    Dr. Carter and his staff have helped my daughter so much! Her teeth are already showing so much improvement! My daughter says “It is annoying to have braces but they make your teeth so pretty especially when you get them from Dr. Carter!” (Her words, not mine!!) She just loves Dr. Carter and his staff!
