Prior to Carroll Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, I was a practicing Dental Assistant for 8 years in general dentistry and some specialty work. I received my dental assisting license from the Maryland State Board after completion of the D.A.T.S. program and then my Certified Dental Assisting license a year following.
