Our History

Our Patient Care Standards

 The legacy of dental excellence that our practice upholds is a commitment to provide exceptional care and compassion during our patients' visit.

We understand that each patient deserves the best and most compassionate treatment experience. Our Andover dental practice takes the time to listen to our patients about their desires and needs before beginning comprehensive dental care. They explain all aspects of the procedures before, during, and after the treatment to make their experience exceptional.

Additionally, as we are aware that our patients are very tech-savvy, we have provided dental videos that provide additional explanations for some of the services that we regularly provide to Andover.

Our team at Francis R. McCarthy, DMD is proud that our compassionate, caring, and professional attitude puts our patients at ease while they are visiting our office.
