Meet Dr. Karen Reisner

Being an orthodontist is possibly the best profession in the world. For me, it is a blessing to be able to help others achieve a beautiful smile. I find it very rewarding to take a person who is already beautiful and make them even more beautiful, confident, and comfortable through orthodontic care. It is not only the patient’s smile that transforms, but their personality as well.

Outside the Office

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, I immigrated to the United States in 1986. I currently reside in Cresskill with my husband, Craig, our two lovely children, Emma and Chase, and our two dogs, Cody and Simba. When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with my family, spin, yoga and listening to classical music.
