Why He Was Nominated

Dr. Hartman is known for his intellect and drive, and his recently completed 5,400-square-foot facility in Reading exemplifies both qualities, with state-of-the-art decor and technology throughout. Next up? Breaking ground in Bethlehem to build an even bigger office.

Biggest Challenge

Time management. Running two successful practices focused on customer service and good patient experiences necessitates an artful balancing act.

Exciting New Trend

The use of temporary anchorage devices to treat cases that in the past could be addressed only with orthodontic surgery. “TAD’s are revolutionizing our profession and opening many doors for us as practitioners,” Dr. Hartman says.

Something People Don't Know

Dr. Hartman’s friends consider him an overachiever — so when they found out he was going to become a father, no one was the least bit surprised that he and his girlfriend were expecting twins.
