I do not recommend anyone going to see this dentist. This is a dishonest dentist. Don't let this man's demeanor fool you. Twice he has chipped my teeth; one time severely through his inattention to his work. I honestly believe that both times this man knew he had chipped my teeth but failed to mention anything to me in hopes that I might not notice. I did notice both times, especially the severely chipped tooth, so the next time I visited this dentist to get my permanent cap put on, I told him I wanted to discuss this chipped tooth with him. He said let's get your other work taken care of first, so I said OK. I didn't know it at the time, but he then immediately proceeded to grind down my severely chipped tooth along with the tooth next to it all without my permission or knowledge. I just thought all the grinding was due to my temporary cap having a lot of cement on it. And then after everything was said and done, he tried to deceive and mislead me as to what he had done. He tried to get me to believe that he had done nothing more to my teeth than what he was only supposed to have done-namely install a permanent cap. This Dentist is truly a dishonest dentist, and I am currently in the process of filing a complaint with the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners against him. I do not believe that I am the first one Dr. Hardin has done this too. I think what he did to me is some of his ""standard practice"" whenever he destroys, or chips, one of his patients teeth. I think there are many out there he has done this to, and I think some of them just may have let him get away with it.
