I grew up at the office and watched my father, Dr. Willard Hinnant, care for his patients. It was incredible to see how he was able to improve a person’s life, and I admired the connections he made with each patient. For more than 20 years, I’ve carried on my father’s legacy: treating each patient with compassion and respect, and helping them achieve their healthiest smiles.
My patients feel like family to me, and I care about each person’s well-being. Not only do I want everyone to achieve a healthy, becoming smile, but I want them to have overall wellness and to enjoy life.
I particularly enjoy restorative and aesthetic work. It’s a great feeling to restore a person’s oral health, to allow them to chew properly and enjoy eating the foods they like again, and to give them a smile they love in the process.
My fellow doctors and our team members are exceptional people. They are caring, compassionate, and completely dedicated to our patients. I couldn’t ask for a friendlier, wittier, more giving group of people!
As part of our commitment to caring for our community, in 2016 our team created Hinnant’s Helping Hands. This organization goes beyond our office and provides support for food drives, baby item drives, and anything we can do to show support for members of Wayne County.

Dentistry is ever-changing. It is important for me to educate myself continually about the latest technology, newest research, and advances in techniques. Through continuing education, I ensure that I provide each patient with the highest-quality, most appropriate treatment for their needs.
Each year I complete a range of postgraduate courses. I’ve studied implant and sedation dentistry, Invisalign® clear aligners and orthodontics, and CEREC® same-day restorations.

Beyond the Practice
I grew up here in Goldsboro. My wife Garianne and I married in 2015. Together we have four amazing children: Braden, Logan, Brexton, and Keigan. Being with family is my priority when I’m not at work. I try and make time for other passions, including hunting, fishing, and golfing.
