He went on to serve three years in Yokosuka, Japan as a general dentist, during which he deployed onboard the USS Tortuga in support of naval operations in the Pacific. Dr. Harkrider’s interest in root canals led him to the endodontic program at the Naval Postgraduate Dental School in Bethesda, MD. While there, he received his Certificate in Endodontics and a Masters of Science degree in Oral Biology. Upon completion, Dr. Harkrider was stationed at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, South Carolina where he practiced endodontics.
