Meet Dr. Joseph Dufresne

I am truly blessed to live in the community of Blue Ridge and to practice in a profession whose focus is to help others. I believe that my life is all the more rich and enjoyable because I have the opportunity to work in a dental office with an incredible staff and to meet and help so many unique people every day.

Education and Affiliations

I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas School of Dentistry at San Antonio. I pursued my general practice residency at U.S. Army Dental Activity, Fort Jackson, South Carolina. I subsequently practiced dentistry in the military and in private practice for more than 40 years.

I am also the ethics liaison for the Georgia Dental Association.

I am passionate about helping my patients achieve a functional, healthy, and beautiful smile. To that end, I regularly participate in continuing education in all fields of general dentistry.

Personal Life

I am a native of San Antonio, Texas, but I have lived in Georgia for most of my life. My wife Gail and I have resided in Mineral Bluff in recent years, and we are very proud of our four children and four grandchildren.

In my leisure time, I enjoy fly fishing. I also enjoy singing and playing musical instruments and performing with the Young Harris College Community Band.
