Topeka Dentistry
Carrie Peterson, DDS & Ben Rutherford, DDS

Dr. Carrie B Peterson, DDS

Owner, Dentist

Although Carrie was born in Texas, she was raised in Southwest, KS. She has lived in Lawrence since 2000 and graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelors's in Human Biology and University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry with a DDS degree.

She has been practicing dentistry for ten years and has been with us for ten incredible years. Carrie loves helping patients become more confident with an improved smile. 

Outside of the office, Carrie loves spending time with her family. She and her husband have three busy children; their activities and schools keep them very busy!

Carrie does enjoy running, cooking, and reading when she has a few moments of free time. She also enjoys volunteer work—donating time to Kansas Mission of Mercy, a free, two-day dental clinic across the state each year, and serving on the planning board when the event was held in Topeka.

Dr. Peterson donates her time to KS Dental Lifeline, Donated Dental Services, and to her children's schools as well.

The staff at East Topeka Dental are the best!

I used to stress about going to the dentist. No more. The staff at East Topeka Dental are the best! They are great to patients and are very good about making sure I know everything they are doing in my mouth and ensuring I don't have any pain...my favorite part.
