Dr. Tanya Karnavy

Aloha,I’m Dr. Tanya!  I graduated from The University of Denver (Go Pioneers!) and continued to the Big Apple to attend New York University for dental school. From the Big Apple I moved to the Big Island (well actually the island of Oahu, but close enough) where I was lucky to do an advanced training program in general dentistry at Kokua Kalihi Valley Health Center.  I continued to study the specialty of pediatric dentistry with Luthern Medical Center.  Throughout all these steps I have worked at a preschool and taught 7th grade science!  I am always surrounding myself with kids!

After seeing many fearful adults resulting from negative childhood dental experiences, I want so much to give a positive dental “home” environment and create healthy habits for my patients at a young age. I was lucky to have seen a pediatric dentist when I was growing up, which was a good thing because I spent a lot of time in the chair!  How I Loved candy and hated flossing!  I even had braces twice! 

Today I am excited to be part of the Little Britches Family promoting healthy habits from the start.  I am on the Board of Directors for Boulder’s Dental Aid (The first not-for-profit comprehensive dental clinic in the United States!) and focus on Little Britches education and outreach.  I have done outreach programs in Hawaii, Honduras, Thailand and New York and am excited to see what we can do together here in Colorado.

My 14 year old son keeps me on my toes (hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding, really everything Colorado!) and I love spending time with my “awesome” family here in Colorado, in California and across the ocean in Thailand, learning new things, exploring the outdoors, cooking, eating delicious and nutritious food, traveling, and of course being a kid’s dentist.

I look forward to providing the BEST dental care around with the Little Britches and Next Level Team just for you!
