I have been a dental hygienist for 15 years and have been with Dr. Hardie for 12 of those years. The synergy of Dr. Hardie’s team allows me to provide the best quality dental care for our patients and I am proud to be a part of this team.
I earned my degree at Darton College. I have been married for 16 years and have two beautiful girls. I like making fearful patients feel at ease and my long term patients seem like family. I really love what I do and I will give you something to smile about.
My name is Deborah Davis. My husband and I have been married for 25 years. We have 3 children and 9 grandchildren. My home is in Byron Plantation subdivision in Albany.
I have been working as Dr. Hardie’s assistant for 23 years. Before moving to Albany, I lived in Tallahassee, Fl and worked with Dr. Enwood Ashmore for 14 years. Dentistry has been in my life a long time. Some people ask, “What is your purpose in life?” I feel I’m here to make a difference in someone’s life. There are so many people that are scared of coming to a dentist and if I can be the person they trust because of a friendly smile or a kind word that helps them through a difficult time, then I am the rewarded one.
The technology in dentistry has really evolved throughout the years but the patients are the same.
I love my job but I love my patients the most.
My dental career began at age 14 as an after-school assistant for my uncle’s dental practice in Dothan, Alabama. In 1975, I received my dental hygiene license from the University of Alabama in Birmingham (Alabama Dental Hygiene Program) and practiced in the pedodontic field until moving to Georgia in 1983. After a 22 year tenure as a paralegal, I returned to dentistry with Dr. Hardie in 2005 as Front Office Coordinator. I am a master at helping patients coordinate their schedule with our practice appointment schedule in order to minimize wait time and loss of time at work or school. I know the majority of our patients by name, and remember the little details about each one’s individual situation, giving personalized and professional attention to each patient’s concerns and needs. Additionally, I assist our patients with financial arrangements and insurance matters.
I am a “people person” who enjoys getting to know each patient and am dedicated to ensure their comfort and ease while in our care. I get great satisfaction when a patient enters and leaves our dental office smiling!
I have one daughter and one grandson. In my “spare” time I enjoy Auburn football, working out at the gym, riding my Harley, and spending lots of time with friends and family (especially at the BEACH)!
I am Kelsey Goforth from Leesburg, Ga. In 2013 I graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at Darton State College. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Kyle, reading and visiting with family. I have been working with Dr. Hardie since graduating Darton. Working at Dr. Hardie's office is like working with family. Everyone here is focused on our patient's well-being. Patient education is very important to all of us. I enjoy building relationships with all patients and helping them maintain a beautiful smile!
I have been a member of Dr. Hardie's team since March of 2016. I work with our patients' insurance and financial concerns and have worked in the dental profession for over 14 years. I help patients plan treatment and can answer any of the financial questions they may have to move forward with their treatment. I truly care about the level of care that every patient receives, and will go out of my way to help each one. I am proud to be a part of such a caring dental team.
I love spending time with my husband Todd and our two daughters Taylor and Kelsey. We enjoy traveling, kayaking, horseback riding, going to the beach, and of course spending time with family and friends!

I have been with Dr. Hardie's team since August 2015. I currently live in Albany, Ga with my husband Tommy. As a "blended" family we have 3 children, Lexi 22, Bryson 16 and Kadie 10. I enjoy crafting, photography and spending time with our families.
I have 20 years of experience as a dental assistant. I enjoy working with everyone on our team and getting to know our patients. It warms my heart when I have a patient to thank me for making them feel more at ease. It's also a good feeling when I see a patient come in and they recognize me from another office and they tell me they feel better knowing I'm here. It's good to know I've had such an impact on those patients and hope I continue to make a difference for patients in the years to come. Your dental experience doesn't have to be a bad experience.
