Dr. Karen Gaines
Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist
After a fulfilling career in Orthodontics, Radiology has broadened my horizons and offers new and stimulating challenges. I enjoy connecting with and providing a service for practitioners from all over the globe. I appreciate the camaraderie of my colleagues at Beam Readers and for the freedom to enjoy working from multiple locations. Along with the hurdles of completing a thirty month specialty program have come many rewards.
