Dr. Stephanie Karapetian
Dr. Stephanie Karapetian joined the Coppe and Sears Pediatric Dental and Orthodontic team in the summer of 2017. Dr. Stephanie was born in Dallas, Texas and grew up in Los Angeles, California. Growing up she was involved in musical theater, playing the piano and she can tap dance!
She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Miami where she was granted a Dean's Scholarship. Dr. Stephanie then moved to New York City to attended New York University College of Dentistry for her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She graduated completing honors programs in Public Health, Aesthetic Dentistry, and Pediatric Dentistry. During her time in dental school Dr. Stephanie was very passionate about global outreach, traveling to different locations around the world to provide dental care to those in need. It was her outreach experiences that helped her discover that working with children was her passion in dentistry. She believes implementing healthy habits and taking time to explain the importance of oral health to both children and their parents is a crucial part of having a healthy future. Dr. Stephanie then continued to pursue her specialty training at NYU and Bellevue Hospital in Pediatric Dentistry. During her specialty training, she received a wide range of experience working with children with craniofacial anomalies, special needs, as well as children with complex medical histories. She has been working with NYU to create a new outreach program to Armenia, where her heritage lies, to facilitate care for the children there who have no access to dental care.
Dr. Stephanie is very excited to be moving to the Boston area to serve the Lexington community. Having had her own positive experiences visiting the dentist as a child she understands the importance in working individually with each child in order to promote a lifetime of good oral and dental care.
When not in the office, Dr. Stephanie enjoys traveling, spending time with her family and friends, cooking, reading, and trying new restaurants.
