“I am not here to judge you. My job is to help you. I have been a dentist for some time, and I have seen it before and can fix it.”

Dr. Deborah Joyner, or “Dr. Deb” as she’s known to her patients, grew up in the Marion / Cedar Rapids area and followed in her father’s footsteps to become one of the best local dentists. She’s passionate about her work and loves combining the latest technology with genuine care to help patients improve their smiles.

After graduating and working for a husband and wife dental team, she rented space at her dad’s dental practice before opening her own practice in 2000. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Joyner believes in doing dentistry differently – where you’re in charge of your health, and she’s your partner for a beautiful, healthy smile!

She loves creating long-term relationships with her patients and helping them maintain their teeth and gums for a lifetime. In her free time, Dr. Joyner enjoys spending time with her kids, cooking for the family, being outdoors, and watching volleyball.

Eileen Tosh
Dental Hygienist

Eileen is from Northeast Iowa and grew up in a large family. She's the eleventh child and now has grown children of her own and loves helping people.

When considering a career, Eileen thought about nursing or teaching but chose the dentistry field because it combines elements of both. The best part of her job is assisting patients with preventing and treating oral disease to improve their overall health.

Outside of the office, Eileen enjoys spending time with her family, baking, sewing, gardening, listening to vinyl records, and tending to her backyard chickens. Her favorite quote is, "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience."

In addition, she and the entire team are committed to learning new techniques that improve patient care for faster, more effective, and more comfortable dental procedures.
