Dr. Kara Hobson, Vancouver, Wash.: I have been practicing orthodontics in Vancouver at Gentle Dental since May 2006. As a Portland-area native, I felt fortunate to give back to my community by creating beautiful smiles that last forever. After graduating from the dental school at the University of Washington in 2001, I moved to San Francisco to pursue an advanced education in General Dentistry at UCSF. I received an MS in Orthodontics at Oregon Health Sciences University in 2006. I am Board certified through the American Board of Orthodontists and am an active member of the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists and the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists. I enjoy traveling and the outdoors. I reside in both Portland and Hood River, Ore., and my out-of-the-office time is generally spent skiing, biking, golfing, or running. I recently ran the New York City Marathon. (Fall 2009)
