Meet Dr. Carolyn Decoteau

“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.”

Dear patients,

I am thrilled to be serving the Nashua area and surrounding communities alongside Dr. Jay Decoteau at Decoteau Orthodontics. As an Orthodontist, I am passionate about developing close relationships with my patients and their families and customizing treatment plans to address all smile needs. Providing only the highest quality of orthodontic care in a friendly, comfortable environment is the standard I set for all of my patients. It is my privilege and pleasure to be treating you and your families and I look forward to welcoming you into our practice!

Education and Experience

I am a Board Certified specialist in Orthodontics, and completed my D.M.D degree and Orthodontic residency at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. At Tufts, I graduated in the top of my class and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honors Society. While at Tufts, I was active in research and was a recipient of the Dean’s Research Scholarship each year. My research involved the study of severe tooth decay and its effect on pediatric growth and development patterns. My professional organizations and certifications include Diplomate status on the American Board of Orthodontics, as well as active membership in the American Association of Orthodontists, Massachusetts Dental Society, and Northeast Society of Orthodontists.

Family and Community

I truly love the New England culture and communities, having grown up and completing all of my education here as well. Cape Cod is my favorite place to be in the summer with my husband, Corey, and our extended families. We love to travel and stay active, all while spending time with our family and friends.

I’m honored to have the opportunity to get to know you as we work together to create your beautiful smile!



It’s an honor to announce that Carolyn was voted by Boston Magazine as one of Boston’s Top Dentists 2017!

With more than 600 dentists surveyed, finalists were then reviewed by an advisory board of select dentists, and chosen for their specialty, credentials, and the high number of votes received.

Congratulations, Carolyn!
