“For me, dentistry is about building relationships with my patients. There are a lot of good, competent dentists in Yakima, but what excites me about dentistry day after day are the people I meet and the difference I can make in their lives. I really care about my patients and try to provide the very best dental care I can. I think that’s why so many people come back year after year. We’ve had some exciting advancements in the field of dentistry and I’m proud to bring that quality of care to my patients.”
Dr Carbery began his dental career in the Dental Corps of the U.S. Navy. After completing his military service, he opened his dental practice in Yakima, where he has practiced ever since.
