My Story

How did you arrive at running/working for this business? What path brought you here?

Growing up around dentistry, my dad would take us to work with him during the summer. We would get paid $2 per hour to unpack boxes, clean the lab, make stone models of teeth, etc. I realize now after having my own kids, he really did it so we wouldn’t drive my mom crazy at home fighting all summer. Several years passed and after living out of the country for a few years, I returned home and it just felt like the right path for me. I have never regretted the decision and love being a dentist.

Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?

When I am not working, I try to stay active running and biking. I spend a lot of time with my kids at their football games, dance classes and skateboarding lessons. On Sunday afternoons you will find me relaxing and watching a movie with my family.

Any volunteer activities you’re crazy about?

I have been involved with the group, Smiles for Hope, for 5 years now. It takes dentistry into the small villages of the Dominican Republic. I was able to take my wife Maury with me four years ago and this year we went back with my two older boys, Connor and Cash, and 6 Harris Dental team members. We spent 9 days in small villages helping people that have no access to dental care. It has been a life changing opportunity and I feel thankful to be a part of such a great group.

Any awards or medals? Personal and professional?

In the 5th grade, I won first place in the Utah open Karate tournament. I only mention this because I had to fight my brother, Dr Scott, in the finals. Let’s just say he took second place. Still, one of my proudest moments.

Professional: Young Dentist of the Year in 2007, Phoenix Magazine Top Dentist 2007-2013, Phoenix Magazine Top Cosmetic Dentist 2010-2013, AZ Foothills Scottsdale’s Best Cosmetic Dentist 2014.

How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered as a person who was positive and always looked for the good in others. I want to be remembered as someone who enjoyed life to the fullest.

What was the most interesting trip you have ever taken? Why?

The most interesting and fun trip I have ever taken was going to Ireland with Maury. I was taken aback by how beautiful it is. I loved trying new foods, seeing ancient landmarks and learning about the history of the country.

What is your favorite breakfast food?

French toast with lots of butter and syrup.
