To Dr. Patrick Carroll, dentistry is more than just a job. His energy, dedication to patient care, and extensive continued education prove his commitment to dentistry and to his patients. His enthusiasm makes dentistry fun, an attitude which spills over into his staff and patients.
Dr. Carroll knows that a dentist is only as good as the extent of their training, so he devotes his time to studying new developments in dental technology. Even the most modern techniques don’t escape Dr. Carroll’s notice as he participates in study clubs dedicated to current dental research. A self-proclaimed continuing education junkie, over the past six years he has completed more than twice the state’s requirement for continued learning. As the only current LVI graduate in Kentucky, Dr. Carroll offers unique neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry knowledge to his family of patients.
His other academic accomplishments include a BA from Bellarmine University, a Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Louisville, and a general practice residency certificate from the University of Kentucky. After completing his residency, Dr. Carroll returned to Louisville where he entered private practice and also joined the faculty at the University of Louisville Dental School. At the university, Dr. Carroll taught in the General Practice Residency post-doctoral program and co-founded the University of Louisville Advanced General Dentistry Program.
Dr. Carroll enjoys sports dentistry and is the team dentist for the Louisville Bats and Bellarmine University sports teams. When Louisville had ice hockey teams, Dr. Carroll performed their dentistry, too. In his time away from the office, Dr. Carroll is a high school and competitive soccer referee. He is a past president of the Kentucky Soccer Officials Association. He is also an avid jogger and reader. Wife Vikki and sons Sean, Colin, and Conor appreciate Dr. Carroll’s dedication to his work, and their support and love are a vital part of his success.
