Meet Dr. Berley
Oral Surgeon in Plantation
Dr. Joel Berley grew up on the Jersey shore, and as the son of a General Dentist, was interested in dentistry from a young age. From spending time at his father’s office, he learned the importance of going the extra mile for every patient to ensure they are treated with respect, honesty, and careful attention to detail.
He received his BA from Rutgers University as a member of the General Honors Program. He then attended the Harvard School of Dental Medicine where he was exposed to world class educators in a unique learning environment and was able to obtain a strong background in medicine as well as all aspects of dentistry. He continued on for his specialty training at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, NY. The oral and maxillofacial surgical residency at Montefiore is a very selective program renowned for its full scope of surgical and anesthesia training as well as a very heavy focus on implant dentistry and bone grafting.
Dr. Berley’s special interest is in complex implant procedures for individual teeth replacement or full mouth reconstruction. He regularly performs these types of surgeries as well as the hard and soft tissue grafting procedures that are essential to ensuring optimal results. He has lectured on a variety of topics including implants, facial trauma, and oral pathology. His research has focused primarily on the effect of nicotine on implant success and he continues to read and attend lectures on implantology to ensure that he provides the highest level of care to every patient.
It is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to be living in South Florida pursuing his passion of practicing oral surgery. It is his privilege and pleasure to treat every patient with a gentle touch and care for them like they were family. For those with anxiety about surgery, he is happy to provide IV sedation or nitrous to make the experience as easy as possible. He is honored to have taken over for Dr. Mel Krohn who, for over 40 years, embodied this vision of delivering the highest level of care with a compassionate and gentle touch.
When away from the office he enjoys playing guitar, basketball, golf, biking, sculpting, going to the beach, and spending time with his wife Lauren, his two daughters Kira and Ella, and his son Benjamin.
