Dr. Billy Laun was born and raised on a farm just outside of Pawnee City, Nebraska. He graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Nebraska’s College of Dentistry and then completed his surgical training at the University of Buffalo where he was exposed to the full scope of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
Dr. Laun’s upbringing in a small community provided him a firm foundation of hospitality and neighborly goodwill. He fell in love with the Southern Illinois area due to the numerous recreation and outdoor opportunities and the community’s determination to grow, improve, and innovate. After taking over Dr. Gustave’s Oral Surgery practice in the summer of 2019, Dr. Laun introduced Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Carbondale to the area and is proud to call Southern Illinois home.
His clinical interests include wisdom tooth removal, dental implants, bone grafting, pathology, laser surgery to manage periodontal disease and failing implants, orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery), cosmetic facial surgery, and management of TMJ pain. He is on staff at Heartland Regional Medical Center and Chester Memorial Hospital.
In his free time, Dr. Laun enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, kayaking, and playing chess.
