A lover of art and science, Dr. Mahvash Khajavi-Harvey, DMD, found the perfect career blend in the field of dentistry or what she calls “the art of creating smiles.” Mahvash is a graduate from Oregon Health Sciences University and a part-time affiliate faculty member at the University of Washington School of Dentistry.
She is new to the neighborhood, opening Urban Dental Group in 2020 during the midst of the COVID pandemic, but is not new to practicing dentistry in the greater Seattle area. Previously, she worked in low-income public health and had a private practice in Fremont. She has volunteered overseas providing dental care to people without access and, on a yearly basis, offers services at free clinics for patients experiencing homelessness and poverty.
With close to 25 years of industry experience, Mahvash says, “I strive to provide the highest quality of care possible to all of my patients.” Her practice offers general dentistry for all ages from basic restorations to cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, and root canals. She stays up to date with the latest techniques in dental technology and is committed to quality and long-lasting care.
When she’s not creating smiles, Mahvash enjoys hiking in nature, playing tennis, and is a big soccer fan. She shares three children with her husband Dr. David Harvey, who owns Phinney Primary Care and Wellness next door. The two have practiced side-by-side for the last 25 years in the greater Seattle area.
Recently, Mahvash published a memoir called Daylight Forever, where she writes about growing up in her native Tehran and escaping during the Iran/Iraq war. Her book is available on Amazon and all proceeds benefit three organizations that help underserved women and refugees.
Mahvash is excited to be a part of the neighborhood’s health care provider network and to offer facility tours and introduce her excellent team of highly-qualified and dedicated staff. Please visit urbandentalgroup.com to learn more!
