Heather K. Harris
5280 Top Dentist 2008-2012
How long have you been in practice?
I have been practicing for 12 years.
What do you most enjoy about your profession?
I happen to believe that I have the nicest patients anywhere. I get to allay their fears, take away pain, heal and create beauty for them. Even though most people don’t want to go to the dentist, they make me feel very appreciated.
Describe the office environment.
When you first walk in to our office you get the feeling of home. We have a new spacious area that our patients describe as warm and cozy. The environment is very relaxing and makes even the most nervous patient feel at ease. Our staff is friendly and outgoing and always takes the time to make each patient feel important and valued.
Are you accepting new patients?
Yes, we love to see new patients.
Do you have a favorite patient story?
I happened to answer the phone one day, a year ago, when a long term patient that I hadn’t seen in a couple of years said, “Hey, I got a job, so now I’m back!” It was his pride and excitement along with my concern for my dedicated patients that inspired our new Existing Patient Special-- If an existing patient loses their job and thus their ability to pay, they can still come in for a free cleanings until they get back on their feet. I want my patients to know that they can count on me.
