I had quite a bit of dental work done here and the work was great. I had a few natrual looking crowns made for me and put on my teeth and they look and feel great. I also had one hour whitening done here and my teeth came out looking really pretty and many shades whiter.
"Authorities allege that in November and December 2010, the 64-year-old McCarty used e-mail accounts registered under this name to upload nearly 400 images of young boys engaged in sexual activity."

Pros: great staff, no long waits , affordable
Cons: there are none
Dr. McCarty and his staff provide top notch service to their patients. I've been a patient for several years now, and they make going to the dentist almost enjoyable. They provide complimentary water and other drinks to their clients, and the cleaning chairs even have their own personal TVs and massage capabilities. The staff is very knowledgeable and they always do a thorough job cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend making an appointment today!
Pros: Great location, super friendly staff and great service
Cons: Doesn't accept insurance (but will file claims for you)
Cr. McCarty and his staff create a wonderful atmosphere of competence, caring, and friendship. My wife has been a patient of theirs for several years. She approaches each visit with tranquility and returns with a polished smile. Dr. McCarty has helped her maintain the good health of her teeth and he's promised that with her and his consistent care, she will "grow old with those teeth."
Pros: Thorough dental care in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
Cons: Does not accept insurance, but files claim for you.
I've been a patient for over twenty years and have been very satisfied! His office does not have a big turnaround which I feel says alot about his practice. It's nice to see the same friendly faces which makes for a comfortable atmosphere. I've experienced long wait times at other doctor visits and appreciate that I am able to go in and out of my appointments with Dr. McCarty. I also have never felt rushed through my appointment as he and his staff are patient and attentive to questions or concerns.
Dr. McCarty and his staff always provide great care and are always professional. Top rate!
Pros: Great care from wonderful people
I have been a patient of Dr. McCarty's for almost 25 years and have been so impressed with the continued professionalism, state-of-the-art equipment, procedures and personal interest in my needs. The staff is superb and friendly, my insurance claims seamless! I moved about an hour away from Austin in 1994 and, after trying dentists in my small town and surrounding area, happily drive to Dr. McCarty for dental care. I am also delighted that he has been honored for his work by Texas Monthly Magazine as one of the top dentists in Texas!
Pros: Most caring dentist and staff in Austin
I've been a patient of Dr. McCarty's for almost twelve years. My husband goes as well. We have had nothing but postive experiences with this office/dentist. I have had to have quite a bit of work done and it has been done right and with great comfort. I've never been prodded into getting any service that I did not need. I recently asked for and had my teeth whitened. It turned out great. The hygenist that did it was very concerned with my being happy and discussed what to do to keep the teeth their whitest.
I would reccomend this office to anyone who needs a kind caring dentist and a great office staff.
Dr. McCarty is an "out of network" provider for our insurance. They submit our claim forms for us on the same day of our visit so we get reimbursed rather quickly.
Thanks guys for being an outstanding office.
Pros: Variety of services
My wife and I, and our youngest son, have been patients of Dr. McCarty since we moved to Austin in late 2005. We are notified of our pending appointments several times, by mail, by text message, and by e-mail. I'm in on time, which I like. I also find that Dr. McCarty is not trying to "sell" me what I don't need in contrast to a dentist I once had. It's an extremely well run office with nice people and a very competent dentist. I don't recall how we found Dr. McCarty, probably by referral, but I'm glad we did.
Pros: Very organized office
This office is very comfortable and efficient. I am new to Austin and I am glad I have found a good dental team to go to. Everything about my dental health was explained in a clear and polite way and I was given advice on how to improve my already good oral hygiene. This is certainly not the usual sterile, cold medical office most have come to expect. Their are flat screen TV's above every seat to entertain you while the technician does his/her work. I look forward to my next visit.
I have been going to this dentist for 2 years. I made an appointment for a teeth cleaning and they scheduled me fo 8 am the very nexty day so I was thrilled to have such fast turnaround. I have a 10 week old who tends to be fussy in the mornings as all babies do. I called 30 minutes prior to my appointment to cancel becuase she was sick only to be notified that I would be charged $100 for not cancelling within 48 hours. Well that would have been impossible since I didnt even have the appointment 48 hours before. Plus no one had notified me when I made the appointment of the fee. She said the fee is clearly posted on the website! I work 50 hours a week and tend to my child when I get home. Like I ever considered visiting or reading their website with the plethora of free time I have. I explained my situation and hoped she could sympahtize with a new mother. But the rude receptionist said, "Well maybe next time you shouldnt schedule a morning appointment knowing you have an infant. I cannot waive the fee. I'll take your credit card when you are ready." HOW UNBELIEVABLE! Apparently its my fault I had the child. Thanks for the empathy lady! Needless to say I paid the $100 fee. 2 days later I found a new dentist and had my records transfered.
Cons: Rude, Thoughtless, Do not set proper expectations
My family and I have been patients of Dr. McCarty for over 20 years. I was not at all surprised to see that he was recently nominated by his dental peers as one of the best dentists in Texas both in 2006 and 2007 as reported by the independent survey in Texas Monthly magazine. In addition, for 2007 he was also named by his peers as one of the best cosmetic dentists in Texas. Way to go Dr. Mike
Pros: Wonderful staff and beautiful office with TV's over each dental chair
I have avoided dentists for years because of a bad experience as a child. I was referred to Dr. McCarty by a colleague. Dentistry must have changed! Dr. McCarty and his staff really listened to my concerns and provided the most comfortable, caring dentistry I could have ever imagined. Kudos to the whole dental team. If you want the best in dentistry, then I would recommend Dr. McCarty to anyone without hesitation.
Pros: Very gentle and thorough
I have been to several dentists over my lifetime, but Dr. McCarty and his staff went way past my expectations. He made me feel like a person and not just another set of teeth. He and his staff actually listened to my concerns. Dr. McCarty actually asked me what I wanted for my long term dental needs. Every other dentist I've been to told me what "they" wanted me to have whether I wanted it or not. He was professional, but very gentle and caring. I could go on but Dr. McCarty and his staff are a rare find in today's medical world. I would highly recommend him and his staff.
Pros: understanding, compassionate, gentle
Dr. McCarty is absoultely the best dentist I have ever been to. I continue to get great compliments on my new smile. In my business, a beautiful smile
is the first impression my clients receive. Also, I can't sign off without giving "thumbs up" to Dr. McCarty's office team, especially Nelda his assistant. She is truly a gift sent from heaven!
Pros: Gentle, An Artist, Caring
All I have to say is I hate insurance! But Dr. McCarty and his front office staff made it easy and painless. They process all of the paperwork and even mailed in the claims for me. Connie and Sylvia new my insurance policy and could answer all questions without me having to do a thing. Not only that, but when I did have an insurance question they did not know, they called during my appointment time and took care of it. WOW!
Pros: Friendly, Fast, Comfortable
I have been going to Dr. McCarty for years, and he and his staff are great. The invisible braces are perfect for me and working in an occupation where I am constantly in meetings and giving presentations.
Dr. McCarty offers a one hour whitening process that actually works. I have had stained teeth for years that no over the counter whitening kits could get rid of. But now, after just one hour of sitting in Dr. Mike's office, my teeth are white.
Pros: Easy to Work With
I went in to visit Dr. Mike with a mouth I was afraid to smile with because my teeth were so bad. After Dr. Mike and his staff created a new smile for me, I feel like I am smiling all of the time. My teeth are now straight, they are shaped right, and the color is perfect. Not only was Dr. Mike great and easy to understand, but his staff made me feel welcomed and comfortable.
Pros: Friendly, Affordable, Talented
