Dr. Hutchens attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, School of Dentistry and was then awarded positions in the Graduate Periodontology Program and with the Department of Oral Biology, at The Medical College of Georgia (now Augusta University). There he has completed a Master’s Degree in Oral Biology and will graduate with a Certificate in Clinical Periodontics that includes hospital based training in intravenous conscious sedation.
Dr. Hutchens is licensed in both North and South Carolina. His areas of expertise include sedation dentistry, dental implants, gum grafting, bone grafting, esthetic/cosmetic dentistry, and the treatment of periodontal disease. He has won awards for his research, been published in journals and textbooks, and will continue to both lecture and contribute to education while in private practice.
Outside of the office, Dr. Hutchens, his wife, and their two boys enjoy being outside whether it be in the sun, sand, or water, especially with their Golden Retriever named Finn. They all are excited to return home to North Carolina and to begin to enjoy Wilmington just in time for the summer fun.
