I have had several fillings in my lifetime, but this was my best experience. I really appreciate the face to face time and valued knowing exactly what was being done. The process of getting the fillings was painless and the results were exactly as described.


I have had cold sensitive teeth for a long time now, especially my 'eye' teeth. Cold air even made it difficult to smile without pain. Dr. Joy suggested I try "Brush & Bond". I was somewhat hesitant because of the coldness of just brushing it on, but it was so worth it! You can have it on 1 tooth or several, depending on your need. I would recommend this to anyone! I had this done several months ago now, and it is still working. It is just awesome! Dr. Joy and all her staff have been very helpful with all my "mouth issues". I no longer dread going to the dentist!


Thank you Dr. Joy! You are the best dentist ever! Thank you for your care, support and your expertise! You and your wonderful staff helped me through my teeth crises!! I have had "dentist-phobia" for many years, but no more thanks to all of you!! Kari Morton too- thank you for your patience and care. Not only is Dr. Joy's dental clinic beautiful, so you don't feel like you're in a clinic... but the treatment you get is amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Joy's Dental Clinic. They are professional, caring and very knowledgeable and they sure bring back your smile!


Everything went so good, no pain at all. It didn't seem to take very long. I had such great people working on me. Dr. Joy and her helpers were so gentle and caring during my root canal. I am very happy to have it done. Great work!


I love to go to my dentist, Dr. Joy and her crew. It is an experience like no other. They are friendly, kind, happy, considerate and more. I actually get excited a few days prior to my visit. Fun, fun, fun. Does that sound strange? Maybe, but true. Going to see Dr. Joy is a great joy. Love her and her gals. They are like friends to me! Sometimes I call to remind them of my up coming appointment just to be silly and hear their voices. I enjoy bringing JOY to their lives.


Before braces, I didn't smile with my mouth open as I was embarrassed of my teeth. Now I'm very happy with my smile! Thanks Dr. Joy & staff for being as pleasant as they are. Having braces wasn't as painful as I thought!


I love my smile now! Before I would cover my mouth when I laughed, but now I love to show off my smile! Thanks Dr. Joy!


I had a root canal done and a new crown. Everything was painless. I had a very good experience. I would recommend Dr. Joy's for anybody in need of dental work!


I have had this filling replaced a few times - always dread having it done as it normally is very painful. This time I had it replaced and a new cavity and was amazed by the whole process at Dr. Joy's Clinic. They made sure I was good & numb and Dr. Joy took the time I needed.

In the past I have had to return to the doctors office to have fillings grinded down after or returned because of pain, but this time I was only mildly sore and by evening - nothing! I have never been so impressed before by a dentist.

"Coming to the dentist for anyone can be daunting, especially when a person puts off dental care unless it's for an emergency. Not here - the staff is welcoming as soon as you walk in. They make it a relaxing experience and are able to walk a person through the steps of any procedure. Dr. Joy connects with patients and presents the patient with a dental plan and she has the knowledge and experience to put patients at ease. She knows life gets busy and focuses on "what can we do now" and then moves forward with a plan of action. For me, my experience has been fantastic and I keep coming back because of the location, knowledge, experience and willingness to help me with my dental health."

"My migraines have subsided since realignment of my teeth/bite. I feel more confident with my side profile while smiling. Before my overbite was pretty bad and I had a complex about it. Now I don't, and I love to show it off! The staff are all so friendly and really love their job, profession and particularly their patients! They have their best interest at heart."

Kathy S.

"I was in need of dental care. I was given Dr. Joy's reference from a friend who had been very pleased with care and results. It was diagnosed that my top teeth and two molars were diseased. I agreed to have all infected teeth extracted at the same time. I went through the procedure with no pain or anxiety! Dr. Joy and staff are very skilled and knowledgeable on patient care. Very considerate and make you feel you are important and your care is their goal. After a month or more of healing I was fitted and received my upper dentures which are perfect! I have gotten compliments from friends. I feel like a new person. Personal care and comfort is their goal. I recommend anyone to please see Dr. Joy and staff for dental needs. Care is personal and confidential. I am a new person!"

Michele B.

"I love to smile now, before I wasn't very fond of it until Dr. Joy and staff fixed her up! I smile and laugh now without even thinking about it! When I got my braces off, the first thing I did was eat peanuts."


I love my smile! I am more confident when I smile! I feel like it was so worth it. The staff is so nice and helpful!


I love my smile now! I'm constantly getting compliments on my smile. I'm no longer embarrassed to show it off!


I hated my smile before I had braces, which stinked because I'm always laughing and smiling. I'm not embarrassed to laugh or smile anymore. I love my smile! I can't imagine going anywhere else to get braces. I'm so glad I cam to Dr. Joy's. Everyone is so kind and lovely and I could tell they all really cared!
