Name of Practice:
St. Clair Dental
DDS, University of Buffalo
Why She Was Nominated
One of the few female dentists in her town, just southwest of Dallas, Dr. Karl emphasizes patient education, comfort and high-quality treatment. Her practice employs top-of-the-line technology to provide some of Texas’s best dental care.
Growing up in a downtrodden part of New York state, Dr. Karl didn’t go to the dentist very often. Instead, practitioners would come to the public schools to treat children. As a high-school student, Dr. Karl decided to learn to fix teeth herself.
