Dr. Varone's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Varone "Dr. Karen Varone grew up outside of Philadelphia, PA and completed her undergraduate degree at Penn State University. She attended the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore, Maryland where she found a love of helping others through her volunteer work with Operation Smile, which allowed her to travel all over the globe and work with patients from different cultures and backgrounds. From there she attended the prestigious Ohio State University where she received specialty training in orthodontics as well as a master's degree in oral biology. Dr. Varone's graduate research concentrated on patients' satisfaction with orthodontic treatment, something she strives to bring to Varone Orthodontics."
