Dr. Hardy's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hardy "I love being an orthodontist! There is nothing more rewarding than creating beautiful, natural smiles for my patients. I first realized that orthodontics was my calling in life during college, when I spent time assisting in an orthodontic office. At the time, I was working in a facility for at-risk youth and taking a full load of science courses. I wanted a career in the medical field where I could be both a scientist and help adolescent patients. Orthodontics was the perfect fit! I love boosting the self confidence of my patients as we give them beautiful smiles. Life can be tough, especially as an adolescent, and getting a new smile can make all the difference in the world. Education My dental training started at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Dental School. I served as student body president of my school and graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree, receiving several student awards, including the American College of Dentists Outstanding Student Award and the Pierre Fauchard Academy Student Award. I was also inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society. Following my dental training, I was fortunate to be selected as an orthodontic resident at UCSF, where I completed 3 additional years of orthodontic training and was awarded a Masters of Science degree in Oral and Craniofacial Sciences. Following graduation, I was honored to become certified by the American Board of Orthodontists, after I passed a rigorous clinical examination of orthodontic treatments I had completed. Beyond the Office When I am not caring for our wonderful patients, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife, Jess, and I met in college and have two adorable monsters named Alice and Will. As a family we enjoy hiking, running, visiting National Parks, and many other outdoor activities. We also love reading in our family and usually have a very large stack of library books somewhere in the house. Our family is passionate about kindness, diversity, art, science, inclusion, environmental sustainability, and education. We believe in striving to leave every place, relationship, or situation better than it was initially.
