About Dr. Joe

Dr. Joe started his passion for dental implants in 2002 when he was a second-year dental student at Temple University. He would travel to his dental instructor Dr. Bob Brown’s practice to watch and learn more about dental implants. While in dental school, he decided to attend a dental implant training course at U.C.L.A and would travel to Los Angeles once a month to gain more knowledge and training. This fueled his love for dental implants. Dr. Joe knew when he finished dental school that he would continue his comprehensive learning to be able to solely focus on offering this great service to his patients.
