Our Staff

Dr. Karen Kramarczyk


Dr. Karen Kramarczyk is an Iowan native, both her undergrad and doctorate are from the University of Iowa, one of the best dental schools in the nation!! She started her dental career at the age of 17 when she enlisted in the Iowa National Guard dental corps. She trained and graduated from the Army’s dental assisting and dental labrotory techniqan programs. After dental school she came to the valley and found our home in Maricopa in 2004. “We love the small down, deep history, and strong sense of community.”

She began practicing as an associate dental in a family practice in Gilbert AZ part-time and part-time at the dental clinic at Gomper’s center for the disabled. Dr. Karen has a strong passion for providing quality dentistry to the underserved. In 2006 she was recruited to help build the special care department at the School of Dentistry in Mesa. As hard as it was to leave the staff and the clients at Gompers, she couldn’t resist the opportunity to help future dentists learn the incredible sense of satisfaction and accomplishment that their skills can make in the lives of people with disabilities.

I have served as adjunct faculty with the dental school for the last two years and as much as I have taught the students, I have learned an incredible amount from the faculty, specialists and students.

In July of 2007, (Tired of the commute on 347) Dr Karen decided to leave the family practice in Gilbert and start her own practice here in Maricopa. She bought state of the art equipment, hired the best staff in the world and hasn’t looked back.” I am so happy to have the opportunity to practice where I live, where my kids go to school and where I can become not just another dentist but your partner in life long dental health.”

We are so grateful to our staff, without them we are just bricks and morter.
