A Richmond native who graduated from Richmond Christian School, Dr. Alex Hawkins earned his bachelor’s degree with honors from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1999, and his DDS degree from the VCU School of Dentistry in 2004.
After associating for five years in two different offices, he purchased the practice now named after him in early 2009–a choice he considers among the best he’s ever made. Bettering his abilities by completing coursework at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, obtaining certification in Six Month Smiles short-term orthodontics, and equipping his practice with the latest meaningful technologies such as Cerec same-day crowns, Dr. Hawkins stays ahead of the curve to ensure your satisfaction. He loves helping those in deepest need, having volunteered for dental missions in both Honduras and twice in Peru.
When not ridding the world of tooth decay, he enjoys spending time with his wife Amy and their children. He also thrives on rousing games of ping-pong, singing at his church, playing Frisbee with the family German Shepherd named Cinnamon, and–as the Official Dentist of VCU Athletics–rooting for the “soon-to-be National Champion” VCU Men’s Basketball team at every opportunity!
