Dr. Pamela Karkut
“Dentistry provides the ability to blend art and science together in a truly rewarding way. No two smiles are the same and I love the ability to customize treatment plans for each patient. My goal is to build healthy smiles that make my patients feel comfortable and proud, and to create lifelong relationships with my patients. To me, my practice is my second home and I strive to make my patients feel at ease from the moment they arrive. In fact, the biggest compliment a patient can give is to feel so relaxed that they fall asleep in my chair.”
