Meet Dr. Kelly Cundy Hart, DMD, a proud St. Mark’s class of 2003 graduate and one of our fantastic Community Partners through her practice – Hart to Hart Dental! We recently had the opportunity to get to know her more and how her time at St. Mark’s shaped her future.
How did St. Mark’s prepare you for your future? What does life after St. Mark’s look like. Where did you go to school after St. Mark’s? What do you do now?
Life after St. Mark’s has been a wild ride. I went on to Cardinal Gibbons for high school where I was on the State Championship volleyball team. Go Redskins!! After Gibbons, I received my bachelor’s of science from Florida State University, but of course my schooling didn’t stop there. I moved back to Fort Lauderdale to attend Dental School at Nova Southeastern University and continued on to complete my Pediatric Dental residency. Yesterday I was thrilled to find out that after all these years of schooling, I have finally completed my journey to becoming a board certified pediatric dentistry! This past June, my husband, Trevor and I opened our own family dental practice, Hart to Hart Dental, in Oakland Park just north of St. Marks on Dixie Highway. We are also expecting our first child, a baby boy, any day now!
What is one of your favorite memories from your time at St. Mark’s?
One of my favorite memories from St. Mark’s was the Sock Hop! My mom and I dressed up in our poodle skirts and danced the night away.
What do you miss most about St. Mark’s?
I miss seeing my friends and classmates everyday. A lot of us had been together from Kindergarten through 8th grade, so you become family. I am fortunate to still be best friends with Emily Langsenkamp who I met in Kindergarten!
What’s the best advice you can give our current St. Mark’s students?
Never stop learning! You have some of the best teachers at St. Mark’s who want to help you learn and grow. Ask them questions and let them challenge you.
Dr. Kelly Cundy Hart’s practice is a full-service dental practice in the heart (or should we say Hart) of Fort Lauderdale, FL just a few minutes away from St. Mark’s!
