Josh Hardin, DMD
Dr. Hardin was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. His younger years were spent living at the base of Mt. Hood, Oregon, taking full advantage of all the outdoors had to offer. He is passionate about sharing his love of nature and of teaching people. Dr. Hardin attended Portland State University to earn his Bachelor's Degree. He made sure to take classes to prepare him for the detailed art of Dentistry which included Advanced Jewelry Design. He had the opportunity to tie in education, teaching, and his desire to serve by becoming a counselor at Camp Kiwana's, an outdoor school for children and adults with special needs.
Dentistry is the career he has focused on from a very young age. He has obtained many years of wisdom passed down from his Father and Grandfather who are both in the Dental field. Hard work, fueled by passion allowed him to be one of the youngest in his Dental School Class at Oregon Health Sciences School of Dentistry, where he graduated near the top of his Class with Honors in 2016. He is engaged in extensive continuing educational programs, and is a member of The American Dental Association and The Academy of General Dentists.
He is happily married to his high school sweetheart, Sydney and their home is blessed with Emmett (5) and Rory (2), along with another baby due this year. At home, he enjoys playing outdoors with his family, gaming with Emmett, and teaching Rory new tricks on the trampoline. Both his sons are already very curious about Dentistry, and love "working" on Dad's teeth whenever they get the chance. His commitment to serving his patients is a top priority, which is why he gives each patient his personal cell phone number in order to contact him in the case of an emergency. He looks forward to the opportunity to serve you!
John Kwant, DMD
Dr. John Kwant is a native Utahn. He was born and raised in the Holladay area, but considers his real home to be in the mountains. As a youth, he would disappear and go exploring along the hills of the Wasatch Front, with Millcreek Canyon being one of his favorites. This knowledge of the local trails and paths helped him later in life when he was part of Salt Lake County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team. His love of the outdoors hasn't diminished with time and you will still find him wandering in the hills looking for a new route and looking out for the local wildlife. Wildlife conservation is one of his passions and he actively participates in it locally and internationally. Dr. Kwant graduated from the University of Utah and attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Immediately after graduating, he joined the United States Air Force and completed an intense residency at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi. After Keesler, he was stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, Montana. He was there during the September 11 attack and spent many long nights in the dental clinic getting airmen ready to deploy. Dr. Kwant served as the forensics officer while on active duty and was called upon several times to use those skills. After separating from active duty, he joined the 419th Medical Squadron, Hill Air Force Base, Utah and served as a reservist and the dental commander for several years. Besides dentistry, Dr. Kwant's other great love in life is his family. He and his amazing wife, Cindy, have two little boys with curly red hair. Johnny (5 yrs) and Andy (2 yrs) have as much energy as nuclear power plant and keep everybody at the Kwant home busy and young. If you ever need to reach Dr. Kwant and he doesn't answer the phone, he is probably outside playing red rover or tag. So, come on by, join in and have some smores and he'll talk about all things dental or whatever else is on your mind.
