Dr. Joseph Mika
After graduating from Youngstown State University, Dr. Mika attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1991. He then completed a General Practice Residency at the Western Reserve Care System in 1993 and entered into private practice at that time. In addition to his private practice, from 1995 to 2005, Dr. Mika also maintained a mobile dental practice which provided dental treatment for area nursing facility residents. While a member of Special Care Dentistry Association and the American Society of Geriatric Dentistry, he completed over 150 hours of continuing education in geriatric dentistry.

Dr. Mika has extensive experience in general dentistry, performing various procedures in the fields of preventive dentistry/oral health, restorative and cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, crown and bridge, implant supported crowns and dentures, prosthodontics (dentures and partials), and endodontics(root canals). The practice of dentistry has seen many changes in the past twenty years, due in large part to technology. Dr. Mika has invested in his practice by bringing this technology to his patients. Not only is his practice run by dental practice management software, but digital radiography, digital photography, soft tissue laser surgery, laser caries detection and CAD/CAM dental restorations are practiced daily.

Dr. Mika is a member of the American Dental Association, the Ohio Dental Association, Corydon Palmer Dental Society and is a Pre-Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry which represents a dedication to lifelong learning and overall oral health for the public. He has achieved Standard Proficiency Certification from the Academy of Laser Dentistry. Dr. Mika also participates in the Dental Options program which provides discounted and donated dental services to qualified individuals in Ohio.

Dr. Mika is married with two sons and a daughter. Besides spending time with his family, he enjoys music and is an avid drummer. He is a diehard fan of The Ohio State Buckeyes and also enjoys running, bicycling, fishing, and hunting.
