Expertise, Fewer Visits & Artistic Results
Dr. Hill’s Advanced Training and Expertise
Completing all of the courses in the prestigious and rigorous Dr. Dick Barnes Group Continuum for reconstructive, rehabilitation and cosmetic dentistry, has armed Dr. Hill with advanced training and expertise that a very small percentage of general dentists can match.
For example, consider that implant placement — just one of the many advanced procedures that Dr. Hill is qualified to perform (see below) — can be done by only about 15% of all general dentists.

As Few Visits as Possible
We understand that your time is precious and you need all your dental work expertly done in as few visits as possible. We’ve perfected a truly unique system that makes this a reality.
We have ultra-light, safe sedation options that totally relax you for hours, which can give Dr. Hill the time to finish your work in one sitting. More extensive work may require extra visits, but we’ll keep them to a minimum.
Early-Morning and Lunch Appointments
If it’s better for you to schedule us before your workday or during your lunch, no problem. We normally start visits at 7 AM, but we’ll come in earlier if you need us to.
Reserved Long-Visit Days
Unlike most dentists, we reserve some days for fewer patients and longer appointments (i.e., busy people getting it all done at once, veneers), so if your teeth need a lot of work, we can get it all done quickly, in less visits. Of course, we reserve other days for shorter visits as well (i.e., checkups and fillings).
Fast, Easy Communication
You can reach us by phone (even after hours), text, email, and Facebook. Also, if you’d like, we can remind you about appointments with texts and emails. We’ll adapt to what works for you.
Private Sessions and Private Rooms
If your teeth need extensive work, Dr. Hill often makes you his only patient when you come in, ensuring undivided, one-on-one attention from him. Even our usual routine has very little overlap between patients. And each of our treatment rooms is a private, separate room for your comfort.
By contrast, most dentists often juggle several patients at the same time, creating a lot of patient overlap, sessions with more interruptions, and far less focused attention from the dentist.
A More Convenient Location
Especially accessible to the Old Mill and Union Park business centers, our office is right off I-215, so you can get here quickly from wherever you work or live.
As you can tell from his photographs, Dr. Hill possesses an eye for artistry and beauty. More importantly for you perhaps, his dental work shows that he has artistic hands as well.
He has advanced training and experience
An 11-year veteran of dentistry, Dr. Hill has undergone advanced training that most dentists have not. His great accomplishment is completing all of the courses offered in the prestigious and rigorous Dr. Dick Barnes Group Continuum, covering reconstructive, rehabilitative, and fine cosmetic dentistry.
Requiring three years to complete, and over 15 two-day sessions, these courses not only feature training from some of the world’s top dental instructors, they also provide hands-on experience with live patients.
He listens and diagnoses with you
Dr. Hill truly listens to everything you have to say about your teeth. And he’s a big believer in co-diagnosis, the process of creating the best course of action with you, as opposed to him simply telling you what he thinks. .
He knows that your appearance matters
How good your teeth look is something that matters, not because you’re vain, but because you’re in the public eye. If you have had a hodgepodge of dental work over the years and don’t love your appearance, Dr. Hill knows how to help transform it into an attractive, uniform, healthy look. This is one of his favorite aspects of dentistry.
He takes time for the finishing touches
We pad your appointments with a little extra time, so that Dr. Hill can make the finishing, artistic touches on your teeth that some dentists are in too much of a hurry to do. He makes sure everything is perfect and feels right to you.
He’s your aesthetic consultant
Not sure whether to enhance what you have, get a whole new look, or keep things exactly as they are? Dr. Hill has the experience and judgment to give you the right recommendation.
