Dr. Carr was always very good with our son, friendly and easy to talk to. The staff was always polite and helpful. We LOVE the convenience that the brace bus provides.
Thank you!, The brace bus is a great service for working parents, and it is free to our patients.

I appreciate the availability of later appointments since we live out of the area and want to minimize the time the kids are out of school. I also appreciate the flexibility in dealing with sports schedules.

Dr. Carr's office really worked with me financially, and showed a lot of respect towards every decision I made. The team is polite and efficient, and always shows compassion. I could not be more pleased with my overall experience.

Dr. Carr and his staff are top notch!! We are very pleased with the results of Sure Smile ??
Thank you, Suresmile is a fantastic 3D digital tool box that allows me to: improve your bite, design your smile and advance your treatment in ways that are not possible with traditional orthodontic treatment. We have been doing it for over four years and the results are impressive.
West Lafayette, IN |
The staff is very welcoming and thorough with their explanations of what needs to be done. They are very patient and kind. My son felt very comfortable with all of them. That helped with him being less nervous when he had to deal with a difficult procedure. Dr. Carr was very thorough when I asked him numerous questions about my son's dental work. I would highly recommend this office and have already done so many times!

Dr. Carr and his staff were awesome.
West Lafayette, IN |
My oldest boys had braces before with another doctor. The initial appointment cleared the air as to what the boys need and the cost associated. When we come to the office everyone is friendly and efficient.
in West Lafayette, IN |
I want to thank Dr. Carr and his great team for getting me a great smile. Dr. Carr and his team are very professional and friendly. I never had to wait when I showed up in an appointment (on time) because they're always on time (or early if I get there earlier). Dr. Carr and his team provide all the care they can give to their patients so we wouldn't have to worry about anything. I love my experience with Dr. Carr and his team.

I feel very comfortable in the office. The staff is very friendly and I want to return. I can tell Dr. Carr "knows his stuff" and I trust him with my teeth.
West Lafayette, IN |
Very friendly staff, always accommodating and on time.
Lafayette, IN |
My daughter feels comfortable enough to leave me in the waiting room while she has her procedures and check ups. The staff is friendly, professional, and helpful, and I feel good about the investment we've made in our daughter's health!
in Lafayette, IN |
The level of care is excellent. The saying you get what you pay for is confirmed in this situation. Your staff is always so polite. I find it refreshing to see an office full of women get along and handle themselves so comfortably with one another. Sara is always a joy to be around!!! And today I met a lady who probably handled my impressions. It says a lot about Dr Carr's character that 40+ years later she is still in the same spot doing the same thing!
in Lafayette, IN |
Dr. Carr's staff is wonderful through-out the entire office! Pam made our experience stress free over the last 12 months from helping us with insurance to working around our schedules with appointments. My daughter's braces were off slightly earlier than the estimated time frame. We are happy with our decision to use Dr. Carr.
Lafayette, IN |
I recommend Dr.Carr! Dr.Carr and his staff are upbeat and positive and make your visit as smooth as they can. My child loves going in for her checkups and talking to the staff!
in Lafayette, IN |
We would definitely recommend Dr. Carr and his wonderful staff to others because their service is: 1. High-quality 2. Personal 3. Very friendly and supportive
Thank you for your kind words. My staff and I work hard not just for technical excellence, but also for a great patient experience!
in West Lafayette, IN |
I have sent both my kids to Dr. Carr for braces and had excellent results. Both went through his Sure Smile system and were done in 14-15 months.
Suresmile is a fantastic technology that allows us to improve the quality of the result beyond traditional treatment and shorten the treatment time!

The flow within the office is very punctual. The staff is kind and courteous. All aspects of tooth care and care of the braces are covered, and that care is expected from the patients. Appointments are easy to schedule, and all paperwork is provided at the necessary times. Patient care is extremely positive.
We feel very welcome when we come into the office and everything has been explained and we know what to expect.

Friendly stuff
in Lafayette, IN |
Dr. Carr's office is very organized! Will had a great experience with his braces and they were removed several months early because we used the Sure Smile system. Thank you to Dr. Carr and all of the staff who work there.
West Lafayette, IN |
Well, I am sure that Dr Carr is a great orthodontist; however, I do have to say we will never find out because he refused to honor the agreement that our insurance indicated that they made with him. Not totally sure if it is his refusing to honor his commitment on the contracted rate or Cignas incompetence, but either way, I think it is disgraceful! Our son has a medical need, we have insurance that he is a network provider for and we cannot get the contracted rate!
Lafayette, In |
The staff in Dr. Carr's office are very nice and welcoming. Dr Carr is great, honest and to the point. I love the atmosphere of the office.
in West Lafayette, IN |
Dr Carr and his entire staff were very professional, very prompt and very informative at each appointment. My sons teeth turned out better than we could have ever imagined. Dr Carr came very highly recommended to us by our dentist and I would definitely recommend Dr Carr to friends and family.
Friendly, professional, quality and quick service
