The Hadgis family has enjoyed a longstanding connection to the St. Augustine area. Dr. Hadgis' great uncle was the first physician to practice in nearby Bunnell. This area has been the family’s “go to” vacation destination since Dr. Hadgis was a child growing up in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. As the son of a family dentist, it is not surprising that Dr. Hadgis ended up favoring a career of creating beautiful smiles.
Dr. Hadgis and his wife Anne welcomed their daughter Callie Anne in October 2020. The Hadgis family enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, exercising, going to the beach and pool and going for walks.
