Get to Know
Dr. Gregory Hammond
Dr. Gregory Hammond is excited to, once again, call upstate New York his home. He grew up in Amsterdam, NY, graduating from Amsterdam High School in 2004. In high school, he developed a passion for sports, excelling as an athlete on the Amsterdam Ram’s Varsity Baseball and Football teams. Dr. Hammond went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from Ithaca College in 2008, graduating summa cum laude and in the top 5% of his class. He obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University at Buffalo, School of Dental Medicine, where he graduated with magnum cum laude honors in 2012. In 2013, he completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency with the United States Air Force. His post-graduate education has provided him with top-notch training in restorative, cosmetic, preventative, emergency care, and the latest advances in dental technology.
For the past 11 years, Dr. Hammond has served as an active-duty general dentist for the United States Air Force, recently being selected for promotion to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. During his time in the Air Force, he has been stationed in Ohio, Wyoming, Germany, and California. The highlight of his military career was the 3-year assignment to Ramstein Air Base in Germany, where Dr. Hammond and his team delivered comprehensive care to the 19,000 active-duty personnel and their families. Living in Europe was a once in a lifetime experience, where he gained an appreciation for different cultures and a passion for travel (he has visited over 25 countries in Europe!). Currently, Dr. Hammond is finishing up his final assignment at Beale AFB, California, acting as the lead dentist providing care to the U-2 pilots and their team members. He plans to continue his military service with the New York Air National Guard.
Dr. Hammond and his wife (Kristin) have been married for 12 years. They have been together since they met at Ithaca College as students in 2005. Kristin is from Massachusetts, so he had to forgive her for being a Patriots and Red Sox fan. Kristin and Dr. Hammond have a 3-year-old daughter (Kamden), 1-year-old son (Thomas), and a 10-year-old Dalmatian (Hudson). They are excited to raise their family in the town of Bethlehem and are committed to making positive contributions to the community.
Dr. Hammond is thrilled to become a part of the team at Glenmont Dental. He is an experienced dentist that is known for his friendly nature, positive attitude, and contagious sense of humor. He looks forward to earning your trust and providing exceptional dental care to you and your families.
