Everything is awesome when you are in the care of Dr. Kara Hobson. She is an experienced, well rounded professional. I have observed her friendly personality and her dedication to orthodontia. We love Kara and you will also!
My daughter Lola will have her first visit with Kara in October and she can't wait. Our family has known Kara for many years and we all adore her. I have never seen a little girl so excited to go to the orthodontist office and it all has to do with how caring and friendly Dr. Kara Hobson is.
I had my braces done by Dr. Hobson and she was so wonderful. She is so nice and really cares about her patients. My teeth really looked nice when I was done with my braces. She is so detailed at her work and wanted my teeth to look as good as possible.
Doctor Hobson was able to get our daughter Gigi to stop sucking her thumb using a painless treatment in a short amount of time. At first, our daughter was nervous, but Dr. Hobson was very sympathetic and took the time to help our daughter understand why it was so important to quit. Now our daughter is all smiles and very proud of her accomplishment.
