“I’ve been really excited with the results of my smile makeover. My teeth were getting darker and worn down and my lower teeth have progressively gotten more crowded and harder to brush. I noticed I was trying to keep my lower teeth covered when I smiled. Now I have a beautiful, bright smile of which I’m very proud. Th e entire McCarl Dental staff has been very supportive and helpful and the smile makeover process was easy and comfortable. Th ank you for your kind, gentle and compassionate care.”
—Anne Smith, Annapolis

“I always hated to see my teeth when I smiled for pictures because they were so yellow. Even aft er trying diff erent whiteners, I could not get them any whiter. Dr. McCarl recommended a veneer to repair a front tooth that was dark and said that my smile could be further enhanced by placing veneers on the other front teeth that showed when I smiled. I had porcelain veneers placed on six teeth and couldn’t be happier with my white smile now!”
—Cecily Duda, Millersville

“My smile became increasingly important to me as I started to speak publically, and appear on national television shows. It was not just a matter a vanity—it became a necessity for career advancement. Aft er doing the Dr. Phil Show over a dozen times, I had some of my own material pitched to diff erent networks, and was told my work was great, but my teeth and smile were not up to standards. Aft er consulting with three dentists, I choose the McCarl Dental Group to do my complete mouth restoration. Dr. McCarl’s knowledge and confi dence about the process of dental restoration was evident. It was a fair and realistic price for my veneers and crowns, and I could not be happier with my smile. My favorite compliment is, ‘Th ey look like your teeth,’ and that’s exactly what I wanted.”
— Joani Gammill, Annapolis

“Before my experience with the McCarl Dental Group, I did not like showing my teeth when I smiled. I am so glad I chose to enhance my smile through Invisalign, and I am pleased to have chosen the McCarl Dental Group for my dental needs. I now love showing my teeth when I smile, and especially love being photographed.”
— Jackie Oddoye, Germantown

It is an established practice that truly gives you the feel of an ‘old-time’ family practice, but with current, state-of-the-art technology and dental practices. Over the years, my visits to McCarl Dental Group have become more than the routine patient-dental service provider relationship—they treat me like family. Th ank you to all of the members of the McCarl Dental practice for helping me attain the smile that I always desired and making my dental care a friendly, comfortable visit.”
— Dan Dering, Gambrills

Q: Can poor oral health lead to serious illnesses?

A: Yes! Not only can the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease result in bad breath, mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, and even tooth loss, it can also escape into the bloodstream contributing to serious illnesses elsewhere in the body. Research by the American Dental Association has shown that oral infections can lead to heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, dementia, arthritis, pregnancy complications and diabetes. To minimize and even prevent gum disease and the potentially serious health complications it can cause, brush and fl oss daily and have your teeth cleaned and examined by a dental professional every six months.
