I am so pleased to join Dr. Hinnant, Dr. Brantly, and the rest of the team here at Hinnant Family Dentistry. I have worked with many other dental professionals over the years, but never have I worked with more skilled, knowledgeable, and caring group of people. They are truly dedicated to doing the best we can for each of our patients.
Relationship building is the core of my philosophy of dental practice. I deeply appreciate the trust my patients place in me and I strive daily to actively listen and work together to alleviate concerns and to achieve the optimum in dental health. A beautiful, healthy smile is a mutual reward.
Education and Continuing Education
I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan in 1988 and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 1993 where I graduated with honors in the top of my class.
I participate in many continuing education seminars each year including well-regarded Hinman dental meeting where I attend lectures from many of the leading clinicians in dentistry. I choose to participate in continuing education because it is important to me that my patients receive the most comprehensive, competent and up to date care I can give.
After all these years that hasn’t changed. The blend of art and science required is a challenge that never gets old.
Outside the Office
I grew up in the small town of Allegan Michigan. I practiced in Grand Rapids, Michigan from 1993 until 2010 when I sold my practice and moved to Wilson to be closer to family. My wife of 25 years Laura and I have two sons, Daniel who is 22 and Eric who is 19. We also have a cat named Ellie.
When not working you can find me golfing. I am a “do it yourselfer” mechanic and I always have some sort of home improvement project in the works.
My family is a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Wilson where I currently serve as a Deacon. My wife and I are also supporters of the Arts Counsel of Wilson.
