Quotes

“As my patient, you can expect your comfort to be my number one priority. I know that all visits to the oral surgeon’s office are wrought with anxiety and I strive to make the visit as laid back and low key as possible while still maintaining a professional and efficient environment.”

Personal Favorites

Dr. Hopkin loves books on tape and will listen to just about anything, but thrillers and action adventure are his favorite. He’s a typical guy and any movie with explosions will do it for him. His favorite vacation spot is Hawaii, though Costa Rica is right there with it.
