Picture of Dr. Vera

Dr. Karina Vera


Dr. Vera received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at The University of Michigan School of Dentistry, one of the top dental schools in the country. Dr. Vera’s focus on lifelong learning allows her to master the latest advancements in surgical, aesthetic, and restorative dentistry. She has received advanced training from some of the nation’s most prominent postgraduate dental training programs, including Implant Seminars and the Misch International Implant Institute.

Because Dr. Vera understands that some patients experience stress when contemplating a trip to the dentist, she emphasizes the importance of each and every patient being treated with compassion, gentleness, and respect. She is aware that every patient has a unique story, and so she listens in order to understand what their goals are and to develop the best treatment plan to help them attain optimal dental health. She knows that empowering her patients with information they can comprehend will ultimately lead to not just a successful dental outcome, but also a far more rewarding one - long-lasting good oral health.

Dr. Vera enjoys giving back to the community by volunteering at the Northern VA Community Clinic and Prince William Area Free Clinic, helping those who do not have access to dental care. Dr. Vera maintains active memberships in numerous prestigious professional organizations such as the International Dental Implant Association, Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association, and Northern VA Dental Society.  By being a member of the AGD, she is committed to meet continuing dental education course requirements, well beyond what is required by Virginia law.

In her spare time, Dr. Vera loves anything involving nature, being on the water, and sunshine. She enjoys traveling and exploring new cultures and, when close to home, savoring exotic cuisines at various restaurants in the DC area. More than anything else, Dr. Vera loves to meet new people, and believes strongly in the following eloquent words: “A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.” -Ghandi
