What Sets Us Apart?

what sets us apart

How We Different from other Tucson Periodontists?

What sets us apart is our commitment to our valued patients, including seeing one patient at a time, committing enough time to each appointment so that every patient has a chance to get his or her questions answered.

As Dr. Harvey puts it: "This is not a clinic, this is my practice. Working with an amazing team I get to insist that we treat everyone every day to a level of excellence that would satisfy me, if I was receiving the treatment. I guarantee that we are not going to tell you that you have to do this or that. Rather, we are going to take the time to listen to you, really listen, so that we can understand what you want, be it improved health, better chewing function, or a more pleasing smile. Then, working together, you, my team and I figure out how to get to that desired end point."

In addition to our commitment to excellence in service and clinical outcomes for our patients, we are also committed to maintaining a positive, fulfilling work environment. As Shelly says: "We do really cool things here, every day. It's a joy to come into work." Give us a call and when you do come in for an appointment, be sure to pay attention to our attitudes towards our patients and each other.

The last line of our Mission Statement says it all: "We want to make this office the best place in which each of us ever has the opportunity to work."

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It has been my honor and privilege to serve my community, and to serve my profession, this last 37+ years.

I am thrilled to share some really exciting news. Following an exhaustive nationwide search and a super positive transition process over last year, Dr. Abhi Patel will be assuming control of the office starting March 1st, 2024. I will be reducing my schedule and will be seeing patients on a part-time basis.

The team and I are thrilled to have Dr. Patel with us and we are looking forward to continuing to
provide exceptional care of our patients. In all of my interactions, Dr. Patel has demonstrated the honesty, integrity and dedication necessary to be an exceptional periodontist. He is extremely competent and caring, and has the passion and skills to deliver high quality, evidence-based care. I trust him to take care of you and I believe he will be a valuable asset to our community.

Dr. Patel is a board-certified Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and Implantology. He is highly trained recognized leader in periodontics and implantology, having been an educator and researcher who has published many articles in international peer-reviewed journals. He was awarded the prestigious “Outstanding Educator Award” by the American Academy of Periodontology for his mentoring and scientific research. He serves as a committee member for the Academy of Osseointegration. Dr. Patel brings a wealth of knowledge and a superior skillset that will assure exceptional outcomes for our patients. Dr. Patel and I, along with our extraordinary team, are looking forward to continuing to provide what you have come to expect from our practice: unparalleled patient service and clinical excellence. The team has been actively involved in the transition process from the beginning, and they are remaining in place. We will all be here to assist Dr. Patel with your care.

I hope you will join me in welcoming Dr. Patel to our practice. Thank you again for your loyalty and confidence over this last (almost) four decades.

Warmest regards,
Dr. Brien Harvey
