Dr. Hogan is a general dentist, accomplished implant dentist, life-long learner, teacher, father, and resident of Shore Drive/Virginia Beach.   He has a passion for his patients and personalizes his work.   He coined the term “We treat people, NOT teeth!” He felt so strongly about this philosophy that he won a copyright trademark on this and other similar phrases.  People who have been to his practice recognize and appreciate the time he takes to care for them and get to know them by name, face and family.

After his enlistment in the Marine Corps, Dr. Hogan began his professional studies at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. There he attended both undergraduate university followed by dental school. At the Michigan school of Dentistry, he served student council and the community while concurrently receiving clinical accolades and awards. He earned the Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree (DDS) in May 2003. From 2003 to 2006 Dr. Hogan again served in the armed forces as Navy dentist/ and flight deck officer.  Lieutenant (Doctor) Hogan completed a hospital residency (GPR) at Portsmouth Naval Hospital in 2004. His experience was focused in oral surgery to include dental implantology.  In 2005 and 2006, he was appointed the only dentist aboard the USS Ashland, LSD-48.   There he provided quality and comprehensive dental care to sailors, Marines, and foreign military.

Dr. Hogan resigned military service in 2006 and partnered with Dr. Baxter, an internationally recognized icon in implant dentistry.   Subsequently, Dr. Baxter was a phenomenal mentor to Dr. Hogan in general and implant dentistry.   Adding to his professional implant education, Dr. Hogan completed a 1-year postgraduate program (MAXI course) in dental implantology sponsored by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. In the subsequent years he studied and took examinations in Chicago, IL with the AAID and ABOI earning his Associate Fellow, Fellow and Diplomate implant credentials.   As of 2013 less than 500 dentists worldwide hold this credential in implant dentistry.   He performed well on examinations and would later be asked to lecture and teach dental implantology to other dentists.  His lectures have been local, regional, national and even international.   He had the honor of lecturing to dentists in Bologna, Italy in February 2013.

Dr. Hogan credits his happiness and success to his enlistment in the United States Marine Corps, good parents and mentors along the way. He enjoys the beach, boating, wake boarding, playing hockey, working out, and spending time with his children.   He lives in the Shore Drive area of Virginia Beach and proudly supports his local community through youth athletics, coaching and volunteerism.



Although retired from the Navy after a distinguished, twenty-five-year career, Dr. Nancy Reeves, DDS gratuitously agreed to practice part-time with our family of staff and patients.

Dr. Reeves is an accomplished dentist. Among her accolades, she is a board-certified prosthodontist and CEREC trainer for Sirona Dental Systems. She has served and practiced dentistry with many notable clinicians both locally and nationally. Her experience speaks for itself. But her bed-side manner and calm, confident demeanor may slightly supersede her superior skills.

She resides in Virginia Beach with her husband, David, of 35 years. They have three children, Christian who is a 2nd LT in the Army, Kyle who is a senior at the United States Military Academy at West Point, and Jessie who is a sophomore at Cornell University.

Dr. Truman Baxter is a general dentist who focuses his practice in dental implants. He has training and experience in both the surgical and the prosthetic phases of implant therapy. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and a diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology with over 35 years of experience in dental implantology. He is an icon and nationally recognized leader in dental implantology.  It is no wonder that patients of Dr. Baxter have come as far away as New England and across the U.S. to be treated. He has been specially trained for this procedure and has placed over 2000 implants, beginning in 1972. Dr. Baxter takes a genuine interest in meeting and exceeding the expectations of his patients.  Dr. Baxter is semi-retired seeing only a very few select patients and volunteering at the free dental clinic in Virginia Beach.

A lifetime of success:
Dr. Baxter and Dr. Hogan place implants with the intention of having them last a lifetime. Nothing is more important to success than properly planned prosthetic restorations, patient education and periodic re-evaluation of your dental implants. We do everything possible to minimize failure and maximize success. To maximize the potential of success, our doctors stay abreast of the latest dental implant practices and state-of-the-art technology to include: 3-Dimensional implant planning with Cone Beam CT Scans, Laser Dentistry, piezoelectric surgery, digital radiographs, CAD-CAM restorations, Nobel Biocare Dental Implants, Zimmer dental implants, Bicon dental implants, AATB accredited Rocky Mountain Tissue Bank allografts, and CAT Scans.
