Dr. Carmen is a skilled clinician in the fields of cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry. Since his graduation from the University of Oklahoma College Of Dentistry, Dr. Carmen has continued to expand his dental knowledge and skills by completing thousands of hours of continuing education at fine institutions across the nation. His post doctoral studies include an intensive year long residency in General Practice at Great Lakes Hospital in which Dr. Carmen was able to study and practice under specialists in every aspect of dentistry. Additionally, Dr. Carmen has completed the LSU Cosmetic Dentistry Continuum studying under pioneers in the field of cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Carmen’s accomplishments in this field have helped him to achieve member status in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Carmen believes that through pursuing the very best in postdoctoral education, he can bring the best dentistry possible to his patients in Oklahoma. Additionally, he has studied at the world renowned Dawson Academy, Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, and completed the Misch International Implant Institute. Dr. Carmen’s vast post doctoral transcript resulted in his recognition of Fellowship Status with the Academy of General Dentistry. He soon went on to achieve Mastership in the AGD, one of the few added distinctions a general dentist can attain.
The AGD is the only professional association dedicated to exclusively serving the interests and needs of the general dentist. To earn Mastership in the AGD, dentists must take a minimum of 1,100 hours of educational courses in various disciplines and pass a rigorous exam. Of the thousands of members of the AGD, very few have achieved Mastership status. Even more impressive, is the fact that Dr. Carmen achieved the honor after only 8 years of practice and his Mastership a few short years later. Additionally, Dr. Carmen is a fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantology and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. Dr. Carmen is a member of the following professional organizations: American Dental Association; Oklahoma Dental Association; Cleveland County Dental Society; Spear Education, Red Earth Chapter; Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation; International Congress of Oral Implantologists; Academy of General Dentistry and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists. Additionally, Dr. Carmen currently serves on the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry.
Although many patients seek out Dr. Carmen due to his impressive resume, they often find his pleasant and calming chairside manner to be his best trait. Patients, both young and old, benefit from his open, communicative nature and his ability to thoroughly explain treatment plans that deliver optimal dental health and confident, attractive smiles.
Dr. Carmen and his wife Samantha live in Norman with their three children, Taylor, Brooks, and Reece.
