Quality Dentistry for Carefree Smiles

Dr. Michael Walton

Growing up, Dr. Walton always enjoyed visiting his dentist because he made every appointment fun and memorable. Now that Dr. Walton has a practice of his own, he hopes to emulate his childhood dentist by combining humor with a personable, communicative approach and making sure every patient enjoys their visit. Dr. Walton is changing the way people in Bardstown view dentistry, and he is proud to offer modern, friendly dental care.

Dr. Walton was born and raised in Bardstown and he earned his DMD from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. For the past 15 years, he has worked here in his hometown and he is deeply involved in the community. When he’s not in the office, Dr. Walton often volunteers his time and talent as the dental director of The Nelson County Community Clinic. Dr. Walton genuinely believes in the power of a healthy, beautiful smile, and when you’re at our office, he will work tirelessly with you to make sure yours is the best it can be.

Hope Riggs

EDDA

Hello! My name is Hope Riggs and I am one of Dr. Walton’s assistants here at Walton Family Dentistry. I graduated from MedQuest College with a Diploma in Expanded Duties Dental Assisting in October of 2017. I previously worked in Louisville for 2 years, and I am very grateful to have found my new dental home here in Bardstown! I currently live in Lebanon, and I grew up in Loretto, KY. In my spare time I love to sing and write songs. I enjoy spending time with my 3 year old daughter along with the rest of my amazing family, whether it be hanging out at the lake, going hiking or just having a big Sunday dinner at my mom’s. I'm so excited to meet all of you!

Hope Edlin

EDDA

I’m originally from Raywick, Marion Co, and graduated from The Medical Institute of Kentucky in September 2019 with a Dental Assisting Degree. A fun fact about me is that I have Situs Inversus Totalis, it involves complete transposition (right to left reversal) of all my internal organs. In my spare time I love to go to the lake and be with my friends and family.

I graduated Kaplan College in 2012 with a Dental Assisting degree but found my true passion in Dental Administration. I was formerly an office manager at a privately owned practice for four years. In my spare time, I love spending time with my fiancé Bryant and our four kids. We love being outdoors and traveling as much as we can.
