  • Tejashree Karkare, DDS

Bio Coming Soon  - Graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in 1996.

  • Kimberly O'Brien, RDH ~ Team member since May 2015.

I began my dental career as a Dental Assistant in 1986. After working as an Orthodontic Dental Assistant, my passion for denistry grew. I decided to return to college in 1996 to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. I graduated with Honors from Edison State College in Ft. Myers, FL with my Associates in Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 1997. Fast Forward 30 years of dental work history to May 2015 when I joined Contemporary Dental Arts as their 2nd Hygienist. My role as your Dental Hygienist is to provide exceptional and comfortable care to my patients in a professional, calm and caring atmosphere. I take great pride in being a health care professional and enjoy the opportunity to help our patients understand why complete oral care is so beneficial to their overall health.

I currently Live in Clearwater with my Boyfriend and our cat, Serena. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, concerts, bicycle riding and walking in the park.

  • Jessica - Office Manager ~ Team member since March 2014.

I have lived in the St. Pete/Seminole area for 32 years, so I call Pinellas County home. I have been working in dentistry since 1998. Primarily working the front desk for the first few years of my career. Somewhere around 2000, I fell in love with dentistry and decided I wanted to learn more. I then became cross trained to work in the back assisting the Doctor and Hygienist. In 2005 I took a leap and left the clinical side of dentistry and went to work for a Major Insurance Company as a Dental Provider Relations Representative. In 2009 I decided I wanted to return to a Dental Office setting, and came back to working with  a team of dental professionals. I missed the dentistry, the patients and the impact I could have on someones dental health. I am so very passionate about dentistry and dental health! I feel at home here and love being the smiling face patients see when they walk in.

I love to spend time with my Husband and son. We stay busy doing fun things around town, traveling, camping or just going to see a movie. My son is in Cub Scouts and is in Soccer. Riding my bike and photography are my main hobbies.
