An Idaho native who truly loves treating the kids in our community.
“I look forward every day to talking with my patients’ parents and, as a parent myself, I promise I will always listen to you as we work together to establish healthy dental habits for your children, ensuring they will have a bright smile that will last a lifetime.” – Dr. Karen Sept
Dr. Karen Sept was born and raised in Orofino, Idaho, and completed her undergrad at Idaho State University.
She and her husband, Dr. Matthew Sept (also a Moscow, ID dentist), joined the Navy together and served four years of active duty stationed in San Diego and Naples, Italy, while completing their advanced education in general dentistry.
Dr. Karen completed her specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and was Chief Resident in her second year. While she and her husband enjoyed the Southern charm of South Carolina, the Septs missed the mountains of Idaho and decided to move to Moscow to raise their family.
