About Dr. Harbertson
After dental school, Dr. Harbertson obtained a position as as Oral Surgery Intern at the VA Hospital in Long Beach, California. While working there, he developed a friendship with a Periodontist who really taught him what this profession is all about. He feels grateful for his decision to pursue Periodontics because, as he says, “it is a perfect fit for me".
He was born in a suburb of Salt Lake City, called Holiday. He met his wife at the University of Utah where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. After graduation, they moved to Omaha so he could attend Dental School at Creighton University, a place he remembers fondly for the wonderful friendships both he and his wife created and for the birth of their first daughter, Ella.
Once his studies were completed, he and his wife moved to Oklahoma City so he could pursue his Master’s Degree in Periodontics in a residency program at the University of Oklahoma. It was during this time, they decided that with all of the family they had in San Diego, they should began their search there for a practice to join. It was a perfect fit to join Dr. Bourcy.
