Dr. Joy and his team were extraordinary, from getting to know me with friendliness, providing me with an in-depth assessment and creating a good treatment plan, I was extremely pleased!

Never have I had a wonderful experience at a dental office, but Dr. Joy is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and gave me confidence about the dental work that I need done. He allayed my fears and explained options clearly so that I can make an informed decision. He was thoughtful and reassuring in addition to being highly competent. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

There is no doubt that the Dr. Joy, and his staff, provide first class services. The environment feels comfortable and clean. I appreciate that masking rules are still in place because I am immune suppressed. I don’t make antibodies to Covid, even after 4 vaccinations, and I’m allergic to flu vaccines.

Tatjana M.

Great experience! I had a cleaning with Amy and she was excellent! I would recommend this office to my friends and family.

Barbara O.

Dr. Joy went out of his way to take care of me in somewhat of an emergency. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. Barbara Dr. Joy was very good at explaining everything he was doing for me. He was concerned about avoiding any pain. The whole experience was excellent and I felt very well cared for. Bryn

Sarah B.

Dr Joy gave the most detailed examination I’ve ever had! He was very patient & answered all of my questions. I got a root canal that was virtually painless. The cleaning I received was also very thorough. I don’t like the fact that the individual rooms have no doors. I would think that doors are an advantage during a pandemic, keeping the different patients separated while they have their masks off. I understand that there are air filters and fans in the rooms.

Dr. Joy has been taking excellent care of my teeth for many years. Recently I had an accident and chipped one of my front teeth. He was able to repair it and you would never know it had been chipped! A miracle! I am so thankful!

I am a Professor of Physics and a patient of Dr. Christopher Joy. I managed to break one of my front teeth in December 2002. When Dr. Joy looked at it, it was clear that we have a problem of a very unusual kind, because not much remained of the tooth. It took several months of his work in parallel with his daughter Adrienne from Joy Orthodontics, and now I can finally smile again. I am very impressed by the quality of their work. Chris is a charming and highly intelligent person, with a passion to photography, which I share, and I think that he takes personal pride in the way my teeth look now after these procedures. I am very happy to recommend Chris and Adrianne, they make a great team!

Beth N.

Chris is a joy (ha ha); to have as a dentist.

Great experience all around. I've been a patient of Dr. Joy for 20 years at least and have always been taken care of in a caring but also a professional manner. Amy is my usual hygienist but all the staff are fantastic,.

Peggy L.

I was having significant pain in the area of my lower left molars, and a friend of mine suggested that I contact Dr. Joy. I did, and just in time. Dr. Joy and his staff, a great team, arranged for an immediate appointment. He identified the problem, carefully explained what was happening, and took immediate steps to fix it. The entire team was efficient and friendly. I have confidence in them to solve my dental problems.

Susan J.

My first visit with Dr. Joy was very pleasant and thorough. We set up a plan to get the most needed work done before I leave for the winter.

Peter B.

Very well run with excellent staff who have all been there for many years. Excellent dental care.

Dan H.

Dr. Joy’s office is exceptionally clean, spacious, designed and equipped to keep patients safe. The staff works as a team to combine their expertise for an efficient yet personal experience. Every detail of our oral health was evaluated and services carefully considered by cost and effectiveness. We were surprised by the amount of time given to our care. Following our initial consultation my wife and I were able to make cleaning appointments within two weeks. Our cleaning visits were unusually comfortable and thorough. It takes high standards, experience and a lot of heart to make a dental business this good.
