As an engineer for the City of Boulder, and one of his biggest role models, Dr. Harberg’s father taught him to be mechanically minded at a young age. While dentistry ultimately won out over engineering school, the mechanics and beauty of a proper bite and healthy smile are things that have given his approach to dentistry an added layer of meaning.
I like all facets of dentistry. It is why I am so committed to my continuing education. While is one thing to simply keep up with changing technologies, modalities and treatment methods. It is another to approach these with a mastery mindset that will allow me to provide my patients with the best dentistry possible, everyday.
Dr. Harberg is a Colorado native. Growing up in Boulder, he went to Fairview High School before attending the University of Nebraska – Lincoln with a major in Biology and minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. Upon completion, he returned to his home state to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine where he finished at the top of his class.
Whenever possible, Dr. Harberg loves giving back. He has traveled to Costa Rica, Panama, and Guatemala to help provide vital dental care to communities in need. Giving back in this way allows him experience the rich culture in different parts of the world while helping those who would otherwise not get the care they desperately need.
Dr. Harberg has been practicing dentistry for over 5 years. In his spare time Dr. Harberg loves spending time with his wife Elsa and their two dogs, Frida and Lido. He is an avid outdoorsman, and has currently hiked 30 of the 54 14ers Colorado has to offer.
He is also a big football fan. Next time you are in, ask him what it was like to lead his team to victory as the quarterback in the Anschutz Medical Campus championship game!
