Dr. Eric Hardy
Dr. Eric Hardy decided to become a dentist as a young boy. At an early age he knew that he wanted a job where he could help people and after spending some time with his dentist uncle, he knew it was the career for him. Dentistry gave him the opportunity to combine several passions—Helping people, working skillfully with his hands, science, and technology.
“My philosophy is simple. I believe in the ‘golden rule’ in life and in dentistry- I treat people and their mouths as I would like to be treated. I treat everyone who sits in my chair as if I would treat my own family.”“I enjoy dentistry because of the feeling I get inside when I help someone. Whether it is treating someone with a toothache, restoring a smile with cosmetic dentistry, or something as simple as a filling, I really like to help the person on the other end of those teeth.”Dr Hardy grew up in a military family. His family was able to live and travel all over the world. His parents retired to Tucson in the early 1990s and he has considered himself a Tucsonan ever since.After graduating from dental school in 2003, Dr. Hardy joined the United States Air Force and practiced dentistry as a military officer for five years. During this time he provided dentistry to our armed forces members in Ohio, Korea, and Florida. After completing his military service, he moved back to Tucson to join our team of dentists at Dental Care on Golf Links.Outside of his practice, Dr. Hardy enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. He enjoys many outdoor activies, and spends much of his free time hiking around Arizona’s beautiful hiking trails. His hobbies include hiking, running, mountain biking, skiing, hunting, and photography.
