Dr. Mauricio Carota, DDS

Dr. Carota graduated from dental school in Brazil, and after emigrating to the United States to seek advanced training, graduated from New York University College of Dentistry. He practiced as a general dentist in New York, and eventually decided to apply to the United States Air Force dentistry program to seek more challenges and greater advanced specialization.

Dr. Carota was commissioned in the Air Force in 2000, and was stationed at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida, where he served as a general dentist. During his tour at Tyndall-AFB, he applied for a specialty program in the Air Force, and in 2002 was accepted into a three-year residency training program in Prosthodontics at the Willford Hall Medical Center at Lackland AFB in Texas.

Dr. Carota regularly attends a variety of continuing education classes and hands-on training programs, which provide him with the knowledge and experience necessary to address all types of conventional dentistry and complex restorative cases.

Now retired from the military. Dr. Carota is the proud owner of Prime Dental Design. He is committed to excellence in his field of expertise, and he enjoys helping patients to achieve optimal dental health, which he knows will improve their life experience.
