Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Kara Opheim

As an undergraduate student, Dr. Opheim attended the University of South Dakota where she attained both an Associate of Arts Degree and a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. She always knew, from there, her passion was to be a Dentist, so she attended the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, where she received her DDS in General Dentistry. Growing up in a small town, called Spirit Lake, Iowa, she learned, firsthand, the importance of customer service and being involved in the community. That has led her to volunteer her time helping others at Mission of Mercy by volunteering at free clinics.

Dentistry is extremely important to her as she believes it helps people find their smiles. It can take someone from a potentially unhealthy situation, or lowered self-esteem, and build them up, giving them the tools for success in the future and helping them reach their full potential. She lives in Berwyn, IL, with her best friend and all their animals.
