Dr. Joe

Joseph P. Barta, DDS | Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Joe is a people-first kind of person. Before he starts looking at your teeth, he’s going to be checking in on you. Are you nervous? He’ll listen and chat to help you calm your nerves. Had a bad experience? Tell him about it. He wants every patient in his chair to be calm and comfortable before he ever sees their teeth. Creating a fear-free experience for kids is the hallmark of a great pediatric dentist. When he isn’t helping kids have a great dental experience, you can find him exploring nature with the grandkids and volunteering his time to help every kid access dental care.
