Dr. Faryl Hart has been a dentist for over 33 years. She was inspired to be a dentist while on a cross-country move from Garden Grove, California to Tampa, Florida. It was about in Texas that her Mom got a bad toothache. Imagine traveling with her dog, Topaz, and her mom in that horrible pain. Three more days had to pass until her mom was able to see a dentist in Tampa, Florida. Once her Mom returned from Dr. Cogsbill’s office she was out of pain. Wow! Dr. Hart wanted to be able to help others like he helped her mom.
Her undergraduate degree is from the University of South Florida with a B.S. in Clinical Chemistry. While in college she worked for a dentist, Dr. Gerald Kluft as a dental assistant. He suggested that she attend Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. She graduated in 1985. She continues her dental education at Las Vegas International. Neuromuscular dentistry is taught there. She is the only dentist in the Richmond area who is still actively training there. The State Board of Virginia requires 16 hours of continuing education per year, Dr. Hart usually has 80-90 hours of continuing education per year.
Member of IAPA- The International Association of Physiologic Aesthetics. You won’t find Dr. Hart on LVI Global’s website since she has not completed all of the 6 core classes. She recently completed Core 4 and will soon be taking Core 5.
Besides her husband, Dave, of over twenty years, she has two grown sons-Luke and Jake. They are now part-time empty nesters. Community service is important to Dr. Hart. She helps keep the Richmond area clean by participating in the James River Regional Cleanup. Her family has picked up trash and debris at Pony Pasture, the Pipeline and at the Rice Center in Charles City County for over 10 years. English ivy and other trees and plants have been removed from East End Cemetery’s graves by her family. Look for Dr. Hart courtside at the Siegel Center taking photos for the Virginia Commonwealth University’s
Women’s basketball team. Her photos can be found throughout the office. Go Rams!! Estate and yard sales are some of her sources for her rehabbing furniture hobby. It’s the thrill of the hunt that motivates her to get up early on Saturday mornings.
