Meet Dr. Kirby L. Hart III
Dr. Hart with his family
Growing up in Dothan, Dr. Hart watched both his father and grandfather care for their patients with friendliness, compassion, and integrity – his father as a doctor and his grandfather as a dentist. These traits remain a cornerstone of his practice today. Dr. Hart is dedicated to ensuring your care is always provided in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere while he provides world-class care with world-class technologies. Restoring your confidence, improving your oral and overall health – and quality of life – is Dr. Hart’s aim for your smile.
After being awarded his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Auburn University in 1997, Dr. Hart pursued his dental doctorate at University of Alabama, earning it in 2001. Continuing education is a vital part of how Dr. Hart stays on top of delivering your family the latest advances in dental care. His additional education includes the placement and restoration of dental implants, sedation, root canal therapy, and cosmetic restorations. He is also Invisalign® certified and uses iTero® digital scanning instead of goopy impressions.
A dedicated husband and father, Dr. Hart and his wife Allison have three beautiful daughters. Spending time together as a family is a priority and they enjoy going to the beach, watching movies, and traveling to Disney World. They are all active members of the Wiregrass Church in Dothan.
Geraldine was born in Bremerton, WA and grew up as a child of the U.S. Navy in Orlando, Florida.

She takes great enjoyment from using her strong organizational skills to help our family of patients with all their financial needs.

Lead Dental Assistant
As a child, Dianne always wanted to be in the medical field because she loves taking care of people. And one day, because of her warm, bright smile, she was discovered at a local grocery store by a team member. The rest, as they say, is history. Working with you to ensure your comfort and satisfaction is her top priority – and she always does it with a smile.
Dianne has two adult children – Christopher and Connor – and a dog named Cooper. Dianne and her husband Ken love being outside. If she’s not planting her garden or caring for it, you can find Dianne on 5-K walks, bike riding, and spending time with the people she loves.
Alaina grew up in Slocomb and lives with her husband Toby and their son Jonah. Toby and Alaina grew up next door to one another and were high school sweethearts before they married. Alaina loves people and after she finished dental assisting school, joined our team as a dental assistant. When she’s not assisting Dr. Hart, Alaina is helping out at the front desk – and is always looking for something cool to do in the office to help our patients or her teammates.
Outside of dentistry, Alaina loves animals, her family, and going camping and spoiling her sweet little boy. Her big boy, a 100-lb. German Sheppard named Maverick, rounds out her family.
