Dr. Cara Schroeder

As a general dentist I have had the privilege of devoting my 25-year career to working solely with children and teens. I love the pure joy of working with young people and being able to positively impact their oral health and self-esteem.

Prior to earning my Doctorate in Dental Surgery from Ohio State University I earned my Master’s Degree in Counseling from Boston University focusing on the needs of children, anxiety and behavior challenges. This advanced education has greatly enhanced the gift I strive to give to all my patients, a happy trip to the dentist!

I have been married to my husband Cordell for 38 years. We have been blessed with 4 children and 4 grandchildren. As I often tell my nervous, younger patients “I’m really nice. I am a grandma!”
