Meet Dr. Blake

Dr. Joel Blake, DMD
General Dentist for kids

Thomas Joel Blake was born and raised in St George, Utah, and was the 5th of eleven children (that may be why he loves working with children so much).

After high school, Dr. Blake went on a two-year mission for his church in Haiti (he speaks a little French and a lot of creole). In 1991 he married Mary Ann, his now wife of 26 years. Dr. Blake concluded his undergraduate studies at Southern Utah University majoring in Zoology and minoring in Chemistry. He then studied dentistry at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida where he received his DMD degree.

Dr. Blake and his young family then moved to Tucson, Arizona where he worked in The Children’s Dental Clinic for the next four years. In 2006, Dr. Blake, Mary Ann, and their four children, Sarah, Adam, Nathan, and Hannah, moved to the lovely Spokane area with which they fell in love.

Dr. Blake loves doing anything that involves being with his family, especially snow skiing and things that are water-related. He also loves traveling with his family when time affords and seeing new places.

Dr. Blake and his family are thankful to be here in the beautiful Northwest and are particularly grateful for the wonderful people here that have helped them make this area home.
