From the sunrise years to the sunset years, Dr. Hamlin believes all generations deserve a comprehensive and exceptional dental experience with beautiful artistry, modern technology, and clinically excellent care.
Rather than simply treating individual teeth, Dr. Hamlin evaluates and considers the function and appearance of the entire oral health system. The end goal is always a beautiful, healthy, and long-lasting smile.
As a lifelong learner dedicated to delivering the best care available, Dr. Hamlin pursues advanced thinking, training, technologies, and treatments to stay on the leading edge of modern science-based dental advancements.

If you are interested in straightening your teeth but don't necessarily want to wear bulky, noticeable metal braces, Invisalign may be a great choice for you! Invisalign uses comfortable clear aligners to gently but quickly move each tooth into a straighter position. Invisalign can not only provide patients with straighter, more symmetrical smiles, but also correct bites and make it easier to eat and speak. Patients who are interested in Invisalign should schedule a consultation with Dr. Hamlin to learn more and begin their orthodontic journey.
