Dr. Karen Bennett was born and raised in South Florida. She received her dental hygiene degree and worked for ten years as a hygienist. With encouragement from other dentists, she decided to continue her education. The brochure from the University of Washington Dental School was too enticing---Mount Rainier in the background. She applied, was accepted and the rest is history. "I enjoy the challenge of helping patients overcome their dental fears through gentle dental care. The reward of seeing a patient happy with a painless visit or enjoying their bright new smile gives me great satisfaction. The Northwest is truly a great place to live. I am glad to have fallen for that UofW brochure."
