Dr. Eric Hopkins
I was born and raised in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and left long enough to attain my degrees and returned to serve the community that nurtured me. I am a second-generation dentist, and my wife, Loree, is a second-generation dental office manager. I am very proud to offer my patients the services of a highly trained dental team that shares my philosophy of treating patients the way they would like to see a health professional treat a member of their own family.
I truly enjoy the science and application of skills that either remove discomfort or improve a patient’s self-confidence. I love the friendships with my patients that are unique to dentistry. My staff and I are continually monitoring the advancements in the field and maintain effective application through ongoing education as individuals and as a team. We love the challenge of accomplishing big things in a field often measured in fractions of millimeters.
Outside of the dental practice, I am a PADI Course Director level scuba instructor. My wife and I enjoy our children and grandchildren, travel, outdoor activities, photography, singing, participating in theatre productions and, of course, scuba diving.
