Dr. Carl Gioia

One of the things that Dr. Carl Gioia loves most about being an orthodontist is building relationships with his patients and their families. Seeing his patients grow into young adults during their treatment, and watching his patients’ beautiful new smiles emerge once their braces are removed is extremely rewarding.

Dr. Gioia grew up in Valparaiso, Indiana and earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, where he played football for the Fighting Irish. After appearing in both the Fiesta Bowl and the Sugar Bowl as a place kicker, Dr. Gioia went on to complete his dental training and orthodontics specialty training at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry.

When he isn’t creating beautiful smiles at BracesBracesBraces, Dr. Gioia and his family are always on the go with activities. Dr. Gioia’s wife, Diane, and three children, Collin, Maggie, and Molly, are very involved in numerous sports such as soccer, baseball and basketball, as well as the St. Margaret Mary Catholic Community. During the fall, Dr. Gioia officiates college football on the weekends throughout the country. If you happen to run into Dr. Gioia during the fall, you can be sure that he will always greet you with a smile, even if you don’t agree with his calls.
