Dr. Joseph Illustre received his DDS from the University of Illinois in Chicago. He graduated with high honors in the top of his class and was inducted into the very prestigious Omicron Kappa Epsilon dental national honor society. Following five years of practice as a sedation dentist for a pediatric dental office in Houston, he completed a post-doctoral anesthesiology residency program through the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva in New York. This training consisted of rotations through obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, pediatrics, and the Center for Oral, Facial, and Head Pain at Columbia University, and the Rose F. Kennedy University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. His extensive training allows him to successfully manage and treat complex patients with special needs and provide the ultimate experience of comfort for his patients. Dr. Illustre now resides in Houston with his wife and family, and enjoys the occasional round of golf.
