Meet Dr. Carroll

Dr. J Edward Carroll


Doctor of Dental Medicine
University of Florida

I’ve been practicing dentistry since 1985. My philosophy has always been to treat everyone just as you would like to be treated. Dentistry is an ideal marriage of science and art, and I strive to provide my patients with the best possible care while maintaining a friendly and comfortable environment.

Continuing Education

I meet regularly with a study club that consists of several local general dentists and specialists. I strive to stay on the cutting edge of technology and treatment advancements. We are involved with the dental community on both a local and a national level.
