Meet Dr. Joseph Fernandes

Dr. Fernandes was born and raised in the Northern Virginia area. After receiving a Bachelors of Science from George Mason University and Master’s in Biomedical Science from Barry University in South Florida, he returned home to attend Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington D.C. 

Dr. Fernandes then moved to Louisiana to complete a one year hospital residency at Louisiana State University before joining a private practice outside of New Orleans, where he began his career. He later decided to return to and settle in Florida and that is where he eventually joined our team.
