The team at Blue Ridge Orthodontics is always looking for ways to better accommodate their patients. That’s why they’re excited to welcome Dr. Karla M. Alvarado, DMD, MSD to their practice, and announce expanded office hours starting in January.
Dr. Alvarado and her husband, Jayson, recently relocated to Asheville from New York, and are looking forward to the milder weather here. Dr. Alvarado is bilingual in Spanish and English, and highly-qualified to serve patients well:
- University of Puerto Rico, Orthodontic Graduate Program, Masters in Dental Sciences
- Montefiore Medical Center, General Practice Residency
- Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, Certificate in Public Health
- University of Puerto Rico, School of Dental Medicine, Graduate Magna cum laude
- University of Central Florida, BS in Biology
Dr. Alvarado always knew she wanted to work in a medical field, and discovered dentistry as an undergrad in a pre-dental organization. From there, she was always fascinated by the transformation that occurs with orthodontics. Having undergone orthodontic treatment herself, she loves watching her patients’ self-esteems improve as their smiles improve.
Outside of the office, Dr. Alvarado enjoys cooking and spending time outdoors. She believes that community involvement is very important, and has received satisfaction from helping patients with cleft lips and palates, and working with a team to help provide not only aesthetic improvements, but better nutrition and speech development.
