Philosophy of Dental Practice

As a Dentist, my objective is to create natural and beautiful smiles. I want to ethically and compassionately provide patients an opportunity to attain an optimum state of oral health.

Dr. Katherine Harrell graduated from dental school in 2014 from Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ. Since that time she has been practicing dentistry in Tucson, AZ, with her parents who are both dentists. She has continued her education since she graduated. She is a member of the American Society of Dental Aesthetics, and enjoys doing dentistry that looks good, feels good, and lasts a long time.
While in Tucson she donated her time at Saint Elizabeth’s of Hungary Dental Clinic and has also provided care with the Flying Samaritans Tucson Chapter.
Growing up she spent time in southern California and always wanted to return. She has made it to Costa Mesa CA, and is now following her dream.
