The Office

We’re devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative,
state-of-the-art procedures that result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!


Education & Prevention

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:

  • Checking the overall health of your teeth and gums
  • Performing oral cancer exams
  • Taking x-rays on a periodic basis
  • Routine Cleanings
  • Flossing
  • Sealants to help prevent decay

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.

The entire staff at West Hill Family Dental is extremely friendly and personable. The hygienists make you feel comfortable and the dentists are thorough yet efficient.

Marco A.

I am a very anxious person who was petrified to go to the dentist but had too because I had pain. The staff was amazing and Dr. Hemphill is obviously extremely skilled and his people skills are second to none. I had a root canal where I felt no pain and I am typing this just 4 hours after my procedure and I feel relief and no pain at all. WOW- if anyone is hesitant as a first time patient don't be. You are welcomed as a part of the family practice and I have no anxiety about my next visit. I have a lot of work to be done but know now there is no better place to go than West Hill. I am so glad I found them.

Steve B.

I am from out of town visiting family in Connecticut this weekend and I had a terrible toothache and didn't know where to turn. Obviously my family dentist is a few hundred miles away and It was a Saturday morning. I asked my uncle who I should call for help. They told me their dentist, Dr. Hemphill, has an emergency number I should try....so I did. Dr. Hemphill was kind enough to drive in and assess the situation. I am out of pain and enjoying the rest of my weekend with my family. Thank you Dr. Hemphill. I can't thank you enough for all your time and help with this tooth situation.

Parag D.

Dr Hemphill is simply the best! He and his staff are the nicest, kindest, most sincere people I have come across in a long time. He really stepped up to the plate when I had an emergency situation. He came in and opened his doors to me on his day off and not only saved me from a lot of pain and misery but he also saved my tooth!

Scott K.

Dr. Hemphill, or as I like to call him "Dr. H", makes going to the dentist stress free and actually a FUN and comfortable experience. He's a fantastic doctor and a great guy who really cares about his patients. The office is clean and the staff is friendly. They take my insurance and make everything totally affordable. I'm so glad I found Dr. Hemphill!

Shannon R.

Dr.Hemphill and the staff at the West Hill Family Dental showed great caring and understanding during a year long multiple visits required by my difficult dental situation. Dr. Hemphill worked with me to find the best possible plan forward. Changing of the multiple old crowns involved restoring of the decay damaged teeth, performing root canals and building up of the teeth core. With the help of a friendly dental assistant Kinga teeth were repaired and old crowns replaced by the new ones. Vicky always tried to find the best financial plan for the dental services and accommodate my busy schedule when making future appointments. Melissa and Tina did a great job on teeth cleaning. The West Hill Family Dental is a dental office where patients will find professional service while being treated with understanding and as a part of a family.

Bojana N.

Great service, flexible appointments, friendly staff and we are happy so far.

Ram P.

Really great dentist. Been a patient of his since he went into private practice and liked him so much that when he moved his office from Glastonbury to Rocky Hill, my whole family followed him. Not only is he an excellent dentist, the staff is great and appointments are on time. I can't think of enough nice things to say about him.

Mike R.

Great dentist for me and my children!
