About Our Doctor

Fred W. Carpenter, D.D.S.

fred_carpenter_2_5.jpgDr. Fred W. Carpenter is from the Twin Cities area. He studied at the University of Minnesota Institute of Technology as an engineering student before enrolling in the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. After dental school, he completed a General Practice Residency program in Burlington, Vermont, which involved more extensive training in oral surgery, periodontics and endodontics (he also may have improved his skiing technique). He then practiced general dentistry for three years before returning to the University of Minnesota to complete his two-year orthodontic specialty certification in 1982. Since that time, he has limited his practice to orthodontics (braces) only.
