I have great passion to learn and grow so I can be the best dentist for all our patients. My hope is that each visit is pleasant, comfortable, and possibly even fun for everyone. My other passion is taking care of my two little kids who keep me busy when I am not at Brookside Dental Care.
I was born and raised in the Lehigh Valley and graduated from the Christian Lighthouse Academy in 2008. In 2011, I earned my certificate in dental assisting from the Lehigh Valley School of Dental Assisting. I enrolled at Harcum College in 2016 to earn my license as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA). Being a dental assistant allows me to have so many rewarding moments, but by far my favorite aspect of dentistry is being apart of giving someone back their smile.
I joined Brookside Dental Care in 2015, and am blessed to work with such amazing and talented group of individuals.
I have two beautiful daughters that keep me very busy. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as being outdoors.
I was born and raised in the Berks County, and I am a graduate of Salem Christian School.
I received my dental assistant degree at Berks Career and Technology Center, and later took the state board exam to become a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA). I began working in the dental field as a dental assistant in 2010 and found that I loved it so much that I decided to go back to school to continue my education and become an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA). I attended Harcum College in 2015. With this new degree I now have the opportunity to do additional duties including placing fillings.
I joined the Brookside Dental team July of 2016, and I absolutely love working and being part of the team here. One of my favorite parts of my job is being able to work with truly amazing and wonderful people who share the desire to take great care of their patients. I love how rewarding my job is. I am able to connect with my patients and enjoy making their time with us a pleasant experience.
On my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our beautiful daughter. We love being outdoors and playing with our dog max.
I grew up in the Lehigh Valley and graduated from Emmaus High School. I married my husband in 1990 and we have raised two beautiful kids.
After attending Northampton Community College, I received a degree in Dental Hygiene and have been working for Brookside Dental Care since 2014. It has been a pleasure working with an incredibly caring team who makes the patients’ needs a top priority. I also love building relationships with our patients and helping them to achieve a healthy smile.
I earned my dental hygiene degree in 2010 from Northampton Community College.
I am happily married to my wonderful husband George. When I am not at work, I enjoy bible volunteer work, spending time with friends and family, decorating and cooking.
My favorite part about my job is helping my patients to improve their dental hygiene and developing a lasting relationship with them. I feel truly blessed to work with such an amazing friendly and caring team of Doctors and staff at Brookside Dental Care.
After attending Kutztown University for my college education, I began a career in the weight loss industry. I managed a team for almost 8 years until the time that the company I worked for closed. In 2008 I sought out a field in which I could continue to help patients and utilize my managerial skills to help an office grow. I was fortunate enough to find Dr. Hadian was in need of a front desk individual. It was one of the best choices I’ve ever made.
I have been fortunate as well in my personal life. I have been in a relationship my husband since 1996, and we have two beautiful little girls, and three dogs to keep us busy.
I was born and raised in Allentown and am a graduate of Dieruff High School. I excelled at team sports my favorite of which was cheerleading and track and field. In 1999 I married my husband Tom and we have been happily married ever since. In our spare time we enjoy spending time with our dog Ozzy. Personally I enjoy shopping, relaxing and going to Penn State football games.
I have worked in dentistry since 2004 and joined Dr. Hadian in 2012. I really enjoy working for Dr. Hadian, and I find it so rewarding being part of such a great team that always puts the cares and needs of our patients first. My position allows me to meet with our patients and help them understand the importance of a healthy smile.
I was born and raised in the Lehigh Valley where I am still living with my husband Zack, and our dog Jase. I graduated from Catasauqua High School in 2011 and then attended the Lehigh Valley School of Dental Assiting in 2012. I am a recent graduate from Harcum College’s Expanded Function Dental Assisting Program.
I joined Dr. Hadian’s practice in 2012 and it has been such a great pleasure to help provide such great dental care to the community.
I received my hygiene degree in 2001 from Northampton Community College. In 2008 I also received my Public Health Dental Practioner license. This license allows me to provide hygiene services in a public setting to those in the community that are under served. One day a week I go to elementary schools to apply sealants and education to children whom may not see a dentist.
I am an active member of my church in and enjoy partaking in our dance ministries and praise team. I married to my high school sweetheart and am a mother to four wonderful children.
My mission in life is to be a positive influence to my family and those that come in contact with me.
I’m one of the dental hygienists in the office. I’ve been part of the Brookside Dental Care team since 2007. I am also licensed in local anesthesia, and I was one of the first to be licensed when it became available in Pennsylvania. I take pride in caring for my patients, many of which have become like a part of my own family. I have two beautiful daughters and enjoy taking part in various 5 and 10K races around the area. I am a native of beautiful Northern Pennsylvania and look forward to spending many more years with all of the wonderful staff and patients here at Brookside Dental Care.
My name is Leah Hadian. I have been a Dental Assistant for since 1991. I trained in Newnan Georgia, which is where I’m from. I worked there for 9 years, and I’ve worked for Dr. Hadian ever since. I did take 6 and 1/2 years off to be with our daughter Brooke. I have two wonderful step sons named Naveed and Grant.
I enjoy dentistry. I find it to be constantly changing to make dental care more comfortable and efficient for our patients. Here at Brookside Dental Care we have a great team that works well together due to the respect we have for one another. We are one big happy family. This is true with our patients as well. We always try to create an inviting atmosphere. That along with our state of the art facility and newest technology makes me feel that this is what sets us apart from other practices. I’m very proud to be a part of this wonderful practice.
