Karen graduated with a bachelor's degree in dentistry in 2016, in Valencia, Venezuela. Later that same year she decided to move to Ireland to improve her English, and pursue her lifelong ambition to work in dentistry. Her experience of moving country led to a reinvention of sorts and Karen decided to focus on Dental Technology, which she now considers one of the most beautiful and interesting careers, as it allows her to combine her passion for dentistry with her interest in computers and technology.
In January 2017 she started working in a dental clinic, where she developed a particular interest in the dental technology field. Karen has 4 years of experience working in a dental laboratory, especially in CAD/CAM design and finishing all types of restoration.
One of her favourite things about the job is being able to understand what the dentist and patient wants, working together and including the patient in the process to give them the smile they are looking for and achieve the perfect results.
In her spare time, Karen enjoys doing outdoor activities, going to the gym, and spending time with her family.
