Cincinnati, Ohio, Jan. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the world’s largest member organization dedicated to the advancement and excellence of comprehensive oral health care, is proud to announce the Fellowship Accreditation of Doctor Tara Hardin DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery).  This distinction designates Dr. Tara Hardin as one of our nation’s top cosmetic dentists and one of only 82 accredited fellows in the entire world since 1984.  Fellowship is the highest level of achievement recognized by the AACD in accordance with their mission of education and excellence.  This honor confirms Dr. Hardin’s cosmetic dental expertise and her dedication to dental health.

In order to earn this honor, Dr. Hardin was required to submit fifty recent cases of life-altering cosmetic dentistry success.  These cases were extensively reviewed and evaluated for detail, design, achievement, aesthetics, health impact and clinical excellence by a team of previously honored dentists that serve as members of the Cosmetic Dental Academy.  The cases included before and after images, an outline of the dental strategic focus and direction and patient testimonials.  AACD Fellowship Chair Bradley J. Olson DDS, FAACD emphasized that “…Accredited Fellow members must complete one of the most rigorous and career altering review programs with evidence-based protocol combined with the assessment of sound clinical judgment. This is truly an outstanding achievement that is a result of hours of work and dedication.”  

Dr. Hardin received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Furman University in 1996 and her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from The Ohio State University in 2000.  She is a Fellow of The Academy of General Dentistry and an active member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association and Cincinnati Dental Society.  She has been named Cincinnati’s Top Dentist by both Cincinnati Magazine and Cincy Magazine’s “Top Doc” issues.  The Miss Ohio USA and Miss Ohio Teen USA pageants have designated Dr. Hardin as their Official Dentist and smile creator.  Visit to learn more about Dr. Tara’s background.
