Meet the Doctor
Joshua T. Pogue, D.M.D.
Joshua and his wife, Lisa, have three children (Owen 4, Audrey 2, Tyler 1). Joshua was raised in Oneida, Illinois. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Philosophy from Marquette University. Following undergrad, he served his community as a social worker. In 2007, he joined the United States Marine Corps. Joshua served his country as a logistics officer, which included a 12-month tour to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. After his service, Joshua graduated, with honors, from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. Upon completion of his studies, Joshua and Lisa returned to the Quad City Area to raise their children closer to extended family. Joshua is very excited to fulfill his childhood dream of owning a dental practice. Joshua is equally excited to continue his service to the Bettendorf community by providing gentle, pain-free treatment with modern techniques and high-quality dentistry. Joshua and his family are looking forward to meeting current and new patients!
Robert L. Byrum, D.D.S.
When Dr. Byrum was ten years old he told his dentist, Dr. Hand, that he would take over his practice, and he did so 21 years later. From the first day through the last, Dr. Byrum has prided himself in providing the highest quality of dentistry possible. From various letters of gratitude to the unprompted hug of a child following dental treatment, it is this which will provide him heartwarming memories in the years to come. These kind gestures are among the real treasures of life.
"We have been so thankful for all the love, support and trust you have given us throughout the years, so much in fact that my greatest challenge has been in making sure I find the perfect replacement for me to trust your dental needs with. I have carefully evaluated several qualified candidates who were interested in assuming my practice. From that elite pool I have selected Dr. Joshua T. Pogue whom I believe possesses the highest qualifications, is extremely well-skilled in all phases of dentistry and has the same professional, personal and family values that this practice was built on. It is with my confidence in Josh that I highly recommend you continue treatment here at Pleasant Valley Dentistry where you will continue to be greeted and welcomed by the same great familiar team. Although I will be retiring from dentistry, Bonnie and I will continue with our daily personal lives right here in the Quad Cities and are confident you will be very pleased with your dental experiences now that Josh is at the helm." - Dr. Robert L. Byrum
