Dr. Josiah Clements graduated from the University of Washington Dental School and joined the Islandental team in 2021.
Dr. Clements has always wanted to help people and sees his work in dentistry as an avenue to contribute to the well-being of those in his community. He volunteered for two years with Share a Smile, providing dental care for people without homes.
Drawn to esthetic dentistry, Dr. Clements has been formally recognized for his work in implant dentistry, receiving the Academy of Osseointegration Outstanding Dental Student in Implant Dentistry Award in 2021. He also received the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology Horace Wells Senior Student Award UW’s oral surgery department.
After living in Brazil for several years, Dr. Clements taught Portuguese, as well as English as a Second Language during college.
Dr. Clements spends most of his spare time with his wife and kids, playing at parks, riding bikes, camping, and swimming. In fact, he’s happiest when surrounded by water and loves the ocean. He’s also comfortable around the craziness of large families as he has 11 siblings and 39 nieces and nephews. He loves watching and playing sports: soccer, basketball, and football—Seahawks and BYU Cougars! And he can often be found trying out a new recipe on the grill/smoker, or cooking a favorite Brazilian dish.
