About us

Dr. J. Hunter Hicklin, DMD

Dr. Hicklin is an upstate native, grew up in Spartanburg, and graduated from Furman University with a BS in Biology in 2005. He enjoys living in Greenville SC and felt there was no better place to plant his roots and his practice.

Dr. Hicklin graduated a Doctor in Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina Dental School in 2009, and completed an additional year of General Practice residency at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. During his residency, he 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 says, “For me, dentistry doesn’t feel like work-I can’t imagine doing anything else. I enjoy the variety of procedures and especially getting to know my patients!”

In his leisure time, Dr. Hicklin can be found spending time with his wife, Anna Louise, their daughter Mary Joyce, their young son Sanford, and his Boykin Spaniel named Cooper. He loves time in the outdoors, running, biking, hunting, and kayaking.

Dr. Allison Caldwell, DMD

Dr. Caldwell grew up in Spartanburg, SC. In fact, she and Dr. Hicklin grew up right down the road from one another! She attended Clemson University for undergrad and then went on to the Medical University of South Carolina to earn her DMD. She has been practicing in the upstate ever since graduating in 2013.

Dr. Caldwell has a passion for helping others feel confident in their smiles, and enjoys practicing all facets of general dentistry in order to help patients achieve their optimal oral health goals. When she’s not practicing dentistry, she is busy taking care of her wonderful family, which includes her husband, David, and their three beautiful daughters.

Dr. Caldwell is excited to get to know our wonderful Reedy River patients. Please help us welcome her when you see her smiling face around the office!
