Dr. Karen Jung Rosen
I love dentistry for the hands-on, personalized aspect of it. Being able to create trust with a patient through thorough exams, taking the time to explain why treatment is needed, and performing high quality dentistry in as comfortable of an environment as possible brings me true joy.
Another reason why I love dentistry is the creative and artistic aspects. There’s nothing better than being able to give the gift of a smile to a patient that may have stopped showing their teeth due to discomfort or embarrassment. Not only that, I love being able to give back to my community through dentistry by volunteering my time.
When I was 12-years-old, I developed cavities in most of my back teeth. My family dentist was so kind to me, taking a picture of each tooth and explaining to me in detail what was going on and how it could be prevented in the future. He made my experience comfortable and stress-free, and I was never anxious about dental treatment. This is the experience that I aspire to provide for my patients.
I am thrilled to be a part of the amazing team at Redondo Beach Dental Group and will always be looking forward to practicing caring, gentle, and compassionate dentistry for patients of all ages. I am passionate about patient education that can lead to prevention of dental issues.
Outside the Office
I have also had many opportunities to participate in various dental outreach programs providing free dental care to underserved populations both here and internationally, including El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, and CareNow in Los Angeles. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and eating delicious food with my husband Matthew, running half marathons with my father, and taking pictures of my cat, Indie.
