A native of Grinnell, Dr. Carney Loucks graduated from Grinnell College before heading to Iowa City to obtain his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. He then completed a residency in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics at Iowa, earning a Certificate in Orthodontics and a Master of Science (MS) degree.
Dr. Loucks and his wife Laura moved to Newton in 1983 where they raised their family (Jennifer, Ryan, and Spencer) and enjoyed being active members of the community. Dr. Loucks practiced orthodontics in Newton and Grinnell for 37 years before retiring in 2021 to spend more time traveling and enjoying his family, including five grandchildren (William, Aven, Rowan, Samuel, and Vaida).
Dr. Loucks and Laura now split their time between Newton and Fort Myers, Florida, and if you’re lucky, you might see him make a guest appearance at the office to say “Hello!”
