Advanced + Family Dentistry - October 2018



October 2018



I n my ten years of practice, I have certainly seen the benefits of new and “cutting-edge” materials, methods, medicines, and technologies as they significantly improved patient care. I must admit I am extremely excited about all the advancements in dentistry and love new gadgets and gizmos. I have also learned one of the most important determinants of health is not always new technology or new pills. Instead, continuity of care continues to be one of the most important aspects in all of health care. This past spring, I began having conversations with Dr. Hatcher about this very topic. After 35 years, Dr. Hatcher and Debbie will begin planning a transition out of clinical care of patients. Having had the privilege of treating so many patients for many years, Dr. Hatcher and I both wanted to ensure the same continuity of care could be maintained. I am extremely grateful to be able to offer care to all you, and for the help and guidance from Dr. Hatcher. After graduating from the Medical University of South Carolina, I began practicing in North Carolina. During this time, I discovered my passion for helping patients with missing or broken teeth or smiles they were embarrassed of. Being able to use advancements in dentistry like dental implants, CAD/CAM technology, 3D imaging, and sedation dentistry, we can often completely restore patients

smiles (and confidence!) in 1–2 appointments. The last few weeks, we have been busy adding the computers and equipment needed to do this right in here in Dacula! I am extremely excited about how this can benefit all patients with more predictable, cost-efficient treatment with less discomfort and appointments!

Outside of the office, my wife, Margaret, and I have called Gwinnett county home since 2011. In that time, we have felt so fortunate to see both our patient family as well as household grow — we have four children, Eloise, 8, Teddy, 6, Finn, 3, and Georgia, 1. Family has always been very important to me, and as a patient I can promise we will always treat you as such and continue to provide the same high level of care as Dr. Hatcher. I am very excited to meet you all — the office location, hours, and phone number are the same as always, now just with a few new added faces (and some gizmos!).
