Dr. Karen Wurster

Dr. Karen Wurster has joined the Bela Family Dentistry of Sandhills in Columbia, SC.

Wurster provides general restoration, crown, bridge, partials, implant restoration, simple extractions, Clear Correct aligners, dentures, cosmetic dentistry, whitening and nitrous and oral sedation services.

After graduating from the University of South Carolina, Wurster became a commercial real estate broker in Greenville. She went back to school to gain the credentialing needed to apply to dental school. During that time, she worked at the Greenville Free Clinic as a dental assistant. Wurster also worked as a dental volunteer on a mobile unit aimed to fill the gap in the underserved Hispanic population in Greenville.

“My passion is smile restoration through a collaborative process with my patients. What I am most interested in are the goals patients have for their oral health and their smile and helping them achieve those effortlessly,” she said. “While a beautiful smile is great, also having a healthy foundation to support that smile is key.”

Wurster is passionate about interior design, antiques and animal rescue. She has three rescues of her own: Penelope, Palmer and Huckleberry. She loves spending time on the water, especially fishing, with her family and friends. She also enjoys trying new restaurants and foods.

“Being able to give patients the smile they have always desired is my favorite part of being a dentist,” Wurster said.
