I've had a few teeth taken out when I was younger, so I was not real thrilled about going through it again. Dr. Carrara was amazing, and the assistant was awesome as well. She was really quick with a seriously jackedup set of teeth. I'm super impressed with the way I was treated.

After a lifetime of painful dental procedures and having dentists unable to get my mouth numb, I was amazed to have a pain free crown prep with Dr. Carrara who listened to my fears and reassured me that she could finda way to give me adequate local anesthesia and she did.

Honestly this was the best dental experience I’ve ever had. I just recently switched dentists and had a cleaning with Dr. Alexa Carrara. She was super thorough and kind. She asked if I was interested in fixing a small chip onmy front tooth (I was, but I always thought it would be a large out of pocket expense) but turns out it’s technically a filling and was covered under my insurance. I was a little nervous to go seeing as I’ve had minimal dental work done but it was such an easy/pleasant process. I used ZocDoc for paperwork before I got the the office and was taken back as soon as I got in the office. Waited less than 5 min for the dentist and the filling probably took less than 5 as well. I feel like I almost offended her by my shock of how quick it was but my tooth looked so perfect-I was amazed. I had no idea how much that little chip bothered me. Overall I will for sure be reccomeding this office to everyone I know!

Dr. Carrara is professional, caring, gentle and extremely knowledgeable about all oral care issues. She is by far the best dentist I've ever encountered. I highly recommend her as well as her amazing staff. Since switching to Dr. Carrara I'vegone from dreading dental appointments to looking forward to seeing the team while knowing I'm in good hands.

I had an appointment today with Dr. Carrara and I was truly shocked by the disrespectful behavior coming from the doctor. I felt she was being very rude and was acting like I was a bother, instead of an actual patient.She literally said that my teeth look funny which shook me. Imagine going to a doctor asking for help and that’s how they describe you. She was arrogance and disrespectful beyond the limits. Not only verbally but also physical, I felt she didn’t care that I was hurt when she was examining my teeth. I have never had similar experience and I would not recommend her to anyone that I care about. If you schedule an appointment there, the only thing I can say to you is be prepare to have the worst appointment. Also be prepare to be insulted if your teeth are not 100% perfect.

Alexa is a very bright person. Her rate of speech is quick and to the point. I thought I had one bad tooth. Nope. It was two. Surprising news, but not shocking. Spent most of my time with Celeste. I describeher as patient, calm, reassuring, diligent, and thorough. Explained the process in detail.

Excellent. I have been seeing Dr. Carrara for about three years and my teeth look great and I feel very good going to her office. She explains everything she is planning to do and does the work with efficiency. The hygienistsare great and encouraging about flossing and using the water pick. Great Experience, our whole family uses Dr. Carrara's practice now.

Had the same dentist for +30 yrs, until he retired. Two reasons I stayed with him all those years. Soft touch and excellent bedside manner. Dr. Carrara beats my old dentist, hands down, on both aspects. Plus, all the staff ather office have been OUTSTANDING! Word of mouth (pun intended) advertising going out for Dr. C & staff!!

I came for my first exam as a new patient as my dentist of many years retired. I needed the initial consultation in order to establish as a patient so I can start getting my teeth cleaned Dr. Carrara actually cleanedmy teeth as part of the initial exam. That was awesome, so unexpected and so appreciated. I’m so happy I found her.

Dr. Carrara and the wonderful women in this office have completely changed my feelings about going to "The Dentist". Everyone there is personable, professional, kind and caring. Genuine personalities that are easy and enjoyable to be around.Dr. Carrara has been very realistic and understanding of some of my budgetary needs versus my dental needs and I NEVER feel pushed or pressured to have work done asap-she always lets me know when there is room to wait a month or 2. The work she has done has all been successful and I've been very pleased with that continued outcome. I have complete confidence in Dr. Carrara and her team and sincerely appreciate the wonderful care.

There was confusion because online I mistakenly made appointment for a dental consult when I actually needed a cleaning. However, Dr Carrarra cleaned my teeth herself and I got the xrays I needed so all was well. She's a wonderful dentist and I'm so glad I found her.
