Meet the Doctors

 

​Dr Paylor

 

     Dr. Jeramiah Paylor grew up right here in Boulder, Colorado. As a child he lived on CU campus at family housing and enjoyed spending time riding bikes in the surrounding area. After going to Aurora 7 for elementary school his family moved to Lakewood for high school. Soon thereafter Dr. Paylor moved to Durango, CO to go to Fort Lewis College. He graduated with a degree in cellular and molecular biology. After college Dr. Paylor married his wife Stephanie. They moved back home to Boulder to pursue Dental school after shadowing the profession under the guise of Dr. Harwood.

     Dr. Paylor graduated from University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine in 2016. While at school there Dr. Paylor pursued more challenging cases so he could graduate and serve patients with the best possible care. During school he also was the president of the dental public health association and is a preventative minded clinician.

     Upon graduation he met with Dr. Harwood and discussed the possibility of joining the practice as an associate. Both parties believe that to be a great idea so at the end of June 2016 he joined Arapahoe Dental as an associate dentist.

     While in school Dr. Paylor was engaging in continuing education with currently practicing dentists. He believes that a dentist’s education is never complete and will continue to take multiple continuing education courses throughout his career. He one day hopes to be a mentor with Cerec Doctors just like his mentor Dr. Harwood. Dr. Paylor is an active member with the American Dental Association (ADA), the Colorado Dental Association, and the Colorado Prosthodontics Society.

     Outside of dentistry Dr. Paylor loves spending time with family Stephanie and their rambunctious daughter Eleanor. With his family he enjoys hiking in the local mountains and backcountry skiing in the mountains above Boulder. 

 

Dr Harwood

 Dr Harwood Potrait

     Dr. Phillip Harwood grew up in Northridge, California and subsequently graduated from the University of Southern California with a BA in psychology. Soon thereafter Dr. Harwood married his wife Debbie and in 1984 they packed up their lives in California to head to Omaha, Nebraska so      Dr. Harwood could attend Dental School at Creighton University. Dr. Harwood graduated in 1988 after serving as president of his class for the last two years he was at Creighton. From Omaha, the Harwood Family, which now included twin daughters, moved to Denver where Dr. Harwood participated in a General Practice Residency (GPR) at the Denver Veterans Affairs Hospital. 

     In 1989 as his GPR was coming to a close, Dr. Harwood interviewed at Arapahoe Dental when the practice was still owned by Dr. Paul Franklund. Needless to say the interview went well and Dr. Harwood has been here ever since. Since moving to Boulder, Dr. Harwood and his wife have had three more children, making a total of five! 

     Dr. Harwood firmly believes that his education is never complete, and works hard to further his education for his own benefit and for his patients benefit. The doctor is not afraid of the new technology as can be demonstrated by his completion of the prestigious Gordon Christensen Mentorship at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry and his invitation to be a Cerec Doctors Mentor at the same location. Community is also very important to the doctor. He is an active member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Colorado Dental Association (CDA), and frequently donates time and services to children through the Boulder Valley School District, and adults in need through the Dental Lifeline Network. 

     Outside of dentistry Dr. Harwood enjoys playing his guitar, woodworking, spending time outside, but most importantly, being a husband dad and now grandpa.
