Dr. T. Harper DDS
Chief Dental Officer
I graduated from NC Central University with a Bachelor Degree in Biology. One month after graduating from NCCU, I attended SHPEP (Summer Health Professions Education Program), as a Pre Dental Student, the summer prior to dental school. This programs exposed aspiring Dental Students to each required course for HUCD Freshmen curriculum. I graduated from HUCD (Howard University College of Dentistry) with a DDS (Doctorate in Dental Surgery). I received a AEGD residency (Advanced Education in General Dentistry) from MHMC (MetroHealth Medical Center, Tertiary Trauma Center). I completed my MPH in 2008 from UNC Chapel Hill.
Shortly after 911, I decided to join the US Air Force. I am currently a Lt Col and Chief Dental Officer USAF.
I am a native of North Carolina. I decided to become a Dentist as a youth (approx. age 10) after experiencing tooth pain as a child.
My career goal is to elevate the access of care for the indigent under and uninsured population, one patient at a time.
My favorite color is brown, favorite flower is sunflower and I enjoy baking for friends and family.
I enjoy and appreciate Family time.
