Dr. Ivory Hancock, DMD

Dentist, Cosmetic Dentist, Dental Pain Specialist

Professional statement

Dr. Ivory Hancock, CEO of Ivory Dental Centre, shapes her patients smiles with an extraordinary passion, built on a wealth of experience in the dental field. She began her study of the science at Howard University, where she majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry. Upon graduating, she went on to pursue her Doctorate of Dental Medicine at Temple University’s School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA. After completing her residency at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in New York, she furthered her training as Chief Resident. An avid proponent of further education and perfecting her craft, she then moved on to advanced cosmetic restorative dentistry instruction at the prestigious Rosenthal Institute at NYU School of Dentistry. Dr. Hancock’s commitment to care for her patients is reflected in the stellar personal recommendations she receives. While her superior credentials are impressive, her warm personality and wit are what keep her patients coming back. She strives to have a relationship with her patients on a more personal level. Dr. Hancock is known not only for her clinical skills, but her calming nature. Outside her successful practice, Ivory can be found exercising her deep commitment to bettering her community and making an impact in the world around her. She participates in various mentoring programs, offering advice, education and empowerment to women in business. She is also a strong supporter of youth programs, specifically focusing on the importance of dental hygiene – she will begin a children’s book on the subject this year. An enthusiastic world traveler, she pairs these passions by focusing on dental needs in developing countries - she planned a documentary chronicling her medical mission to Ethiopia in early 2013.

I've been with Dr. Hancock, Kelly, Diana, Jessie and the entire Presidential Group for number of years as they continue to be professional, personable, understanding and patient with those of us who abhor the dentist! Otherwise, I would nottravel from the suburbs, brave the antics of the Metro on any given day to put my oral health in their capable hands. As long as they maintain their level of professionalism... I'll keep coming.
