Dr. Dean Lankford

From the age of 4 in Long Beach, Mississippi, Dr. Dean Lankford wanted to be a dentist. After growing up woodworking with his grandfather and learning how to live a good life, he went to University of Florida (Go Gators!) and graduated Magna Cum Laude.

Dr. Sandhya Harpavat

Dr Harpavat practices dentistry with a “mom’s touch” getting to know her patients and understanding their needs carefully. She wants her little ones and young adults to become confident adult dental patients, excited to care for and show off their beautiful smiles.

“What they are saying about us”

“I took my three children to Dr. Harpavat and my children loved it! My littlest who is two held his mouth wide open as Dr. H. examined his teeth. Dr. Harpavat is very thorough and gentle with the children and the staff around was amazing and made us feel right at home!”
Shonali A.
“Our daughter was never a big fan of doctors when she was little. When she had to go to the dentist for the first time I was so dreading the visit, but Dr. Harpavat made it so much fun that she was asking to go to the dentist everyday! She is hands down the best pediatric dentist!”
Rachel C.
“Definitely one of the best dental experiences I’ve ever had. Dr. Dean pushed my claim through quickly, x-rays done fast, explained things clearly, and repaired a tooth a previous dentist did a horrible job on. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. My family won’t be going anywhere else again!”
Ed H.
“Dr. Sandhya Harpavat is a wonderful person, mother, and pediatric dentist. I would recommend her to pediatric families for her exceptional skills and her kind demeanor that relieves all anxiety for patients and parents.”
