Karen Jo, DDS, MS

Meet Dr. Jo

Dr. JoDr. Karen Jo grew up in Maryland and graduated with a degree in Finance from the University of Maryland College Park in 2011. After her undergraduate degree, she was awarded the opportunity to train at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda Maryland through the Postbac Cancer Research Training Award program in the office of Physical Sciences Oncology Centers. During this time, she was fortunate to also shadow and assist in dental offices and discovered her interest in dentistry.

Dr. Jo attended dental school at the University of Maryland Baltimore School of Dentistry and earned her DDS in the summer of 2018. She then completed a one-year General Practice Residency at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 2018-2019, and then earned her Master’s of Science and Certificate in Periodontics from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry from 2019-2022.

Dr. Jo’s compassionate and fun-loving personality brings comfort and trust to the patients in her care. She offers a full range of periodontal and surgical procedures, including esthetic hard and soft tissue procedures, extractions, bone grafting, implant therapy, sedation, and the treatment of periodontal disease.

In her free time, Dr. Jo enjoys reading, pilates, cooking, and spending time with her family. Her fiancé, Daniel, recently finished serving in the US Navy Dental Corps and is currently in an orthodontics residency at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Karen and Daniel love to travel together, try new restaurants in all different cities, and just ran their first half-marathon in Nashville, Tennessee in March!
