Dr. Nikole O’Bryan started her career in dentistry working in an office where her mother was a dental assistant and her older sister was a front office administrator. She was fortunate to have many early mentors that recognized her talent and encouraged her to pursue higher education.
After attending the University of Washington and earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology, she was accepted into the dental medicine program at Boston University. While attending dental school, Dr. O’Bryan earned distinction in restorative dentistry and prosthodontics. She was awarded honors with the American College of Dentists and Omicron Kappa Epsilon and was a TA in the disciplines in which she excelled: the study of bite function and restorative treatments. She graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2005 and returned to Seattle to search for the ideal practice in which to put that experience to work helping patients achieve excellent oral health.
Dr. O’Bryan met and began working with Dr. John Hardwick in 2005, and in 2007 took over the care of his longtime family of patients, in the colorful practice he’d started on the Ave in 1976.
Dr. O’Bryan spends her free time in dental study clubs, continuing education, and volunteering her dental skills. She loves trying new recipes out for friends and family at her home on Vashon Island, her dog Iggy always at her side.
