Dr. Sydney Joyce (Unzicker) comes from a family with a dental background. Her mother has been enjoying a career as a dental hygienist for over 25 years. Dr. Sydney knew from an early age that people do not like going to dentists, and many people have high anxiety associated with dentistry.
Dr. Sydney was determined to become the type of dentist that people want to visit: gentle, caring, and kind.
Dr. Sydney completed her training at UNMC and spent time working at Indian Reservations and People’s Health Centers. Those experiences allowed her to give back to the community and to gain invaluable experience working with many patients with complicated dental needs. 
Dr. Sydney Joyce (Unzicker) performs gentle dentistry with a focus on cosmetic dentistry, including mercury-free dental fillings, and extreme smile makeovers. She also provides a better quality of life to patients losing their teeth by making implant retained dentures. Her goal is to keep Dentistry affordable by accepting all the primary dental plans and offering dental payment plans.

We are looking forward to you meeting cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sydney Joyce (Unzicker,) at one of your visits.

Can you tell us about your family in a few sentences?

My mother is a dental hygienist and peaked my interest in dentistry at a young age.  My father is the proudest parent and the first one to hand out my business card at an event.  I have a younger sister who looks just like me.  I love children and am excited to have a family of my own someday.

 Why do you love being a dentist?

love getting to know my patients and their families.  It’s wonderful to watch children and families grow through years of providing dental care.

How can you impact the overall health of your patients by being a dentist?

High self-esteem is essential for mental health and success.  A great smile can transform a patient’s confidence and improve self-esteem.

What are your favorite techniques to make patients feel comfortable during treatment?

I always want a patient to know they are in control during an appointment.  By just raising your hand during a procedure you are always welcome to ask a question or take a break.

What is your proudest accomplishment?

My dental degree.

How do you spend your free time?

I spend my free time reading, cooking, or traveling.

Best anti-aging advice?

Stay active.  Whether lifting weights or a leisurely evening stroll, staying active leads to a long, healthy life.
