'Colorado's dentist' to open facility in Alamosa


ALAMOSA — Dr. James “Jim” Harding of Harding Dental Group ceremoniously broke ground on a state-of-the-art, 2,000 square foot advanced dental facility located at 688 Del Sol, Alamosa (northwest corner of the Social Security Administration Building lot) on August 14.

The building is specifically design-built according to Dr. Harding and his patients’ needs by Alcon Construction, Inc. The construction has 100 percent local participation, with all vendors and contractors from the San Luis Valley.

Set to open its doors in January 2018, the dental center is designed to complement existing buildings in the area and features a vaulted ceiling, all digital patient rooms and a beautiful lobby.

Dr. Harding said, “I love the San Luis Valley and wanted to do our part to invest in the wonderful people that live here and the promising future of this region. We’re most proud of the fact that now patients will have access to the latest in implant dentistry, utilizing an advanced 3D scanner not previously available without leaving the SLV.”

Dr. Harding serves as the official dentist to the U.S. Ski Team and is often referred to as “Colorado’s dentist.” He is trained in advanced dentistry and has completed post-graduate courses from the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, where he specialized in comprehensive, implant, TMJ/TMD, orthodontic, denture and cosmetic dentistry.

Harding Dental Group currently has offices in Alamosa and South Fork.
