Josef Chencin, DDS
Dr. Josef Chencin brings over 30 years of experience in dentistry to Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding communities. A 1982 graduate of New York University’s College of Dentistry, Dr. Chencin is a native New Yorker who has considered Ft. Lauderdale his home since 1983. Following his graduation from NYU, he completed a general residency at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City and continues to take advanced dental courses today. Dr. Chencin believes in having the latest high-tech equipment and materials and participates in several dental study clubs to stay up-to-date on the advances in dentistry.

As a dentist, it is Dr. Chencin’s goal for every patient to feel comfortable and confident in his care. He and the staff work together to bring you the very best treatment in a relaxed and personal environment. His patients are his number one priority and their care is his main concern, which is obvious from the moment you walk into our office. For your convenience, Dr. Chencin speaks English, Spanish, and Hebrew fluently.

Dr. Chencin’s passion for dentistry came from his father, a dental technician. Dr. Chencin apprenticed with his father during his undergraduate studies and it was there that he began to hone his skills in making crowns, bridges, and dentures. When he opened his own practice, Dr. Chencin understood how important it was to work with the best labs and technicians to create precise results and beautiful smiles. Now he is proud to be a long-standing, exceptional dentist in Fort Lauderdale.

In his spare time, you can find Dr. Chencin with his family, which includes his three sons (Mitch, Brett, and Perry), and his lovely wife Lori. His other hobbies include playing tennis and boating.
