“Dr. Josetta was absolutely phenomenal. She took my anxieties about the dentist into account and assured I was relaxed and comfortable the entire time. She was so sweet and kind! She truly changed my outlook about going to the dentist and I look forward to my future appointments.”
Dr. Josetta DeFrancisco is a “self-inspired” first-generation dentist. She was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, growing up in a big, Catholic Italian family. Her upbringing has shaped her values to always prioritize family, faith, fun, and, of course, food! Her passion for family and personal connections translates to her patient care, where she strives to turn new patients into lifelong friends who feel like family.
Dr. Josetta attended Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine, and after completing dental school attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City to complete her Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program. Here, she discovered her love of cosmetic dentistry, implant placement, and Obstructive Sleep Apnea treatment. Having personally struggled with OSA and watching both her parents struggle with it, she feels called to educate and treat as many people as she can.
While in Kansas City, she met the love of her life, her husband, Keifer. They’ve since moved back to Cleveland to be closer to family and the lake. When not in the office, Dr. Josetta loves traveling, trying new food, exercising, and spending time with her family and her dog, Rieger. She adores being an Auntie to her 2 nieces and 1 nephew and looks forward to one day starting a family of her own.
