Being a dentist, working with my hands every day, and improving oral health is my dream job and a goal I have been working toward for many years. My grandfather practiced family medicine in Wayne county for nearly 60 years and my father is an emergency room physician, so I grew up around health care and had the privilege of watching them build relationships with patients and take care of them. I decided I wanted to do the same thing in my own way through dentistry.
My goals are to build relationships with my patients and to provide them with dental services that help them become healthier and happier in the process. My favorite parts of dentistry are the abilities to relieve a patient’s dental pain, improve their ability to chew properly, and improve their confidence by restoring their smile.
I am so excited to be a part of the Hinnant family dentistry team. When you visit HFD, not only are you visiting an office with the latest and greatest technology and the ability to provide various treatment options based on your dental needs, you are also taken care of by a team with a patient centered focus. Every team member is dedicated to providing the best possible care to each person who walks through the doors.

It’s important to me to stay up to date through continuing education on the latest technology and research in dentistry. In particular, I enjoy expanding my knowledge in the fields of minimally invasive adhesive dentistry and Invisalign clear aligners.

Beyond the Practice
I grew up right here in Goldsboro, North Carolina, and I am so happy to bring my dental skills back to my hometown. I’ve been happily married to my husband Andrew since 2019. We attend The First Church and love all the community outreach that is done there. Outside of work, you can find me spending time with family, working on DIY projects, exercising, or reading a good book.
