I have been a team member of this practice for the last 9 years and have been working in dentistry for 27 years now. What I love most about our practice is that Dr. Hopkins has a vision for the long-term dental health of our patients, but with a conservative approach. Outside of the office I enjoy traveling with family and spending time away at our farm.
