Doctor of Dental Medicine
Dr. Leardi is the oldest of nine children. He grew up in Springfield, PA (Delaware County). He graduated from Cardinal O’Hara High School and went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree from Villanova University in 1989. Dr. Leardi graduated from Temple University School of Dentistry with a Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD) in 1994. Upon graduating from Temple, Dr. Leardi began treating patients in a large dental practice in Media, PA.
After practicing for a few years, an opportunity presented itself in Kennett Square, PA. On December 1st, 1998 the doors of his family dental practice opened. He started as a modest office with zero patients, two dental chairs and a sterilization area. Because of his dedication to providing exceptional service, his practice quickly grew. As his practice continued to grow he began adding more dental chairs and hiring more employees that share his patient-centric goals of providing the finest dental care.
It is hard to believe, but on December 1st, 2018, our practice turned 20! Time flies when you are having fun and doing things that you enjoy. Dr. Leardi and his entire staff share his goals and go the extra mile to help his patients with their oral health and dental esthetic desires.
