Biography

I am Dr. Joo. I was born in Korea and currently reside in Vaughan, Canada. I received my undergraduate training at University of Toronto and graduated with degrees in zoology and human biology. I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery from NYU College of Dentistry. I have received extensive training in dental bone grafting using a process called Platelet Rich Fibrin, or PRF, which offers optimum results and healing. I also completed advanced training in periodontal, or gum, surgeries, and he’s certified for administering IV sedation. One of the things I enjoys most about being a dentist is getting to know his patients and building trust and life-long relationships. I love educating patients about the importance of oral health and how it affects their overall well-being. I consider the appreciation and acknowledgment from patients for the quality of work they received one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. When he’s not helping patients maintain their oral health, Dr. Joo can be found snowboarding, golfing, or watching basketball.

    Fantastic experience through booking with opencare and finding a wonderful dentist. The dental office staff were all very friendly, the office was gorgeous and my time mattered! Also, the office in itself provided TVs above each seat to watch Netflix!

    I think I will go back to him with the issues that I have been facing with my tooth. He explained this to me in the most simplest manner. Thanks to him now I understand what I was going through.

    I came in, she clearly explained what was going to happen entirely. I lied down in the chair, and they took care of it all. She was very involved with my well being, making it clear that I could raise my hand had I anything to say. She repeatedly asked if I was okay which was appreciated.

    From the minute I walked in I was kindly greeted and assured that I would receive the best service (with extra tlc after I mentioned my dentist fears) - everyone was very friendly, warm and welcoming. Dr. Joo was aware that I had unpleasant experiences before and talked to me not down to me. I appreciated that very much and also liked that he explained everything to me and so that I could understand plain and simple. Overall great experience and actually looking forward to getting into a better dental routine for myself.

  • The staff were very friendly and did a good job making me feel comfortable as a visit to the dentist makes me nervous.
    Reviewed on November 13th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    I was welcomed and waited in the lobby, where there are beverages available, coffee, juice, pop. My appointment didn't start right on time but the dental hygienist was very friendly and attentive. My appointment didn't feel rushed. I only wished I remembered that I can refuse to have x-rays done right way because then my appointment was much more than I expected. Dr. Joo was also very friendly and approachable. All in all it was a good experience and I would recommend them.

    I hate going to the dentist. Dr Joo and his staff made the experience as good as can be for me. Very kind, professional, quick, and Netflix to keep my mind off the procedures. Highly recommend for those who don't do well at the dentist.
