Welcome Dr. Timothy Lawhorn DDS, a wonderful addition to our dental team.

Dr. Timothy Lawhorn

Dr. Lawhorn is proud to say that he was born and raised at the end of a dirt road in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. His mother worked long and hard to see that he had an opportunity to get an education. Completing the formal part of his education at Loma Linda University in southern California exposed Dr. Lawhorn to the pleasures of low humidity, but California couldn't compete with the northern Rocky
Mountains when he could finally choose where to live and raise a family of his own. At 25 years of age, on receiving his Doctorate in Dental Surgery, he carefully selected Missoula, Montana to become his home and the place where his daughters Jessica and Kathryn would be born and come of age.


Meet the Team

MEET:KATHY ULLMAN

REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST

Hi there! I am a dental hygienist on Dr. Leslie Hayes’s dental team.  I have had the privilege to work with Dr. Hayes for almost 23 years.  It is our goal to provide every patient quality dental work in a clean comfortable setting.  Our team members truly care for every patient and want to provide each person with the best dental experience possible.

I grew up in Big Timber, MT and then attended hygiene school in Sheridan, WY, going on to the University of Wyoming where I attained a BS in Dental Hygiene with an emphasis on public health.  After graduating in 1988, I worked in Wyoming and Colorado and spent summers working for the State of Colorado Migrant Program. I then moved back home to Montana to continue my career in dental hygiene.

I am married and have two children.  Our family is very involved in most sporting events. We love to spend time outdoors and spend summers camping in our favorite Montana spots.

MEET:Delilah Carden

OFFICE MANAGER

I first started working in Dentistry in 2015 in Jackson Wyoming where I fell in love with mountains and dentistry.  Over the years I have had so many wonderful opportunities to experience dentistry changing peoples lives in the best ways. I feel very grateful to have been able to move from one great dental office to another. Dr Hayes has built a wonderful practice here with an amazing, knowledgeable, caring staff that I am happy to be a part of.

When I am not working I am an ultra-marathon trail runner and spend as much time as possible outside running. I also enjoy camping, hiking, biking, cooking and spending time with my cat.
