Karen Reynolds, RDH

 

 

Karen began her career in dental hygiene in 1970 after graduating from, what was then, Palm Beach Junior College. At that time, there were only three institutions in Florida that offered a dental hygiene prigram, and the program at Palm Beach was rated number one.

Karen chose hygiene as a career mostly because her mother was a hygienist and suggested that she may enjoy it as well. Her mother definitely knew best, because Karen has enjoyed her career for over 40 years!

Karen has worked for a variety of dentists all over the state of Florida, from Ft Lauderdale to Live Oak. She even spent a year and a half working in Basel, Switzerland! Each doctor taught her many things, which she carries with her to help her patients achieve their best oral health.

 The offices in which she has practiced are as follows: 

Laurel Manor Dental 2008-2014

The Villages, Fl.

  Dr. Arthur Acker, General Practicioner

Venice, Fl 2002-2008

  Dr. Richard Rand, General Practicioner

Punta Garda, Fl 2003-2008

  Drs. Gender, Forester, & Davis, General

Englewood, Fl. 1998-2003

  Dr. Herbert Mantooth, General

  Drs. Berger & McCauley, Periodontist

Ft. Lauderdale, Fl 1973-1975

 Drs. Kopp, Holzach & Cahen, General

Basel, Switzerland 1972-1974

 Karen has been married for forty years to Henry, who is from Virginia. They owned a tennis club in Lake City, Florida. They built and operated the club until he retired to Englewood Florida, playing tennis, kayaking, sailing, and cycling. Upon discovering The Villages, they moved here and enjoy their life with two cats and all the golf and picklball they can fit in.

 The Main reason Karen is still Practicing dental hygiene is the connection she has with her patients. They are not only her patients, but they are like her family, and she truly cares about them.
