Meet The Dentists

Precision Dental Care is a special type of office in many ways. One is that the owners are the husband and wife team of Dr. Gary Carter and Dr. Michelle Afkari. They began their dental careers in Oregon where they graduated from the University of Oregon Health Sciences School of Dentistry. Dr. Carter was invited to teach Dental Anatomy and assist students in the graduate clinics after his graduation from OHSU. He received the Stephen P. Peglow Award given by the students and faculty to the graduate with the qualities that "epitomizes the ideals of the dental profession".

Dr. Afkari attended Portland State University in Portland, Oregon prior to her dental school enrollment to complete her undergrad courses. On taking the North East Regional Dental Examination, Dr. Afkari earned a perfect 100% on her practical clinical exam.

Both Dr. Afkari and Dr. Carter worked as dentist in Oregon prior to their travel to the East Coast and their Connecticut home.  They moved to the East Coast to be near family living in the tri state area. Both doctors are trained in all aspects of dentistry and offer speciality services to their patients at Precision Dental Care. These services include Cosmetic, Periodontal, Restorative, Endodontic, Oral Surgery, Prosthodontic, Implant, Preventative, and Pediatric Care. Patients are given a full understanding of their proposed treatment as well as their other options, the potential risks and a chance to ask questions about all dental treatment prescribed here.

Dr. Carter and Dr. Afkari regularly attend continuing education courses to maintain their skill and knowledge of the very best and highest levels of dental care.

Their daughter Hannah is interested in dentistry and you may meet her during the summer at the office. She is known for her bubbly personality!
