Joseph Hufanda, D.D.S. is also a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. He and Dr. Yaste went through dental school together and have known each other since the 8th grade! After graduation, he underwent three years of additional training with the Upper Peninsula Rural Health Services. Dr. Joe (as he is referred to by his patients) has completed continuing education courses in advanced full mouth rehabilitation, aesthetic restorative dentistry, and dental implants.
Dr. Joe speaks frequently to large groups on dental implants and advances in dental technology. He believes that in co-discovery, listening to his patients and building relationships with them is the first step to helping them find the best solution to their problems. Providing his patients with a safe, nurturing and relaxed environment is important to Dr. Joe as many of his patients have dental phobia due to bad dental experiences in the past. For the past 15 years, Dr. Joe has been offering his highly fearful patients Moderate Conscious Sedation and is now certified to provide IV. Recently he and the other doctors at the practice were featured on the Emmy award-winning show “The Doctors”.
Dr. Joe was aware at a young age that dentistry was his calling. Both of his parents were in the medical field and encouraged him to use his talents to make a difference in other peoples lives. Dr. Joe is married to Tatjana and together have and has an adorable son who he is proud to share stories about with his patients. When he is not creating beautiful smiles, Dr. Joe can be found doing all kinds of other creative things with his hands. He has an innate talent for all things artistic and is a talented painter, illustrator, musician, and cook. Team members at the Charlotte Dental Implant Solutions are especially fond of his drawings and personalized, hand-made cards
