Hi! I'm Dr. Karen, and my passion is working with kids! I am a board certified pediatric dental specialist and a diplomate, and I practice in a unique way. My practice is designed so that I can do what I love most: interacting with my kid patients one on one. When a child needs treatment that child gets an hour appointment to his/herself and they get my full attention. We do fun things like paint nails, read stories, and just try to have fun. Mom and Dad are also welcome in my office, and together we'll make what can be a scary experience a good one! And let's not forget prizes…I give lots of prizes as well. My staff and I love to take the time to explain everything to our patients and parents, and answer any and all questions. I practice this way because it gives me the time to spend with the children.
Outside the office, I love baking, reading, traveling, watching crazy TV shows, running, doing Pilates, and doting on my children, Ali and Johnny. We do a lot of things together as a family!
