Experienced Georgia Dentist

In 1968 John Hughes proudly, and expectantly, opened his first office. Since then his dedication to the field of dentistry has never wavered. His first concern has always been the first line of defense, the maintenance of the family's dental health. However, there are other needs. As time has passed the methods of treating and correcting have changed and improved.

Dr. Hughes has continued to seek the best training and education on these methods and treatments. His quest began in 1960 through 1962 at Baylor University continuing at Georgia State University from 1962 - 1965. In 1968 the University of Tennessee Dental College bestowed upon him the well-earned title of D.D.S.

Dr. Hughes is an active member of several Dental and Professional associations and organizations. In the Northern District Dental Society he has served as Chairman of the Continuing Education Committee and on its Executive Council; as well as served as the President of the Atlanta Craniomandibular Society. He is also a Fellow in both the Academy of General Dentistry and the International College of Craniomandibular Orthopedics.

Dr. Hughes is currently bringing his extensive experience to bear providing his care, skill and judgement to patients in need of Extractions, Implants, Partials, Dentures and Repairs at the Gillespie Denture Center in Decatur. Although Dr. Hughes limits his current practice to these areas, the full range of dental services provided by Dr. Hughes in the past are outlined in this website to a assure each patient that he or she is getting the best dental care available by a dentist with a lifetime of experience.
