“Dr. Joe”, a specialist in pediatric dentistry, received his degree of Doctor of Dental Medicine from Tufts University, and then completed two years at Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, NY to attain his certificate in pediatric dentistry. He joined with his father, Dr. Frank, to practice together in 1995. Dr. Joe went on to become Board Certified in 1996. Dr. Joe is a member and diplomate of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). You will find Dr. Joe in the Vero Office, as well as at the Indian River Medical Center and Surgery Center of Fort Pierce, where he is on the surgical staff and provides dental treatment for children under general anesthesia. Dr. Joe is married to Veronica, and three sons complete their family. You can find Dr. Joe hunting or fishing whenever his schedule allows.
“Dr. Chris” brings a unique talent to the offices as he holds two separate degrees – one in pediatric dentistry and one in orthodontics. After completing his dental education at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, he attended a two year residency program at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. In 1997 he joined his father and brother, and then returned to Children’s National Medical Center in 1998 to receive his certificate in orthodontics. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. He provides orthodontic care, for adults and children, in both offices. He and Dr. Rachelle are busy not only in their office, but also at home with their three daughters. He does work in a game of racquetball whenever possible!
The warmth, friendliness and professionalism of our staff is unprecedented. We pride ourselves in providing a home-away-from-home atmosphere where our patients feel comfortable and confident. Our exquisite sea life theme carries throughout the office offering scenery and “critters” the children love to visit.
For our parents and patients we offer:
Parents are welcome to come back during their child’s treatment.
Play areas stocked with toys, Nintendo and a movie.
The convenience of children combining their 6-month cleaning and check up with their braces adjustment appointment.
To assure our little ones are started on the correct road early, we will see our patients under three for free for their first visit.
There is no charge for a meeting with Dr. Chris to access if and when braces will be necessary.
Dr. Chris holds dual certifications – one for pediatric dentistry and one for orthodontics. Your child is given the best of both worlds!
Our doctors are specially trained in techniques that ensure excellent care for our patients with significant medical, physical or mental disabilities.
Some children need more support than a gentle, caring manner to feel comfortable during dental treatment. To meet the needs of this child, our Dr. Joe may provide care at a local hospital or surgery center under general anesthesia.
