Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
When she isn’t busy practicing dentistry, Dr. McCarthy’s next biggest passion is dog rescue! She has fostered dozens of dogs who need a home after being rescued, and she even has two rescued standard poodles at home. She also really enjoys traveling extensively throughout the world and has completed many volunteer dental missions in other countries like Vietnam and Dominican Republic. Singing is a big hobby, too – she knows the words to tons of songs and often sings along while working!
