Kara Ford, DMD

Dr. Ford became interested in dentistry early on. Her career in dentistry began in 2001 when she began working as an assistant at a dental office in her small hometown in Kentucky. It did not take her long to realize that dentistry was the career field for her because she loved the technical, hands-on aspect of dentistry, as well as the relationships it allowed her to build with patients. She graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. From there, she continued her education at the University of Kentucky, graduating from the College of Dentistry in 2012.

Dr. Ford is very passionate about continuing her dental education and staying current on the newest techniques and technology that will best serve her patients. She enjoys all aspects of dentistry and being able to serve all members of the family. Being a mother of three young children, providing delicate care for children is a great joy for her; in addition, her advanced skillset allows her to provide for the needs of her adult patients as well.
Dr. Ford can provide her patients with comprehensive dental care, as well as cosmetic dentistry, ClearCorrect (a clear alternative to braces), dental implants, BOTOX® treatments, facial fillers, teeth whitening, and much more.

When not in the office, Dr. Ford enjoys spending quality time with her husband, Steven, and their children. They enjoy traveling and exploring all of the wonderful attractions that Florida has to offer!
