Meet John Hoggard

Dr. John Hoggard is a proud native of North Carolina and grew up in Greenville, NC. He attended Arendell Parrott Academy and then went to Rhodes College in Memphis, TN where he obtained a B.S. in Biology and played football. After pursuing a Master’s degree, he graduated from East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine where he received an Endodontic Achievement Award.  Dr. Hoggard has spent the last 5 years in private practice in Greenville gaining extensive experience in cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, endodontics, oral surgery, prosthodontics, and complex restorative dentistry cases.

Dr. Hoggard is thrilled to be moving to Wilmington to be closer to his family and closer to the beach. He is married to Caroline Hoggard, his dental school sweetheart, and they are expecting their first child in May. He believes fate put him in touch with Dr. Kenny as they share the same practice philosophy of providing the highest quality dental care in a caring, supportive, and comfortable family atmosphere.

Much like Dr. Kenny and Dr. Vicki, Dr. Hoggard also strongly believes in developing lifelong, trusting relationships with his patients.  He believes dentistry should be more than getting a cleaning or a filling; it should be an educational, wellness-based experience so you can maintain your beautiful smile for a lifetime. Dr. Hoggard has a passion for treating complex cases and finds it extremely fulfilling to see the transformation of a patient’s smile and the huge impact it has on their life and well-being. His numerous hours of continuing education is a testament to his dedication to provide the most up-to-date, advanced, and individualized care to every patient. Dr. Hoggard has completed numerous programs in advanced dental training.  Annually he attends a week long training at the world famous Kois Center. He is a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and has completed numerous courses focusing on occlusion, treatment planning, cosmetic dentistry, dentures, endodontics, oral surgery, and implants.

When Dr. Hoggard is away from the office, you will find him enjoying time with his wife engaging in many outdoor activities.  He shares a love of all things fishing, hunting, surfing, kiteboarding, and boating. He is excited to become a father to a baby girl in May.
