Meet Dr. Jonathan Hopkins

"I understand how important it is to choose an orthodontist who is well qualified to take care of your smile and the precious smiles of your children. I graduated from Hendrix College for my undergraduate degree and continued onto the University of Tennessee where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I completed my orthodontic training in Louisiana State University in 2006. Since then, I have been dedicated to my career and giving my patients the best options for enhancement of their smiles."
