for dental patients since 2003. She began her career in dentistry as a dental assistant and joined our team at Tuscaloosa General Dentistry in 2014 after becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist.
She and her husband have 3 beautiful girls and spend most of their free time on the soccer fields, watching Alabama football, and traveling. The same competitive spirit that drives Molly to excel at Crossfit gives her great satisfaction when she can win over a patient who used to dread the dental office!
DeLaune is a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She moved to Alabama to attend Samford University and has been here ever since. She obtained a master’s degree in social work from the University of Alabama and worked as a substance abuse counselor in Birmingham while Dr. Carlson finished dental school. They have been married since 2006 and have two active, young boys. DeLaune only agreed to help Dr. Carlson open the practice and get things up and running – but more than ten years later, she’s still here!
This is truly their family business, and she makes it a point that our patients are treated and welcomed like extended family. If she’s not in the office or chasing the boys around she enjoys reading, crossword puzzles, cooking, or planning their next family adventure. DeLaune’s ardent support of LSU athletics often strains their marriage during football season.
