Harvey Levy, D.M.D., M.A.G.D.

Dr. Harvey Levy

Dr. Harvey Levy founded our practice with the vision of providing dental care to underserved populations, particularly those with anxiety or special needs. An alumnus of Tufts Dental School and the University of Rochester, he started practicing in Frederick in 1980. He’s an excellent diagnostician who developed a special technique for pulling teeth quickly and with few fractures. An inspiring teacher and professor, he has taught thousands of dental professionals to care for patients with special needs, and loves to make sure that patients clearly understand their choices. He enjoys oral surgery, sedation dentistry in the office and in the hospital, and difficult cases generally. A master in the martial arts, Dr. Levy may treat you to a stream of dad jokes and lighthearted conversation. See his complete CV here. See Dr. Levy’s Clinician’s Corner.
