Sam Hutton, DDS
Dr. Sam Hutton is born and raised here in Columbia. He graduated from Zion Christian Academy before attending the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where he earned Summa Cum Laude while finishing a Bachelor of Science in Biology and minor in Chemistry. Rounding off his formal education was the DDS degree through UTHSC where he met Dr. Emalie (and the rest as they say is history).
Dr. Sam is a member of the American Dental Association, the Tennessee Dental Association, and is currently holding office within the 6th District Dental Society.
Dr. Sam spent his early career in public health and private practice before spending several years in surgical practices, during which time he focused on placement and restoration of implants. His passion has become restoring or replacing broken or missing teeth with implants, especially to existing denture patients who may not have known about the benefits of implants.
