I highly recommend Dr. Carr. The amount of time he spent on my tooth is second to none and would have cost thousands of dollars anywhere else. He saved my tooth when others would have pulled it. When I told him a certain step would cost too much cause my insurance didn't cover it, he said no problem and didn't charge me. After the intial appointments, he had me come back once a month to refill the tooth for a year until the bone grew back that supported my tooth.


Dear Dr. Carr and Staff, I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you. My visit to the office was great and it is so refreshing to work with such nice people. I truly appreciate the time you are taking with my tooth. So far so good!


Dr. Carr, Thank you so much for taking the time on a Saturday to work on my front tooth. You made it possible to be out in public without scaring anyone.


I had a problem where an instrument was left in my gum after a surgery. I went  to a number of different endodontists and nobody was able to help. Dr. Carr was  the only person who was able to help me and did so with the utmost care and  concern. I feel so lucky to have found someone who is both brilliant at what he  does and conducts himself with integrity and compassion. Everybody in the office  was a pleasure to work with.
