Dr. Harold Henderson – Dentist
Dentistry is a dream come true for Dr. Hal Henderson. “Every day I look forward to the opportunity to work with people to help create and maintain beautiful and healthy smiles!” Dentistry is a second career for Dr. Henderson. He worked briefly with software, but found that his favorite aspect of the job was not working with computers, but with other people. Dentistry was something Dr. Henderson had been interested in for awhile, and the opportunity to work directly with patients one-on-one with a caring staff seemed like the perfect profession to him.
Dr. Henderson was trained at the prestigious Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. In addition to his dental school duties, he participated in student leadership as Class Vice-President, and later as Class President. His love of working with other people shone through, and he was awarded the Dr. Thomas R. Bales Good Samaritan Award and the Kevin J. Campbell School Service Award. He was also a member of the Aesthetics Club and Dental Ethics Club. He also found a love for implant dentistry, a great option for replacing missing teeth.
Dr. Henderson also completed a General Practice Residency at the medical center in Jackson, Mississippi. “I was really able to see how crucial dentistry is to our overall health. The mouth really is the gateway to the rest of our body.” There he also continued his work in implant placement and restoration. In the residency, Dr. Henderson furthered his knowledge in all aspects of general dentistry, including fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions (including wisdom teeth removal), gum surgery, and orthodontics.
Dr. Henderson is now excited to be part of the PV Dentistry team. He has a passion for patient education and making patients feel very comfortable about any decisions they make. “I want patients to know that you won’t find a more caring team anywhere, than right here at PV Dentistry.”
Cathie Miner – Patient Coordinator

Ellie Estrada – Dental Assistant
Ellie is a Prescott native and has been a dental assistant for three years, and has been working at PV Dentistry along side Dr. Henderson for a year. Ellie is currently enrolled at Yavapai College and is working towards her Associates of Science Degree and wants to work her way up to a PhD in dentistry.
On her free time, Ellie likes to go to the gym and be active outdoors.
Thomas Harless RDH
Thomas grew up in a military town, the son of a Marine and RN. His first foray into dentistry began when he was in the U.S. Air Force. After his service, he attended Mohave College for dental hygiene, and has been in private practice ever since. His time as a dental hygienist has been very rewarding. He enjoys meeting new faces, helping patients overcome their dental fears, and also helping patients reach their dental goals.
Thomas has lived all across the western United States, but Arizona has always felt like home. He enjoys Prescott for its friendly people, great climate, and downtown area. On his free time, he enjoys reading about history and archaeology. He also enjoys playing guitar, computer games, and hiking.
