Descriptive Qualities: Empathetic; Compassionate; "A" Type; Forever Student; Traveler; Situational Humorist; Dog Lover


I introduce myself as "Julie".  I have worked in multiple dental offices prior to building Care Endodontics.  Care and positive dentistry are my branding message.   I have 6 root canals and acknowledge how my patients feel in the dental setting.  Being an endodontist, allows interaction with all cultures and professionals.  I learn from my patients.  I believe interacting with patients builds confidence and a better treatment experience.


I'm in a relationship with Lincoln, my childhood sweetheart. We reconnected after 20 years on Facebook in 2009. We are dog lovers, I have two English Bulldogs and Lincoln a Viszla.  I love personal growth and have embraced many interests: Travel, Art, Reading, Photography and attempted Cake decorating.  I attempt painting-Modern Kindergarten Abstract. I mastered Candy Crush Saga-very sad.  My latest project is genealogy and have traced my family back to 1675.  I commit to a project and explore every detail-like my career.  I love a sense of humor(I'm writing this) and obviously adding website designer greater to my growing list of accomplishments

I'm trying to get into the habit of more frequently using the old chestnut "I'd rather have a root canal." Because frankly, after having one at Carrara Endodontics, there are many things the procedure is preferable to—a train full of Cubs fans, for instance, or most stand-up comedy. In fact I've had teeth cleanings that hurt more. Dr. Julianne Carrara's office is on the seventh floor of a Lincoln Park high-rise; as I waited for the drilling to start I read People magazine (Taylor Swift was featured, like a specter—the first candidate for my "I'd rather" list?) and looked at the skyline view. In consultation, Carrara said solemnly, "If you tell me it hurts, I'll believe you," and in fact it didn't hurt at all (Best use of immodest amounts of anesthetic, if you ask me). Carrara and her assistant were deft, graceful, and lightning-fast. I wanted to ask if they do more routine things like fillings—or, hell, can I get a new driver's license here? Do they dry-clean?—but unfortunately, prices are somewhat superlative too. I'd definitely rather have a root canal than have to pay for another root canal. —Sam Worley
