I went into dentistry because I wanted to help people and it couldn't be a better profession. I have been doing it for 30 years and I go to work every day with a smile. I love working. I can see myself working another 10 to 15 years. My educational background is I went to University of Detroit for three years of undergrad, and then I got into dental school after three years. I went to Medical College of Virginia, which now they call Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. Then I had four years of dental school and I've been a dentist ever since.
You know you are in great hands with Hood E. Biggers, DDS at his Midlothian, VA dentist office. Dr. Biggers has been practicing dentistry for more than 30 years, 25 of them in his own practice. A Michigan native, he is a 1986 graduate of the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. A sports fan, he served as the official dentist for the Richmond Renegades hockey team for 15 years.
A Tech-Savvy Dentist
Even though he has been a dentist for three decades, Dr. Biggers is always interested in acquiring new skills, especially if they involve using the latest dental technology. He describes himself as offering the most modern, up-to-date technology mixed with old-fashioned caring. He backs it up by learning and offering advanced procedures, such as using a high-tech imaging and milling system to create same-day dental crowns in his Midlothian, VA dentist office.
Dr. Biggers also shares his knowledge with fellow dentists in presentations on topics such as how to handle emergency responses. He maintains memberships in the American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association, Richmond Dental Society, Academy of Sports Dentistry, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
A Real Family FeelDr. Hood Biggers on being the dentist for the Richmond Renegades Read Transcript
Used to be the dentist for the Richmond Renegades hockey team for 15 years. I had lots of practice putting together mouths and faces, and occasionally other body parts. Usually it was the opposing team because they wouldn't necessarily like the dentist sewing up their arm or leg or something, so I wouldn't tell them that I was a dentist until after.
Dr. Biggers and his staff consider their patients part of a big, extended “family.” As he says, “We know their names and faces and treat them as if we’ve known them forever, even if it is the first time we’ve met.” Dr. Biggers enjoys working with people of all ages in his practice, and he has patients ranging in age from 2 to 98 to prove it!
Dr. Biggers enjoys sharing time with his immediate family as well. He and his wife, Yasmine, have a blended family of five children. Dr. Biggers knows the names of at least some of the Disney princesses, thanks to his six granddaughters, all of whom are under the age of 11.
