Why He Became an Orthodontist
Dr. Carlotto decided to enter the dental field because it was the perfect combination of his ability to connect with people on a personal level and his enduring love of science. Once he was finished with dental school, the decision to specialize in orthodontics was a fairly easy one too. He really enjoyed the treatment planning and critical thinking aspects of the field. Every person and smile is unique, and the most important part of the process is customizing the best plan possible for their one-of-a-kind circumstances from the very beginning!
Where He Studied Dentistry & Orthodontics
After he graduated from Tufts University with his undergraduate degree, Dr. Carlotto attended The Harvard School of Dental Medicine to pursue his dental doctorate. Following the completion of his DMD, he received his Master of Science and Certificate in Orthodontics at The Ohio State University. Today, he pursues continuing education whenever possible to keep his skills sharp. He is also an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO).
What He Likes to Do Outside of the Orthodontic Office
When he has free time away from the orthodontic office, Dr. Carlotto stays busy with plenty of hobbies. He roots for all of Boston’s sports teams, tries to cook just like his Italian grandmother (despite regularly failing), consumes plenty of podcasts and documentaries about history (particularly World War II), and runs to balance out all of the delicious ice cream he eats. He also takes regular trips to Block Island and enjoys quizzing his coworkers about interesting trivia during their team meetings.
Here’s a fun fact about Dr. Carlotto: While he was attending Harvard, he got to star as one of the leads of the “Second Year Show.” This is a satirical play that the dental and medical students put on together every year. His role involved getting to sing a remixed version of Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl, which was named “Beantown Girl.”
