About Dr. Karen Glerum

Karen Glerum DDS - Boynton Beach Dentist

Dr. Karen Glerum hails from the Baltimore, Maryland area. She holds a degree in Biology from Loyola College in Maryland. She graduated, near the top of her class, from Georgetown University School of Dentistry in 1984.

After graduation, Dr. Glerum came to Florida to pursue advanced residency training at the Miami Veterans Hospital and Jackson Memorial Hospital. Only 10% of dental graduates in the country are accepted to such advanced training.

Dr. Glerum established her own practice soon after residency and began serving the Boynton/Delray community in 1987.

Her practice thrives because of its personal service, and commitment to excellence. Dr. Glerum and her staff attend over 200 hours of continuing education each year, and are dedicated to learning the most advanced and well-proven techniques and technologies available.

Dr. Glerum has completed the curriculums of both the Dawson Center for Advanced Dentistry and The Pankey Institute. Dr. Glerum is a Sustaining Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and has passed AACD’s written Accreditation Examination. Her advanced education focuses on the proper function of the mouth as well as aesthetics.

In addition to her own continuing education, Dr. Glerum has taught many other dentists cosmetic techniques at the highly sought after Aesthetic Advantage Institute.

She has also presented her techniques to local dental societies. In fact, Dr. Glerum was the only woman dentist to ever serve our community as the President of the South Palm Beach County Dental Association (serving as a local delegate and a delegate to the Florida Dental Association), American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists, and American Association of Women Dentists.

Dr. Glerum believes in “giving back” to the community. She regularly treats indigent patients at no cost through the Donated Dental Services program. She has also completed a full oral rehabilitation for a domestic violence survivor through AACD’s “Give Back A Smile” program.

Dr. Glerum both works and lives in the Boynton Beach area. She is the proud Mom of two daughters. In her spare time, Dr. Glerum enjoys reading, cooking, bicycling, travel, trips to the beach, and most of all being a Mom! After all, motherhood and dentistry are very closely related; both require patience, knowledge, and compassion. She is proud to be a woman dentist in Boynton Beach.
