Dr. Mauricio CarotaD.D.S.

Dr. Mauricio Carota graduated from dental school in Brazil and later emigrated to the United States to seek more additional training. He graduated from the College of Dentistry at New York University. For several years, he practiced as a general dentist in New York, later deciding to apply to the dentistry program within the United States Air Force to seek a challenging environment and even greater specialization.

In 2000, Dr. Carota was commissioned in the Air Force and was stationed in Florida at Tyndall Air Force Base, serving as a general dentist. He applied for a specialty program in the Air Force during his tour at Tyndall-AFB, and he was accepted into a three-year residency training program in Prosthodontics at the Willford Hall Medical Center at Lackland AFB in Texas in 2002. Dr. Carota routinely completes many different hands-on training programs and continuing education classes. These provide him with the experience and knowledge necessary to address all types of cases, from conventional treatment to complex restorative operations. Now retired from the military, Dr. Carota proudly practices at Your Family Dental. He is committed to excellence in his field of expertise, and he loves helping patients attain optimal oral health, improving their quality of life in the process.
