Dr. Joyce Hottenstein started her career as a dental assistant in 1979, and after many rewarding years in the field discovered she had a desire to learn more, do more and help more. So, she went back to school to see how far she could get! After completing her undergraduate studies at The University of Arizona in 1994, Joyce went on to receive her dental degree from Boston University School of Dental Medicine in 1998. While attending dental school in Boston, Joyce practiced as a dental hygienist and also learned that her great grandfather had been a dentist. Joyce knew this was her calling.
Dr. Hottenstein has proudly practiced dentistry in the Rutland area since 2000. She is a strong believer in continued learning; she and her team of professionals attend continuing education courses on an ongoing basis to stay current with the latest in dental methods and materials. Caring for the community and the environment is more than a job for Dr. Hottenstein – it is a passion. Joyce’s ultimate goal is to create a caring, welcoming and sustainable environment for people to come feel safe and enjoy high quality dental care.
Joyce is the current Secretary of the Vermont State Dental Society, a member of the ADA, Vermont State Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, Ecodentistry Association, International College of Dentists, the American Equilibration Society, and RV Tucker Study Clubs. She is a Pankey dentist with The Pankey Institute currently working on a one-year Oral Facial Pain continuum. She also maintains active memberships with the DAR and Rotary International.
