About Your Dentist

Erica Hunt, DMD

"I love dentistry because working with a team to give someone their smile back is extremely rewarding. I have watched self-confidence grow right before my eyes. The best part is later - to hear the impact that dentistry has made on someone's life and well-being; from developing social relationships to finding jobs and careers. I love being a dentist!"

My goal is to be kind and gentle with all my patients. I want people to feel that I have their best interest at heart.
