Dr. Paul McCarthy, D.M.D

Meet Dr. McCarthy

Location: Greenwich

What is your area of interest in Dentistry: Cosmetic Pain Free Dentistry with an interest in Biomimetics

Where did you grow up and what brought you here: I grew up on the beaches of Rhode Island, went to Boston for Dental School and then came to New York City for residency in 2016. I then spent 4.5 years living in the 5 boroughs. I recently moved up north last year to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

What do you love most about this area: The fresh air, beautiful verandas and hikes. There is so much to see being so close to the Adirondacks.

What is your philosophy of care: To provide pain free care, turn issues into corrections, and share my knowledge of dentistry as much as possible.

What is a quote you strive to live by: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care” – Teddy Roosevelt

Why did you become a dentist: My Great Uncle is a Prosthodontist and my Cousin is a Periodontist, so I was lucky enough to have their insight and be exposed to Dentistry at an early age. I originally was considering becoming an MD/PhD but changed career paths after I realized how much technical knowledge of materials and hands on artistry goes into Dentistry, two aspects that greatly interest me.

What would you do for a living if you weren’t a dentist: Musician. I love music, listening, playing, writing (although I’m not very good), it is a fun hobby to have! I grew up playing Trombone, Trumpet, Baritone Horn, Piano and Guitar and was All State and All New England Baritone Horn throughout high school. I still play around on my electric keyboard from time to time.

What are you most passionate about professionally: Perfection is something I always strive for. It’s a never-ending journey. The adventure of learning and keeping up with all the latest developments in Dentistry keeps life interesting.

What is your favorite activity outside of work: Golfing and Sailing

Where can we most likely find you on the weekends: During the summer - on the golf course or traveling to see friends and family. During the winter – searching for indoor driving ranges

How do you like your coffee or tea: Cold Brew Coffee any day!

What is your favorite ice cream flavor: Cookies and Cream

What movie can you watch over and over again: Any by Denis Villeneuve, but especially Dune 2021
