Meet Carson Ferris-Zeolla, DMD
Dr. Carson Ferris-Zeolla is an experienced family dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry. She has a caring, compassionate and conscientious approach, which makes her a favorite with patients.
Dr. Ferris has known she wanted to be a dentist since she was 12, when she needed braces to correct her smile. Seeing the progress made during two years of treatment developed her own fascination with dentistry and when the braces were removed, the boost to her confidence was enough to confirm that she wanted to spend her life helping others to feel just as positive about their smile.
After graduating from high school in Holley, near Rochester, Western New York, Dr. Ferris completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Buffalo. She then moved to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where she achieved her DMD alongside a master’s degree in education. She graduated top in her class and received the national Board Achievement Award, as well as an award in Pharmacology and Therapeutics. Finally, she completed her post-graduate training at Morristown Memorial Hospital, where she met Dr. Uryniak and the foundations of their practice began.
Dr. Ferris is a proud member of the American Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Association of Women Dentists and the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. She is certified through the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to administer Botox® for aesthetics and TMJ/oral facial pain.

As well as offering general dentistry for the whole family, Dr. Ferris specializes in cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics. Her childhood experience influences her care for patients and her focus is on helping them to achieve the results they want, to enable them to feel confident in their smile and their looks.
