Kokopelli Family and Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. Haveer Kaur’s decision to pursue dentistry was spurred on by a traumatic event. When she was just ten years old, her grandparents were in a fatal car accident. The only one to survive was her grandmother, who suffered great injuries including a broken jaw.
Her grandmother was forced to have her jaw wired shut for over six months. The young Harveer watched helplessly as her grandmother couldn’t eat and couldn’t smile. Though she missed her grandmother’s smile tremendously, it was watching her grandmother suffer which was hardest to take. This experiences ignited a passion for her to help others with their dental needs.
It’s that passion along with the belief that her purpose is to imporve people’s lives that bring her to work each day with a positive attitude. She believes in conservative dentistry, which means saving as much tooth structure as possible. She’ll never do an unnecessary extraction. Additionally, it’s important to her for her patients to make informed decisions about their teeth. She’ll take as much time as necessary to explain what the issues are and all their options for a positive outcome.
Continuing education is a large part of her philosophy. In fact, she’s made it a goal to keep up with the latest advancements as well as consistently developing new skills and knowledge.

“By far the best dentistry experience I have ever had and that’s saying a lot because I HATE THE DENTIST. For once I’m actually looking forward to going back to the dentist. The waiting room is beautiful and they even have a room for kids to play in while you wait. The staff was amazing they explained everything to me during the appointment and they were very friendly to me. I will definitely be recommending my friends and family here.” – Shalamar Habeel

“Desert Smiles, Dr. Tenney & the staff are ALL wonderful!! Because I’ve had some bad experiences with other dentists in the past, the dentist is NOT my favorite place to go. However, Desert Smiles puts me at ease about my care with their welcoming staff, informed hygienists, and knowledgeable dentist. I would recommend him and Desert Smiles to ANY & EVERYONE!! They are just that amazing!!” – Dalila A. Gamper

Artistic Dental at the biltmore
Dr. John Dougherty isn’t your average everyday dentist. He’s been practicing dentistry for more than two decades, he is an outdoor enthusiast who has hiked the Grand Canyon North Rim to South Rim more than 20 times, and he’s completed a 600-mile bike race in Oregon. But what truly sets him apart is his dedication to his family, his patients and the Phoenix community. Launching his private practice, Artistic Dental at the biltmore in 2000, Dr. Dougherty provides comprehensive dental care, taking an integrative approach in treating patients from children to seniors.
Growing up in Portland, Oregon, John Dougherty excelled in math and science. After graduating high school, he went on to become a bleeding orange and black Beaver from Oregon State University. Coming from a family of engineers, it seemed only natural that he would follow their lead. Yet, his career path took a different turn when he took a class that had students perform an exercise carving teeth. When his professor told him he was a “natural talent”, he decided to change majors and ultimately became one of Arizona’s leading dentists.
After graduating from Oregon State University, Dr. Dougherty attended Creighton University, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery. The appeal of warm weather, great outdoor activities and the growing Phoenix market attracted Dr. Dougherty to start his career in Arizona in 1991. For the first few years, he worked on staff for a private practice before joining OnSite Dental, where he worked from a trailer traveling throughout Arizona to provide dental care to the under-served children and families living on the Indian reservations.
After four years of working from the road five-days-a-week,Dr. Dougherty returned to practicing dentistry full-time in Phoenix and began looking for a dental practice of his own to purchase. His two-year search eventually connected him with a retiring dentist located at 24th Street just south of Camelback Road and the two signed an agreement.Two days before closing, the business burned to the ground. Knowing that entrepreneurship was not for the weak, Dr. Dougherty stayed committed to going out on his own. He renegotiated and rebuilt, opening the doors to Artistic Dental at the biltmore in November 2000.

“I have been coming here for several years now. The staff is so friendly. All of the hygienists are well-trained and highly professional. Both dentists do a great job at making a personal connection, even though when we only see each other about twice a year. Love the convenient location. If you’re looking for a dentist or wanting to switch, come to Artistic Dental!” – Megan Yanno
“Artistic dental is amazing. The technology is state of the art, making visits effective and efficient. My dental hygienist, Mary is very experienced, kind, gentle and a joy to be around. The staff are pleasant and helpful, and the dentists are very good. I feel well cared for at Artistic Dental and would highly recommend them. If you don’t have insurance they also have a reasonable dental plan that was actually less expensive than my current dental insurance so I switched.” – Lynn Roman
Arcadia Dental Arts
Dr. John Pappas was very fearful of the dentist as a child. When his family chose a new dentist, whose love for dentistry shone through in everything he did, his feelings began to change. Over time, he became inspired by his work and the genuine connections he made with each of his patients. That dentist-patient relationship that was pivotal in helping him cope with his fears is one that Dr. Pappas has brought to Arcadia Dental Arts and is a pillar in his practice.
Dr. Pappas received his education at Creighton University School of Dentistry. His dedication to dentistry hasn’t gone unnoticed as he received an award for the Recognition of Outstanding Commitment to Life-Long Learning from the University of Southern California’s School of Dentistry. In 2013, Dr. Pappas was the only dentist in Arizona to receive the title of a “Top Dentist” by Phoenix Magazine in both the categories of General Dentist and Cosmetic Dentist. He was again the recipient of the “Top Dentist” title in 2015.
Dr. Pappas’s commitment to dentistry doesn’t stop when he leaves his Arcadia practice. Dr. Pappas is a Spear Study Club leader in which he mentors and collaborates with other general and specialty dentists in the Phoenix area. He is also a Faculty Club Member at the Spear Institute, an elite group of professionals dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and skill in the field of advanced restorative dentistry.
