Meet Dr. Carter

Chris Carter, D.M.D., M.S.

Dr. Chris Carter practiced general dentistry for five years before specializing in orthodontics, giving him a very unique perspective that allows him to analyze not only your smile, but your entire mouth. An orthodontist can do more than simply give you a great smile; they can affect the shape of the lower face. Only by focusing on all these factors can you create the best possible smile, profile and esthetics. Dr. Carter is proud to be able to create attractive facial proportions along with beautiful smiles. This is the most rewarding part of his job, and he lectures other dentists and physicians on this topic. In his spare time, Dr. Carter loves mountain biking, golf and spending time with his family.
