Joseph Wineman has been installed as the 2023-24 president of the Nevada Dental Association.

Wineman grew up in Pittsburgh. A dual Army Scholarship Award recipient for both his undergraduate and dental school education, Wineman graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1981.

Immediately after dental school, Wineman entered the U.S. Army. Wineman completed a two-year Comprehensive Dentistry Residency at Fort Bragg (now Fort Liberty) from 1987-89. While the director of dental services in Wildflecken, Germany, Wineman deployed in December 1990 in support of Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm where he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for his service.

In 1995-97, Wineman earned his master’s in healthcare administration, summa cum laude from Baylor University. After 26 and a half years of service to his country and successful completion of successive leadership posts of increasing responsibility, Wineman retired with the rank of colonel with The Army Surgeon’s General “A” Designator acknowledging his excellence in comprehensive dentistry.

Upon retirement in September 2002, Wineman settled in Southern Nevada and purchased a practice in Henderson, where he works full time. He was the first dentist to be awarded a dental license via his impressive credentials.

Wineman has served as president of the Southern Nevada Dental Society, chairperson of the Southern Nevada Peer Review Committee, and is the continuing education chair for the Nevada Academy of General Dentistry.

He volunteers his free time to the Give Kids a Smile program, Freedom Day USA, Southern Nevada’s Day of Dental Service, Tzu Chi Foundation, and mentoring UNLV dental school students.

He also serves as a founding member of the Nevada Dental Foundation Board of Directors, which is establishing a dental clinic in Tonopah.
