Dr. Hamilton Vason (Hamp) grew up in Atlanta. A long-time family friend, Dr. Kenneth Grubbs, inspired him to become a dentist. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in microbiology, Dr. Vason attended Emory Dental School and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1980. He then served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps in beautiful Naples, Italy. He has been in private practice in Atlanta since 1984.
Dr. Vason and his wife, Nancy, have been married for 30 years. Nancy coordinates payroll and provides administrative support for the practice. They have two children, Betsie, who is in her fourth year at the University of Virginia, and Carlisle, a senior at The Westminster Schools.
