"One of my professors at dental school said, 'Your greatest challenge as a dentist will be to apply everything you learn to giving the best possible dental care to every person you treat.' Thirty years later, I'm still guided by that thought."A powerful education stretches the mind with new ideas to improve your quality of life."Continuing education is a powerful tool which helps me give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care." - Carl F. Ern, DDS Dr. Ern opened Putnam Dental in 1997. He has been practicing for over 35 years. He has more than 1,000 hours of advanced continuing education in the areas of porcelain veneers, endodontics, CEREC® restorations, implant, and oral surgery. He believes that continuing education is essential to providing his patients with the best care possible. Dr. Ern is an active member of his community, and enjoys giving back by serving on mission trips to treat patients in need overseas. He is a New York City marathon runner who also enjoys gardening and photography. Dr. Ern is married with two sons and serves as Parish Council President.

The entire practice is top notch. I've been coming here for YEARS. They treat patients like family. I don't understand how anyone would want to go anywhere else. They are honest, trustworthy, professional and friendly. A++++

Easily twice as expensive as his competitors. 2200 for a root canal not including crown. Had same procedure at another dentist for 900. But the worst is the upselling - from the second you walk in you're bombarded with sales talk, bleach this, straighten that etc. it all made for a really uninviting atmosphere. The place is a factory and all that friendliness is fake and meant to make you buy more. Shop around and go elsewhere. Trust me.
