Dr. Derrick Hinkle

Mountain Dental is excited to welcome Dr. Hinkle and his wife, Erica, to work with us in our Dubois practice.

Dr. Hinkle graduated with a doctorate in dental surgery from West Virginia University in 2001 and soon after moved to Montana where he met his wife, Erica. After the couple married in 2003, they moved to Buffalo, Wyoming. They built a practice in Buffalo for the next 8 years.

While living in Buffalo, the family visited Dubois and fell in love with the area and all the beauty it offers. In 2007, they began building their home on Union Pass Road with the hope of one day living there. This dream became a reality when they were able to move to Dubois in May of 2020.

After commuting to Casper and working at Community Health Center of Central Wyoming for the last 2 years, Dr. Hinkle is happy for the opportunity to be part of the Dubois community and provide dental care for the people of Dubois and surrounding areas. The couple has three children – Nate, who is a sophomore at Dubois High School; Camden, who is a 6th grader, and Sadie who is in the 4th grade.
