Meet Dr. John Hyson IV
General Dentist, Succasunna
Dr. John Hyson IV is a fourth generation dentist who spent time at both his father’s and grandfather’s dental offices while growing up. Seeing firsthand the memorable bond they each had with their patients, Dr. Hyson knew he wanted the same trusting, long-term relationships with his own patients.
After graduating from Towson University (MD) with his BS and MS in microbiology, Dr. Hyson continued his education at University of Maryland School of Dentistry. He then completed a rigorous general pracitice residency program at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn.
During his senior year in dental school, Dr. Hyson was selected for the prestigious Special Care and Geriatrics Clerkship in recognition of his ability to compassionately and expertly provide care to geriatric and special needs patients. He also received a Special Care Award for his continuous care of adults with special needs, which continued into his residency.
When not helping others achieve the smile of their dreams as a dentist in Succasunna, Dr. Hyson enjoys doing charitable work – especially by participating in dental missions to provide much needed care to the underprivileged. Once, while on a dental mission to Kibosho, Tanzania, Dr. Hyson checked an item off his bucket list – to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro! Dr. Hyson’s compassion extends as far as his love for rescue animals and says, “If I had my way, I would take in all animals in need of a home.”
