Dr. Tara Hardin

Dr. Tara Hardin developed a passion for dentistry by watching her dad at a young age, and has since taken over the practice. Dr. Tara graduated from Furman University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1996 and then received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2000 from The Ohio State University. She continued her pursuit of advanced training at The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies earning a fellowship with LVI. Hundreds of hours of continuing education each year keep Dr. Tara Hardin and her team among an elite class of dentists who provide exceptional esthetic and restorative dentistry.

This hard work and commitment to staying knowledgeable in the industry also earned her the honor of Accredited Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, an honor not many receive. In fact, she is the only female Fellow in the state of Ohio.

Dr. Dane Avondoglio

Dr. Dane Avondoglio grew up in northwest NJ. He graduated from the University of Richmond and before starting dental school, he was a cancer research biologist at the National Cancer Institute where he published two papers. He also received a Master of Science degree at UMDNJ in biomedical sciences and was a middle school math and English teacher. Upon graduating Rutgers School of Dental Medicine with Dean’s list distinction and awards in implant dentistry, he completed a one year residency at the VA Medical Center in Washington, DC. There he increased his exposure and skillset, doing everything from smile makovers to advanced implant surgeries.

Well-trained in all aspects of dentistry from his residency, he knew finding a good mentor to guide his interests and investing in himself through continuing education would be top priorities. Dr. Dane is currently studying at the Kois Center in Seattle, working through the comprehensive curriculum, and he hopes to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Tara's accolades in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. His interests in dentistry involve restorative, esthetics, implants, and photography. After two years of private practice in northern NJ, he is humbled and honored to join Drs. Hardin and their team.

Jessica Clarke

Jessica graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2000, and started her career at Hardin Advanced Dentistry that fall. She has taken countless hours of continuing education on subjects such as: ultrasonic therapy, subgingival and supragingival polishing, oral-systemic links, and medicaments to treat periodontal disease. She is passionate about connecting with her patients in a way that will motivate them to maintain their confident smile. One of her favorite quotes is:

"The eyes are the window to the soul, the mouth is the window to your health."

Jessica truly believes a persons health radiates from their smile. To her, a healthy smile not only means free from disease, but also the ability to feel proud and confident when smiling. That's health. Being part of the transformation a person goes through when their smile becomes their best accessory is heart warming.

Some of Jessica's favorite patients to treat are the fearful ones. It's her top priority to ensure your experience is a positive one.

In her spare time, Jessica enjoys escaping to family life with her husband Adam, and their 3 girls: Rowan, Finley, and London. She also enjoys reading, sewing, and gardening.

Jessica Finley

Jessica Finley

Dental Assistant

Jessica Finley

Jessica grew up in the small town of Harrison, Ohio, and graduated from Harrison High School in 2009. Her dental career began when she graduated from the dental assisting program at Fortis College in 2014. She did not get braces until later in life, and was very ashamed of her smile growing up. Making the decision to pursue a healthy, confident smile showed her first hand that it can be life changing in many aspects. This is what piqued her interest in the dental field and what drives her every day. She loves getting to know her patients and creating an atmosphere that they did not know existed at a dental office.

When she is not at the office she enjoys cooking, camping, and making memories with her sons, Levi and Anthony, and their dad, Scott.
