Dr. Josh Eastham
Meet Your Friendly, Trusted, Grand Junction Dentist
Dr. Josh knew he wanted to make a career in the healthcare field at a young age because he loved the idea of helping others live a healthy lifestyle and truly enjoy life to the fullest. When he was studying at University of Iowa he found his passion was in dentistry after having spent many clinical hours shadowing different healthcare professionals. While shadowing a family friend at his practice, Dr. Josh knew he had discovered his true passion in dentistry. The combination of science and art and specifically having the opportunity to heal with his hands was the perfect fit. Dr. Josh also loves to meet new people and develop relationships, helping others to achieve healthy smiles.
Outside of dentistry Dr. Josh enjoys spending time with his wife Emily, daughter Ellie, and their two dogs Lilly and Frisbee. His hobbies include fly fishing, ultimate frisbee, ice hockey, running, and golfing- though not as well as he would always like! Dr. Josh is very excited to be a member of the Grand Junction Community and to get to know you all!
