Joseph A. Santoro, DDS is a skilled and caring dental implantologist at Dental Design of Arcadia. He earned his BSA in Microbiology with a Minor in Chemistry from ASU, and he received his DDS from the University of Colorado School of Dentistry. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Santoro returned home to Phoenix, Arizona to pursue his dental career.
By his fourth year in practice, his love for oral surgery led him to conduct a two-year internship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and a Fellowship in Oral Implantology. He is one of only a handful of Fellowship-trained Implantologists in the United States, and he has dedicated his career to the pursuit of excellence in implant surgery and bone regeneration.
Dr. Santoro instills his pursuit of excellence in everything he does including his volunteer work with Cass Dental Clinic, where he provides dental care to homeless women, men and children. He lectures about MIS Implants and serves on the Board of Directors as a founding member of the National Association of Special Care Dentistry.
“From an early age, my work in building fine scale models of all types helped me to understand the joy that comes from creating objects of beauty and function with my hands. Having grown up with a medical doctor as my father enabled a special appreciation for the importance of quality health care delivery, and the impact it can have on the lives of patients. For me, dentistry was a perfect blending of these two ideas.”
