About the Doctor


Joseph F. Karpinski, Jr., D.D.S.



I am excited to say I have been in private practice for the past 31 years. My passion is to provide my patients with the highest level of care. I strive to motivate, educate, and treat our family of patients in a manner that will allow them to maintain their teeth for the rest of their lives.  We provide a gentle and comfortable atmosphere, so you will always feel welcomed. My staff and I hope you will feel free to communicate your needs, as it is an important part of patient satisfaction.


I graduated from Loyola University, Chicago School of Dentistry on 1988.  I completed the General Practice residency at Montefiore Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. in 1989.

I am a member of the American Dental Association, New York State Dental Association, Pierre Fauchard Society, and Academy of General Dentistry.


I am a native of Auburn, NY and the oldest of 6 children.  My father, and three of my siblings are also in the dental field.  I am a proud father of 2 beautiful children, Lauren and Colin. Out of the office, I love running and competing in local events. I am presently training to qualify for the Boston Marathon.  My other passions are Boy Scout activities with my son, the Boston Red Sox, reading, classical music and enjoying time with my family and friends.  "As my dear father once stated, if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life". Those words ring true each and every day.  I am in a practice with wonderful people, who have entrusted my staff and I to meet and exceed their dental care needs.  After 31 years of practice, perhaps the teeth look the same, but it is the heart and souls attached to these mouths that make my vocation so wonderful and challenging. As always, I welcome the privilege of caring for you and your families.
