Dr. Hamilton is originally from the Kalamazoo, Michigan area. He attended Michigan State University receiving his bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition. His Doctorate in Dental Surgery was completed at the University of Detroit Mercy and has now been practicing clinically for 11 years. Dr. Hamilton is an active member of several professional organizations including the American Dental Association (ADA), the Michigan Dental Association (MDA), the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), the Kalamazoo Valley District Dental Society (KVDDS), the American Academy of Implant dentistry (AAID), the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), the International Dental Implant Association (IDIA), the Global Dental Implant Academy (GDIA), the Kois Center in Seattle, Washington, the International Academy of Facial Aesthetics (IAFA) and has achieved fellowship status in the AGD, IDIA, the GDIA and the ICOI.

Other course work has been completed with the Pikos Institute in Florida, IV sedation certification with Dr. Ken Reed in Oregon and Foundational TMJ diagnosis at the Piper Institute in Florida. Dr. Hamilton is dedicated to life-long learning and has a passion for mentoring young dentists and teaching dentistry. As a firm believer in evidence-based practice, he follows gold standard research to guide clinical decisions. He maintains a high level of knowledge in screening of airway constriction/sleep disordered breathing in his private practice and believes that dentistry plays a critical role in one’s overall health and wellness. When asked what I do, the best way to describe it is that I am an orofacial expert that changes lives by using modern technology to create predictable, healthy, and beautiful outcomes that enable my patients to smile confidently. I am a MODERN dentist and this, to me, means truly comprehensive. It is a different kind of dentistry. I believe in wellness and the role dentistry plays in it. Eat Healthy, breathe healthy, sleep healthy, smile healthy…live healthy. I do not just place dental implants; implants are not THE product I provide. I create excellent outcomes for patients. People believe in me because I create confident smiles and treat failing dental situations. Doing so sometimes requires the placement of implants to achieve this. Outside of the office, Dr. Hamilton’s number one priority and joys are his family; he has two beautiful daughters, Layla (6 years old) and Bree (4 years old) with his wife Jolie. The little spare time left over is spent Steelhead and Salmon fishing, cycling and the occasional round of golf.
