Meet the Doctor

Dr. Harry H. Heard III DDS

Born the eldest of six children, Dr. Harry H. Heard III’s father served in the Immigration and Naturalization Service and his mother is a Registered Nurse. Therefore, he had the opportunity to see many parts of the country of the United States which has lead him to many interests including hunting, fishing, traveling, and riding his motorcycle.

Upon graduating high school in a small upstate New York town Dr. Heard entered the University of South Carolina with a pre-dental biology major. After graduating from USC, he was accepted into the Medical College of Virginia’s School of Dentistry in 1974 and graduated in 1978.

Shortly after graduation, Dr. Heard joined the U.S. Army as a Captain in the Army Dental Corps, stationed at Ft. Eustis, Virginia. Dr. Heard had the opportunity to practice all aspects of dentistry with specialists in Periodontics, Endodontics, Oral Surgery, Crown and Bridge, and Dentures as his mentors. After four years of service, in 1982 Dr. Heard received the Army Commendation Medal. After his time in the Army, Dr. Heard opened a private dental practice in Newport News, Virginia where he met Valerie. They married in 1990 and Dr. Heard continued to practice there until 1996.

However, small town life had always appealed to Dr. Heard. When the opportunity to purchase a dental practice in Front Royal, Virginia became available, Dr. Heard and his wife, Valerie, moved to Front Royal. Valerie is a Special Education Teacher with a Masters in Special Education, and teaches children with autism. She teaches in Warren County and their son, Chandler, attends high school in Warren County. The Heards live in Bentonville, Virginia.

Dr. Heard’s practice in Front Royal was very successful and grew rapidly. While practicing there, Dr. Heard was voted Best Dentist in Warren County by the readers of the Northern Virginia Daily. He was also voted on of the top two dentists in the Shenandoah Valley by the readers of Virginia Living Magazine.

When the opportunity to practice in Luray arose, Dr. Heard acquired the office and practice of Dr. Werner Wiedemann. Dr. Heard is a member of the Page County Chamber of Commerce and Luray Rotary, and is excited about practicing in Luray. He offers a wide range of services including; Dentistry for Children, Examinations, Cleanings (by Registered Dental Hygienists), Non-Surgical Gum Treatment, Crowns and Bridges, Extractions, Dentures, Partials, Whitening, and Cosmetic Dentistry.
