Dentist – Prestonsburg, KY
A Word from Dr. Jay Alex Hartgrove
Dr. Jay Alex Hartgrove is originally from Stephens Branch right outside of Martin, KY. He became interested in dentistry in high school, and his passion was solidified early in college after an extended shadowing experience with a local dentist. Dr. Hartgrove attended the University of Kentucky for his undergraduate education. While there, he was involved with new student orientation, beginning as an orientation leader and was then promoted to a supervisory position. He was also involved in leadership at Christian Student Fellowship on campus, doing anything from building maintenance to leading group discussions. He completed his undergraduate studies in 2015, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Biology.
Dr. Hartgrove then attended the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry and graduated with his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2019. He was elected four consecutive years by his colleagues as Technology Advisor and Assistant and was a member of the American Student Dentist Association.
In his spare time, Dr. Hartgrove enjoys spending time with friends and family. He is also an animal lover and jokes about he and his wife having a small zoo. On sunny days, he can often be found fishing by the lake. However, he also enjoys time inside by playing music on the guitar, drawing, or playing videogames with friends online. Dr. Hartgrove is excited to join Dr. Griffith and the team at Brookside Dental Care to serve those within his home community.
