Meet our Dentists
David Konikoff, D.D.S.
Born and raised in Norfolk, David is a product of Granby High School, the University of South Carolina, Old Dominion University, and the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry where he received his D.D.S. Dr. Konikoff opened his first office in Virginia Beach in 1980 and now has offices in that city, as well as in Chesapeake and Suffolk. In addition to his skills as a dentist and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Konikoff’s success can be attributed to his love for people, his engaging and humorous style around the office, and the respect with which he treats his staff and patients alike. Never one to take himself too seriously, Dr. Konikoff has been known to don costumes or wear cartoon character-embroidered shirts to make people, especially children, feel comfortable in the dental chair. David enjoys life with his family, golf and water sports in his leisure time.
Mason Campbell, D.D.S.
Dr. Campbell earned her B.S. degree at the University of Richmond and her D.D.S. from the Medical College of Virginia. A Lynchburg, VA native, Campbell joined us in 2008 and now calls Virginia Beach her home. Dr. Campbell loves her job, especially working with all types of people to create new smiles; she believes that you need to be both a science maven and an artist to create winning smiles. When not in the office, Campbell enjoys running, travel of any kind, hanging at the beach and playing the violin.
Emily Dimitrioff, D.D.S.
Patients aren’t the only ones attracted to our practice for its high standards. Dr. Emily Dimitroff, DDS, joined Konikoff Dentistry because she upholds the same values and commitment to her patients. “I don’t ever want to practice anywhere else,” Dimitroff says. “This is my forever dental home. I love the energy here.” Raised in West Virginia, Dr. Dimitroff earned her DDS from the West Virginia University School of Dentistry. She entered dental school while working on her bachelor’s of science degree at Fairmont State University in West Virginia. Dr. Dimitroff came to Konikoff after practicing dentistry for five years in the Hampton Roads area. When she’s not hard at work in the office, you can find Dr. Dimitroff spending time with her family and kayaking. Her husband, a teacher, loves to cook for her and their daughter. Self-described foodies, the couple loves to try new dishes and experiment with barbecue recipes and techniques.
Joseph C. Dobson, III, D.D.S.
Joe is a graduate of Virginia Military Institute with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. He followed that up with a D.D.S. degree from the Medical College of Virginia, where he graduated Cum Laude. In spite of what appears to be a very focused and disciplined background, Dr. Dobson is known for his easy-going manner and love for his patients. Joe made Konikoff Dentistry his first job upon graduation in 1999. He appreciates how we act like a smaller practice with personal attention in spite of our large practice. Dr. Dobson enjoys the artistry of his profession, as well as helping people feel better and having a pleasant dental experience. In his spare time, Joe enjoys boating and fishing, even fabricating his own tackle.
Michele Mattioli, D.M.D.
Born and raised in Landisville, NJ, Michele has settled down in the more temperate and laid back lifestyle of Virginia Beach. After earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Glassboro State College (NJ), she obtained her Doctor of Medical Dentistry from the Medical University of South Carolina. She also served a year of residency at Veterans Administration Medical Center in West Haven, CT. Dr. Mattioli wanted to be a dentist from an early age, and dentistry allows her two important advantages: to make a real difference in the health of her patients, and be able to spend quality time with her family. To that end, Michele enjoys the beach, backpacking, camping and hiking. She’s even a scuba diver.
Joshua Miranda, D.M.D.
A Virginia Beach native, Joshua earned his B.S. in Chemistry from the College of William and Mary, his D.M.D. from Boston’s Tufts University and A.E.G.D. from the LMC Department of Dental Medicine. Prior to joining Konikoff Dentistry, Dr. Miranda served his residency in Flagstaff, Arizona on a Navajo Indian Reservation. He met his wife, Dr. Seema Chawla-Miranda (fortunately for us, also practicing at Konikoff Dentistry!), at Tufts. They live in Virginia Beach. Joshua was inspired to be a dentist from a young age. His pediatric dentist was a very kind-hearted individual, and he tries to emulate his kind and caring approach. In his spare time, you can find Joshua playing the soprano saxophone, out on the golf course or spending time with his family.
Krystie Niver, D.D.S.
With her years of experience and commitment to patient care, Dr. Krystie Niver’s work ethic and passion fit perfectly at Konikoff Dentistry. Dr. Niver joined Konikoff because she wanted to work in a practice that thrives on its collaborative environment. Dr. Niver enjoys working with other dentists, sharing ideas and staying abreast of new techniques. “All these strategies ultimately benefit patient care,” she said. Born and raised in Long Island, NY, Dr. Niver graduated from the University of Rochester with two bachelor degrees: psychology and biology. She left the east coast for the west coast where she attended dental school at University of California, San Francisco. An East Coast native at heart, she and her husband, a periodontist, moved back to pursue their careers and raise a family. Dr. Niver loves living in Hampton Roads for its great access to the outdoors and surrounding waterways. When she’s not busy at the office, she and her husband love to travel, camp and take their young daughter to the beach.
Dina Pearl, D.D.S.
Dr. Dina Pearl is a graduate of both Medical College of Virginia and Virginia Commonwealth University. A New York transplant, she moved here over 20 years ago and now calls Chesapeake, Virginia home. Earning patient trust, providing quality dental care and maintaining long term dental relationships are Dr. Pearl’s priority. She joined Konikoff Dentistry because she believes in our philosophy that any dentist can brighten your teeth, but her goal is to brighten your day as well – and she works to do just that. Dr. Pearl stays very busy competing in triathlons (that’s the one where you bicycle, swim and run!) and she holds a 1st Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. Dr. Pearl is married with two energetic sons.
