Hi, I’m Dr. Joanna Jefferson. I am your general dentist here at Tooth Love. I am an Orange County native, born and raised in Anaheim. After graduating from Canyon High School, I attended USC for both undergrad and dental school.
Fun fact: I was voted “Most School Spirit” in the dental school yearbook (Fight On!).
I now live in Irvine with my husband, Tim, and our cat, Bob. I am often asked why I decided to become a dentist. I think the biggest influence was the confidence I gained after my braces came off. That’s a feeling I want to help other people achieve. Being shut down for three months during 2020 gave me a lot of time to think about how I want to practice dentistry. I wanted my future office to be more streamlined and use greener practices. From modern technology like the Itero intraoral scanner to basics like bamboo paper towels, I hope you notice the changes we’re making to reduce waste while increasing your quality of care. I can’t wait for you to see the place!
