Finding a dental practice that stands out from the rest sounds easy, but it can be more difficult than you think, even in The Woodlands. Mandy tried different dentists before she found her dentist for life, Carrie Muzny, DDS & Associates. Dr. Carrie Muzny, Dr. Reynolds Lawnin, Dr. Chase Nesloney, and their entire team go above and beyond to provide high-quality dentistry and individualized care with a personal touch. Mandy was thrilled to find them, and you will be, too!
Mandy No Longer Fears Going to the Dentist
Like many of us, Mandy felt anxious about dental appointments due to a bad childhood experience. Fortunately, a friend referred her to Dr. Carrie Muzny.
“I was looking for a dentist that makes me feel comfortable and well-cared for,” she says. “A practice that provides sedation dentistry is also important to me.”
The minute Mandy walked through the door, the receptionist smiled, greeted her by name, and “paid attention to detail on a personal level.” Mandy was also impressed with Dr. Muzny’s stylish, loft-inspired office with views overlooking The Woodlands’ Market Square.
“The office is beautiful. It doesn’t have that stuffy, dental office feel. Plus, the dentists and staff genuinely enjoy making a connection with their patients, and go out of their way to help you feel relaxed and at home.”
Mandy praises Dr. Muzny’s chair-side manner as well. “She listens and is so personable—you feel like she’s an old friend. You can tell Dr. Muzny hires people that share her values and character—polite, kind, gentle, professional, and caring.”
Now, thanks to Dr. Carrie Muzny, DDS & Associates, Mandy can visit the dentist without being fearful. “I have friends who hate going to the dentist and I refer them to Dr. Muzny without hesitation. It’s great to go to an appointment without feeling anxious.”
Comfortable, Convenient, High-Tech, High-Quality
Winner of a 2016 Living Magazine Best Of Readers’ Choice Award, Dr. Muzny uses a team approach to provide the exceptional level of care and service her patients enjoy. Convenience is also a priority, and with a broad range of in-house services, patients don’t have to worry about being referred elsewhere for specialized treatments, such as wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, IV sedation, and reconstructive dentistry.
“Dr. Lawnin, Dr. Nesloney, and I enjoy working together and often work as a team on the same patient when different specialized services are required. We have our individual areas of focus and are specially trained in different disciplines,” says Dr. Muzny, who stays up-to-date on new advancements and is passionate about continuing education (CE). The other dentists and dental professionals in her office regularly take CE courses as well, with Dr. Muzny leading by example.
The most exciting new piece of technology Dr. Muzny recently added— a 3D Cone Beam X-Ray system—is another example of how the office sets itself apart from other dental practices. This highly specialized X-ray system produces detailed 3D images of the patients’ jaw and surrounding structures. Not only does it allow for a much more thorough evaluation of the jawbone and teeth, it is a significantly safer and more reliable method of implant dentistry because the X-ray shows the exact nerve location to place the implant. Dr. Muzny states, “I believe this is truly the next standard of care in dentistry. Our patients are happy to not have to travel to a special X-ray facility to get these necessary images completed.”
Meet the Dentists
In practice in The Woodlands for 13 years, Dr. Carrie Muzny continues to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technology for the office. Dedicated to lifelong learning, she has attended some of the most elite post-doctoral programs in the country, including the Dr. John Kois and Pankey Institutes. In 2012, she was awarded a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), after completing over 500 hours of continuing education and completing a post doctorate exam.
Dr. Muzny earned a BS in biology at Texas A&M University, and a DDS from the University of Texas Dental School in Houston, graduating with honors. She grew up in Spring, Texas, and enjoys being part of The Woodlands community where she lives with her husband, Victor, and their two children. The family is active in the community and The Woodlands United Methodist Church.
Dr. Reynolds Lawnin joined the practice in 2013. He attended The John Cooper School in The Woodlands, earned an undergraduate degree in engineering from Vanderbilt University, and a DDS from New York University. He went on to complete a two-year residency at UT/Memorial Hermann in the Texas Medical Center where he focused on advanced dental techniques including, IV sedations, implant dentistry, and full mouth reconstruction. He is currently a faculty member in the University of Texas Dental School’s hospital-based residency.
Dr. Chase Nesloney joined the team in 2015. He graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical sciences, then earned a DDS at UT Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA), graduating with honors. He completed a post-doctorate residency program at UTHSCSA where he focused on advanced dental techniques including wisdom teeth removal, implant dentistry, IV sedation (sleep dentistry), and complex patient management.
