Professional statement

Born and raised in Puerto Rico but currently living in Manhattan, Dr. Caraballo is an expert in the fields of dental aesthetics and orthodontics. He combines empathy and dedication when caring for each patient. When he was younger he received a lot of dental work and thus became very familiar with dentistry. He saw his old dentist as a role model and this led him to pursue a career in this field. Dr. Caraballo finds delight in seeing the improvements a dentist can produce and the instant gratification on a patient’s face. He loves seeing patient’s reactions to cosmetic work and the boost they get in their self-esteem. Outside of the Office: Our dentist in White Plains has a variety of hobbies including traveling, hiking, playing pool, and exploring New York City. Hero: Gandhi, because anything can be solved without violence. Best Day of Your Life: The day of my graduation from dental school, because I finally achieved a life-long dream.

The entire staff was just trying to sell me services. Dr Joel took less 5 minutes to examine my mouth and left - I thought he would come back and explain more but that was the last I saw of him.The cleaning person then continued trying to sell me stuff and in the end gave me an obnoxious cost for all the services they think I need. I consulted another dentist to confirm my doubt that Dr. Joel’s clinic was trying to make money

It was great. Going to the dentist is not the most comfortable for me but they made me feel at ease. I was pleased and ready to go back for follow ups

This was my first time visiting this office and this dentist; I really enjoyed my visit. The office was clean and comforting, with essential oils and really great receptionists. I didn't have long to wait and then my actual appointment wasa breeze. I will be going back again, thankful that I found a great practice and a great new dentist!

All who assisted me were patient and listened to all my concerns. They were very aware of my anxiety for dentists as well as any pain I may have felt. They have a dedicated person who helps talk you through theinsurance as well, helping you decide the best course of action. Everyone was wonderful. Highly recommend.

This place is awesome. I was seen very quickly. Dr. Caraballo was excellent at explaining everything and making sure I made educated decisions. The girls in front office were so nice and worked with my schedule to make this process easy for me.
