Dr. James Hardy has been operating a flourishing practice for 40 years right in his home state of North Carolina. He completed his undergrad at NC A&T and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at UNC Chapel Hill in 1981, where he was recognized for outstanding clinical work in endodontics by the American College of Dentistry. Within months, he opened his practice in Louisburg, NC; where he would work as a solo practitioner until enlisting his eldest daughter, Dr. Alecia Hardy, to work alongside him almost 30 years later upon her completion of dental school.
Dr. Hardy attributes his success to being naturally compassionate and meticulous. His rural upbringing instilled in him the desire to educate, prevent, and effectively treat residents of small communities. He takes pride in improving the health conditions of those living in areas with limited access to dental care. However, Dr. Hardy’s outreach draws patients from various states due to the solid rapport established through decades of impressive service.
Dr. Hardy is always researching new and effective technologies to complement his treatment and participates in professional development. A portion of the population Dr. Hardy serves needs extensive dental work in order to achieve optimal health and functionality. He and Dr. Alecia Hardy are proud to offer Hybridge dental implant solutions to North Carolina residents. Hybridge offers a permanent solution, which is right in line with what his patients expect; and with his expertise coupled with this technology, he is able to give patients not only a beautiful smile, but, a highly practical one.
Dr. Hardy’s community service does not stop with his practice. He also heads a dental clinic at the Wake County Detention Center each Friday to provide necessary dental care to inmates. When he’s not working on smiles from the mountains to the coast, Dr. Hardy enjoys golfing, singing, and spending time with his three daughters and wife. He is a member of the Old North State Dental Society and the Presbyterian Church on Davie Street in Raleigh.
For as long as she has been alive, Dr. Alecia has been immersed in the world of dentistry. Dr. Alecia received her Bachelor of Science in biology from Wake Forest University, magna cum laude. After undergrad, she was torn between deciding to become a heart surgeon or a dentist, but upon attending the Medical Education Development Program, the choice became clear.
With the completion of her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2007 from her father’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with honors, she joined him at his long-standing practice in her hometown of Louisburg, North Carolina. Her specialization in implant and cosmetic procedures inspired her to implement Hybridge to her extensive repertoire of treatment. She understands that functionality of the dental prosthetics she offers is essential for her patients and this is reflected in the work she does.
Fluent in Spanish, Dr. Alecia was offered to participate in an outreach program in Mexico. Today, her fluency helps her to serve even more of her community and connect with patients from a variety of backgrounds.
Alongside her father and her dedicated team members, Hardy Smiles Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry is proud to offer North Carolina residents Hybridge smiles. The Hardy's have established an unmatched rapport with their patients. Their outreach spans multiple states, a variety of ages, and a range of flexibility that comes with being endowed with extensive knowledge. Many a patient can attest to the compassion and scrutiny that these doctors operate.
Dr. Alecia understands that sometimes walking into an office can be intimidating; this is why she takes time to ensure that the patient feels at peace during their appointment and leave satisfied and with a better conception of their personal dental health. Dr. Alecia works with diligence to engage each patient on a personal level and to reassure them that good oral health habits make a huge difference in their overall wellbeing. She is always looking for the best ways and alternative options for her patients to have at their disposal, which is why she has integrated Hybridge into her treatment.
