Do you want to know why you see so many people smiling in town? It’s because Kara Opheim is their dentist in Manitowoc. She’s an established member of the community and is passionate about what she does. You’ll find her office where Custer Street meets Washington Street.
Dr. Opheim attended the University of South Dakota as an undergraduate student, where she attained both an Associate of Arts degree and a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. After her dental experiences here, she knew that her passion was to become a Dentist. She decided to attend the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, where she received her DDS in General Dentistry.
Growing up in the small town of Spirit Lake, Iowa, with her father, Kenny, mother, Char and brother, Aaron, she learned firsthand, the importance of customer service and being involved in the community. This has led her to volunteer her time helping others, playing all sorts of games (video, role-playing, and board games), crocheting, and going on walks with her dog. She also has a nephew, Eben, whom she loves very much.
Dentistry is extremely important to Dr. Opheim, as she believes it helps people find their smiles. It can take someone from a potentially unhealthy situation, or lowered self-esteem, and build them up to give them the tools for success and help them reach their full potential. She lives in Manitowoc, Wisconsin with her best friend, his cats and dog, and her dog, Rhea.
