Karla, R.D.H.

 

         I graduated from Ada-Borup High School in 1993 and North Dakota State College of Science in 1997 with an Associate of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene. I am certified in administering local anesthesia and nitrous oxide. I have had the privilege of practicing with Dr. Joy since 1997. I love being a dental hygienist and all of the many rewards that come with serving patients and helping them achieve total health, including great oral health. I really enjoy the relationships that come with the continued care of patients.

         Dr. Joy's Dental Clinic is a very family friendly practice with emphasis on care from age two to ninety-two. We strive to accommodate your families growing needs and work with your schedule to achieve optimal oral health. We have the latest in technologies and staying abreast of the highest standards in patient care. I attend many continuing education courses to stay current in the most recent advances in research. Orthodontics has also been very rewarding as patients see their smiles change.

         I have been an active member of the North Dakota Dental Hygienists' Association since graduation. I have held several state offices including secretary, president elect, president, past president, and Delegate for the American Dental Hygienists' Association. I was awarded NDDHA 2007 Outstanding Dental Hygienist.

         I look forward to helping you keep your smile shining!
