Biography

Hi, I'm Dr. Joe. I grew up in the tricities, specifically Cambridge. I attended St Benedict's and Southwood High Schools in Cambrdige before moving on to an honours science program at the University of Waterloo. Afterwards I graduated from the University of Western Ontario Faculty of Dentistry in 1984. After graduating I practiced in Elmira for two years before moving to Kitchener and setting up what is now known as Kitchener Dental. Outside of my profession I enjoy spending time with my family, motocross riding, car restoration, and music.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating all cases, my greatest satisfaction is from making a patient feel more confident in their smile.

    My experience at Kitchener Dental was wonderful. By far the best dentist experience I’ve had. My hygienist, Meghan, was amazing. Super thorough cleaning and explained every step. No pain or discomfort at all. Dr. Annie was also great. She took the time to hear my concerns and answer my questions. The front desk staff was also very nice and helpful. I highly recommend Kitchener Dental.

    Booking my appointment through Opencare was very easy and I am happy that Dr. Marini's office offers flexible hours. I appreciated the reminder texts leading up to my appointment to ensure I didn't forget. My dental hygienist, Megan, was amazing! She was gentle but thorough with the cleaning and walked me through everything as it was happening. I saw Dr. Annie and she was very efficient and kind. Would definitely recommend Dr. Marini's dental practice to those looking for a new dentist - especially to anyone that has hesitancies or fears about visiting the dentist.
