• Meet Dr. Hylton

  • Dr. William H. Hylton, DMD

    I work to give my patients hope for a pleasant dental experience that leads to brilliant, healthy smiles. I want to show each patient that dentistry can be a positive thing and break the cycle of unpleasant dental experiences. High quality dental care has the ability to change lives for the better. At our office, I am pleased to help patients achieve more than just smiles; I have the opportunity to give self-esteem and take chronic pain away. My patients leave the office confident to smile widely and without pain.

    Education and Continuing Education

    My road to attaining an excellent education began at Fork Union Military Academy and Virginia Commonwealth University where I graduated with my undergraduate degree. I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at Temple University School of Dentistry and completed my residency at the Medical College of Pennsylvania.

    By actively participating in continuing education, I am able to stay current with the latest dental techniques and technologies. I am committed to providing my patients with the best oral health care available. I have taken courses on TMJ and migraine treatments with TruDenta, giving my patients relief from pain and discomfort. I have also earned certifications through ClearCorrect and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.

    My Philosophy

    My philosophy is simple: if you treat everyone with the care and respect they deserve, they will tell others and everyone will benefit from the relationship. This includes all members of our staff. We all focus on teamwork, and I trust my staff to provide my patients with the same level of care, compassion, and quality I provide.

    Community Involvement

    I believe that we all have a duty to contribute to our community. I am involved with the Doctors with a Heart program which gives free dental care to low income patients in the surrounding area. It is very important to me that everyone has access to good dental care; it is a health necessity in my book. I also am an officer with the New Haven Gaelic Football Club through which I promote Irish youth sports.

    Outside the Office

    I married my dental school sweetheart and have been with her for 21 years now. We have three boys who are very active athletically. I love supporting them in their many different activities from ice hockey to Irish football. I also enjoy boating and fishing. I also play guitar in a band and have recorded music in my free time.
