Meet Dr. Carson

Dr. Philip C. Carson graduated with honors with a BA from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 1978 and went on to get his D.D.S. from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis 1984. That same year, he joined his father, Dr. Charles A. Carson, in the practice of general dentistry, and continued to work with him for five years. Before his death from pancreatic cancer, Dr. Charles A Carson impressed upon his son the importance of keeping current with dental technology. As a result, our dentist participates in continued education to stay at the forefront of dental advances.

  • Mastership Course in General Dentistry at the University of Alabama, Birmingham 1993-1997.
