I know that all visits to the oral surgeons 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” as stated by Dr. Hopkin.

In his spare time, Dr. Hopkin enjoys woodworking, welding, and riding anything with a motor. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, Allison, and their four children in the mountains hunting, fishing, and just hanging out.
