Dr. Latoya Joseph DMD, MPH
Dr. Joseph was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and never thought about leaving the big apple until her senior year of high school. It was when she started her college search that she learned that there actually is a world outside of the concrete jungle and took a leap of faith and moved to South Florida where she attended Barry University as an honor student in the Biology major with chemistry minor.
She loved Florida so much that she decided to permanently trade in the big apple for year-round sunshine and oranges and was accepted to Nova Southeastern University in South Florida to pursue her Doctorate in Dental Medicine and Masters in Public Health. After completing her degree in 2018, fate landed her in Indian River County at Sebastian Dental Spa where she joined Dr. Harold Brooks, DDS, and his wonderful team, where they were voted best dental office in Sebastian both in 2019 and 2020. She knew this was where she wanted to be forever and became full practice owner in January of 2020.
Dr. Joseph’s husband is currently completing his own DMD degree at Nova Southeastern University and when he’s not studying and she’s not working they enjoy running after their energetic two-year-old son Noah, and will be getting even busier with their daughter arriving this winter, making them a family of 4.
Doctor Joseph enjoys engaging with her patients and focusing on building life-long relationships that foster positive outcomes for each patient’s oral-health. She’s an open book and is known for being honest and fair and a really good listener. She looks forward to meeting all of the patients seeking a friendly and gentle dentist.
Dr. Ilon Choai DDS
Dr. Lonny grew up in New York, spending his childhood in Rockland County and Brooklyn. He always had an itch to move down to Florida since he experienced a taste when some family members moved in 2003. He attended college at Stony Brook University, and went on to get his Master’s degree at Rutgers University.
Dr. Lonny graduated from NYU Dental and completed his general practice residency at the Mount Sinai hospital in New York City, where he got a lot of patient care experience during the COVID-19 pandemic. Upon completing residency, he found Dr. Joseph through an ad on the internet and was so excited that he booked a plane ticket and was visiting just a few days later. He immediately fell in love with the office and staff. He is proficient in a variety of dental procedures, and has completed many continuing education courses to advance his skill set and is bringing new exciting procedures to the patients of Sebastian Dental Spa.
Dr. Lonny spends his free time annoying his younger siblings to follow his move to Florida, playing golf, and he is extremely passionate about photography, which he practices both as a hobby and to show patients the progression of their smile! When you meet Dr. Lonny, you will feel comfortable and at ease. He treats each and every patient like they are family with honesty and practicality.
