in Sandy, Utah |
On Friday night, my daughter fell and knocked her front teeth back into her mouth. I called my dentist who said to go to the emergency room. I called Dr. Carter and he came in right away and numbed her teeth then moved the teeth back. He saved her front teeth in a very frightening situation and he didn't charge me anything because my family had been coming there for their braces for years. We will be forever grateful. Thank you Dr Carter for being such a great, caring Orthodontist.
Great! Glad i chose this clinic
