Dr. Yakov Khaydatov
Dr. Khaydatov Immigrated to the United States (Phoenix, AZ) in
1991 from Russia. He attended grade school and high school in the
Phoenix area. He then attended and received his undergraduate
degree with Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Arizona
State University. He then moved to Boston, MA and graduated
with a D.M.D degree from Tufts University School of Dental
Medicine in 2009.
Dr. Khaydatov’s pursuit of a career in Dentistry happened by
accident at a young age of 16. He was a patient at 19 th Ave Dental
Care in need of a root canal treatment. That day, Dr. Marc Kay
offered him an opportunity to shadow him on a temporary basis.
This exposure sparked a genuine interest, which over the next 5
years as a dental assistant, fueled into a passion towards the field
Dr. Khaydatov has been practicing dentistry in the Phoenix area
since 2009. Although he has been associated with 19 th Ave Dental
care since 1997, he became a Partner/Owner in 2015. When Dr.
“K” is not attending dental seminars to keep updated on the newest
dental trends, he enjoys his many hobbies. He is an avid basketball
fan (his favorite team is the Phoenix Suns). He also enjoys
swimming, working out at TruHit fitness, and traveling with his
wife and two children.
Dr Khaydatov really enjoys working with a great Team at 19th Ave
Dental Care and looks forward to providing all of our patients with
outstanding comprehensive Dental Care.
