Joe Gerard, DDS
Dr. Joe Gerard graduated from La Sierra University in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science degree. He received his doctorate from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1990. He returned to Phoenix, where he was raised, and started a practice. In 1993, he opened a second location in Sun City. He has worked at both practices ever since, serving patients in the Peoria, Glendale, Surprise, and Sun City areas, as well as Phoenix and Scottsdale.
Dr. Gerard is an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). In 2006, he earned and received the prestigious Fellowship Award from the ICOI. Dentistry is constantly changing with the development of new procedures and technology. Dr. Gerard stays abreast of these new advancements and research because he is committed to providing quality patient care.
Although he has practiced many years, dentistry is still interesting and rewarding. He especially enjoys the camaraderie and friendships he has developed with his patients over the years.
