A native of Delaware County, “Dr. Joe” graduated from Monsignor Bonner High School in 1968. He received his BS in Biology from LaSalle University and went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Temple University School of Dentistry in 1976.
He completed a general practice residency at the Philadelphia General Hospital. Dr. Capista, the founding partner, began practicing in Springfield, and eventually purchased the practice when the senior dentist retired. The practice grew steadily over the years, based on Dr. Joe’s reputation for high-quality dental care and focus on patient comfort and satisfaction.
In 2000, the practice moved to its present location in Broomall and became Williamsburg Dental. After a 45-year career in dentistry, Dr. Capista has retired from performing the clinical part of dentistry at Williamsburg Dental in January 2021. Although he no longer provides treatment, he continues to do examinations and consultations on a limited basis and spends time in the office assisting in the daily operations of Williamsburg Dental.
Dr. Capista is also very active with his church and is on various committees at the Malvern Retreat House and other charitable organizations. His generosity and community spirit were recognized and honored with the Small Business Person of the Year Award from the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Capista resides in Media with his wife, Anne, of over 47 years. He is an avid runner and enjoys working out in the gym, as well as traveling abroad, especially to Italy. He has studied Italian for many years and is now proficient in the language. Joe Capista is recognized for his intense passion, love of life, and ability to influence others in an incredibly positive and memorable way.
