Christy Hark, DDS, is a family practice dentist at Lifetime Dental Care, PLLC, in Woodbridge, Virginia. Dr. Hark was born in South Korea when she and her family moved to Alexandria, Virginia, at an early age.
Ever since she was young, she knew she had a passion for the art of dentistry. In her high school and college years, she attended dental assisting programs and took part-time jobs as a dental assistant, where she was able to grow her experiences working in dental offices and learning from remarkable doctors. She fulfilled that hope at Howard University College of dentistry and where she earned her degree in Doctor of Dental Surgery.
Dr. Hark has vast experience working with all age groups and people from all different walks of life. From pediatrics to geriatrics, she has served as a dentist in assisting living facilities, group homes, medically underserved populations, as well as corporate dental practices, but she has found her passion to be amongst the children and helping kids. Dr. Hark values self-confidence and feels that the best part of her job is to know that kids can grow more confident in themselves through a beautiful smile and a strong self-image.
Dr. Hark enjoys volunteering with organizations such as Missions of Mercy and Give Kids A Smile because she believes in giving back to the community and helping those who have a harder time helping themselves.
Dr. Hark knows she cannot change the world, but if only she could change the world of an individual, she would change somebody’s world.
During her free time, she likes to spend it with the ones she loves: her family, friends, and her cat named Twinkie. She is a member of Global Mission Church and is an active member of the worship band as a pianist and singer. Her hobbies include playing the piano, binge-watching Netflix, drawing, singing, and most of all, spending time with her husband.
