About Our Practice
For over a decade, Dr. Elizabeth A. Joseph has provided patients from across the Wilkes-Barre area with compassionate, gentle dental care. Dr. Joseph graduated from dental school at Temple University in 2005 and opened her own practice two years later. Our original location was in Kingston, PA, and we moved into our current location in downtown Wilkes-Barre in January 2014. Our new office has been completely remodeled to ensure our patients receive the highest quality modern dental care.
Meet Elizabeth A. Joseph, DMD
A native of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Dr. Joseph grew up in Laurel Run and graduated from James M. Coughlin High School, Wilkes-Barre, in 1997. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Temple University, Philadelphia, in 2001. Dr. Joseph went on to achieve her dental degree from Temple University School of Dentistry in 2005. Since graduation, she has consistently applied herself to continuing education so she can provide her patients the latest treatment options and techniques in the field.

She is also a member of both the Pennsylvania Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

Committed to Caring Services & Patient Satisfaction
Dr. Joseph’s goal as a dentist is to create a respected dental practice where patients feel comfortable and confident about the quality of dental care received. She focuses a great deal on the prevention of dental disease through patient education, and works to be sure her patients have all the tools and knowledge necessary to maintain oral health. She takes pride in her brand new office, which is very modern and is fully equipped with new equipment and the latest technology.
When not in the office, Dr. Joseph most enjoys spending time with her family, especially her daughter. She also enjoys a good glass of wine and travelling whenever possible.

Shelby Goss, RDH
I attended Luzerne County Community College where I received my Certificate of Specialization in Dental Assisting, in 2016. Continuing my education at Luzerne County Community College for Dental Hygiene, I received an Associate in Applied Science in Dental Hygiene, in 2018. While employed, I attended Pennsylvania College of Technology receiving a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene, in 2019. I have a CPR certification that I maintain by taking a hands-on refresher course every two years. I take continuing education courses to stay fresh on topics and expand my knowledge of the ever-advancing field. Throughout my time in the dental field, I have spent a great deal of time among the Luzerne County Community at different daycares and school districts educating children. I am passionate about providing optimal education with quality care to individuals of all ages in the community. I am grateful to apply my skills and knowledge at Dr. Elizabeth Joseph’s practice.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son doing outdoor activities. One of our personal favorite spots in the area is at the Lands of Hillside for ice cream. Monthly trips to Knoebels Amusement Resorts during the season is another family activity we enjoy. We currently have a goal to visit different beaches each year for our annual trip. We have most recently taken an interest in family camping, with intentions to expand our experiences in that area.
