Dr. Christina R. Carter is a pediatric dentist and orthodontist as well as a certified health coach. She and her team focus on children’s overall health in addition to building beautiful healthy smiles.

Dr. Carter is uniquely qualified and enjoys treating special needs patients—especially autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and those with craniofacial differences—and lectures nationally and internationally on the subject. She frequently appears on Sirius Doctor Radio and in magazines.

“I love teaching my patients how easy it is to visit the pediatric dentist, and seeing their confidence grow,” she says.

Past president of the Northeastern Society of Orthodontists, Dr. Carter received her DMD from UMDNJ and completed residencies in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics at NYU. She completed a fellowship in cleft, craniofacial and surgical orthodontics at NYU Langone Medical Center’s Institute for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. She’s one of fewer than 150 dentists across the country who hold both specialty degrees.

"Dr. Carter has a very special gift in dealing with children, particularly those who are special needs or just scared of dentists. She also is incredibly smart and talented, going beyond the typical dentist. She’s highly trained for dealing with atypical dental needs (such as for those cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies). I also like that it’s one-stop shopping for dental and orthodontia, as she's also a highly skilled orthodontist. Beside all of the above, she's just a kind and caring person, and that carries though to her entire office and the staff she works with. " ~Carol, West Orange

"My son is extremely scared of the doctor. That being said, when we go to see Dr. Carter, she always makes my son feel calm and we have no issues with his teeth being checked. The entire office is so friendly and so good with small children. I’m thrilled we found their office! " ~Aubrey, Morris Plains

"Dr. Carter is extremely kind and caring. My daughter had an extreme fear of the dentist and Dr. Carter was the best person we could have brought her to. She takes the time needed to make her patients feel at ease. She explained everything that was going to be done to my daughter before she did it. And, to add to her appeal, she has a therapy dog to help ease tensions as well." Amy, Berkeley Heights

"Dr. Carter has provided excellent care for my anxious child throughout her ongoing orthodontic treatment." Virginia, Denville
