Early into his residency and specialization in orthodontics, Dr. Keith Harvey recognized that a great practice is equal parts professional and personal. Patients expect and deserve a great smile, and because every patient is unique, they also deserve a treatment experience that caters to their unique dentition and lifestyle. So Dr. Harvey launched his practice in Mobile with an emphasis on infusing personality with clinical expertise to create a “better orthodontic experience.” After all, “personal and professional” are the foundations of trust between patient and practitioner, whether in the patient is in need of braces for adults or children, so Dr. Harvey decided to make these the hallmarks of his office.
“We know that when trust and communication are great so, too, are the orthodontic experience and smile outcome. So the team and I want to make sure that patients know we’re listening to them because their cares and concerns are part of our overall treatment plan. This collaboration is what really sets us apart.”
Dr. Harvey is a native Mobilian and graduate of UMS Wright. Along with his wife, Ashley, and their four sons, William, Reid, Drew, and Dex, he enjoys family-centric activities. Outside of the office you’ll find Dr. Harvey and his family traveling, hunting, and cheering on the Crimson Tide. He has a deep seeded love of music, and was even the lead singer in a band during dental school.
