Dr. Joe Serra

I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know how excited I am to be part of Harleston Village Dental Excellence and the Charleston community! I was born and raised in Michigan, around the metro Detroit area. I attended the University of Michigan for my undergraduate studies and graduated from the University of Detroit School of Dentistry in 1990. I have owned two general dental practices, and recently sold my practice that focused on esthetics and treating TMJ and migraine headache patients. Since 1996, I have pursued excellence in clinical dentistry by taking extensive post-graduate continuing education courses at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. LVI provides many advanced courses for dentists around the world. In 1998, I was invited to become a clinical instructor for all the hands-on classes, with a focus on the Full Mouth Rehabilitation course. I was fortunate to help develop this course, which enables dentists to treat cases of advanced decay, trauma, and occlusal dysfunction, while also correcting bite problems.

I’m excited to be able to bring not only my love for esthetic dentistry to the office, but orthodontics, implant placement and restoration, and treating TMJ disorders.

I have been married to my wife Noreen for 28 years. Noreen is a kindergarten teacher and has been teaching for 29 years. My daughter Paige is 24 and finishing her 3rd year in law school at the University of Detroit Mercy. My son Joe is a third-year student at the Detroit Institute of Music Education, with a focus on Commercial Music Production. As a family, we all enjoy playing golf and trying new restaurants! I look forward to meeting all of you!
