Methuen Dentist
Dr. Harveen Bajwa DDS

Principal Dentist

I graduated and received D.D.S from New York University in 2008. Always thirsting for knowledge, I take extensive continuing education training in various aspects of dentistry including cosmetic, orthodontics (invisalign) and general dentistry. This helps me to enhance my clinical skills and to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry.

I have particular interest in cosmetic dentistry using the latest tooth matched all ceramic restorations and invisible aligners such as “Invisalign”. My further special interest lies in non-surgical facial aesthetic procedures – in particular botulinum toxin (Botox) and dermal fillers.

After graduating, I moved to Acton, Massachusetts in order to be close to my family and friends. I started my career working for other dentists with their own practices. Soon enough I realized I could do things better. Ultimately, I decided to build my own dental practice and model it after what I would want and expect for my own family. My approach to your treatment always starts with patiently listening to you. Then, after a thorough examination, I will review and discuss the diagnosis and treatment options with you. As a Methuen dentist, I am very proud to provide my patients with best in dental technology, treatment options and patient comfort. It is my pleasure to address all your questions and concerns.

As a result, my patients have become my friends over the years and a large portion of the credit goes to my incredible staff members.

Dental Assistant

The combination of high tech dentistry with a strong focus on patient care is what first attracted Nina to Pleasant Smiles. She finished her dental education at New Hampshire Technical Institute along with an associate in Health Science degree. She received her Dental Assisting National Board Certification (DANB) before she became a licensed Dental Assistant.

Nina is responsible for anticipating the needs of Dr. Bajwa. She keeps the operatories and instruments sterile, delivers diagnostic digital x-rays, manages the inventory, and provides chair-side support to both Dr. Bajwa and her patients. She also plays a very important role in patient education. She helps in educating patients and motivating them to maintain good oral health. You will find Nina as a very calm but focused person who loves being part of each patient’s dental journey. She knows she has done her job when she sees her patients leaving our practice with a happy, healthy smile

Her interests outside of the practice include spending time at my beautiful lake house with family and friends, cooking, boxing, and taking my 90 pound pitbull ‘Capone’ for long walks.

Someday she would like to work towards becoming a Dental Hygienist!
