Best dentist in the region. I've been going here for years and don't ever plan on changing. Dr. Carpenter is great and always takes the time to ensure the best care and has an excellent staff all around him. They have the knowledge and equipment to best serve your every need and they offer to text appointment reminders approximately a week before. Overall, Carpenter Dental makes your visit to the dentist as painless as possible!
