DR. ALEXANDRA CARROLL
Dr. Alexandra Carroll was born in the beautiful mountainscape of Utah. Her family then took on the courageous act known as the “reverse Oregon trail” packing the proverbial carriage and fording rivers to finally settle in the outback of Connecticut. She decided to stay local for college and pursued both her undergraduate degree and Dental degree at University of Connecticut. Desiring a stronger foundation, she opted for advanced training, getting an extra year of experience through a General Practice Residency at Prisma Health in Columbia, SC. Since then, Dr. Carroll has practiced as an independent practitioner in SC while working towards obtaining her North Carolina licensing. Make sure you welcome her to our great city and greet her with that well-known Charlotte hospitality when you schedule with her!
For Dr. Carroll, the dream of becoming a dentist was built on the foundation that ‘A smile is the prettiest thing you can wear.’ She loves that dentistry provides her the opportunity to gain mutual trust with patients in a one-on-one setting to improve their oral health and the aesthetics of their smile. She particularly loves the opportunity to work with a patient and help transition them from dental pain and suffering to enjoying the health and
psychological benefits of a beautiful smile, because we all deserve to be beautiful!
In her free time, Dr. Carroll enjoys all the outdoor activities the Whitewater Center has to offer – perhaps that’s where her love of Charlotte started. She is an avid reader and a
member of several book clubs, and an amateur baker working tirelessly to develop the world’s next Cronut. She hopes to someday spend more time travelling.
Dr. Carroll is an active member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and the North Carolina Dental Association.
DR. NATALIE MARTINEZ-ROGERS
Founder & Dentist
Dr. Natalie Rogers is the owner of Stellar Dental. After relocating to Charlotte early in 2014, she proudly opened her first office in the University area. Since then she and her family have come to learn the city of Charlotte and fell in love with the NoDa area, eventually settling in neighboring Villa Heights. She quickly realized the need for dental care in the community and couldn't resist such a great commute! In October 2018, that dream finally became a reality when Stellar Dental of NODA opened its doors!
Dr. Rogers is a first generation American, born to Cuban immigrants in New Jersey. She was always passionate about science and biology, but uncertain about where that would take her. In her final year of high school, she was invited by her own dentist to assist in her practice. This was her introduction to the world of dentistry and so a new passion began.
She achieved her undergraduate degree at Cornell University in upstate New York and enrolled in the Harvard School of Dental Medicine immediately after, graduating in 2008. During her time in dental school she was honored with the Massachusetts Health Access Award, which placed her within a community health center for two years following graduation. This opportunity allowed her to treat a range of patients, many of whom had never seen a dentist. Simultaneously during her time there and the five years to follow, Dr. Rogers practiced in a private practice setting in both Massachusetts and Charlotte.
Dr. Rogers met her husband while they were both graduate students in Boston; they were married in 2004. They have an 9 year old son and a 6 year old daughter. Their family is completed by their four dogs. During her free time, Dr. Rogers enjoys playing with her two children, reading books and spending as much time as possible outdoors: running, biking and hiking.
As a provider, Dr. Rogers' focus is on whole family dentistry, treating patients of all ages. It is her honor to provide the highest quality, most ethical and comprehensive care possible, and to get to know her patients as friends. She very much looks forward to meeting you, and seeing you around the neighborhood!"

Originally from Rocky Mount, NC, Dajia attended Edudent School of Dental Assisting in Greensboro and began her dream career of dental assisting. As a child she loved going to the dentist as a way to collect free stickers and lollipops. Since those early days, she always aspired to a career in dentistry. Dajia loves coming to work each morning to help patients feel at ease in the dental chair, but laments that modern dentists have turned away from the "shady practice" of giving sugar-filled lolipops to their patients!
Dajia is firm believer that Charlotte has a lot, and she spends her free time enjoying all of it - from sight seeing to trying new restaurants! She also hosts her own YouTube channel where she provides movie commentaries. If you need a movie recommendation, don't be afraid to ask!
Summer was born and raised in Dallas (the good one, not the one in that state with the big star). After graduating high school in 2019, Summer attended Gaston College and earned an Associates degree in Arts with an emphasis on communications. This is when Summer found her love for helping others feel confident. Summer graduated Lake Norman Dental Assisting School in 2022 and joined Stellar Dental immediately after. She now puts that communication degree to full use by ensuring that our hygiene patients are comfortable and care-free during their appointment.
Outside of work, Summer enjoys reading, spending time with friends, kayaking and murder mystery podcasts. She hopes to one day hear a podcast about a murder that happened while friends were reading books on a kayake...right after a dental appointment!
