Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist
Meet Dr. Jovas
"I love working with kids every single day! Every kid is different which is a challenging and fun aspect of my job. I love being able to work with your child to create a unique dental experience just for them.”
Born in Atlanta, GA and raised in Fort Smith, AR, Dr. Jovas Booker spent his childhood fostering his creativity.
As he grew, he began to realize his true passion for helping others, and daydreamed about many different careers where he could do so. However, once he began his own orthodontic journey, the lightbulb of inspiration went off!
His orthodontic experience made Dr. Jovas realize that being a dentist would allow him to work in a fun, creative environment and be able to help people along the way.
Along the journey, his parents, family and friends have helped to nourish his dream and always encouraged him to shoot for the stars. Today, Dr. Jovas aims to do the same for his patients!
Showing Love for Our Community
Throughout his educational career, Dr. Jovas always enjoyed volunteering with children. From summer sports camps to tutoring and working with children with special needs, serving children has always been a part of his life.
He loves working around kids, creating a fun and safe environment for them, and teaching them to be themselves and that they can do anything! Today, Dr. Jovas continues volunteering as faculty in the Pediatric Dental Department at his alma mater.
Education & Experience
After growing up in Arkansas, Dr. Jovas moved back to Georgia to attend The University of Georgia in Athens, where he studied biology. While there, he was very involved in service organizations, including Arch Society. From there, he went on to dental school at the Medical College of Georgia.
Dr. Jovas graduated dental school with honors at the top of his class and was a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. Due to his love for kids, pediatric dentistry was a natural progression.
He completed his residency at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia/University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. There he gained the experience and expertise necessary to provide comprehensive dental care for healthy, special needs, and medically complex children in the outpatient and hospital setting.
Outside the Office
Dr. Jovas loves to be active! He spends his free time getting outside, hiking, biking, and running and he’s even a trained yoga teacher.
Dr. Jovas loves using yoga to help others feel energized and empowered through fun (and sometimes sweaty!) classes.
Dr. Jovas LOVES his doodle, Henri, and even brings him into the office. One of his and Dr. Mallory’s top priorities was to have a space their pups could be with them at work. Be sure to say hello if you see them!
