About Us

Your Trusted General &
Cosmetic Dentists in Fort Wayne

Dupont Dentistry Team
At Dupont Family Dentistry in Fort Wayne, our doctors, Dr. David Diehl and Dr. Jason Hemphill, and our dedicated staff make getting to know you our top priority. We believe that quality dentistry depends on a strong doctor-patient relationship. Full and open communication between patients and staff is essential to not only making your experience in our office a pleasant one, but also in creating custom treatment plans designed to maximize your oral health.

The care we provide for our patients goes far beyond dentistry; we want to form a positive, trusting relationship with you. For us, getting to know you – your medical history, your goals for the future, and your dog’s name – is important, and equally important, we think you should know a little bit about the person working on your mouth. Get to know Dr. Diehl, Dr. Hemphill and our friendly staff below. With questions, concerns, or to schedule an appointment, feel free to give us a call or stop by the office. We look forward to getting to know you and your family!
