Dr.Joy Afif Metheson
Area of Expertise
Joy graduated from Leeds University in 1999 with first class honours.She moved to Dubai in 2006 where she has worked exclusively in private practice treating patients from all walks of life to a very high standard.
Joy’s strengths are putting people at ease and explaining things in a clear and friendly manner so that her patients feel fully involved in their treatment decisions. She strongly believes in the principles of informed consent and ensuring the benefits of any treatments outweigh the risks.
Joy is a perfectionist who prides herself on making things as painless as possible and ensuring her patients are comfortable so that they don’t fear or dread their dental visits. Whilst she has taken her post-graduate training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, she also likes to refer her patients to specialist colleagues if they require something that is beyond her skill set - this ensures they always get the most highly trained person treating them.
Joy has travelled extensively to the USA where she learned how to do smile makeovers with the world famous Dr. Larry Rosenthal in NY and Palm Beach and is a graduate of the highly esteemed Kois Centre restorative programme where she learned to diagnose and treat complex cases predictably. She enjoys General family dentistry as well as more involved work such as treating extreme tooth wear and erosion and feels that restoring worn teeth can be more effective than any facelift and take 10 years off one’s appearance.
Joy lives with her husband and their family of pets in Dubai and enjoys exercise, good food, spending time with friends and is a big animal lover.
