Portage Mi Dentist Joey Farkash

Joey Farkash, DDS

Dr. Joey Farkash is originally from Southern California, and started his dental journey by earning his B.S. in Neurobiology from the University of California Davis.

He then achieved his D.D.S. at The University of Michigan School of Dentistry, graduating in the top 20% of his class while earning two clinical excellence awards; the Comprehensive Care Award and the Caulk/Dentsply Prosthodontics Award - given to only one student each year!

After graduation, Dr. Farkash was one of 3% of dentists selected for a year-long clinical residency at the Veteran’s Hospital in San Antonio. There, he studied complex dental procedures and worked shoulder to shoulder with top specialists tackling complex treatments in dentures, crowns, implants, gum surgeries, cosmetics, and root canals.

Dr. Joey has been working in Ann Arbor, Saline, Kalamazoo, and Los Angeles since finishing his residency. In his most recent position, Dr. Joey worked as an “Exodontist”, handling all oral surgery for six dental offices. With extensive dental experience over the last 9 years, Dr. Joey has been looking for an office that shares his passion for providing high quality dental care and is excited to have found it here.

"The importance of good dentistry reaches far beyond esthetics. There is a growing body of research showing the vital connection between good dental health and overall health. I see my role as a dentist to not only provide dental solutions, but to also be aware of a patient’s health."
