Her interest in dentistry began early and rather abruptly, when she was informed she needed all four primary molars extracted. Her dentist was wise enough to reward her bravery with three dollars after each appointment. So began her path into the profession.
Dr. Karr completed a Bachelor’s of Science and a Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Western University, followed by an Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Connecticut.
Dr. Karr loves dentistry not only for the opportunity to help her patients, but also because it lets her apply a keen artistic eye and natural creativity on a daily basis. Dentistry is her way to make a difference in people’s lives through a personalized hands-on approach.
She has regularly participated in dental outreach programs in places like Northern Ontario, Connecticut and Jamaica, and regularly elevates her skills through continuing education.
After-hours, Dr. Karr works out to songs from her favourite musicals, like Defying Gravity from “Wicked”. She will quite happily sing Disney songs to her child patients – who have unanimously declared her “Best Dentist Ever.”
