About Dr. Foncea
Dr. Pablo Foncea graduated with honors from Boston University in 1997. He began practicing dentistry in South Carolina with a well-respected cosmetic practice, but a desire to be closer to the mountains, prompted a move to Knoxville in 2001. He has practiced comprehensive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry in Tennessee ever since.
One of the things that make Dr. Foncea’s dentistry unique is his artistic skill and ability. Outside of the office Dr. Foncea enjoys pencil and charcoal sketching, and photography. This artistic edge separates his dentistry from others. He sees his dental work as an extension of his love of art and delights in the artistic challenges he encounters while making custom dentures and smile designs.
With over 20 years of experience focused on cosmetic smile design and healthy tooth restoration he has had the privilege of creating new smiles for local celebrities and restoring healthy teeth to families of all ages. Featured as the dental expert on WBIR, Dr. Foncea was also the dentist for Knoxville’s Extreme Makeover -2004 on WBIR’s Style show. In 2013, he was named as a “Top Dentist in America”
For Dr. Foncea, life is too short to allow it to happen to you. He seizes the opportunity to live life to the fullest and enjoys helping others reach their potential by helping them regain their confidence with a healthy smile.
He believes his dental skill allows him the opportunity to impact lives both in the office and as a donated service. He and his office team created a Smiles for Veterans program that has provided free and discounted care for Veterans over the past 3 years. He has also enjoyed providing dental care at the Prince of Peace Girls home in Guatemala, and with Baptist Medical and Dental International in Honduras and Nicaragua.
Dr. Foncea continues to stay abreast of the latest dental techniques and obtains over three times the hours required to maintain a license in Tennessee. He is member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Tennessee Dental Association and the local Second District Dental Society.
