Hello, my name is Erin, and I provide our patients with oral hygiene care and periodontal disease prevention. I’ve worked with Dr. Carroll since 2005 and appreciate his dedication to his patients' well-being. I feel my most important duty is educating patients about how to keep their mouths healthy because prevention is key. I am a native of Bartow and currently live there with my husband, Chris. I enjoy cooking, reading, exercising and having fun with friends and family.
