He has special interests in Gnathology – the study of how the teeth and bite relate to the jaw joint and muscles used for chewing, diagnosing and treatment planning for the restoration of oral function and esthetics, and the maintenance of good health of the gum tissues and bone supporting the teeth.

He originated the first Rockwall Parks and Recreation Ordinance and the first park board. He also served as Mayor Pro Tem and was past president of Rockwall Rotary.

OUR STAFF

Carrie

staff-carrieRegistered Dental Hygienist
I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 27 years. I graduated from Tyler Junior College with an Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene; Bachelor of Allied Health Education from UT Southwestern Medical Center. I have worked for Dr. Kuhlman & Laun since 1990. I believe patient education is very important to achieve dental health. A hygienist not only “cleans teeth”, she is an educator, periodontal therapist and most of all a friend. My husband and I have two children and live in Royse City. Outside of work I enjoy teaching Sunday school, volunteering as a Girl Scout leader, and spending time with family and friends.


staff-dannaDanna

Administrative Assistant and RDA
I have been a member of the team since 1995. I am a Registered Dental Assistant, certified in x-rays, nitrous oxide monitoring and CPR. I love my job and the people I work with! A lot of our patients have been with us since the start of the practice so they are more like friends than patients and that makes our job fun. As a matter of fact, I enjoy them so much I decided to marry one of them! When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my new husband, cooking, going on motorcycle trips, hunting and hanging out at the deer lease!

RDA Expanded Duty Assistant
I am a Registered Dental Assistant certified in x-rays, nitrous oxide monitoring and CPR. I have been a member of Dr. Kuhlman & Luan’s team since 1979 as a dental assistant. I enjoy taking care of my patients as much as I did the first day I began working with Dr. Kuhlman. I truly enjoy helping our patients through their appointments because lets face it, not everyone likes going to the dentist. I have lived in Rockwall all my life and even though it has grown enormously, it still has that small town atmosphere where people want to be treated like you’re their friend and the people taking care of you really know you and your needs. Outside of work I enjoy spending time in my flowerbeds, time with my pooch Brogan, and my husband Jimmy who is also a lifetime Yellow Jacket! My daughter Nicole and son Corey are the loves of my life. Nicole is also in the healthcare field and Corey is in the United States Army.

I have enjoyed working in the dental field since 1992 and became employed by Dr. Laun in 1999. I decided to follow Dr Laun and became part of the team in 2003.

My goal is to offer the best quality service in patient care and to make each visit a pleasant experience.

staff-winonaWinona

Administrative Assistant
I have been working at the front desk for Dr. Kuhlman & Laun for the last couple of years. And I enjoy it very much. I have worked in the dental field for about 20 years and I can truly say these guys are the BEST! Our office really strives to make our patients comfortable and happy with their experience when they visit our office. We have so many patients tell us how happy they are that they found us and are so grateful for the care from our wonderful staff.

My husband and I live in Mesquite and enjoy spending time at our lake house on Cedar Creek Lake, as well as taking rides on his Harley. We also have a daughter that lives across town from us with her husband and our 3 beautiful grandchildren.
