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

Reviews & Testimonials

"The staff is most professional and extremely helpful. I was very impressed with my new dentist Dr Paul M. He’s excellent!! Looking forward to continued services for many years to come!"



"Dr. Paul and Rosa are very conscientious. They checked frequently during my procedure to see how I was doing."



"Excellent experience. This office is new to us because we recently moved to this area. I had to have a tooth readied for a permanent cap, so novocaine and grinding necessary and through it all I felt nothing: no pain or discomfort. I will no longer feel trepidation going to the dentist. Staff are professional, patient and knowledgeable. The atmosphere in the office is welcoming, and everyone was helpful."



"Very good for the first time to the facility. Very pleasant staff."



"Greenwich Family Dentistry has a caring staff. My hygienist was very thorough. She asked if I were having any issues with my teeth and we discussed how to resolve the issue. I am very pleased with the service and the congeniality of the staff."
