our team

John D. Harker, DDS

I was born and raised in the Hope, Indiana area. I have two sons and four grandchildren also living in the Hope area. I attended Purdue University and graduated with honors from Indiana University School of Dentistry. I established this practice in 1973 in Hope, after practicing for two years in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I have received a Fellowship and Mastership and Emeritus status from the Academy of General Dentistry. I have participated in over 1000 hours of additional training in all areas of dentistry including implants, surgery and TMJ therapy; this truly is a general practice, since we will treat all types of dental situations. I enjoy all areas of dentistry, especially children. However, all patients of all ages are always welcome. I have served on the school board for 20 years and have served several other professional, church and community organizations.
We have a staff composed of two licensed dental hygienists and three dental assistants who are certified in x-ray and expanded functions. Two front office staff personnel are always here to welcome you. We strive to always make your dental experience enjoyable. Our team has been together for several years, and we have experience in all areas of dentistry. We love children, and all are welcome.
