Born and raised in North Carolina, Dr. Harden is a southern girl at heart. She attended North Carolina State University to receive her Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences. From a young age, she had always wanted to be a dentist after having braces when she was 8 years old and she followed that path all the way.
Dr. Harden earned her dental degree from University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. Following dental school, to acquire more experience and knowledge, she did a general practice residency at the VA hospital in West Palm Beach. That experience at the VA was educational but most of all very rewarding working with our veterans.
After her residency, Dr. Harden met her future husband; a native South Floridian and he kept her here. After they got married, they soon had their 2 amazing boys and now are living the wild, fun and wonderful Florida life.
When not working, Dr. Harden is in full mommy-mode. Her family is what she lives for-volunteering at school, taking kids to sports practices and games, homework, boating on the weekend (her sons’ and husbands’ favorite thing), and playing outside.
Dr. Harden’s main goal is to provide the upmost quality of care and to make each patient comfortable and happy while being at the dentist. She is thrilled to be part of Great Smile Dental and can’t wait to get to know her patients and make them feel wonderful about their smile.
