"I had my sons oral ties revised and not only was this affordable in comparison to other places off the mountain I felt like the care was excellent. This is such a gem for us in the High-country: access to quality affordable care that otherwise would not have happened. We will definitely continue our children’s dental needs here for as long as we are in the area."

"I think I was more nervous than my daughter about having two baby teeth extracted. It was over so fast and the staff at Bluebird was amazing! She did so well and I would recommend them for any pediatric dentistry needs again and again and again!"

HR, Google

 

"My 4 year old daughter loves this office! They explain everything in a way she can understand and helps her to feel very comfortable. She’s had a tooth pulled and baby root canal at this office where they had to put her under anesthesia and she still loves to visit her dentist! Grateful for such a great group of people to grow with!"

MM, Google

 

"I loved Dr. Parisa and our hygienists today! They were so kind and professional, my girls felt comfortable and they did a great job. We are new to the area and were nervous about leaving our old practice in Charlotte, but so thankful to find such compassionate care here in Boone!"  T, Google

 

"This office is amazing. Unlike some of the other pediatric dental offices they take the time to individually treat your child in a private room (rather than assembly line teeth cleanings with 10 other screaming kids in the same room). They were fantastic with my son interacting with him, thoroughly explaining everything and letting him feel the tools. The entire staff, clinical and clerical were very friendly, welcoming, and obviously cared about what they do. I cannot recommend them enough."  HS, Google

 

"The kindness and gentle care that was shown to my 4 year old son and by letting him guide when he was ready for each step of the appointment allowed him to have a complete cleaning as well as X-ray of his teeth without fear or anxiety. I cannot recommend Bluebird Pediatric Dentistry enough for families that struggle with children who become stressed or overwhelmed with the dentist."  NO, Google

"I recently took my almost 3-year-old for his first dental visit ever, and it was a great experience.

"They did an awesome job! My child had to have her tooth removed and she was so nervous. They did a good job at making her feel comfortable and relaxed. I would definitely recommend them."  TL, Google

 

"I and my son had a great experience. The first visit at the office was great. Dr Hardaway was kind, patience and answered all my questions and understood my anxiety.  My son had to be put to sleep at the Boone hospital to take care of some teeth issues and Dr Hardaway and the staff there were so patient and kind with my 4 year old autistic son and me as a nervous parent. His comfort is his tablet or mama's phone and one of the staff let him watch his phone(so mama could have her phone) before going to sleep for surgery. That was incredibly kind. Overall Dr Hardaway and Watuaga Medical Center are good and I'd use both again if needed. But let's hope that doesn't happen. Great pediatric care. Understanding and patient of all kids needs no matter their developmental struggles if any. As a parent of a autistic child thats all I care about. Thank you Dr Hardaway and staff at Watuaga Hospital for a good experience."  SP, Google

“You all were so great with him  I thought it was going to be a battle but he instantly took to everyone there. The way you showed him what was going to happen next with a toy dinosaur he picked out and allowed him to take his time and get comfortable with each step made all of the difference! The fact that he was upset when his appointment was over speaks volumes .”

“Hello. My name is Laney.  Dr. Martha is a really great dentist. She makes my brown spots go away and can make a cool thing on your tooth.  And it’s pretty cool and you should go. And then at the end you get cool surprises.

When I grow up I want to be a teacher, dentist, and an investigator.”  Laney, age 5½

 

"When my daughter's teeth were severely injured in a sledding accident, Dr. Hardaway provided exemplary care and reassurance.  During numerous follow-up appointments in Tampa with our regular pediatric dentist and a highly respected endodontist, we repeatedly heard that the care given was beyond anything they had seen before--both in skillfulness and  vigilance.  All of my daughter's teeth were saved thanks to Dr. Hardaway's expertise  (and God's blessing).  She became our children's primary dentist, and we continue to appreciate how extraordinary a doctor she is.  Not only is she a highly intelligent, thoughtful practitioner, she is exceptionally patient, gentle and professional.  All six of my children trust her and enjoy visits to her office.  Small town kindness coupled with university/research-scientist intellect--we have the best of all world in Dr. Hardaway and couldn't be more pleased." - B. Hengst

My daughter said she loves them because they are very sweet and friendly and that she made her teeth really clean and smells good :) We are very pleased during her visit and keeps asking me when’s her next appointment!:) Thank you bluebird for making my daughter happy!"  - LV Quig, facebook

 

"I highly recommend this pediatric dentist office!!!  I have to give a shout to Bluebird Pediatric Dentisty!! Our first visit with Dr. Hardaway and her staff was today. They all were awesome. Dr. Hardaway used to be at OP Smiles in Boone and we have missed her since she moved on. We are fortunate to have her here in Ashe. At this time you do have to pay up front, but they give you the paper work to send to your insurance for reimbursement." - M. Stuerwald, facebook

"Dr. Hardaway is amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens well, and sees each patient as an individual. She went above and beyond for our family to ensure the best solutions were found for a very difficult situation. She invested a lot of her own time and energy on our behalf and we will be forever grateful. Her caring way, innovative treatment solutions, and willingness to work with us made all the difference." - MS, google

 

"Dr. Hardaway became our dental provider while she was in Boone years ago, when my daughters were just a year old. We followed her when she moved her practice to Asheville and continued to have wonderful experiences. My family and I are thrilled that Dr. Hardaway is back in the High Country. The office of Bluebird Pediatric Dentistry is designed in such a way that is very kid friendly, but calming at the same time, offering kids creative play without overstimulation. I would highly recommend Dr. Hardaway and her staff for your family's dental needs." - LM, google
