Joel Henriod D.D.S., M.H.S.
Dr. Henriod is a periodontist—a specialist who takes care of gum disease and dental implants.
Dr. Henriod received his DDS degree from the renowned UCLA School of Dentistry and was the Chief Resident during his Periodontic Residency at the Medical University of South Carolina. Because periodontics is an ever changing field continual learning is a cornerstone of his dental practice.
He’s a Diplomate of the prestigious American Board of Periodontology. He was certified by them after passing a comprehensive and rigorous examination process covering all phases of gum disease and its treatment, including dental implants.
In addition to being board-certified in periodontics Dr. Henriod is certified in LANAP (laser periodontal surgery), a minimally invasive alternative to regular periodontal surgery (gum disease surgery) and he is certified in oral and IV sedation, as well.
He not only stays on top of the latest gum grafting techniques through continuing education, but he’s also an innovator in minimally invasive gum grafting. Respected by his peers as one of the top periodontists in the area, he teaches periodontists and other dentists about implant surgery, bone grafting techniques and minimally invasive gum grafting. From 2008 to 2012 he made presentations and gave over 80 lectures to dental clinicians around the country.
Dr. Henriod, who was voted Top Dentist two years in a row by readers of Pasadena Magazine, loves making mouths healthier through periodontal treatment and helping fearful patients realize that modern surgical dentistry is more comfortable and less invasive than ever. He is passionate about giving his patients the best care every time he sees them.
His hope is that each patient feels how much he cares about them and that he tries his very best to give them a smile that they can be proud of.
