About Us

Dr. Joseph H. Cieslak D.D.S. began his dental career in the United States Air Force as a dental assistant.  He spent six years serving his country stationed in Okinawa two years . He spent the next four years at Andrews Air Force base. He was inspired while working in the oral surgery department and decided he would become a surgeon. He began taking night classes to finish his Degree and then started applying to schools. He proudly became a Buckeye at The Ohio State University. He also had his son Daniel, the first of his three children. Next he went on to attend Charleston's Medical University of South Carolina where he did his Oral Surgery Residency and welcomed his two lovely daughters Elizabeth and Emily into the world.

Dr. Cieslak came to Louisville and fell in Love with the city and it's people. He practiced as a partner for a couple of years and then started the first Louisville Oral Surgery & Dental Implants office on Bardstown Road in November 1996. Dr. Cieslak also has his office in Radcliff KY where he still continues to treat our service members and their families.
