Phylicia Combest, DDS

 

Dr. Phylicia Combest is from a small town on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. She graduated from Gautier High School with honors and was one of the top ten students in her class.  Afterwards, she attended Mississippi State University where she obtained an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.

Dr. Combest’s initial career choice was in forensic science, however in her fourth year of college she decided to change to a healthcare profession and chose dentistry. This choice stemmed from her positive experiences at the dentist and orthodontist growing up. She went on to complete her dental school training at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis,TN. She then furthered her education by completing a general practice residency at Saint Elizabeths Hospital (public psychiatric hospital) in Washington, DC.  During her time there, she gained advance training in complex and comprehensive dental cases with individuals suffering from mental illness. Lastly, Dr. Combest went on to specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Howard University in Washington, DC.

 

Dr. Combest is a board certified pediatric dentist with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, College of Diplomates, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and Houston Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

 

In the past Dr. Combest has volunteered with Big Brother Big Sister, Special Olympics in Memphis, TN, and the youth ministry at her church. She enjoys working with children and youth, so she incorporated that into her career by focusing primarily on the oral health of the pediatric and teenage population.

 

In her free time, you can find Dr. Combest spending time with her family and friends. She enjoys exercising, shopping, going to tennis matches, concerts, and traveling the world. Her favorite childhood movie is the Goonies.

Jamie Hardy, DDS

 

Dr. Hardy is the outgoing middle daughter of her two loving parents, Drs. James and Felecia Hardy.  She grew up in Raleigh, NC with her two sisters and grandmother, who played an integral role of shaping who she is today.  Dr. Hardy began her higher education career at Hampton University in Hampton, VA where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology.  Upon graduation she attended Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry in Nashville, TN.  After dental school,

Dr. Hardy practiced in Charlotte, NC where she served children for 1 year.  She discovered her love for treating children and was inspired to further her training in the specialty of pediatric dentistry.  During her 2-year specialty training at Bronx Lebanon Hospital, Dr. Hardy was appointed Chief Resident by her attendings and received the award for Outstanding Leadership in Dental Outreach for her additional work in the Bronx, NY community.  Dr. Hardy furthered her knowledge by completing her Board Certification to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

 

Her passion to continue to serve children in under-served communities nationally is reflective in her mission trips to other countries such as Haiti and Guatemala where she treated children in rural areas that had limited access to oral health care.

As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Hardy’s personal mission is to care for each of her patient’s unique needs while inspiring them to have fun and enjoy their oral health care.  Encouraging children and youth to not only value their oral health but fearlessly pursue their dreams is something Dr. Hardy hopes is the lasting impression she has on all her patients.

 

During her free time, Dr. Hardy enjoys reading mysteries with her book club and watching suspenseful movies with her two sisters.  She also enjoys exploring new parks in the city with her dog Fefe while listening to some of her favorite music or audio books.  Volunteering and giving back to her community has always been a priority for her.  She continues to volunteer with her church’s kids and youth ministry and has joined community organizations including the Houston Area Urban League of Young Professionals.
