Client Spotlight - JOY MORRIS, DDS
Joy Morris began her dental career at the young age of 16 by working as a dental assistant in San Francisco.
She received on-site training and saw the value in dentistry as a quality career path for women. As a result, she, along with her twin sister Connie, decided to pursue higher education until they received their DDS degrees. They were the youngest and only twins to graduate from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 1993. The twin sisters are first generation college graduates, with origins rooted in Greece.
The most rewarding part of Joy’s career is helping her patients walk away happy and confident; knowing that changing one’s self-esteem by giving them a nicer smile makes a significant difference in peoples’ lives. She and her sister each have over 20 years as solo practitioners running their own private practices. Joy grows her business strictly through word-of-mouth referrals. She doesn’t compete with her sister, rather they are working professionals and best friends. In her free time, Joy practices healthy lifestyle habits when she is not prioritizing her two children, who are near graduating college, or running her own business in San Francisco. She enjoys the simple things in life and is an avid runner to help maintain a clear mind. The most valuable takeaway she believes is educating her children to give them the necessary tools to survive and become assets to society. They are currently attending Chapman University and UC Berkeley and continue to brighten her life through their successes.
Dr. Morris has considered teaching dentistry, conceivably returning to the University of the Pacific to advise up and-coming dentists with a focus on the psychology of human connection in private practice. The doctor-patient relationship in dentistry is nearly just as important as the practice itself.

In 2017, wildfires swept through Sonoma County causing roughly 90,000 people to evacuate their homes, with many homes destroyed. At our annual client event that year, we announced a donation to the Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma and had a speaker from the organization present the work that will be done with donations to their organization. Many clients were moved by the work of this great charity and pitched in as well.
On Saturday, August 10th, Karp Capital volunteered in Sonoma County to aid in the effort to complete these homes so these new residents will finally have a new place to call home.
