Learn Who We Are

  • Thomas Carr, D.D.S. & JoAnne Carr, D.D.S.

    Drs. Thomas and JoAnne Carr are 1983 graduates of Loyola University School of Dentistry. They met in dental school where they were seated alphabetically next to one another in their classes. Dr. Tom convinced Dr. JoAnne, an Illinois native, that California was the place to be, and so after graduation, they relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where they have lived ever since.

  • Robert Yee, D.D.S.

    Dr. Robert Yee has been living in the Bay Area since he was 5. He is a graduate of Monta Vista High School in Cupertino and obtained his B.S. in Biology from UC San Diego in 2007 and his D.D.S. from the University of Southern California in 2011.  Before taking over the practice from Drs. Thomas and JoAnne Carr, Dr. Yee was actually a patient of the practice for 30 years!

    Dr. Yee has always had a passion for teaching from an early age. While living and practicing in the Bay Area since graduation, Dr. Yee was a part-time Clinical Assistant Professor for USC and would travel down to Central and Southern California about 4 times a year to teach dental students how to work on children through USC’s Dental Mobile Clinic. After 5 years of wonderful memories, Dr. Yee wanted to teach a little closer to home and became an Instructor of Clinical Oral Health at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, where he taught students in all aspects of dentistry.  He continued with UOP for 2.5 years before deciding to focus more on private practice.  Dr. Yee hopes to be able to go back into teaching again in the future.

    Dr. Yee is a proud member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the Santa Clara Dental Society.

    In his free time, Dr. Yee likes to spend time with his family and friends. Having competed nationally in tennis since he was 8, Dr. Yee still maintains an active lifestyle by competing and playing tennis at least 3-4 times a week while also mixing in a little coaching. Dr. Yee is an avid reader and enjoys a good book any time of the day or night. He loves music and has played the piano from a young age. He is also known to randomly start singing in the office to whatever song might be playing (especially a Disney tune)!

    Dr. Yee looks forward to providing the best dental care possible to all his patients for many years to come.


What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The fact that we and members of our family have been patients of the the Drs Carr since 1981 speaks for itself with regard to our ongoing satisfaction with their individual care, patient-friendly attitudes, and ever-timely methods of practice! (And their supporting staff is absolutely outstanding as well!).

    You could not be happier than as patients of the Doctors Carr, and their team of associates!"
    Dr Art and Margaret Brown
  • "I’m quite picky when it comes to dentists and having been with about 10 dentists in my life, I would rank Drs. Carr (and their staff) a clear #1. I have been a happy patient for 11 years now and have recommended this practice to my friends and colleagues."
  • "It’s a joy to visit Dr. Carr’s office for my check-ups/hygiene, with friendly expert care. Even serious dental work is comfortable and nearly painless. Highly recommended!"
  • "I used to be stressed when I went to the dentist, but I no longer struggle with that since I became a patient of Dr. Carr’s. Over the course of 6 years, I have had a variety of dental procedures done by Dr. Carr and his staff, from regular cleanings to crowns to bridges. I am extremely pleased that every procedure was completed with excellence, using the latest technology. Dr. Carr is meticulous. When my bridge (in the most visible part of my smile) needed replacing, it turned out better than I imagined possible. The office is warm and inviting. Equal to their technical expertise is the genuine care and concern shown by every member of the staff from receptionist to hygienists to Dr. Assistant to Drs. Tom and JoAnne Carr. I highly recommend Drs. Carr and their staff!"
  • "Dr. Tom and Dr. JoAnne Carr have been my dentist and my family’s dentists for over twelve years. I’ve been more than thrilled with our care. I refer friends and colleagues and they are more than grateful for introducing them to the Carr’s. I came to the practice after a traumatic appointment with another dentist. Once I found Dr. Carr and he fixed my tooth I’ve never looked back. Visiting the dentist is actually a relaxing and enjoyable time."
