Meet The Doctors

Michael Harrington, DDS

Let me introduce myself, I was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. I graduated eighth in my class at North High School, Bakersfield California. I moved to Nampa, Idaho to attend Northwest Nazarene University (NNU). At NNU I graduated with honors on the Dean’s List with a BS in Biology. I then moved to Nashville, Tennessee to attend Meharry Medical College (MMC). I graduated from MMC in the top 5% of my class with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. I missed California so much during the eight years of my education that I decided to move back. I chose Ventura for its wonderful climate, friendly people and small town atmosphere.   I earned my California State Dental License in 2000. I was an associate in Ventura and Santa Barbara County for two years, then in April 2002 I opened my private practice in Ventura, California. In 2008 I expanded into a second location in Carpinteria, California and took over for the retiring Dr. John Conti. I am a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), and the Santa Barbara / Ventura County Dental Society (SBVCDS). I am also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).
I am thoroughly enjoying my patients and development of a mutual respect and friendship with them over. I am looking forward to serving the community that I live and work in, and hope that you will allow me to take care of you and your entire family now, and for years to come.

  Here is a short introduction of myself, I was born and raised in Ventura, California. I graduated from Buena High School here in Ventura. I moved to San Diego, when I joined the United States Navy in 1994. I served as a Dental Technician, same as a Dental Assitant, for 5 years on Active Duty and 2 years in the Reserves. While in the Reserves I was a Dental Assitant at a General Dentist and Periodontists office. I attended Grossmont Community College in San Diego and graduated with my Associate of Science with emphasis in Biological Sciences. I then transfered to San Diego State University, where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Microbiology. I then attended Dental School at Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska from 2003-2007, graduating with a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree (DDS). I then went back into the Navy as a Dental Officer, my first duty station was a General Practice Residency (GPR) at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton. I then was transferred up to Port Hueneme, California where I was stationed with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Four (NMCB 4). While with NMCB 4 I did a 6 month tour in Kuwait and a 8 month tour in Afghanistan in support of my Seabee Constructionmen. My next duty station was at Port Hueneme/Point Mugu Dental clinics where I was in charge of the Point Mugu Dental/Medical Department. I resigned from Active Duty service in September of 2013. I have been working at two Dental offices here in Ventura until I received this wonderful opportunity to join the Aloha Dental Care Team. I am excited to be here to take care of the wonderful patients and provide my expertise to all. I am currently in the Reserves at the Port Hueneme Base. I am a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), and the Santa Barbara / Ventura County Dental Society (SBVCDS).
