We are excited that Dr. Joel Sayre joined our practice this summer. Joel started at WMPD in early June and has been a great addition to our team. Please welcome Joel if you see him at the office or around town.
Here is Joel’s bio:
Dr. Joel Sayre was born and raised in Montana, where he graduated from the University of Montana. He went on to dental school, attending Oregon Health Sciences University and graduated in 2000. Dr. Sayre completed a general practice residency at the University of Minnesota and then practiced general dentistry for three years in Washington and Colorado. In 2004, Dr. Sayre recognized that he enjoyed caring for children and returned to school, specializing in children’s dentistry. He graduated from the pediatric dental residency at UCLA in Los Angeles, California in 2006 and moved his young family to Bozeman, Montana where he founded a pediatric dental practice. He grew the business into a thriving practice and became very involved in the community, while also obtaining his board certification by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. After over 10 years of service, he sold his practice in Bozeman and took a sabbatical to spend more time with his family and re-evaluate his life ambitions.
Joel and his wife, Kristin, have been married 17 years and have four children, Clarissa, Grayson, Clayton and Chet. They are an active family, spending their time outdoors while enjoying a variety of sports. As a family, they have traveled extensively throughout Asia, Africa and Europe. Joel has used his dental skills in many places around the world to serve those most in need. He strives to make his professional and personal life a reflection of his faith in Christ. He is looking forward to beginning a new adventure in Holland, Michigan and serving the communities of western Michigan.
