Dirk M. Donovan, DMD, MSD

Dirk Donovan
Dr. Donovan grew up and went to college in Evansville, Indiana. “I knew that I wanted to be a dentist pretty early in life. My father worked nightshift in a factory and I rarely saw him. My dentist was a happy, caring guy who surrounded himself with a wonderful staff and patients who felt comfortable and cared for. Who wouldn’t want a career like that?” He earned his Doctor of Dental Science degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, in 2001, and completed his Master of Science degree in Dentistry as well as his Certificate in Periodontics from Indiana University in January 2005.

Dr. Donovan spent three years in his residency receiving advanced training in all aspects of periodontics, esthetic soft tissue surgery, advanced bone grafting surgery, simple, esthetic and complex implant surgery and IV/conscious sedation. Dr. Donovan is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology.

Dr. Donovan began his career in 2004 at a large perio-implant practice on the South Side of Chicago. He attended an education course in Phoenix in January 2007 and moved here three months later.”My parents retired to Prescott and the quality of life in Phoenix was so great in winter months. Northern Illinois can be very cold and gray.” Dr. Donovan relaxes by reading, going to concerts and sporting events, trying to cook, and enjoying all that Arizona has to offer. Dr. Donovan sees patients in AZPerio’s offices in Central Phoenix and Paradise Valley.
