Joann Toy, DDS

Pediatric Dentist

Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana  I hope to bring my Southern Hospitality to my office and patients.I  obtained my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mathematics from Tulane University and my DMD degree from Washington University School of Dental Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.  I was the recipient of the outstanding senior student in Pediatric Dentistry in Dental School.


During Dental school, I  found I loved working with children and went on to  complete my Pediatric Dentistry Residency from the University of Nebraska School of Dentistry in Lincoln, Nebraska. While visiting San Francisco on vacation, I fell in love with the city, people, diversity, and culture and decided this is where I would like to live.  After moving here, I was an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of San Francisco Dental School where I taught Pediatric Dentistry to junior and senior dental students. I worked at numerous dental practices and finally decided to settle in private practice in Daly City, California.


I embrace my profession because I love working with children in helping them have a good dental experience. My goal is to be a positive influence in their lives and encourage them to take pride in their dental health.  I am committed in building long term relationships built on trust, understanding, and compassion. I try and provide the best possible treatment for your child while helping them be comfortable. I treat each child as how I would like my own children to be treated with warmth, respect, understanding, and kindness.


I am married with two grown children.  My son is a singer and my daughter was an elite gymnast and member with the LSU Gymnastics team.  In my spare time, I enjoy watching them perform, traveling, and shopping.
