Meet Dr. Josie Dovidio, DDS


As a dentist, Dr. Dovidio loves helping her patients and making their experience more comfortable, as opposed to an event to dread. Her goals are to create long-term relationships between our team and our patients that establish a sense of trust based upon our tradition of warmth and caring, provide dental services and techniques with an emphasis on patient education and prevention, and do both at a level higher than our patients have ever experienced.

Our Mission


We like our patients to feel at home when they come to our office – to enter as patients and leave as friends. Our purpose is to provide quality care for the entire family, with the advantages of modern technology paired with the comfort of an old-town private practice.

Are you open on Saturdays?

We recognize that our patients lead busy lives and occasionally it's simpler to see a dentist on a Saturday so as not to interfere with work or school. Emergencies can also happen, and they don't always happen during regular office hours! If you need to be seen on Saturday, we have teamed up with another provider who is happy to help our patients.

While Dr. Dovidio and Dr. Yaftaly are not in the office on Saturdays, Dr. Maria Dolores Austria works in our office and sees patients by appointment. Her practice is separate from ours, but she is available for our patients who need Saturday appointments. You can reach Dr. Austria at (805) 907-5568.
