After several years of an amazing clinical experience treating a population in great need, he is now proud to call Yuma, AZ his home.

Dr. Carroll enjoys all aspects of family dentistry. He has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education in implant dentistry, root canal therapy, metal-free restorations, and orthodontics using clear aligners. Dr. Carroll continues his education at the Spear Center for Dental Excellence. Spear Education is a leader in dental education excellence. He is one of only a thousand members of the Spear Faculty Club.

Dr. Carroll has a passion for computerized CAD/CAM dentistry. He has recently implemented a cone beam computed tomography 3D imaging system into his practice.

Your Yuma dentist, Dr. Carroll has an affinity for higher education. Yes, any other dental office website says the same thing over and over. But can your dentist say that they actually traveled to the Dominican Republic to provide care for underserved patients and at the same time acquired hands-on experience on some of the most advanced dental techniques to restore a person’s mouth? Probably not. Dr. Carroll did just this when he trained under Dr. Garg of Dental Implant Seminars in January of 2016.

On top of all that, Dr. Carroll is a graduate of the Misch Implant Institute and was awarded fellowship in the International Congress of Implantologists, a world-leading group of dental implant providers.

He also loves to travel and is a fan of staying in shape through healthy diet and exercise. Your Yuma Dentist is an active member of the Yuma Rotary Club where he currently is a board member. Most recently, Dr. Carroll was awarded the 2015-2016 Yuma Rotarian of the Year. A distinct honor for the commitment he has made to better the community of Yuma, AZ.

Meet Our Staff

Natalie – Office Manager/ Dental Insurance Specialist

Natalie, Office Manager/ Dental Insurance SpecialistNatalie has been with our practice for four years and has been working in dentistry for thirteen years. She is passionate about the dental field and loves to see the look on a patient’s face when they see the final results of one of Dr. Carroll’s perfect restorations.

There is much that Natalie loves about her job in our Yuma dental office: meeting new patients and catching up with familiar faces, the “dental family” that she works with and how well we all get along, and the results of treatments that we perform.

She refuses to work for a dentist that she wouldn’t let work on her. Dr. Carroll’s thorough and gentle care with all of his patients is one of the best things about working for him, as well as his great sense of humor that puts both staff and patients at ease and makes work seem not so much like work. She loves her job, she loves dentistry, but she really loves the team that we have become. This is by far her favorite job she has ever held.

Natalie is proud that she has achieved Coronal Polishing Certification. When she’s not at work, she loves to spend quality time with her young daughter, Neah.

Shanel – Dental Hygienist

Shanel, Dental Hygienist Shanel feels that being a hygienist gives her the opportunity to help people, brighten their day, and hopefully make being in the dental chair a less stressful experience.

One thing that really makes her day is when she gets a patient that has a lot of stains on their teeth. After the stains are removed, their whole persona is changed and they’re no longer so reluctant to smile. She also enjoys seeing the positive changes to a patient’s oral health. Shanel loves that her job is so rewarding.

Shanel likes to fill her spare time with pretty much anything that has to do with the outdoors. Some activities she enjoys include hunting, fishing, hiking, four-wheeling, and horseback riding. She shoots archery at the local club every weekend and travels for tournaments. She also enjoys quilting, welding/fabrication, and physical fitness.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"
