Dr. Joe Medellin, DDS
I like helping people. Whether they are in pain or just unhappy with their smile, I know that when we are done, they will feel happier and look better!
Dr. Medellin is a native of Bogota, Colombia, where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS) from Colombian Republic University. He then went on to study orthodontics for an additional three years at The Dental and Orthodontic Association for Research and Teaching in Mexico.
Dr. Medellin moved to California 22 years ago, and while he waited to validate his dental license in the US, he worked as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant. During this time, he also worked as a quality control supervisor at a dental lab. In 2011, Dr. Medellin relocated to the San Fernando Valley, where he met his wife, started a family, and opened OrthoGrace Dental in Northridge. Dr. Medellin is a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Medellin and his wife, Yvette, have two beautiful children, Isabella and Max, and they love spending time together as a family. Dr. Medellin also enjoys playing basketball and watching soccer.
