Dental Center Team

Doctor Keber headshot

Dr. Kristine Keber

Director of Clinical Operations

As the Dental Center Clinic Director, Dr. Keber is proud to serve our community's dental needs with compassion, warmth, and expertise.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Dr. Keber graduated from Seton Hall University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. While attending dental school at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health in Mesa, she fell in love with the beautiful, warm weather and decided to call Arizona home. Upon graduating dental school, Dr. Keber chose to expand her skill set and knowledge by completing a one-year AEGD residency in Phoenix through NYU Langone. Completing this program provided her with advanced training in all aspects of dentistry, including restorative dentistry, oral surgery, dentures, and dental implants.

Dr. Keber has both private practice and non-profit experience, making her a perfect fit here at New Horizon Institute. Dr. Keber’s passion for dentistry and community health have aligned to find her best suited for a career in a non-profit dental clinic. When she is not polishing smiles, you might also find her exercising, hiking, practicing yoga, or spending time in the sun. Dr. Keber is a firm believer in whole-body, integrated oral care and takes pride in her commitment to providing a positive dental experience for her patients.

Dr. Steven Vorholt

Surgical Director, NHSC

Dr. Steven Vorholt holds a simple goal – to provide all patients with a strong, healthy smile they can truly love. By getting to know your story and oral health goals, Dr. Vorholt can create a personalized treatment plan designed to meet your unique needs. From the moment you enter the Surgical Center doors, Dr. Vorholt seeks to restore your oral health and give you a smile you can’t wait to share with others.

Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, Dr. Vorholt graduated with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from The Ohio State University in 2013. Shortly after attaining his degree, Dr. Vorholt started a private practice in the Columbus area. Immersing himself in as much continuing education as possible, he eventually developed a great passion for dental implant surgery. After 6 years of building a successful general practice in Ohio, Dr. Vorholt followed his passion and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to take a full-time position with the New Horizon Surgical Center. You will see him mentoring courses and coordinating care for all implant patients through the Implant Pathway program.

Dr. Vorholt is currently a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and is actively pursuing his Associate Fellowship with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He plans to eventually earn his Diplomate in the American Board of Oral Implantology and finds teaching other doctors how to successfully incorporate implant dentistry into their own practices to be his proudest professional endeavor.

Dr. Farkas

Dentist

Dr. Andrew Farkas graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center School of Dentistry at Houston, Texas in 1996 and completed a residency certificate program of Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) in 1997. In 2019, he completed an accredited 300-hour AAID, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry course at Loma Linda University in California. The program fulfilled the continuing education requirement of the Associate Fellow member process of the highly regarded AAID organization. This implantology specialty program provides a thorough understanding of diagnostic and treatment modalities necessary to properly treat patients with dental implants. His implant dentistry skills include: dental implant placement for a single tooth, multiple teeth, full arch, all-on-four, sinus / gum / bone grafting and sinus augmentation. He has completed advanced training in IV and oral sedation administration along with ACLS - Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification.

After dedicating twenty-four years to his private practice located in Houston, Texas and completing the sale of ownership to his associate in late 2020, Dr. Andrew Farkas founded Smile Implantology. Implant dentistry consisted of thirty percent of his practice production and collections prior to its sale. His Houston practice was regarded with a ‘Black Belt’ designation; an esteemed honor from The Dental Success Institute, meaning his production, collections and profitability were in the top 5% of practicing dentists in the country. Dr. Farkas offered the highest level of care and advanced technology to multi-generations of patients with an impeccable reputation of excellence. Smile Implantology launches off on his vast experience in private, comprehensive dentistry, with a focus specific to implant dentistry. Replacing over six hundred missing teeth with dental implants for his patients has been some of the most rewarding work he would like to continue.

Completing over six hundred hours of continuing education in the past three years alone, Dr. Farkas continually researches and implements available technologies for optimum procedural success. This tremendous investment in himself as a practitioner is why he is referred to as a ‘Super-Dentist’, with the ability to perform both general and advanced dental procedures. In March of 2021, Dr. Farkas joined the highly acclaimed clinical team at Implant Pathway in Tempe, Arizona to pursue patient care and mentoring other practitioners seeking similar success in their own practice.

New Horizons changed my life! I can smile and not cover my lower face in shame, I can finally take pictures with my family, and I can finally have confidence! Every member of the staff there was beyond sweet and reassuring and their positive energy made this such a surreal experience! I never would have afforded this HUGE procedure on my own (though I’ve tried for YEARS!) but New Horizons made it financially possible for me to get a new beautiful smile. Thank you for changing my life for the better!

I would rate them 10 stars if I could! They have state-of-the-art equipment. They have an exceptionally professional and courteous staff and the overall cost is about 1/4 of the price of anyone else! I have been treated with the utmost respect from every staff member and I feel genuinely cared for!
