Dr. Josh is a Board-Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. As your pediatric dentist, Dr. Josh’s goal is to provide your child with the best dental care possible in the most compassionate way. It is his promise to treat each child as he would his own, and he strives to provide each child with positive experiences that build the foundation for a life-long positive dental outlook. Dr. Josh hopes to do this by creating a fun, warm environment that makes children and parents feel cared for and at-home.


Dr. Josh grew up in Palo Alto, and attended UCLA. After college, he continued his education in dentistry under the bright lights of New York City at NYU College of Dentistry. He then completed a General Practice Residency at the prestigious West LA VA Hospital, where he had the honor and privilege of serving our nation’s veterans. Dr. Josh was able to combine his extensive dental training and passion for working with children by completing a pediatric dental residency at UCLA’s Ronald Reagan Medical Center, where he also conducted dental research and was published as a first author in Nature, Scientific Reports.


After completing his formal training, Dr. Josh practiced in the Upper East Side of Manhattan for 3 years before deciding to move back to California to be closer to family.


Dr. Josh’s hobbies include basketball, video games, pickleball, mixology, smoking meat, gardening, and making his children (aged 6 and 3) laugh. He has a calm, friendly demeanor, and is a free spirit, who is always looking for a new adventure.


He is looking forward to a lifetime of learning and fulfillment that a career in pediatric dentistry provides. Dr. Josh would love nothing more than to grow with the families of Sunnyvale Pediatric Dentistry - getting to know you well and to see your children grow and thrive with each visit!
