State-of-the-Art Dental Practice Puts People First

Haven Dental has officially joined the Southlake community and is open for business. And with all of their soothing amenities, they are sure to become the premier luxury dental practice in the area.
The name Haven Dental immediately clues in patients on what to expect. A welcoming waiting room with comfy sofas and a gourmet coffee bar. State-of-the-art dental chairs that can provide a heated massage as you watch Netflix listening with your bluetooth headphones...and get your teeth cleaned. Hot towels are also on-hand for total relaxation. This dentist office is not your childhood dread – it’s an inviting atmosphere that puts you at ease using the latest technology.
"I wanted a name that makes people feel comfortable,” Dr. Brady says. “Many people are pretty timid about going to the dentist and I wanted to reiterate that this is a place where they'll be taken care of and a place where they can feel safe and appreciated."
In spite of working hard to open his new practice in time, Dr. Tyler Brady recently went on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. This is at the heart of his inspiration in founding Haven Dental – serving others. And his dental philosophy reflects that:
"I believe in treating all people the best way possible, and showing them that they are thought about, and loved” Dr. Brady says.
Beyond that, Haven Dental is a practice that aims to have an impact far beyond its walls. Prior to even opening the doors of his practice, Dr. Brady began to serve others all over the world through his “We Heart You” initiative; being partnered with Willie Griffith Ministries – a missionary couple in Kenya; LDS Africa Smiles – a nonprofit providing dental care in Africa; The DentMed Advocacy Fund– a local charity that will be funding smile makeovers free of charge for Haven Dental; Smiles for Central America - another dental expedition; and his alma mater, Tufts University’s School of Dental Medicine. When he says he puts service first, Dr. Brady means it in its most literal sense.
"I'm a huge believer in starting off right, not going 'Oh, we'll do that next month' or 'We'll start that next year,'" Dr. Brady says. "I like to start off the way I would like things to be and work with what I have to make it happen."
To support this “We Heart You” project, Haven Dental works with the DentMed Advocacy Funt to donate dental kits. A kit may consist of a toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, sugar-free gum and other items depending on where it is being sent. For example, Dr. Brady included some warm hats in the dental kits sent to Tufts University. The various Tufts student groups, under his direction, will reach out to the homeless population in Boston. Haven Dental is helping supply these groups with kits, but Dr. Brady also added hats to each package, because in his words: “It’s freezing up there.”
But he isn’t stopping there. Dr. Brady hopes to one day start up a scholarship fund for pre-dental students unable to afford traveling for a dental expedition. He traveled to Honduras for a dental expedition before attending dental school and would like for others to have the same opportunity.
And while service is something that is clearly high-priority to the team at Haven Dental, Dr. Brady says patients are always welcome to join in these efforts as well.
"Every patient that comes through our doors will be able to help,” he says. “We have adopted a practice that when you get that free toothbrush after your visit, one will be donated to someone in need, you can even donate yours!"
For Dr. Brady, choosing to open in Southlake was partially inspired by the service aspect of his practice. "I think there are many people in Southlake who want to help other people,” he says, “There is such a strong sense of community here, I felt it was the perfect place to get started.”
Dr. Brady wanted a place to practice his other passion: cosmetic dentistry. While Haven Dental is by no means limited to cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Brady specializes in dental implants and improving people’s smiles. In fact, he is a part of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists as well as the International Academy of Ceramic Implantology and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Additionally, Dr. Brady serves as a family dentist and is ready to care for your entire family’s dental needs. At Haven Dental, the team strives to be transparent and make patients for at home and at ease.
"I feel like there are so many people looking for a dentist that has their best interest at heart. Not only do I want to do that for my patients, I want to set a new standard of dentistry that can reach out and help as many people as possible. I want to give my very best to Southlake, and I hope that they can see that through the effort I have put into building this practice.”
