Dr. Karen Furlong

Dr. Karen Furlong began practicing at Nova Dental upon graduation from Dalhousie Dental School in 1988. Over the past 24 years, she has helped direct our office’s growth in the community and was extremely involved with the planning of our new office.

Passionate about esthetic/cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Furlong gets excited about giving patients their best possible smile. She achieves this by listening to her patients’ thoughts on their smile and using the best combination of options such as orthodontics, Sapphire professional tooth whitening, lumineers, lasers and other techniques. As she is often heard to comment, “There is no better feeling than when a patient looks at a pre-treatment picture then looks in their mouth and says, "I can’t believe that smile is mine."

In her spare time, Dr. Furlong plays squash and is a National level 4 swim official and organizes Halifax’s International Children’s Games Team. Her husband and two teenaged daughters are also very involved in sport. Dr. Furlong actively volunteers with Global Dental Relief. Dr. Furlong has provided dental care to under served populations in Nepal, Guatemala, Peru and Kenya.
