Dr. Carolyn Travers



Dr. Travers grew up in Oak Park, IL. After receiving her undergraduate degree from Illinois Wesleyan University, Dr. Travers graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2004. She subsequently completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. She returned to the Chicago area to practice dentistry for the next 7 years, including working alongside her brother who is also a dentist. During that time, she served as President of the Chicago Academy of General Dentistry and as an AGD delegate representing the state of Illinois. In her career, Dr. Travers has always valued providing care for individuals in underserved areas and has participated in dental mission trips to Haiti and Ecuador, as well as volunteering at the local homeless shelter. 

Dr. Travers and her husband moved to Lincoln in 2012 and she has proudly been a part of Oceans Dental since 2013. She appreciates the “small-town feel” of Lincoln and truly enjoys building relationships with patients and providing dental care for the entire family. Dr. Travers takes her time listening to each patient’s individual treatment goals to provide gentle, high quality, and personalized dental care. She is an active member of the American Dental Association, Nebraska Dental Association and Academy of General Dentistry. She continues to grow professionally and stays current with the latest dental advancements by regularly attending Continuing Education seminars. 

In her free time, Dr. Travers enjoys spending time with her husband, chocolate lab, and 4 young children. She has a passion for traveling, exploring the outdoors, reading, playing golf, and attending UNL athletic events. Dr. Travers and her family are members of Christ Lincoln Church.
