Dr. Amanda Hoover is a dentist at our Midlothian Dental Center, Hull Street location. Dr. Hoover earned her undergraduate degree in Biology from Virginia Tech and continued her education at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry, where she earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree.
Dr. Hoover believes dentistry is where science and art harmonize, and she enjoys the combination of proper oral health and the aesthetically focused outcomes she helps her patients achieve. Most of all, she loves getting to know her patients, listening carefully to their needs, and caring for their dental health throughout every stage of life.
“Every patient should experience a safe place, with empathy and understanding. I cater to those who have had bad experiences in the past, and while I am here to relieve pain, I’m also here to help empower patients and prevent issues in the future.”
Dr. Hoover has participated in outreach programs, like Virginia Dental Association's "Mission of Mercy" projects and the American Dental Association's "Give Kids a Smile Day." Outreach programs have always held a special place in her heart, as it has given her the opportunity to provide free dental care to underserved communities.
Dr. Hoover enjoys being active in many local and national dental organizations, including:
In her free time, Dr. Hoover enjoys traveling, exercising, cooking, and being a mom to two avid soccer players. Dr. Hoover is married to Dr. Jared Hoover, a fellow dentist at Midlothian Dental Center. On the weekend when they are not at their kids’ soccer games, you’ll find them enjoying Richmond’s foodie scene at favorite spots like Stellas and L'Opossum.

The staff at Midlothian Dental Center always makes me feel welcome. They give you a warm welcome when you walk in the door. I had brought my daughter with me 3 separate times during Covid and hadn’t been there until my cleaning and the staff remembered my daughter’s name.
Everyone is very nice here from the dentists to the hygienists to the front desk office staff! They are extremely helpful and happy to answer any and all questions. They are very clear about what they are doing and how they can help you with cosmetic or needed dental issues.
The BEST dental staff I've EVER had the pleasure of being a patient of! Dr. Barrett is wonderful at putting his patients at ease and Libby & Mary are so kind and gracious! I and my family have grown with them for over the last 20 years and love them very much!!!
We love working with Dr. Jared Hoover and his team at Midlothian Dental Center! He and his staff are professional yet very welcoming and informative. We always know we are in great care! Makes us look forward to our visits!
Greatest staff ever! We see Dr. Hoover and Erica (Hygienist) and couldn’t be more satisfied. Our 4 year old is obsessed with going to the dentist, and while that’s not common, they made it happen! She had two teeth extracted and laughed the whole time!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Tart for over a year now and have always had a great experience. He and the team are very professional, honest, and seem to really care about helping their patients. I appreciate their COVID protocols and feel very safe at the office. Highly recommend!
Omg! I had a phenomenal visit! Ashley was absolutely terrific. Her experience, knowledge, and overall personality was unmatched. Dr. Gore has a great staff, which has kept me returning year after year for close to thirty years.
I had big hesitations about going to the dentist because I had waited 9+ years due to a really bad exp that created major dental phobia. Thanks to Dr Harris and Karla, I left there feeling better about myself and even though I need work done, I feel confident about going back!! It’s nice to know you are never alone in any situation!
My dad was a dentist and recently passed away, so this was the first dental cleaning in my entire 43 years ever done by someone else. To say I was reticent would be an understatement. However, from the moment I walked in the door to Midlothian Dental Center, I was put at ease. The hygienist, Allison, was charming, kind, and knowledgeable. Dr. Harris was gracious, thorough, and just absolutely lovely. While I will always miss my dad as a dentist, I am confident he is happy to have passed my smile onto Dr. Harris and the team at Midlothian Dental Center. I truly feel blessed to have found a new home for my smile.
