Doctor Graver knows first-hand that high-quality anesthesia/sedation dentistry is the gateway to great and comprehensive dental care.
Doctor Graver feels fortunate to be able to practice in the same county in which he was born and raised. One of thirteen children, he was the only child in his family to be born in York Memorial Hospital. He graduated from Spring Grove Area High School and served a two-year proselyting mission, for his church, in Southern Italy; with most of his time spent in Sicily.
He met and married his wife, Tara, from Bloomington/Normal, IL at Ricks College in Rexburg, ID in 1992. After transferring to Brigham Young University in Provo, UT he graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Botany with an emphasis in Premedicine/Predentistry in 1997.
In 2002 he graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery from West Virginia University’s School of Dentistry. Immediately upon graduation, he began his career as an associate at a local dental office in York, PA. While working as an associate he gained the vision to start his own practice. In 2005, Dr. Graver – with much help from his wife – opened Beautiful Smiles Family Dental Center, Inc. In the twelfth year of marriage, Dr. and Mrs. Graver felt their family was complete with the birth of their second son and sixth child.
Dr. Graver’s extensive and frequent continuing education sparked a passion for Dental Anesthesiology.
He found that this key opened the door for anyone to receive dental care. At the completion of 2015, Dr. Graver fulfilled his dream of completing a hospital-based residency in anesthesiology at St. Barnabas Hospital in The Bronx of New York City. Like with medicine, Dr. Graver knows first-hand that high-quality anesthesia/sedation dentistry is the gateway to great and comprehensive dental care. He strives to educate all patients that prevention is the key to good oral health. He recognizes that the unwavering support of his wife Tara made this final academic step in his career possible and he is most grateful to her.
Currently, Dr. Graver team-teaches with Tara a Sunday school class of seven to eight year-old children each Sabbath. During each week and at least one weekend a month, he serves Troop 177 as an Assistant Scoutmaster. Away from work and church, Dr. Graver enjoys working in his yard and family vegetable garden. In the future, Dr. Graver hopes to re-commence his hobby of RV camping with his wife, children, and grandchildren wherever the open road, family, and friends are found.
