Dr. Richard Harvey

Dr. Rick Harvey stumbled upon the dental field after taking a skills assessment in college. In his words, “the more I observed dentists in my hometown, the more I fell in love with the profession. I was amazed by the dentists’ ability to help make a difficult situation more pleasant for the patient.”

Dr. Harvey earned a dual degree from Utah State University in 1999, majoring in spanish and liberal arts & sciences. He was then awarded the US Navy’s Health Professions Scholarship and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Ohio State University College of Dentistry. He’s still a Buckeye through and through. Dr. Harvey began his career in 2003 and spent over 4 years serving the men and women of the US military who were stationed in California and aboard the USS New Orleans.

He moved from California to Colorado and started working at Summit Family Dentistry. The office’s philosophy of going above and beyond for each patient aligned perfectly with Dr. Harvey’s standards and he eventually purchased the practice. His desire to give back led him to become a host office for Dentistry from the Heart – a free community dentistry day. Summit Family Dentistry has hosted this event for the last seven years and donates over $70,000 in free dental treatment annually.

Dr. Harvey and his wife Crista stay busy with their four children and are active in their church. When he has free time he enjoys listening to music, going to the theater, and playing or watching basketball. Dr. Harvey has been nationally recognized for his accomplishments in dentistry and as a small business owner.

He received his degrees from Texas State University with Bachelors of Science in Microbiology, and Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio.
