Meet the Team
Carmen is the freshest face at Coulter Family Dentistry. She is from Memphis and attended the University of Tennessee Knoxville for undergrad. Following undergrad she moved back to Memphis and attended dental hygiene school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. She’s crisscrossed the state and is back in Knoxville making teeth shine!
We asked her what is your favorite vacation spot?
Her answer, the Bahamas’s!
No one cares about your teeth more than this all-star hygienist. She works hard to get the gunk off your teeth and keep your gums healthy. Got some coffee stain on your teeth? She will get those pearly whites sparkling again!
Forrest was born and raised in South Knoxville and returned after graduating from East Tennessee State University. The only place you’ll see Forrest sitting is at work because she is always on the go! She’s loves an excuse for quick weekend trips and visiting new places. Her favorite people in the world are her sisters… except when they steal her clothes 😉
We asked her, what is something you want to relive?
Her answer, skydiving!
Katie was born and raised in Knoxville, moved away for a bit after college, and now she’s back home where she’s happiest – close to family. And we mean REALLY close. Katie lives on 4 acres of land where her dad, sister, aunt, uncle, great aunt and uncle, AND grandparents live!
She is a lover of sweets, but don’t worry, she always brushes and flosses! No cavities for this girl.
We asked Katie her guilty pleasure:
Real Housewives. Any season. Any city.
They say with every great man is a great woman and Dr. Coulter couldn’t work without Lauren. Your comfort is her priority and she works hard to ensure that you have a positive experience in the dental chair.
Lauren is a West Knoxville native and she wouldn’t have it any other way. When she’s not at work you can find her on the lake with friends or hanging around Rocky Hill. All she needs in life is her black lab Allie, a cold beer, her family, and a chair by the water. ? Make every season summer!
We asked her, what’s one thing you would change about the world?
Her answer, make every season summer!
Why would you leave the financial sector to work in a dental office? In short, because we’re awesome! Rebecca brings a money mind to our dental office. She works hard to get the most out our your insurance benefits and ensure that you have a full understanding of your treatment plan.
Rebecca is from Strawberry Plains and graduated from East Tennessee State University. She has two dogs, Stella and Blossom, whom she loves walking at the park. Going on weekend trips and to country concerts are some of her favorite things to do. In the fall and spring you can find her hunting with her dad in the woods… or will you? Her nephew has her heart and she loves watching him grow.
We asked her, what item would you splurge on if you won the lottery?
Her answer, a beach house in Charleston!
Dr. Coulter credits his love of cooking to mayonnaise. Back in middle school, his mom would always put mayo, which he hated, on all of his school lunches. Finally, he started packing his own lunches, and he got pretty good at it!
