About Dr. Foxson
Dr. Joshua Foxson was inspired to pursue oral surgery after seeing the benefits that dentistry brings to others. He was intrigued about surgical procedures during dental school and knew that positively impacting patients’ lives through oral surgery was his calling. Dr. Foxson was exposed to the oral surgery field when he was volunteering in third-world countries, which furthered his passion for helping others. When he established Naperville Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, he wanted to provide the latest and greatest in a comfortable, family-friendly setting.
To Dr. Foxson, the most rewarding thing about being an oral surgeon is seeing patients after treatment with smiles on their faces. He takes the time to listen to each patient and explains the process thoroughly so that patients know exactly what to expect.
