What Patients Say

Employer Dental Plans May Change…

“My employer has changed its dental benefit plan over the years, and the most recent plan has a list of network providers…

Even though Dr. Hardinger is not on the list of “in network” providers, and thus “out of network.” My wife and myself have chosen to remain with Dr. Hardinger’s practice. His work is exceptional, as is the staff he has surrounded himself with.”

Doris Throne

Sensitive Teeth

Doris Throne

“I’m the biggest chicken when it comes to getting my teeth cleaned. I have receded gums on my lower front teeth and the roots are very sensitive to having my teeth cleaned.

Today Nancy RDH recommended a product for the first time that was polished onto my sensitive teeth. It really worked! I hardly felt a thing when my teeth were cleaned. And they didn’t use any numbing products so I walked out without feeling numb or having any bad taste in my mouth.

Thank you, Dr. Hardinger and Nancy, RDH, for making this a pleasant experience.”

Lila Freese

I Am Using Custom Made Fluoride Trays To Stop Decay

Lila Freese

“I had not been to a dentist for a while, and when it came in for an exam Dr Hardinger diagnosed a lot of cavities on the roots of my teeth. We discussed a plan to restore the worst ones, and then try to stop the others. A custom tray that held the gel into the hard to reach places of my roots was made. I wore this once a day for 5 minutes. After three months my teeth regained their strength and we stopped the decay! I am so excited not to have to do mutliple fillings. I recommend this preventive method and am happy that I tried it”

“A Very Happy Daughter,” says Lori, (mom)

Dr. Hardinger and the Orthodontist collaborated

Happy Daughter

“Our daughter had a gingivectomy to increase the display of her natural teeth which reduced the swelled gum tissue that came on after wearing braces. This made a huge difference in the appearance of her teeth.

I would definitely recommend this procedure to anyone in the same situation.

Dr. Hardinger and the orthodontists collaborated on treatment procedures and we are very happy with the results.”

Chuck Dunn

Dental Health and Medical Health

Chuck Dunn

“Jesus Christ is my personal Lord and Savior, and I love telling others about Him. I had several dental problems and Dr. Hardinger recognized that constant mouth breathing affected my teeth, so he arranged for me to see a medical doctor and evaluated me for sleep apnea. Now that I started that therapy I feel better, and I am confident that my teeth will last now that my breathing is improved.”

Dr Hardinger helped me to get dental and medical health information

Ken Wiley

“I have known Dr. Hardinger for many years and not only has he helped me with my teeth he also did business with my furniture store. I joked, “Isn’t that tooth you fixed under warranty?” Dr Hardinger gave me a puzzled look like I knew better. Then,on telling him about my nutrition interests he informed me about Mercy Hospital’s Wellness Lab where I can order economical lab tests myself. Then my tests results will be sent directly to me.”

Removable Partial Dentures Work Just Fine

I wondered how my worn down teeth could be restored

“Over ten years ago Dr. Hardinger helped design and fabricate removable partial dentures to cover my worn teeth. Recently similar removable partials were made to replace the old ones. Dr. Hardinger had explained alternative plans with implants but the partials have worked just fine”

Cindy Osier

One Appointment Dentistry

Dr Hardinger did it in only one appointment

“For quite a while I had been considering having some cosmetic dental work done at Dr. Hardinger’s. Many years ago some bonding was done that was wearing out, and when it came time to take care of this, Dr. Hardinger did it for me in only one appointment.

Using the nitrous oxide also made the time go quickly and I could relax during the appointment.

It was funny what my daughter said about it. ‘It’s really new! It will take me a while to get used to seeing your new smile.”

Bill Burt

Uneven Tooth Wear

Bill Burt

“Because my teeth were wearing unevenly, Dr Hardinger suggested I do something to improve the shape of my teeth.

I probably should have had braces as a youth for my dental crowding. Dr. Jon suggested smoothing them to more natural shapes.”

It only took a few minutes, and without the need for local anesthetic. The teeth do look a lot better, and they floss easier improving my dental home care.”

Judy Mathes

Bite Not Quite Right

.

“Dr. Jon has been my dentist since he came to town years ago. Because of his excellent care, I really do enjoy good dental health except lately, I had a problem. It was because my bite was not closing properly. Dr. Jon took study casts and marked a pathway to improve my bite then we worked together to rebalance my bite by adjusting and adding to my teeth.

It was remarkable how much better my bite feels, and my chewing is more efficient.”

Terry Bailey

Uneven Tooth Wear

Bill Burt

“I would like to tell others about a nice outcome for me at Dr. Hardinger’s office. He corrected my smile with simple adjustments of my teeth.

He recognized that they weren’t just crowded but that they were too tall for their width. He explained how the teeth already had the correct proportions in them and adjusting the length would bring this out.

I was so pleased with the results that I came back for minor adjustments of my lower teeth also. This type of attention to detail makes Dr. Hardinger’s practice special, and the adjustment he did surprised me in how much it benefited my smile!”

Louis Collins

Implant Retained Denture

Problem Solved

“My old set of dentures was wearing out, and I had asked Dr. Hardinger to make me a new set. I would have had him start right then, but he suggested looking into dental implants to retain my lower denture.

The local oral surgeon was able to place two implants and after a healing time Dr Hardinger made the new lower with snaps that hold it in place. This helped my speech, chewing, appearance and confidence in wearing dentures.”

Whatever Our Dental Needs Are

BethJennings

“Dr Hardinger and his office staff have been with me and my husband Jim long enough to appreciate the various services a person might need over their lives.

It is one thing to have a single service like a nice fitting crown, but their practice is more than an individual service because I know this office is there to help me for whatever our needs are.

I want good dental health and to enjoy it throughout my life and I am glad that Dr. Hardinger and his office are there to help achieve this goal. ”

Dental Care at Dr. Hardinger’s

.

“Please let me tell you about my dental care at Dr. Hardinger’s office in Mason City. For one, they took care of me as an individual and secondly listened to my dental concerns. I explained my concerns and they had an answer for them based on my individual needs. My husband and I consulted together with Dr Hardinger and we accepted his plan.

Their office made the whole process a pleasant experience, so that when I was baking holiday treats I included them in my gifts and several times I dropped off some homemade goodies for them. It was really fun to give back to them for all they were doing for me. And if you can take a tip from me, treat yourself to good dental health at Dr. Hardinger’s.”
