Dr. Willie M. Hardie
Originally from Los Angeles, California, Dr. Hardie received his Bachelors of Science in Psycho-Biology from the University of California – Los Angeles. After graduation, Dr. Hardie continued his education at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry where he discovered his real passion: pediatric dentistry. Upon receiving his Doctorate in Dental Surgery, he interned for one year in Pediatric Medicine at Children’s Rainbow and Babies Hospital in Cleveland, OH, and then returned to the University of Iowa for two additional years of training in Pediatric Dentistry where he participated in a hospital and clinical research-based residency program. "Dr. H" , as his patients like to call him, has gone above and beyond in his field – excelling in care for medically compromised children, behavioral and conscious-sedation techniques, as well as standing as a member of many professional associations including the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, The American Dental Association, the Society of Pediatric Sedation, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Despite his clinical focus and years of educational training, Dr. Hardie is compelled by his patients – taking one-on-one time to get to know them and make them feel comfortable. He thrives on communication, and in today’s rushed and hurried world, that is very hard to come by. We invite you to join Dr. Hardie and his team at Hardie Dentistry for Kids, where your child will receive a top-notch dental experience.
Dr. Hardie proudly calls Vancouver, WA his home and has for the past 17 years. When he isn’t helping children, he enjoys hiking, sports, collecting music, reading, the Pacific ocean, and volunteering in many community activities.
