You will get glimpses of both man and nature’s magnificence… Majestic animals up close too! A real treat all the way around! Here’s to your happy, healthy, bright smile!

I really recommend Lizzie as a hygienist as she had wise advice! Very awesome visit, I don't think my teeth have ever felt cleaner. Thank you all :)

Old fillings were failing and I had some cracks in two teeth. One cavity was replaced and a ceramic in-house machined crown was installed. Entire visit lasted ~3hr. Very little pain during the procedure. Crown is indistinguishable from a real tooth. No post procedure pain next day. All in all went really well with a great result. New technology makes fillings almost invisible. Dr. Joy and his assistant were great.

Too bad there aren't 100 stars Id easily be able to award those to Dr Joy's outfit. I visited this past summer for a jaw issue and he helped me immensely. Then i got an email update from his office about all the Covid 19 precautions they were taking and sanitary efforts and i had not had my teeth cleaned in ages due to Covid. I signed up for teeth cleaning at Dr Joys office and wow ive never had such a thorough and great teeth cleaning experience. Ive know Dr Joy on a personal level for years and we always talked about his practice and boy am i glad i gave him a try. His hygienist that i worked with is amazing and i have to say i am excited for my next appointment - and going to the dentist isn't something i usually get excited about! His office is filled with filters and fans and cleaning materials i felt really safe. the hygienist wore an N95 mask and a face shield. Awesome place!

What Chris has has done to transform my smile deserves an award, which is probably why the office is filled with displayed awards (and clients with happy smiles). He is the man and his crew supports him with fantastic care and dedication!

I was always afraid of dentist, primarily because of the dental hygienist would normally scrape my choppers until they bleed and this would make the experience or desire to go to the dentist frightening. However, at Doctor Joy's office, you get the best care, the best service and the absolute best ambience for your dental care. Very caring people. I have been seeing Doctor Joy for 20+ years and I'm glad I have. Otherwise my teeth would have rotted out of my mouth by now.

Dental care in the time of the pandemic: I felt safe and well cared for as soon as I arrived. I called from my car and was given instructions. I was met in the garden to have a quick temperature check and questionnaire. There were many opportunities to use hand sanitizer as well as to wash hands. I was shown the new air scrubbers in the office and told how often they change the air in each exam room. The hygienist wore a fresh lab coat, a visor as well as an N-95 mask and another mask over it. I felt that I was protected and so were the people working on me. Thank you for making a necessary procedure during this crazy time very manageable!
more

Ruth W.

Personnel are very careful with protective coverings to protect the patient. Protocol includes taking temperatures and O2 blood saturations, alcohol based hand washings & then washing again before & after with soap and water. Dr. Joy and his staff are always very thorough in caring for my teeth and, indeed the entire mouth. We have been patients of Dr. Hoffman and then Dr. Joy for over 44 years. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

It is always a pleasure to visit Dr. Joy's office. I was impressed with the care they had taken to ensure health and safety (I didn't want to go back out into the smoke, because the air was so clean in the office!). I recently had both a regular cleaning and a 2 hour crown procedure. As always, Amy was thorough and observant in the cleaning and pleasant to visit with. Dr. Joy explained every step of the procedure (between regaling me with his recent hiking experiences) and the whole process, before, during and after, was totally painless. He even called in the evening to check up on me. Thank you!

I've gone to Dr. Joy's office for years now, and he and every member of his staff have been great. They've always worked hard to achieve the best possible dental outcome - and I'm glad that I can call Dr. Joy my dentist. He genuinely cares about his patients and the constructive concern he showed recently about a serious dental problem I might have, made it easier to have it done by a specialist. And the two specialists Dr. Joy referred me to over the years couldn't have been better. Some of the dentists I had in the past were very good, but Dr. Joy has been the best. If you're skeptical about new technology, consider this: Dr. Joy has a system to help make a crown in his office - and it all can be done while you are there - instead of sending an impression out to a lab. This saves a lot of time for the patient, and eliminates any problems with temporary crowns. It takes a forward thinking dentist to move in the direction where this is possible. The staff have been wonderful too: the front desk, the dental hygienists, and the dental assistants who help with the dental procedures. I'm lucky to have Dr. Joy and his staff working on my behalf.
