Salvatore J. CarCara, DMD • OrthOdOntics
Dr. Salvatore Carcara’s patients all receive the same promise—he is committed to caring for their smile. That’s not
surprising for an art enthusiast who says he wanted to be an orthodontist since childhood, driven by his passion to
care for people and make them smile. “The marriage of art, science and orthodontics allows me to express my artistic
nature,” he says. “I evaluate a patient’s teeth, jaw and smile to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses
facial balance and overall dental health. Everyone’s smile is unique and deserves individualized attention.”
As chairman of continuing education for the New Jersey Association of Orthodontists, Dr. Carcara remains well
informed about advanced techniques in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. He has pursued continued profi-
ciency and excellence in his own career and achieved certification from the American Board of Orthodontics.
Dr. Carcara is also a firm believer in patient education. “If patients understand and are involved in the customization of
their treatment, we can create beautiful smiles in the shortest possible time and most comfortable manner,” he says.
One of the first questions Dr. Carcara asks all new patients is the reason for their visit. “Very often parents respond
that their children never smile, or dislike their smile, which is why it is so rewarding to see my patients confident and
smiling after brace removal,” he says. “To be able to affect their lives in such a positive way is truly a blessing.”
