Dr. Joseph Alvarez, DDS
Dr. Joseph F. Alvarez understands that a dentist appointment
doesn’t rank at the top of the “favorite things to do” list for
most people. For some, it is a stressful situation- so stressful
that patients may avoid seeking treatment. That’s why he works
just as diligently to alleviate fears and inconveniences for his
patients as he does to remedy their dental problems.
This is especially evident in the way he has equipped and
staffed his office. He strives to provide an environment that
expresses warmth and comfort. It is also seen in the training he
has undergone and continues to pursue.
Services offered include
periodontal therapy, oral cancer screenings, root canals,
cosmetic restorations (including porcelain veneers, onlays/
inlays and crowns), conventional crowns and bridges, partial and
complete dentures, and implant restorations.
“Our focus is esthetic restorative dentistry.” - Dr. Alvarez
Dr. Alvarez’s journey began in his hometown of San Antonio,
Texas. He received his undergraduate degrees from St. Mary’s
University at San Antonio in 1982, graduated dental school from
the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in
1986 and moved to Atlanta shortly after. By 1990, he had
purchased his first dental practice in Smyrna, Georgia.
When not treating patients Dr. Alvarez enjoys spending time with
his wife, Kathy, and his dogs Weezer, Charlie and Merry Belle.
Other hobbies include woodworking, landscaping, playing golf,
rooting for his beloved Spurs and Steelers and supporting
Atlanta Pet Rescue.
