LIFESTYLEWITHJOY, INC came into full volition in 2014 by Joy E. Dorotheo. The company began its humble journey at Total Health Inc., previously located on California Avenue. LSWJ rented a room at this weight loss clinic to provide non-invasive treatments to clients. Once Total Health, Inc closed their doors, LSWJ had the opportunity to rent a larger space Inside Smile Studio Dental Office, located on Coffee Road. This became the home of LSWJ for a few years more before moving to our current location in the southwest area of Bakersfield. LIFESTYLEWITHJOY, INC. (LSWJ) is now located along Gosford Road, near District Boulevard. We are truly appreciative of the support from our Kern County community and wish to provide our neighbors, friends, and family encouragement to live a lifestyle that is full of joy.
WHO IS LIFESTYLE WITH JOY, INC?
Joy E. Dorotheo
Joy E. Dorotheo is the heart and soul of LSWJ, INC. She created this company with a desire to help others and encourage those to live a healthier lifestyle; counseling those who want the advice to strengthen their body, mind, and spirit. Her exposure to the medical field comes from her background education in dentistry. She then migrated to the United States from the Philippines and was challenged to chase the American Dream. The move to a new country redirected her aspirations in life.
She became a licensed insurance agent, licensed real estate agent, and launched her own business known as FJS Financial Services, where she worked as real estate loan originator. As soon as her husband, Dr. Noel, became a licensed dentist, she and her husband, opened Laurel Canyon Dental Care, Inc. to serve the residents of North Hollywood and the neighboring cities. Once she and her family relocated to Bakersfield, California, she and Dr. Noel opened the doors to Columbus Dental Care Inc. After the clinic was established, she reintroduced herself as a realtor and inaugurated Homewide Realty and Financial Services. Joy continued to manage the dental clinic and run her real estate business for years, as she earned her Doctor of Theology degree in Biblical Counseling.
Her quest for education did not stop there. Dr. Joy’s true journey began when she studied to become a Registered Radiofrequency Ultrasonic Cavitation Specialist through the National Certification Medical Association. Now, she continues to help people find their dream home, counsels those who need a listening ear, and provides non-invasive body contouring services to those who want it. Her desire to help people has truly come full circle with LSWJ, INC; which is to ultimately help those on their journey towards a healthier lifestyle with joy!
Dr. Noel T. Dorotheo
Dr. Noel T. Dorotheo has more than 20 years experience, specializing in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, and more. He received his doctorate degree from Philippine Dental College and moved to the United States with the hopes of practicing as a dentist. He fulfilled that goal and opened his first clinic for the community of North Hollywood, California. The success from Laurel Canyon Dental Care gave him the opportunity to relocate to the emerging city of Bakersfield where he decided to plant himself in a more familial community. Once he moved to Bakersfield, Dr. Noel decided to open Columbus Dental Office, while practicing at other dental clinics. After years of owning his own practice, he opted to close those doors to spend more time with family. During this time, he continued to build his skill set while working with other dentists. His desire to have his own practice continued to cultivate and he decided to rebuild again. Dr. Noel, along with his wife and business partner Joy, are thrilled to work together to serve the community they love.
