Kara Registered Dental Hygienist
Kara joined our team at Maestro Dental Wellness in November 2005. Kara prides herself on her compassion for and her understanding of our patients’ need for comfort and information. One of her biggest accomplishments comes in allaying the fears patients so often come to our practice with.
“When our patients come to enjoy their experiences at our practice, actually feeling calm and relaxed, I know we have made great strides to improve their oral and general health.”
“Modern dentistry and cleanings do not need to be feared.”
Kara graduated from Hudson Valley community college and was awarded the Marilyn LaBrie faculty award for her clinical skills, a selective award granted to only one student per graduating class. Kara has furthered her skills by becoming certified in the administration of local anesthesia and nitrous oxide analgesia so that she may make patient visits even more comfortable. Kara keeps current with modern treatment methods and technological advancements by attending numerous continuing education courses with her team. Her most recent education coursework comes in the field of overall wellness assessment and the negative effect of inflammation on the body and its systems. She is inspired to help every patient achieve overall wellness.
Kara came to our practice having worn may hats in the practice of dentistry. Before becoming a dental hygienist she worked as an office administrator with a focus on dental insurance and then as a clinical dental assistant.
Kara enjoys spending time with her husband, two children, and grandson. In her free time you’re likely to find her with her family, camping at Lake George.
