From 2013-2014, Dr. Hammes completed a one-year Fellowship in Implant Dentistry at the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in Alton, Illinois. He is dedicated to excellent patient care in a comfortable environment, oral health. He stays up to date in the advances in dentistry through continuing education.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I have been practicing dentistry for over 9 years and have gained a wide range of clinical experience. I have extensive experience in both general and implant dentistry gained from private practice, my implant fellowship, and the Navy. We have a great staff and modern office where we will take outstanding care of your oral health needs. We have natural light in all our dental operatories, a massage feature in the dental chairs, and free on-site parking.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I focus on General Dentistry, Implant Dentistry, and Invisalign treatment.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am proud of our dedicated staff along with our modern facilities here at Washington Dental Care.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating all cases but especially enjoy the ability improve someone's confidence in their smile. I particularly like cases that utilize implants and/or Invisalign to improve a patient's function and esthetics.

    Dr. Hammes and his staff were really accomodating and courteous to my needs and questions! It felt great knowing that Dr. Hammes was willing to schedule a second follow-up with me so that I could get full details about a future purchase so I didn't feel rushed. Very clean office.

    Both my husband and I came in for a check up and cleaning on the same day. Every person we encountered was professional and thorough in finding out all dental history, any issues and addressing them. We chose Dr. Hammes because we are also both veterans we will be back.

  • Dr. Hammes and staff were extremely informative and thorough.
    Reviewed on April 12th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    I had a full set of x-rays taken of all my teeth, including my bite and the roots of my teeth. Dr. Hammes walked me through the x-rays and described what he was looking for in them and what constituted healthy teeth. He discussed any questions I had or issues I'd been having so he could determine what was going on. He then performed a physical examination of my teeth and walked me through the results and my treatment plan. Afterwards, he did a thorough cleaning and suggested multiple products that would help with my sensitivity. From the time I entered the office until my check out, I was taken care of right away and made sure all my questions were addressed. This was by far the best experience I've had at the dentist.

    Reviewed on December 6th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    From the time of my initial phone call, I was impressed with the office. The office, service and staff were all very welcoming, friendly, professional and knowledgeable (though they all laughed at how I broke my tooth). They assisted me thru every step of my emergency appointment, directions to the office, excused my late arrival and gave me several options in treatment with excellent attention to insurance coverage and benefit detail. They even assisted me the very next day with changing the date of my follow up appointment. Location was also convenient. Definitely will be my primary dental home.
