Mia Karam, DDS

Born in Beirut, Lebanon, Dr. Mia Karam knew at a very early age she wanted to be an orthodontist. She spent many summers assisting her father, an orthodontist himself, in his practice. She earned her degree of Docteur en Chirurgie Dentaire (DDS) at Université Saint Joseph, Lebanon. She graduated first in her class, which helped her get a position into the orthodontic department at NYU, where she earned her post-graduate certification. During her three-year residency program, Dr. Karam taught the honors undergraduate students the basics of orthodontic treatment and overlooked their patients’ treatment with Invisalign®.

Dr. Karam met her husband, also a native of Lebanon, in New York and decided to pursue another Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in order to practice in the US. She has many years of experience in New York City working with adults and children.

Each year, Dr. Karam participates in continuing education seminars, as well as regional and national orthodontic conferences. Dr. Karam is committed to excellence and to staying up to date with technological advances in orthodontics. Beyond creating beautiful, full, wide and straight smiles, she strives to create facial harmony, positive growth and optimal breathing patterns for her patients. She is passionate about creating healthy and functional smiles that help patients achieve their smile goals and increase their confidence.

Dr. Karam holds a regular membership with the American Association of Orthodontists® and the American Dental Association®. She speaks English, French and Arabic fluently.

Dr. Karam lives in New York with her husband and two children, Sammy and Maria. She loves spending her weekends in Connecticut, where she enjoys hiking, biking and kayaking. She also loves cooking with her husband, who is a restaurateur, and looks forward to traveling and discovering new places on her vacations!
