Matthew J. Harmon, DMD
Dr. Harmon feels it a privilege to care for every patient and looks forward to making lasting friendships with each person. Dr. Harmon has been involved in dentistry at many levels since 2005. He attended the Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Glendale, AZ and received a DMD in 2012. While in school he received many awards for service and clinical accomplishment and also held prominent leadership roles on the student governing board. Upon graduating he joined the Village Dental Center, and was also asked by Midwestern administration to be a senator on the alumni board and was hired to be part of the dental school pre-clinical faculty – something he relishes doing every week.
Dr Harmon is originally from Wichita, KS, but moved to Phoenix, AZ in January of 2003 to study music. His musical interest and talent led him to Flagstaff, AZ where he attended Northern Arizona University. During his time up north, Dr Harmon played his trumpet in numerous venues. One of the highlights of his time with music was being honored to perform the trumpet solos for Handel’s Messiah at the annual Christmas performance. During his time at NAU he received a bachelor's degree in Trumpet Performance – but also discovered his interest in dentistry and began preparing himself for a life time of service to his patients.
Having been at the Village Dental Center since 2012, Dr. Harmon has great pride in taking the time to care for one patient at a time. The office provides comprehensive care to see to all of a patient’s dental needs.
With passion for being on the cutting edge of the industry, Dr Harmon has taken numerous continuing education courses including topics on implant dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and dental ceramics to improve aesthetics, managing gum disease, among many others. Dr. Harmon has attended the prestigious White Cap Institute for dental implants in Heber City, UT.
