Karen Hand

loves her career. She knew she wanted to get into dentistry from the moment she got braces at 12 years old. Karen would always ask the orthodontist for a mirror so she could see exactly what they were doing. She was completely enamored with the process.

She was born and raised in Allentown PA and moved to Sinking Spring in 2005. Karen is married to her high school sweetheart Evan for over 30 years. They have two daughters and a dog named Loki.

Karen’s other loves our physical fitness and gardening. She enjoys HIT and Boot Camp classes at Bodyzone, hiking, personal training, bike riding, etc.  if you can’t find Karen at work or the gym she’ll be out in her garden tending to her flowers. That is where she says she finds her Zen.

Karen is also passionate about helping her patients maintain their oral health. She takes pride in the compliments from her patients about her meticulous and comfortable cleaning methods.
