Dentist Viewpoint:
Dr. Harvan sees dentistry as a dynamic profession. Implants have opened up a new realm of treatments for the average person. Implants can eliminate all types of removable appliances and change the way dentists think about restoration.  There are more options that are better for the patient and with great rates of success. These are lifetime, long-term solutions that can have an impact on quality of life, cosmetic dentistry and better overall general health.

These new option require advance techniques and control. We can improve your smile with less damage to the natural tooth using more resins and less metal.

  • Occlusion – how the teeth fit together, the bite
  • Implants
  • Aesthetic/Cosmetic Dentistry
  • Root Canals
