A native of York County, Dr. Graver graduated from Spring Grove Area High School in 1989. He spent the next two years in southern Italy, and the island of Sicily, as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Shortly after his return, he met his beloved wife Tara at Ricks College in southeast Idaho. After her graduation in 1994, they moved to Utah where Dr. Graver completed his Bachelor of Science degree (1997) in Botany, at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Dr. Graver then attended West Virginia University School of Dentistry from 1998-2002, where he earned his Doctoral Degree in dental surgery.
In 2002, after completing his academic pursuits, Dr. Graver commenced his career, as a private practitioner and associate dentist, at Tri-Hill Family Dentistry in York. In 2005, he started his own private practice, Beautiful Smiles Family Dental Center. Dr. Graver identified a niche in this region: an anesthesiologist who could provide dental treatment in the office setting. Dr. Graver completed a residency in anesthesiology at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, NY. In 2015, he obtained Board Certification by the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology (ADSA). Since that time, Dr. Graver has practiced general dentistry as a Dentist Anesthesiologist which allows him and his team to serve the very young and elderly populations as well as those with dental phobias and other special needs.
Dr. Graver and Tara have six grown children and have also been blessed with grandchildren. They have celebrated over 30 years of marriage. Dr. Graver loves the outdoors and RVing with his wife, family and friends. He enjoys his garden and canning/freezing the produce from it each summer. He continues to serve as a lay minister for his church in various capacities.
