Dr. Gordon J. McCarthy, D.D.S.
Gordon J. McCarthy, D.D.S. received his Bachelor of Science degree from Ohio University in 1999 and attended the Ohio State College of Dentistry where he received his degree of Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2004. A native of Washington County, Ohio, Dr. McCarthy always planned to return to the Mid-Ohio Valley to open his dental practice. While in dental school he took a special interest in oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry and dental implants because he knew that his native area was especially underserved in these areas.
Since starting his professional career Dr. McCarthy has completed extensive training and numerous hours of continuing education in cosmetic dentistry, implant placement surgery and restoration, as well as advanced bone and soft tissue grafting. He has continued to refine his skills and advance his knowledge to offer patients more treatment options. Through this commitment, Dr. McCarthy has established a practice where most dental procedures can be completed in the office without the inconvenience and delay of a referral. He uses the latest and most predicable restorative, implant and grafting procedures known in dentistry today.
Dr. McCarthy is an advocate of technology. He has invested in the latest, most cutting-edge, computer assisted tools and processes available in dentistry today. Dr. McCarthy is nationally known as one of the early adopters of cone beam volume tomography to create 3D X-rays, a technology quickly becoming the standard of care for oral surgery and implant placement. His presentations on cone beam imaging to area dentists and physicians has improved healthcare throughout the mid-Ohio valley.
Dr. McCarthy routinely uses this technology for his patients to offer “never before seen” diagnosis and treatment planning. Because he believes cone beam imaging is so useful to other medical professionals, he has also created Heads-Up 3D Cone Beam Imaging, an independent center for surrounding dental and medical professionals to use in their patient care.
Dr. McCarthy is a member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association and the Muskingum Valley Dental Association. He lives in Marietta, Ohio with his wife and 3 children, He enjoys spending time with his family and “wrenching” on classic cars.
