Alecia Hardy, DDS
Dr. Alecia Hardy has literally been around dentistry her entire life. She was born the same year her father began practicing as a general dentist in her rural hometown of Louisburg, North Carolina. Upon completing her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (with honors) in 2007 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, she joined her father’s long-standing practice.
Patients who leave Dr. Alecia’s chair are literally amazed by her ability to perform pain-free procedures and often compliment her chair-side manner. Patients who once feared the dentist, leave admiring Dr. Alecia!
Each week, her schedule is filled with patients of all ages and backgrounds who need everything from a filling, to a set of dentures, to a surgical extraction, to a smile makeover. True to her nature, Dr. Alecia makes sure every procedure is precise and every patient is pleased.
Originally, Dr. Alecia, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Wake Forest University, had intentions of becoming a heart surgeon. Following high school, she enrolled at Wake Forest University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Biology in preparation for medical school. She set her sights on dentistry after taking part in an intensive Medical Education Development Program and earned numerous merit scholarships.
Her training included rotations at public health departments and hospitals alike. Her intense study of the Spanish language also offered Dr. Alecia an opportunity to participate in a dental school outreach program at an orphanage in Mexico during 2004. Today, her fluency in Spanish is advantageous for serving the local Hispanic community.
Above all, Dr. Alecia strives to engage each patient one-on-one and reassure them that good oral health habits can make a difference in their overall well-being.
James G. Hardy, DDS
Dr. James G. Hardy, a member of Old North State Dental Society, established his Louisburg, North Carolina practice in 1981, intent on offering access to affordable dental care. His dentistry, which embodies a genuine will to help others, has flourished over the years by adding patients across Franklin, Eastern Wake, Nash, Vance, and Warren counties.
A native of rural North Carolina himself, Dr. Hardy easily identified the tremendous need to improve oral health through education, prevention, and effective treatment in small communities. He grew up the son of a sharecropper in North Hampton County. Today, he is a well-known local dentist committed to helping patients transform not only their smile, but their overall health.
In 1981, he completed his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill where he was recognized for outstanding clinical work in Endodontics by the American College of Dentistry. That same year, he hung his sign as a solo practitioner: James G. Hardy, D.D.S. in the heart of Louisburg with one dental assistant and three operatory rooms in 1981. He simultaneously treated patients at a public health clinic in Soul City, North Carolina as a 2-year service commitment to National Health Service Corps.
Today, the practice boasts 10 operatories and a staff of 12, including his first-ever employee and his first-born child, Dr. Alecia Hardy. Together, as a father/daughter dental team they also operate a dental clinic at the Wake County Detention Center each Friday to provide necessary dental care to inmates.
Dr. Hardy attributes his success to being a naturally compassionate and patient person who makes time to deliver “old-fashioned” patient care. He is most proud of the impact he has made improving the dental IQ and oral health conditions throughout an entire area where access to care was once limited.
When not busy fixing teeth or spending time with his wife, three daughters, and extended family, he is active on the golf course and within his congregation at Davie Street Presbyterian in Raleigh. James and his daughter Alecia also enjoy long distance running.
