DR. CHRIS CARTER

After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), Dr. Chris Carter went on to dental school and residency at Oregon Health and Science University. His experience at the University of California – Irvine, Plastic Surgery Department allows him to craft smiles that perfectly complement each patient’s unique facial features. As a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, American Association of Orthodontists, Orange County Dental Society, California Dental Association, and American Dental Association, Dr. Carter is fully committed to his craft and dedicated to expanding his skills.

Dr. Carter practiced general dentistry for five years before specializing in orthodontics, giving him a very unique perspective that allows him to analyze not only your smile but also your entire mouth as a whole. An orthodontist can do more than simply give you a great smile — they can affect the entire shape of the lower face. Only by focusing on all of these factors can one create the best possible smile, profile, and aesthetics. Dr. Carter is proud to be able to create attractive facial proportions along with beautiful smiles for all of his patients. When he’s not enhancing facial and smile aesthetics at South OC, frequently lectures other dentists and physicians on this topic. In his spare time, Dr. Carter loves mountain biking, golf, and spending time with his family.
