Dr. Joseph Serra
Dr. Joseph Serra was born and raised in Michigan. He attended the University of Michigan for undergraduate studies and graduated from the University Of Detroit School Of Dentistry in 1990.
He opened a general practice in 1991 located in Farmington Hills, then moved to West Bloomfield in 2002. In 1996, he sought out a new avenue for his artistic side. He began to attend advanced post-graduate aesthetic courses at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (www.lviglobal.com). LVI, founded by Dr. William Dickerson, provides many different advanced courses to dentists from around the world.
After taking the core curriculum and becoming an LVI dentist, Dr. Serra was invited to become a clinical instructor at the institute. He has taught various courses there but has focused on the Full Mouth Reconstruction course, which he helped develop that enable dentists to treat cases of advanced decay, trauma, or occlusal dysfunction while also correcting bite problems that can cause problems throughout the body.
Dr. Serra enjoys correcting these problems for his patients through neuromuscular dentistry. His knowledge of this type of dentistry allows him to treat TMJ disorder, which can cause jaw pain, migraine-strength headaches, tinnitus, facial pain, and myriad other debilitating symptoms.
Dr. Serra and his wife, Noreen, live in Novi and are busy raising their two kids. They enjoy sports, especially coaching basketball and playing golf.
