Northern Counties Health Care has added a new doctor and a new dentist to their practices in Hardwick. Dr. Pamela Martin DMD is caring for patients at the Northern Counties Dental Center (NCDC) located at 151 North Main Street. Dr. Chloe Tartaglia MD is caring for patients at the Hardwick Area Health Center located at 4 Slapp Hill Road.
“Dr. Martin and Dr. Tartaglia have both jumped right in as new members of our team,” said Chris Towne, chief strategy officer for Northern Counties. “They are increasing access for dental and primary care in the Hardwick area, and patients will benefit greatly from their skill, experience, and compassionate care.”
Dr. Martin earned her Bachelor of Science degree at Florida State University in Tallahassee. She earned her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry at the University of Florida in Gainesville. While there, she was recognized with the L.D. Pankey Scholarship Award for Professional Excellence in Prosthodontics and Periodontology.
