Karen Faherty has greeted patients at our McCarl Dental Group Greenbelt / College Park Dental Office with her caring and warm smile for 26 years. Her friendly and outgoing personality helps keep our office cheerful and fun. Karen’s special personal touches reflect her dedication to our patients. She also plans fabulous events for our staff including picnics, bowling competitions, Bay Sox games and our office Christmas party.
Karen has lived in Greenbelt since she was 10 years old. She was a patient of Dr. James T. McCarl (Dr. David McCarl’s father). Karen joined McCarl Dental Group as a part-time dental assistant four evenings a week in 1984. She answered an advertisement in the Greenbelt News Review to be an assistant for the “new” Greenbelt / College Park dentists, Dr. Clayton McCarl, Jr. and Dr. Jay McCarl when they graduated from dental school. Karen says, “It was a great opportunity for me to work and also spend time at home with my young children. Twenty-five years later, it is still a perfect fit! While I have since transitioned from a dental assistant to a front desk receptionist, the warm interactions with the patients remain the same. Being part of this team has created life-long friendships with both staff and patients alike. I’m really glad that I answered that ad!”
Karen’s sons are now 30, 26, and 18, the youngest a freshman at the University of Maryland, College Park running track — GO TERPS!
