Dr. Karen Leavy has been practicing with the Long Island Orthodontic Associates for the past 15 years. She received her undergraduate degree from Adelphi University and her Doctor of Dental Science from New York University College of Dentistry. After completing a General Practice Residency at North Shore Hospital in Manhasset, she completed her 3-year specialty program in orthodontics at the Albert Einstein / Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx.
Dr. Leavy has been fortunate enough to receive many academic and clinical awards during her career, including the Lyle B.

She continues to broaden her knowledge through continuing education courses and her memberships in the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, and the Nassau County Dental Association.
Dr. Leavy has long realized the importance of a nice smile, not only from a dental, but also a social standpoint. She continually strives to provide quality, patient-oriented treatment in the caring environment that Long Island Orthodontic Associates offers. Her ultimate goal is to establish a long lasting relationship with each patient and encourage future maintenance of their overall dental health.
Outside the office, Dr Leavy enjoys the time she spends with her husband, Steve, and their three children.
