Products & Services

Dental Lasers

This particular laser is intended to be used in oral soft tissue surgery to include: apthous ulcers, biopsy, fibroma removal, frenectomy, herpetic lesions, hemostasis, soft tissue crown lengthening and tissue retraction. Due to the precision and effectiveness of dental lasers, anesthesia is typically kept to a minimum. Depending on the procedure there is little to no bleeding, minimal need for sutures, little or no scar formation, bacterial reduction and a decreased post-operative discomfort.


Implants, in general, have revolutionized the way we practice dentistry. In the unfortunate event a person loses a tooth we now have a way to replace just the one tooth, or many teeth. Essentially we keep a one tooth problem a one tooth problem. Implants have been shown to be up to 98%. They allow us to keep bone where it should be, keep facial features consistent and develop the most esthetically pleasing outcome possible.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a sleep related breathing problem that is relatively common and potentially has serious consequences, such as heart disease, strokes and excessive daytime sleepiness. The condition occurs when the muscles that control the tongue and soft palate relax. The relaxation allows the airway to narrow which in turn can lead to snoring and breathing difficulties. The airway can then collapse, become blocked, and cause obstructed breathing.

Customer Testimonials

Thank you Dr. Carothers!! I am so grateful for the excellent work you did on my number thirteen!! I enjoyed interacting with your amazing staff and y'all made the experience so very informative and (most importantly) comfortable!! Thank you SO much!!

I've been coming here for years always happy with the honest work Dr carothers does and Randi the hygienist does an awesome job and is very friendly

Dr. Corey Carothers has been our family dentist for many years and I continue to be amazed by his compassion and integrity. My daughter has severe dental phobia but his soft manner and the gentle care of his hygienists help calm her nerves. If you are looking for a dentist that is straight forward and honest regarding your treatment plan and genuinely cares about your overall health and wellbeing then look no further. Even after moving to Austin we continue to drive here for our dental care. Patti and all the rest of the friendly and excellent staff are an additional bonus. Who knew that going to the dentist could be a pleasant experience!

I have been seeing Dr. Carothers for almost 10 years. His practice has done a wonderful job, not only for me, but also both of my children. We are able to have our cleanings all at the same time with different hygienists. My son, in particular, was extremely afraid and nervous at first. Now he is excited to go to his checkup. We have never had any issue with billing, appointments, unneeded procedures. Every interaction has been handled professionally and the staff is simply wonderful. The office is immaculate and beautiful. I am grateful to have found a place and a group of wonderful people I trust so much.

I drive all the way from round rock to see this dentist. They are friendly, the office is beautiful, the treatment plans are on the conservative side and I've had no issues with work failing. Coming from a dentist who over treated and overcharged, these guys have restored my trust. My previous dentist recommended a root canal. Dr Carothers tested my nerve, determined it was healthy and was able to treat the tooth with a filling. I'm so thankful I found this practice!

I recently started coming to this dental office. I have been seeing Dr. Carothers, and am more than happy about the service I've received. I was pretty pleased with the last few dentist offices I've been to, but it wasn't until I started coming here that I realized they were just "ok".

Both of the Dr Carothers together take care of the oral health of my entire family.

I first went to see Dr Carothers when I chipped a crown. It turns out that I needed two new crowns since both of my front teeth were crowns and never were very aesthetically pleasing. This was my third set of crowns as I have had crowns since I was in JR high school, and They've always looked bad. So I didn't expect anything better or worse.

It turns out that Dr Carothers made a temporary that looked better than any of the of my others to date! Then the pennant crown arrived and Dr Carothers sent them back because he wasn't satisfied with the appearance. They remade them and I have to say, they're better than my real teeth were!

Additionally, his wife (also Dr Carothers) takes such great care with our two little girls that they think it is some sort of treat to go to the dentist.

I can't recommend the Carothers enough!
