Christina R. Carter, DMD

Specialty: Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics

Dr. Christina Carter provides comprehensive pediatric dental care in her brand new, state-of-the-art practice just 10 minutes away from her former office in Summit, where she has been practicing for over a decade. A pediatric dentist, orthodontist and certified holistic health coach, Dr. Carter focuses on a child’s overall health as well as building a beautiful, healthy smile. She enjoys treating special needs patients, especially those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and lectures nationally and internationally on the subject.  

“I love empowering my patients with confidence, and teaching how easy it is to visit the pediatric dentist,” she says. “We have fun giving our patients healthy foundations for bright, beautiful futures.”

Providing Early Orthodontic Intervention

Dr. Carter is an expert in her field. She received her DMD from UMDNJ before completing residencies in both pediatric dentistry and orthodontics at NYU. She is one of fewer than 100 dentists across the country who hold both specialty degrees. Dr. Carter completed a fellowship at NYU’s Langone Medical Center—Institute for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery in cleft, craniofacial and surgical orthodontics, where she remains a member of their teams. 

“I promote prevention—from habits to eliminate cavities to identifying complicated orthodontic issues early,” she says. “It’s comprehensive care from teething to college graduation.”

Treating Patients as Part of the Family

President of the Northeastern Society of Orthodontists, she is a regular guest on Sirius “Doctor Radio,” has appeared on Inside Edition, NBC and WPIX news, and has been published in Scholastic and Kiwi magazines. 

“I love when children are excited to see me,” she says. “I consider myself more than just their dentist; they become part of our family.” Dr. Carter sometimes brings Callie, her certified therapy dog, to put patients at ease.
