Meet The Doctor
My goal is to establish and maintain my patients’ good oral health by providing the basis for good overall systemic health and well-being. I spend one-on-one time with my patients, to make sure they understand their condition and treatment plan options completely, so we can create a healthy outcome.
In the years I’ve been practicing, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and care for many remarkable people from my community — many of whom are my friends, family, and neighbors. They have all made an impact in my life, I hope as much as I have made in theirs.
Education and Continuing Education
- Undergraduate degree – University of Virginia
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine – Medical College of Virginia / Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry
Learning is a lifelong necessity, especially when one works in the dental field. There is always something new to learn, whether it’s a procedure or technique, or a revolutionary new technology. Staying current with the advances in dentistry empowers me to provide the most up-to-date treatment options to my patients, which in turn helps them to achieve better levels of oral health.
Outside The Office
I was born, raised, and am proud to have practiced for more than three decades in my hometown of Newport News. My wife and I raised two beautiful daughters here. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending quality time with my family, walking the dog, fishing, sailing, and doing hands-on projects around the house.

CHRISTY HEARNE, RDH, BSREGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
I graduated from Old Dominion University School of Dental Hygiene in 1989 and joined Dr. Loving’s office in 1993. As our dental hygienist, I play a significant role in the overall dental health and well-being of our patients.
I am responsible for providing in-office hygiene care and teaching patients how to manage their dental hygiene at home, in addition to a variety of preventive care services. My reward comes from seeing the results of patients’ hard work at their future appointments.
I am a huge animal lover and have five pets of my own. My favorite charities help animals around the country. I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and three sons, being outdoors, working in the yard, and going out on our boat.
ERIN COBB, RDH, BSREGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
I began my career in dentistry as an assistant in 1998, returned to school at Old Dominion University for dental hygiene in 2008, and joined Dr. Loving’s team in 2016.
The best part of my job is the feeling of satisfaction I receive from educating my patients on taking care of their mouths and in return seeing the results of great homecare. It is great to be able to show patients that their hard work and diligence pays off.
I’m a mother to a 13-year-old daughter, Skyler, as well as a lab named Lizzie and a kitty, Stormie. When I’m not working, I play volleyball and kickball in two all-women’s leagues. My daughter is an avid field hockey player, but also loves and plays basketball and soccer, so I spend most of my free time at a field of some sort. My family loves playing sports as well as watching them. If there is a game on TV or being played close by, we are watching it! When we actually have some free time, I enjoy spending time with my two animals and relaxing with my daughter.
