  • I've been going to Artek Dental Care for the past four years and have always been satisfied with Dr. Karn. If you're looking for a dentist that you can trust, I would recommend Artek Dental Care. I found them to be very professional and felt that they always had my best interests in mind as their patient. I wish them all the best going forward!

  • I take dental health extremely seriously and have had a few dentists throughout my life. But as long as Dr. Karn has her practice, I will not go anywhere else.

  • I would highly recommend Artek Dental Care. As someone who has had previous bad stories with other dental practices, going to Artek Dental was the best decision I've ever made in terms of my dental health and overall experience. I have encountered a lot of the different dentists and have had different experiences with all of them. And Dr. Velerie Karn is my absolute favorite dantist. She is professional, has a wealth of knowledge, amazing manner and is so pleasant to be around. Dr. Andrew is equally as awesome. He is really patient, explains things in a way that anyone can understand and always takes time to answer all of my questions. I have become one of those people who looks forward to going to the dentist since I have found a practice I can truly trust!
