Meet The Doctor

Joel A. Lanie , DDS

Dr. Joel Lanie was born and raised on the south side of Indianapolis. He graduated from Indiana University with High Distinction in Biology, and again from Indiana University School of Dentistry at IUPUI.  He is a member of the Sonar Study Club (the local chapter of the prestigious Seattle Study Club), the ADA, IDA, and IDDS.  Dr. Lanie currently lives in Indianapolis with his wife Ashley and his daughter, Everly.

In his free time, Dr. Lanie enjoys running, mountain biking, landscaping, gardening, and spending time with his family and friends.  He and his wife both enjoy traveling and trying new things (particularly food!)

Since starting Lanie Family Dentistry after taking over for Dr. George Kopko, Dr. Lanie has received the warmest of welcomes from the Bargersville community and existing patients at the office.  Dr. Lanie enjoys providing thorough, compassionate, gentle care for patients of all ages; showing those with a “dental apprehension” that dental care does not have to be a painful experience.  There is nothing more rewarding than a smiling patient!

Dr. Lanie continues to further his education and training in order to better serve his patients. In 2013, he completed additional training of Lumineers, which is a more conservative approach to full veneers. In 2014, Dr Lanie completed training in Six Month Smiles, a clear braces system. On average Dr. Lanie earn 2-3 times the required continuing education required by the state every cycle.
