Dr. Renee Carlson was born and raised in Michigan. She knew she wanted to be a dentist back in the seventh grade, when she researched occupations for one of her classes. Dr. Carlson is a caring, compassionate person who loves being an orthodontist! Having a love for the mountains of North Carolina, she and her husband relocated after serving in the United States Air Force and joined the TS Orthodontics & Dental Specialists team in 2016. Both Dr. Carlson and her husband retired from active duty after serving 20+ years. Dr. Carlson lives by the Air Force’s three core values of “integrity, service before self, and excellence in all you do,” and applies these values to every patient encounter. She is very proud of the high quality orthodontic services she has provided to the men and women in uniform serving our great nation.


Dr. Carlson received her bachelor’s degree in Microbiology from the University of Michigan. She went on to earn her doctorate of Dental Science from the University of Detroit-Mercy School of Dentistry, followed by a one year residency in general dentistry at the Medical College of Ohio. It was there that she was mentored by several military professors and decided to join the Air Force Dental Corps.

After seven years as a general dentist, Dr. Carlson attended the Tri-Service Orthodontic Residency Program in San Antonio, Texas and became an orthodontist. After living coast to coast, north to south in the US, and being stationed overseas in Korea and Italy, Dr. Carlson and her family love to travel and experience new places.
