Dr. Harvey Weber
I’ve been practicing dentistry for 36 years now. I started out in an older building on Comanche St. across from Tibbitts Junior High School and ended up taking over the practice after Dr. Stan Rudisaile had a tragic airplane accident in September of 1974. Before I became a dentist I graduated from Arizona State with a degree in Agriculture and worked as an agronomist, soil scientist, for four years with the Bureau of Reclamation on the Napi project, south of town.

I decided to go back to school and study dentistry at Loma Linda University in southern California. Upon graduation I came to work for a brief time in Shiprock for Indian Services, after which, I came to reside at the Comanche St. practice.

Five years ago, May 2005, we moved to our current location at Pinon Hills Blvd. and Foothills Dr. I would like to say here that I’m very proud of my staff. They are all extremely focused on serving people honestly, with the patient’s best interest in mind.

I am very happy to have my daughter, Deidre and my son-in-law, Dr. Travis Watson here at the Pinon Hills facility. They came to us after living in Nebraska. My family, along with the rest of my staff, make it a real pleasure to work here at Pinon Hills Dental.

Six years ago, I decided to learn about placing dental implants. After an extensive class at the University of Texas in San Antonio, and a lot of hands on training, I’m happy to say we can do everything right here, "in house”. Most dentists will refer you to an oral surgeon or periodontist to get the implant placed then you have to come back to the dentist to get your teeth put in. At Pinon Hills Dental everything is done here on-site saving our patients time, hassle, and money.

I have a lot of personal interests. My real love is to hike and explore the outdoors. I’ve taken over 15 trips to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, also many extensive hikes around the Four Corners area, including a 90 mile backpack trip along the Continental Divide from Wolf Creek Pass to Vallecito Lake. I’ve been fortunate enough to climb all 54 mountains peaks in Colorado, with elevations of 14,000 feet or more. My current plans (2010) include a 60 mile hike from Cumbres Pass to Wolf Creek.

My friends and family know me as a treasure hunter. I often look for Spanish gold in this area. So far it has eluded me.

I have always liked cars and I have built several hot rods in my lifetime. I am presently working on a 1934 Ford. Building this car from the ground up has been quite a challenge and the latest edition to this project has been a 2001 Mustang Cobra drive chassis. Over the last 30 years I’ve fixed around 100 wrecked cars, some I sold but most were the cars my family and I drive.
