Dr. Dale E. Hunt graduated from West Virginia University’s School of Dentistry in 1978. Immediately after graduating, he and his wife moved to Greenville and began practicing dentistry, where he became one of the top dentists in the state. He founded Wood Creek Dental in 1979, and since then, the practice has expanded to encompass his three children, his niece, and two other dentists.
Dr. Hunt is an avid pursuer of continuing dental education, particularly for dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, and sedation dentistry. He’s continuously implementing the best that dentistry has to offer. He’s a Gold Member of the Doctors for Oral Conscious Sedation and has provided sedation dentistry to patients who struggle with dental anxiety since 1985. He’s earned certifications for these areas of dentistry:
- Dental Implant Training: Nobel Biocare USA, Inc., Bicon Dental Implants, OCO Biomedical, and Dental XP—Premiere Level
- CEREC Training: Single Visit Crown Design and Fabrication
- Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support Certified
He has also been in the lead of implementing technology and products that truly benefit the patients. He abandoned the old mercury fillings decades ago and uses the white natural fillings, thus maintaining focus on cosmetics and health.
