Our History

Dr. Kolsun opened the doors to his practice in Silver Spring on August 15, 1984. Since then, Hempfield Family Dental Care has grown from a small single chair dental office along a closed road and backed up to a cornfield, to his current facility with six chairs and a staff of nine. Following the values he learned while achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, Dr. Kolsun has always strived to provide the best dental care, while treating all of his patients as family and friends.

Today, Hempfield Family Dental Care is an integrated team of dental specialists including hygienists and expanded duty assistants, all working together to provide the best care for patients. Dr. Kolsun has invested in the latest technologies to make common procedures easier, as well as advanced diagnostic equipment that helps detect many conditions earlier. Hempfield Family Dental Care is one of only a few practices that makes use of a Velescope for pre-cancer detection.

After 30 years, Dr. Kolsun remains the solo dentist at Hempfield Family Dental Care out of his desire to maintain the integrity of his practice and be responsible for the care of all his patients.
