Affinity Dental Announces Addition of Dr. Payton Harker to Clinic’s Staff
Arizona-based complete family dental care practice welcomes dental school graduate of Midwestern University; passionate professional takes pride in providing gentle care so patients experience an exceptional visit.
Queen Creek, AZ – March 21, 2019 – Dr. Payton Harker, dental school graduate of Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona, has joined the acclaimed staff of Affinity Dental, a Queen Creek-based complete family dental care practice boasting a friendly and compassionate team operating in a soothing, state-of-the-art office. Dr. Harker brings with him a deep passion for helping patients with their dental needs, coupled with a sincere pride in providing gentle care so patients experience an exceptional visit.
Growing up in a town of 3,000 in Alberta, Canada, Dr. Harker spent a couple of years in the construction industry before serving a two-year mission for his church in Nevada, going on to BYU and graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Science. Following graduation, he moved to Arizona and worked in a denture lab for a year before attending dental school at Midwestern University in Glendale, all the while applying the ethics he learned from spending time in foreign countries, providing dental care to underprivileged communities.
“Indeed, my experiences in the Philippines as well as in the Kingdom of Tonga showed me how quality dental care can be life-changing,” says Dr. Harker. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the professionals at Affinity Dental – a well-respected practice that values a healthy relationship between a dentist and patient in a world that, unfortunately, seems less personally-oriented with each passing day.
“I look forward to, per the Affinity dental services mantra, focusing on prevention and utilizing a conservative approach toward dental treatment while incorporating the latest innovation and technology to ensure patients’ care is comprehensive and comfortable.”
