Years of Experience
Dr. Ann Carnes received her DDS from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX in 1987. She continues a long-standing Carnes tradition of providing excellent dental care. She began working with her dad, Paul Carnes, DMD, in the dental office when she was just 13 years old. Even though she's been around for a while, Dr. Ann takes the time to do continuing education every year with the dental staff. Excellence is our dedication.
For instance, Dr. Carnes has received advanced training with Ultradent as part of her efforts to stay on top of dental technology. We also value the input of others so we arei a member of the American Dental Association, the Louisville Dental Society, and the Elizabethtown Dental Society Club.
Dr. Ann is married to Mike Douglas, and together they have two children: Jordan Douglas and Nathan Douglas, and one grandbaby, Alexandra Jean Hocker. Dr. Ann is a member of Grace Heartland Church in Elizabethtown, where she enjoys working with the four year-old class as well as a girls’ high school class. In her spare time, Dr. Ann enjoys gardening, being outdoors, and reading, although her favorite pastime is traveling with her family and friends.
Dr. Penny Crain, an exceptional general dentist, and has been practicing at Carnes Family Dental since May 12, 2014. Dr. Penny was born and raised in Eastern Kentucky and she is a graduate from the University Of Kentucky School Of Dentistry. She is married to surgeon, Dr. David Crain and lives in Elizabethtown. They have two children, Daniel and Katherine.
Penny has been practicing as a general dentist since 1995. She has practiced in Lexington and Bardstown and has worked as an interim dentist in several offices in Hardin County. Like me, Dr. Penny prefers “old fashioned”, personal relationships.

My hygienist is the best! I’ve been going here for about 28 years and watched this practice grow and change as needed. Dr. Ann is great and I have always been satisfied.
I love Dr. Ann and her staff!! Everyone is so welcoming and friendly and helpful. They make me feel so comfortable and I always get the best care.
I love to visit my dentist because I am always treated as family, not as a patient. . I am very grateful to her and her staff and will forever be indebted to them.
I have had multiple dental procedures done here. They are always very thorough in explaining and assisting me with my dental health. Excellent crew!!
