Hunter Hicklin, DMD

Dr. Hicklin joined Great Oaks Dental in April, 2012. Dr. Hicklin graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina in 2009. Following graduation, he moved to Birmingham and the University of Alabama to complete his one year graduate studies in General Practice Dentistry. During his residency, Dr. Hicklin acquired an expanded knowledge of many dental procedures and became uniquely qualified to treat medically complex patients. He continues his education through the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association and the South Carolina Dental Association. Dr. Hicklin currently takes care of patients on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Great Oaks. He fits right in with our friendly staff and he adds to the comfortable and caring atmosphere we cultivate.

Dr. Hicklin grew up in Spartanburg, SC and graduated from Furman University in 2005. He is an active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC. He is married to Anna Louise and they have two small children. In his spare time he enjoys running, biking, hunting, and camping. He says, “For me, dentistry does not feel like work – I can’t imagine doing anything else! I enjoy the variety of procedures and the hands on, personal characteristics of dentistry.”

Dr. Giddings and his staff are wonderful. The staff is professional and friendly, they care about their patients and it shows. I know most of us don’t like going to the dentist, but Dr. Giddings has a soft touch and really does his best to make the visit as comfortable as possible. I have TMJ and can’t leave my mouth open for long periods of time, and he is great to give me breaks so I don’t end up with headaches after I leave. I would absolutely recommend this team to my family and friends

This was the most thorough dental cleaning and checkup that I have ever had! I have a lot of confidence in this practice. Brittany was very professional and knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. Dr. Giddings was very nice and reassuring and also very professional. I would highly recommend this practice!!

For a person with dental work anxiety like me, the level of professionalism combined with care and the desire to keep the anxiety to a minimum is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

This was my second visit and it was as pleasant as the first. My questions were answered, all staff were extremely friendly, they did a great job cleaning my teeth, and they didn’t try to “sell” me on extra services.

This staff, from the Dentists to the assistants to the front desk are the friendliest, most professional and compassionate people ever to staff an office. I had to have an emergency cap for a broken tooth. With their machine (a lot like a 3D printer) I had a new, permanent cap in less than 2 hours.

“Everyone, from the office staff, hygienist, and dentist, were extremely friendly and professional. State of the art equipment and care.”

5 Star Review – May 12, 2016

“It is an honor to be able to share life with our patients – as they grow up, marry, and become parents and grandparents. I share in their ups and downs, and have the privilege of caring for their dental needs all along the way.”
– Dr. Paul Giddings
