About Dr. Joyce

Belmont Pediatric Dentist

For a long time, Dr. Joyce wanted to be a kids' art teacher when she grew up. However, inspired by her mentors and instructors throughout middle and high school, Dr. Joyce also developed a strong interest in biology and science. As a result, she went on to study Biochemistry and Cell Biology at the University of California, San Diego where she graduated Cum Laude.

Why She Became a Pediatric Dentist

Realizing that dentistry is the perfect blend of art and science, Dr. Joyce went on to pursue her Doctorate degree in Dental Surgery from the UCLA School of Dentistry. Dr. Joyce then chose Pediatric Dentistry as her specialty because it allowed her to fulfill her childhood dream of becoming a teacher to children—but instead of art, she now gets to teach them how to take care of their oral health!

After serving as a Resident Pediatric Dentist at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and completing her specialty training with honors in pediatric restorative dentistry, Dr. Joyce returned to the Bay Area and has been caring for children’s oral health in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost a decade now.

Outside the Office

In her free time, Dr. Joyce’s commitment as an engaged dental provider has led her from lobbying for her profession in D.C. to providing care to the underserved population in Mexico, Guatemala, and at our local Samaritan House in the Peninsula.

Beyond dentistry, Dr. Joyce loves practicing yoga, experimenting with new recipes, and hiking in the great outdoors. Most of all, she loves going on all sorts of big and little adventures with her beloved husband and son!
