Get to know Dr. Hodge:
I became a dentist because I loved math and science in undergrad. I thought I wanted to go into prosthetics. After working for a dentist and orthodontist, I realized I could do a miniature version of prosthetics with teeth! I love art and working with my hands and dentistry is a perfect combination of my skill set. I love to laugh and consider my patients my family. Going to the dentist can and should be FUN! My patients trust me to give them the best care and I provide that at every appointment.

Giving someone a confident, healthy smile is why I enjoy my job. I love Church Health’s mission to care for our neighbors and I truly believe a smile can transform someone’s life.
