Dr. Joe received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida. He then attended the University of Illinois Chicago School of Dentistry to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. It was there during his pediatric rotation that he saw how a healthy smile could create a positive change in a child’s life, and he decided to specialize in Pediatric Dentistry. He chose to complete his residency in Pediatric Dentistry at the Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. After his residency, he established Lake Forest Pediatric Dentistry, and for each and every patient he has been devoted to creating the most positive experiences and delivering the finest care.
When not in the office, Dr. Joe loves spending time with his wife Laura, a local elementary school teacher, and their three children, Tommy, Mimi and Cece. He enjoys golfing, water sports and skiing. He can often be found on the sidelines or in the hockey rink cheering on his kids’ teams.
