Meet Our Dentists

Dr. Nick Griggs

Hey there! My name is Dr. Griggs, it’s wonderful to meet you all! Having spent nearly all my life in Ohio, you may recognize me around Wilmington as the only one not wearing a winter coat in February!

During the majority of my time in undergrad at The University of Akron (in Akron, OH) you could find me singing and studying. I was a member of the college’s premier a cappella group, Nuance, where we had the privilege of performing for Michelle Obama and Lebron James, as well as competing in the ICCAs (and yes, at times it was very much like Pitch Perfect). I later went on to graduate with honors and received my Bachelor’s of Science degree with a major area of study in Biology and minor areas of study in Engineering and Statistics.

I must have quickly forgotten all those days I walked to class in the snowy, sub zero weather because a year later I started dental school at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Throughout my four years there I held the position of Special Events Chair for the OSU American Student Dental Association as well as the position of President of the OSU Student Government Association, and I was a member of the Psi Omega dental fraternity.

When I’m not working or studying teeth, I love running, playing music, painting, traveling, skiing, and trying new things around Wilmington. (Surfing did not go well!)

While Ohio will always be first home, I am so thankful that Wilmington is my second. This community has been so incredibly welcoming and kind to me, it’s the least I can do to reciprocate the same! I look forward to meeting you soon!

Dr. Jeremiah Hilton

My name is Jeremiah, people also call me ‘Jerome’. I was born in India and moved to Kuwait at the age of 5 - props to you if you know where this country is because it is tiny! After finishing high school, I went back to India to pursue dental school for 5 years and graduated with a BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) in 2014. I moved to the United States in 2015 to pursue a MPH (Masters in Public Health). In 2020, I graduated from my two-year advanced standing dental program at the University of Oklahoma with my DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery). I am very passionate about dentistry and love helping patients attain their dental health goals.

Outside the office, you will probably find me at the gym after work or trying to cook a new recipe. I also love watching and playing soccer and basketball. I enjoyed living in Oklahoma- Go OKC Thunder! Now I’m excited to explore Wilmington and looking forward to picking up a few water activities now that I live by the beach. I look forward to being a part of the Wilmington community and taking care of all your dental needs!
