Dr. Joy Brauer, D.D.S.
For Dr. Joy Brauer, it is all about helping people improve the appearance of their smile. Whether it is dental implants and dental veneers or orthodontics, teeth whitening or a full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Brauer is focused on giving anyone the smile they have dreamed of. Plastic surgery and care for patients is a family affair for Dr. Brauer, whose father was a plastic surgeon. He would take her with him on emergency calls, showcasing the care and attention warranted with these sorts of medical emergencies. It’s an experience she keeps with her to this day. “I study my craft, cosmetic dentistry, daily because I have the desire to be one of the best in my field,” she says. "My passion for creating beautiful smiles is sewn in my heart. I believe it is something I was born to do and something that I do to remain close to my father that passed away when I was 17 years old. This isn’t just a job for me. It is my passion." - joyfulsmilesaz.com
