Dr. Carpenter embraces the latest techniques and technological advancements in dentistry to bring the most advanced dentistry available to his patients. Dr. Carpenter spends countless hours in continuing education annually and is committed to bringing the highest level of care possible to his patients.

Dr. Carpenter is one of a few general dentists in North Georgia that practices dentistry with a surgical microscope.
