Meet the Doctors

Dr. Collantes

During a visit to the dentist in her teens, Dr. Jo-ann Collantes had a eureka moment which sparked an interest in Dentistry. “I had a fractured front tooth and after it was restored, I felt a surge of confidence and I thought to myself that this is what I want to do and help people feel good and confident about themselves.” Since then, it has developed into a lifelong passion for Dentistry.

Dr. Collantes earned her DDS degree from the University of Colorado in Denver in 2011 and was awarded the American College of Dentists Outstanding Leader Award. She has been practicing as a general dentist and has special interest in Endodontics and Implant Dentistry. She is a member of American Dental Association and American Academy of General Dentistry and was awarded a fellowship by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

At leisure, she enjoys time with her husband and their two beloved dogs. She likes to play table tennis, experience travel, immerse in different cultures and watch documentaries.
