Dr. Kara Fraiman
Dr. Kara Fraiman was born in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in Northern New Jersey, just outside of Manhattan. Kara attended the 6-year BioDental program at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
She received her B.S. in biology from RPI and her D.M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. After dental school, Kara completed her training and received a certificate in Endodontics from the University of Pennsylvania.
While training at the University of Pennsylvania, Kara was part of one of the first classes formally trained in endodontic microsurgery. Kara then entered into private practice, limited to endodontics, and spent some time as a part-time assistant clinical professor at the University of Pennsylvania.
In addition to the practice of endodontics, Kara spends time running Ashley’s Angels, a foundation she founded, that supports care for sick and terminally ill children. Ashley’s Angels has been the largest community supporter of Palliative Care at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. In recognition of this, Kara was named 2007 honorary co-chair and Ashley’s Angels premier sponsor of CHOP’s Daisy Day Luncheon.
Dr. Kara Fraiman is married to Howard Fraiman. They are the parents to four children and reside in Bala Cynwyd.
