Smile Institute Invisalign Celebrity with Dr Soto



“I love my job!

Being able to provide my patients with beautiful smiles is such a gift!

I truly believe dentistry is an art, and here at Smile Institute, we are devoted to providing masterpieces in the most gentle and comfortable environment possible. Being a third-generation dentist, I was raised surrounded by amazing dentists and surgeons, always having fun playing with dental instruments in my parents’ offices. Things have not changed much. I still enjoy it every day and “playing with dental instruments” became my passion. Now my oldest daughter, now 8 years old, comes to play in the office. She puts on a mask and gloves and never wants to leave!

Outside of the office, I enjoy art on every level. Painting and dancing are my relaxation routines. I’ve been blessed with the most beautiful family; my amazing husband and my gorgeous little girls have me head over heels!

I look forward to taking care of you and giving you a healthy, beautiful smile!”

Dr. Karla Soto followed in her mother and grandfather’s footsteps in the path of dentistry. She graduated from the University of Maryland in 2006 and furthered her training in an intensive program for advanced cases in full mouth rehabilitation, implants, and cosmetic dentistry at the Baltimore VA Hospital.

Dr. Soto graduated as a member and leader of Gamma Pi Delta, a prosthodontic honor society for a selected group who excelled in clinical and hand skills. She held several leadership positions throughout her schooling. Prior to graduating from dental school, she obtained her bachelor’s degree in natural sciences from the University of Puerto Rico. Some of her interests include painting, sculpting, and traveling.

Dr. Soto is constantly training and learning the latest technology. She is also very active in community services and experienced dental missions overseas. Dr. Soto is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the International Team for Implantology – a distinguished worldwide network of professionals in implant dentistry. Her latest endeavor is a series of seminars and workshops by Spear Education, a mastery-level continuing education for dentists who are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence.

Thank you Dr. Soto for fitting me in at short notice when I was in some pain. For someone that has had a lot of work done, I appreciate her and her staff more than I can say. Don’t go anywhere else.
