We all want our kids to love being here as much as we do”. She is definitely committed to making sure they do – whether it involves singing a song or dancing the latest dance craze with them – she makes sure they have a reason to smile. “I love to sing and dance. Getting the children to play along is the best part – you can just watch their apprehension melt away as they get comfortable enough to engage with you.”

Registered Dental Hygienist/ Clinical coordinator
“What I love most about dentistry is the relationships that you build with the patients and their families. The opportunity to be creative and connect with each child so that he/she feels comfortable makes it easier to teach them about their oral health. We have fun while we are learning and we feel good about what we are teaching them.”
Kari has served in the dental profession since 1997. She joined our practice in 2007, and brought with her a tremendous amount of experience in achieving and maintaining optimal oral health.
