Dr. Olga Hardin
Dr. Olga Hardin was born and raised in Russia. She came to USA in 1998 to pursue higher education. Dr. Hardin graduated with a degree in Finance from The George Washington University in Washington, DC. Upon graduation, she worked for an investment bank and later for Fortune 100 companies. Dr. Hardin continued to excel in Corporate America, and yet she felt dissatisfied as she saw no direct impact on people around her. Growing up, she remembers her mom, who was a cardiologist, saving people’s lives and how grateful those patients and their families were. Dr. Hardin knew she wanted to do something where she can make a difference in people’s life. She decided to go back to school to pursue her true passion- dentistry.
In 2010 Dr. Hardin was accepted into highly acclaimed Dental school at University of Southern California (USC). While at USC, she had a great honor to learn from world renowned faculty such as Dr. Pascal Magne and Dr. Stanley Malamed to mention a few. Dr. Magne is one of the world’s most renowned esthetic dentist and a founding father of biomimetic dentistry (minimally invasive). Dr. Malamed, is a founding father of dental anesthesia, who continues to lecture around the world. While at USC, Dr. Hardin was accepted into highly competitive program ran by Dr. Malamed. The program allowed her to expand her knowledge in managing dental emergencies, as well as giving early hands on exposure into IV sedation dentistry.
Dr. Hardin has moved to Dallas, TX in 2014. She enjoys practicing all aspects of general dentistry. Dr. Hardin strongly believes in continuing education and staying on top of new advancements dentistry has to offer. She is one of very few general dentists in the area who offers IV sedation to her patients. Dr. Hardin strives to ensure her patients have the best dental experience possible.
When Dr. Hardin is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family: her husband, 5 kids, a dog and a cat who they adopted from a shelter. She loves to garden, fish and travel. She has been to 26 countries and hope to resume traveling again soon.
