Dr. Joanna Meekay is a Northern California native, and grew up in a large Armenian household in Sacramento, California. She received her B.S. in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior from U.C. Davis in 2013. After college, she attended dental school at University of the Pacific, where she was social chair for her class and dental fraternity, Delta Sigma Delta, attended dental mission trips, was a founding member of an advanced treatment planning study club, and a recipient of the Henry Sutro Clinical Excellence Award.

After earning her DDS in 2017, she completed a general practice residency at NYU Langone - Brooklyn. After spending one cold winter in New York City, she came running back to the bay area to complete her pediatric dental residency at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). During this time, she also obtained a M.S. in craniofacial sciences. 

Joanna loves to take her mini poodle on walks in her neighborhood in San Francisco, catch up on podcasts, and play tennis. When she isn't trying new restaurants with friends in the city, you can find her playing hide-and-go seek with her 5 nieces and nephews! Joanna is excited to join the fabulous team at Mills-Peninsula Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics!
