Paul Harder II, DDS
"I knew that I wanted to become a dentist from the time I was in seventh grade. Watching my father’s devotion to his practice and personal care for his patients attracted me to the profession. After earning my dental degree, I found myself returning to my boyhood home and joining the practice my father helped build back in 1962."
