When Dr. Adam Hahn earned his DMD from the Medical University of South Carolina, he made the decision to return home to Columbia.
He decided to complete his residency training at Palmetto Health Richland. Dr. Hahn’s residency experience focused on general and cosmetic dentistry, including the placement and restoration of dental implants, as well as sedation dentistry. He has further honed his skills with additional training as a neuromuscular and cosmetic dentist at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dentistry and learning from his father’s more than 35 years of dental experience.
Although he earned his BS from Tulane University in 1997, Dr. Adam Hahn graduated from Chapin High School. He felt returning home was a natural decision.

Modern Digital Workflow
Dr. Hahn is very excited to add an advanced, digital workflow to our office. When we add technology to the office, we choose devices that will improve our patient experience. We know this does. We start with scans from our Planmeca ProMax CBCT (cone beam computed tomography). This gives very detailed images of your teeth and bones, and we use those images to plan many different procedures, including:
Dr. Hahn knows how to utilize these images to speed treatment and improve accuracy. Digital dental implant surgery guides incorporate the Hahn tapered implant surgery to create an efficient, seamless, highly accurate implant surgery. We invite you to experience the process for yourself. You will be amazed.
