Dr. Lauren Carney was born and raised in Irving, Texas. From an early age, she loved spending time at the orthodontic office of her father (Dr. Pat Ohlenforst) and wanted to be an orthodontist herself! She attended Ursuline Academy of Dallas for high school where she also played Varsity Soccer. Dr. Carney learned a lot about perseverance and hard work from Ursuline soccer and also loved helping Ursuline win several of its now over 20 State Championships! Dr. Carney attended the University of Notre Dame (Go Irish!) where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology. Then Dr. Carney moved back home to Dallas to attend Baylor College of Dentistry for dental school. After dental school, she completed a 3 year residency in Orthodontics also at Baylor in Dallas. While there she earned her Master of Science in Oral Biology and Certificate in Orthodontics.


She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, the Dallas County Dental Society, and Irving Dental Study Club.

Dr. Carney met her husband, Kevin, in high school (shortly after his orthodontic treatment at her Dad’s office!), and they started dating when they were sophomores at Notre Dame. Kevin went to Cistercian Preparatory School in Irving and now has his own Information Security company, Mosaic InfoSec. Dr. Carney and her husband are parishioners of St. Monica Catholic Church and live in an amazing neighborhood in Dallas called Sparkman with their two children.
