Our very own 2015 Business Man of the Year has been practicing dentistry in Mariposa since 1984. Aside from his many educational and professional achievements, Dr. Tom enjoys hiking and photography, as well as spending time with his first grandchild. When he’s not busy handling the complex dental cases of Yosemite Dental Care, he dreams of someday hiking the John Muir trail.
Since returning from practicing dentistry on Wall Street in New York City, Dr. Tim has been instrumental in guiding business growth and adoption of new technologies at Yosemite Dental Care. A Mariposa native, Dr. Tim also enjoys backpacking, travel, and cooking delicious food. Dr. Tim is excited to have his fiancé, Dr. Karen, working at his side.
Since joining Yosemite Dental Care in June 2016, Dr. Karen has rapidly become one of the most loved and tireless forces in the office. Dr. Karen never steps down from a challenge, and she always goes the extra mile for her patients and co-workers. Dr. Karen is excited to raise her first child in Mariposa with Dr. Tim. She enjoys hiking, backpacking, running half-marathons, and all things Disney.

The doctors at Yosemite Dental Care are qualified to extract impacted wisdom teeth and save you a trip to the oral surgeon.

Oral Conscious Sedation has become a preferred option to remove the stress of many procedures in dentistry. Oral Sedation has nothing to do with pain, but everything to do with your mental game.
