My name is Dr. Joedi Pasut, but you can call me Joedi. I am a proud resident of Flagstaff, Arizona, and an even prouder wife and mother of two girls (TWINS!?). In 2006, after 7 years in Phoenix, my high school sweetheart husband and I realized that we needed to get out of the heat! Always being fond of the pines, we decided Flagstaff was the right place to raise our family. Best. Decision. Ever.
Our family loves everything this wonderful community has to offer… whether it’s hiking Mt. Humphrey’s, camping in the neighboring city of Sedona, biking throughout the urban trails, or and playing with my daughters in the snow… We are always making fabulous memories.
So you may have noticed that my official title is Dr. Joedi Pasut… Well, that’s because I practice the best type of medicine– dentistry. I used to get a lot of, “Why on earth do you want to be a dentist?!” The answer is simple– I have always wanted to help people feel better about smiling. To pursue my dream, I went through A LOT of school… I earned an undergraduate degree from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois and went on to dental school at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. After receiving my doctorate in dental surgery degree, I continued my training and received a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Michigan College of Dentistry.
If you have ever been to Flagstaff, you know that there is a certain vibe of inclusion and friendships. That’s the type of feeling that I try to bring into my business, Alpine Smiles Family Dentistry. I cherish the long-lasting relationships I have built with my patients. I enjoy getting to know my patients and all of their dental needs from a first checkup of two years old teeth, to fillings and regular cleaning visits for everyone. Our patients are friends and family.
I want to change how people feel about going to the dentist. My patients often express that they forget they are in a dental office. WHAT?! #Goals
Thanks for reading my first blog post! I plan to write one every month and cover topics about my experiences as a dentist and share some helpful tips on how you can enjoy your dental experiences as well.
