H2Orthodontics is very excited to bring Dr. Joe Moon into the practice to provide top quality orthodontic care to the Olathe and Overland Park Offices. Like Dr. Harman, Dr. Moon enjoys the same values and philosophy in human care, concern, and is also highly aligned with the technological advancements that many of you have enjoyed, such as robotic-assisted orthodontic therapy (SURESMILE), and digital modeling via Itero scanning which avoids impressions in most cases.
Dr. Moon was born in Manhattan, KS and raised in nearby Junction City, KS by his parents who migrated from Korea in 1976 in search of the American Dream. Hard work and determination allowed them to achieve that dream which has given Dr. Moon the opportunity to pursue his own dreams. He graduated as the valedictorian of his high school class and after receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Kansas, Dr. Moon made the decision to change direction and pursue a career in dentistry. He obtained an Ivy League dental education at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia, PA where he finished at the top of his class and also served as President of his class the entire 4 years of his attendance.
One of his greatest achievements while in dental school, though, was that he met his future wife, Beverly, who happened to be a classmate of his. After dental school, Dr. Moon and his wife both completed General Practice Residencies in New York City and then relocated to Dallas, TX to practice dentistry. After gaining invaluable experience as a general dentist, Dr. Moon decided to change direction one more time and moved to Minneapolis, MN where he received his orthodontic specialty training and Master’s Degree at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Moon became highly trained in the state of the art technologies already referenced and his research in the technological advances in digital modeling has been published in several journals.
After completing his training, Dr. Moon moved his family back home to Kansas and has been practicing orthodontics in the Kansas City metro area for the last several years. His wife, Dr. Beverly Moon, practices general dentistry in Lenexa, KS. He is very involved in the community both personally and professionally. One example of his dedication and involvement is his service as the President of the Kansas Association of Orthodontists in 2016. He, his wife, and three daughters (Isabel (5), Sophia(3), and Grace (1)) have planted their roots firmly in Overland Park and look forward to growing with all of you over the years.
