Dr. John P. Dougherty has been practicing dentistry for more than two decades. During his career, he has continued to invest in his education, in order to obtain a full set of tools for treating his patients and providing them with the best care options. Launching his own private practice, Artistic Dental at the Biltmore in 2000, Dougherty provides comprehensive dental care, taking an integrative approach in treating and educating patients from childhood to seniors.

After graduating from Oregon State, Dougherty moved to Omaha, Nebraska to attend Creighton University, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery. The appeal of warm weather and the growing Phoenix market in 1991 inspired Dougherty to start his career in Arizona

A lifelong learner, Dougherty believes that the more knowledge and skills he can acquire, the better care and services he can provide to his patients. In 2012, Dougherty’s commitment to education was recognized after completing 1,100 of continued study with a Mastership Award from the Academy of General Dentistry, the highest honor and one of the most respected designations within the dental profession.

Dougherty is a member of Central Arizona Dental Society, American Dental Association, Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, International Orthodontics Association, and the Arizona State Dental Association. He also donates his time and expertise to patients from Saint Vincent de Paul and Veterans of Foreign Wars.
