Dr. Gioche lives for personal transformations inside and outside of dentistry. When he was young, his two front teeth had heavy yellow staining (ﬂuorosis) due to a natural deformation that sometimes occurs during the formation of the tooth. He wouldn’t smile back at people, he would cover up his mouth when he talked, or he would just do his signature closed-lip smile.
Dr. Gioche has taken over 100 hours of Continuing Education as a way to stay committed to his patients. He is dedicated to making sure that you receive the most updated, innovative and comfortable dental care that can be offered. You can usually ﬁnd him geeking out on the latest dental technology.
