As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We aim to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care.” That’s why we focus on:
Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed on your overall health, medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
If you’re looking for an experienced and trusted dentist in Rocky Hill, Berlin, Cromwell, New Britain, Newington, Wethersfield or the surrounding communities, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve proudly been serving Rocky Hill patients for over two decades. Our aim is to actually see you less! Our mission is to empower our patients with the knowledge to never have to see us – aside from checkups and routine cleanings.
Prevention is always the best cure. The American Dental Association recommends seeing your dentist at least twice a year for a dental exam. Identifying existing or potential problems when they just start will keep you out of the dental chair longer and avoid costlier and potentially painful procedures in the future. We pride ourselves on having the most informed dental patients – that’s why we say brighter smiles and smarter patients.
Dr. Robert Hemphill received his Bachelor of Arts from Albion College in 1997. He furthered his education and completed a Masters in Health Administration at Grand Valley Sate University. He completed his Doctorate of Dental Medicine at Nova Southeastern University followed by a General Practice Residency at Yale New Haven Hospital.
We’ve been practicing family dentistry in Rocky Hill CT for over 20 years now. We’ve gotten to know so many great individuals and families over the years. Every town and city has a different culture with great things to offer, and we’ve fallen in love with our community. Our values align with our patient’s values and you can’t always get that. We cherish it, and it’s a huge part of what makes coming to the office every day so enjoyable for us.
We know that a lot people have had uncomfortable experiences in dental offices, or just simply have a fear of doctors. We understand, we’re just as vulnerable as our patients and always put ourselves in their shoes when they step into our office. One of our missions is to have our patients associate comfort and relaxation with their dental visits. Comfort starts when you walk in the door and are greeted by our friendly staff and continues until you walk out the door.
Our philosophy is good dentistry starts with education. We can take care of nearly any dental need our patients face, but at the end of the day our goal is to see you less. We don’t just do the work and say goodbye. You leave our office with new knowledge that will keep you out of our chair until your next checkup or cleaning. We want more patients, and more informed patients. We believe that is the best approach for serving our community.
West Hill Family Dental is making dental care affordable and accessible for families, individuals, and small businesses.
Dr.Robert Hemphill and his staff are so friendly.I was very nervous to get my treatment done,doctor made me understand and kept me calm.I always walk out happy, feeling I have seen the BEST doctor who took care of my dental treatment.Kinga the dental assistant is so kind and helpful,Kim such a lovely person always smiling and happy,Monica is superb too, she calls and double confirms the appointment so that I don’t forget. Thank you once again.
In the past I have had bad experiences with dentist and I have switch many times and I think I have finally found my forever home. Kim and Monica at the front desk are amazing they make sure that if you have any concerns, they will accommodate you in any way they can. They also socialize with you which makes visiting the dentist feel like visiting family. This is by far the best dentist I've ever been to and would recommend them to anyone.
Today was my first visit with West Hill Family dental. The staff was awesome! So warm and welcoming! I felt at home the moment I walked in the door. Melissa (hygienist) was awesome and very sweet. Dr. Hemphill was very personable. I am a nervous Nelly with the dentist but they really helped me feel comfortable.
West Hill Family Dental has been serving my entire family for 10 years. They have always been great and treat us like family. I will continue to use them because of the high level of care and comfortable atmosphere.
They’ve taken smart precautions for their reopening during the pandemic. They’re still as great as ever. I felt safe going and getting my teeth cleaned. :)
I was nervous going into the office with Covid. There was a new hygienist. She immediately made me feel comfortable and I had one of the best cleanings.
Staff extremely friendly and funny. Office sends texts/email alerts before appointments.
Overall, always a positive experience when I stop in. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new Dentist.
