Kari is originally from Dyersburg and moved to Chattanooga in May of 2016. She attended the University of Tennessee at Martin, where she obtained the prerequisite coursework for dental hygiene. She continued her education at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. While at the UTHSC, she graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene.
Kari has been practicing as a dental hygienist since 2007. When not working, she loves spending time with her husband Matt and her miniature schnauzer, Gracey. Her other hobbies include reading, playing in a trivia league, baking, and watching college basketball (let’s go, Duke!). She’s very excited to now be a Chattanoogan and looks forward to meeting all the patients very soon.
