Testimonials

It’s been quite awhile since I have had the courage to go back to a dentist (extremely nervous and lots of anxiety – bad early dental experiences). I found Dr. Hopkins and his staff via Google – his office is a private practice and offers sedation dentistry (which helped give me the courage to call and make my first appointment). I knew this would be best for me. His staff is warm, comforting and very professional. They picked up that I was extremely nervous and were extremely supportive of my fears and anxieties. I couldn’t have asked for a better office and doctor. Dr. Hopkins was very calming and reassuring; but even more importantly – a phenomenal dentist. Fast forward a couple of months . . . I’ve had a root canal and two crowns . . . and I had it done without the sedation dentistry option. Dr. Hopkins and his staff are THAT good. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders . . . that I have found Dr. Hopkins and his staff.

Dr. Hopkins is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. I wish I had found him sooner. My family and I started seeing his practice about 3 years ago. His staff is sweet and friendly. His hygienist Lisa is so awesome. She does a fantastic job. I highly recommend his practice!

~Elizabeth Perrino, May 2019

The office staff is warm and friendly and always happy to do anything they can to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Dr. Hopkins is absolutely the best dentist around. He has handled many difficult procedures for me and I can honestly say I have never experienced a painful visit. You know immediately when you enter their office you are in good hands.

I love Dr. Hopkins and his entire staff. Best dentist I have ever been to. The office and exam rooms are spotless. Each exam room has a nice view of plantings and sky and the hygienist’s chair offers a great view of an osprey nest. They are always on time. The warm face cloth at the end of an appointment is a nice touch.

~Kathlyn, May 2019

Every staff member is a pleasure to work with. The crowns are the best I have ever had. Takes the time to explain your options and lets you decide what works best for you. The work of this office and the offices that they refer me to for specialty work, are second to none.

~Richard, May 2019

I used to hate when it came time for my cleaning. It was even worse when I knew I had to have any work done. I would literally have to take a sedative to calm me down and give me the courage to go to my appointment. However after switching to Dr. Hopkins twelve years ago I was able to overcome my fear and no longer hate to go in for my cleanings. Dr. Hopkins has handled numerous procedures for me and I can honesly say I have never experienced any pain during the process. My comfort was always a priority and the entire staff makes you feel so comfortable.

~Diane, April 2019

Dr. Hopkins, Jess and the rest of the staff are amazing to work with. They take great care to make sure that I am comfortable and the end result of our work is fantastic! I would refer Dr. Hopkins and his practice to anyone looking for a great dental provider.

I am always impressed with the professionalism and caring manner of Doctor Mike and staff. Going to the dentist is stressful and they always manage to put me at ease. Thank you!!!

~Marsha, June 2018

Extremely friendly and compassionate staff! Everyone is very understanding and empathetic to the “fear of the dentist” mindset. All of my questions were answered in terms that I could understand. Absolutely love this office and all of the staff!!

~Tammy, May 2018

Dr. Hopkins & his staff are always so friendly & accommodating. Helping me feel comfortable while finding knowledgeable solutions for my dental needs is their top priority. They were highly recommended to me years ago. As I continue to visit them for care, I would, in turn, highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for excellent dental experiences. Thank you Dr. Hopkins & team!

~Johonna, July 2018

My dentist of 20 years said a new denture couldn’t be done….but Dr. Mike is amazing- he took me on; and now when I smile you can see my teeth!! He treats the whole patient. He also made it so I look almost wrinkle-free, and at 65 THAT is amazing!!!

Dr. Hopkins and his friendly staff welcomed me in for a very pleasant office visit and cleaning.  I was greeted by name at the front desk, impressive since I had only visited one other time before. I was provided with excellent service and suggestions for regular maintenance and problem solving for long term issues I had been experiencing.  Thanks again and see you in 6 months for my next cleaning.

Being a Realtor I love doing business with Professional Friendly businesses, I am always greeted with a welcome and warm smile. I really value the staff remembering me and taking the extra time to ask me about my day. They are great!
~Vickee Walthall, September 2016

BEST Dental office I have ever been to. Dr. Mike is fantastic and the staff is top notch. Before going to Hopkins Dentistry, I had a horrible teeth and gum situation. They have gotten me back to smiling again and my health has improved greatly. Highly recommend.

~Paul Good, September 2016

Pleasant and friendly atmosphere! He’s the best! My daughter loves him for all her dental work. Highly recommend.
~Rosslyn Swift, September 2016

Hopkins Dentistry has changed my life. I was terrified of going to any dentist but  now I look forward to my next visit. I don’t have to be afraid of the dentist ever again!! Thanks to Dr. Mike, and a special thanks to Colleen, Lois, Madelaine and Miriam and the rest of the staff! All of you have been kind, patient, and extremely professional. Dr. Mike does superlative work. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
~Maria S., July 2015

Great dentist, and very professional staff. They even cater to babies like me. I’ve never been in discomfort while being treated there, and I’ve been a client for 5 years. I have referred my friends, and they are all happy with the level of professionalism, and care, they have received.
~Todd Richardson, May 2016

I may never get the years back but Dr. M. Hopkins has given me my smile back. His ability to work with people who have such fears as I had for the dentist is remarkable. For this I thank you and your entire staff for your encouragement, caring and professionalism.
~Brenda K., July 2015

Lisa is outstanding. From her greeting to final “have a nice day”, Lisa is pleasant, professional and makes you feel like a family member, not a patient. Your office takes the edge off of a dental appointment.
~Mark V., July 2015

I am so grateful to have found a dentist that the time you walk in to the time you leave that you feel comfortable. My whole family is pleased. Dr. Mike is so kind, professional, but most of all caring. The whole staff goes out of their way to make the whole experience not as stressful. Thank you.
~Terry N, August 2014

“All staff have always been and continue to be extraordinary! Welcoming, courteous, professional and very knowledgeable! Bravo! ”

~Anne P, January 2015

“Dr, Mike sets the tone and everyone on his staff are equally professional, friendly and caring.”

~Erika SJ, February 2015

“Unquestionably good treatment during all procedures- all my questions were answered, and Dr. Mike even phoned me later that evening to make sure things were A-Okay!

~Bob H, April 2015

Extremely professional, thorough and caring. The best dentist office I ever visited. Everyone works together as a team. I’ve been a patient for almost 10 years and I believe “Dr. Mike” will see me for the rest of my life. Also, the cost is reasonable and fair.

~Marie Bedard, April 2014

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Mike’s for nearly 20 years and would never think of going anywhere else. My most recent visit was for a crown & a cleaning. From start to finish everything was handled with care. Great staff, great patience and everyone takes the amount of time needed to put you at ease and make the process as comfortable as possible.

~Joan Dzedzy, March 2014

I just wanted write you and your staff to tell you how much I think of all of you. I want you to know I feel better about myself and my health. I will be telling anyone I find that needs dental work about you. Once again, thank all of you, from my heart. I greatly appreciate all you and your staff have done for me. Great team! Tim Duke, September 2011

17 dentists in two states had absolutely refused to treat me… when I found Dr. Hopkins I was desperate. My front upper teeth were awful to look at. I looked like Dracula! I stopped visiting my grandchildren. Dr. Hopkins, and his talented and dedicated staff solved my dental problems. In just one sedation session, Dr. Hopkins surgically removed 18 of my giant teeth, manually removed six more , and did some repair filling work on three of the eight remaining teeth. It is hard to believe, but absolutely true, I suffered no pain at all. I am a very grateful patient. Richard Cary Paull, 2011

SIMPLY THE BEST: If this sounds more like a rave than a testimonial it’s because all I can do is rave about Hopkins Aesthetic & Reconstructive Dentistry in Dunedin, Florida. I’m not the greatest dental patient in the world, but I honestly can say that I look forward to my trips to Dr. Mike and coming from me that’s a mouthful (no pun intended). The office is spotlessly clean and every one of the staff, from Colleen at the front desk, to the dental assistants is wonderful.  When you walk into Hopkins Aesthetic & Reconstructive Dentistry you’re made to feel special. As for Dr. Mike Hopkins, what can I say?  Well, to begin with I can say he is incredibly gifted as a dentist and he is friendly, kind, compassionate and unbelievably patient. I’m a denture wearer and nobody has ever made me a set of dentures that begin to compare to the quality and fit that Dr. Hopkins made for me.  I’ve always had problems wearing dentures and Dr. Mike came up with the idea of making me a palate-less denture to solve my gagging problems.  It changed my life! If you live in Dunedin, Oldsmar, Clearwater, Largo, Seminole or anywhere in Pinellas County, Florida, or anywhere in Tampa Bay for that matter, you can’t go wrong making Hopkins Aesthetic & Reconstructive Dentistry your dental care of choice.  They’re simply the best. Susan Currie, October 6th, 2009

The day I arrived at the TMJ Center, I knew I was in the right place. I had been dealing with pain for almost a year with no relief; having been treated for infections that weren’t there and other maladies to no avail. Finally, I was referred to Dr. Mike and the TMJ Center for diagnosis. I was welcomed with empathy and concern by Dr. Mike and his staff and after examination and x-rays was in fact diagnosed with TMJ. That was about ten years ago and I am now stabilized and also a regular dental patient with Dr. Mike. Only someone who has experienced the pain of TMJ will understand the relief and comfort I now enjoy as a result of the treatment and care of Dr. Mike and his staff. They are truly dedicated and loving professionals. Joan Edgerton, March 6, 2007

I have been a patient of “Dr. Mike’s” since I moved to Florida 25 years ago. Dr. Mike has successfully provided TMJ treatment as well as providing care for all of my dental needs. No one looks forward to going to the dentist, but I must say that I am comfortable with Dr. Mike and have a world of confidence in his practice. I have recommended Dr. Mike to my family and friends, and will continue to do so. You would be very fortunate to be a part of Dr. Mike’s family of patients. Bernice Mahnic

After having my dental work done, people didn’t immediately realize what was different about me. One of my friends that I hadn’t seen in a while asked me if I had had a face lift! Felice Zeldin

Dr. Mike was very understanding of my concerns and apprehension, and took the time to carefully explain every procedure and option available to me. With his help and advice for the best possible course of treatment, I opted for Invisalign braces, which turned out to be the perfect solution for me!

Just under two years later, with a bit of whitening (courtesy of Dr. Mike), I now have the bright , beautiful smile that I always wanted. The transformation simply amazes me, every time I look in the mirror! Most importantly, the fears and concerns I once had regarding dental work are no longer an issue for me. I have found in Dr. Mike and his staff, a group of caring, competent professionals, whom I feel extremely comfortable with. They are just a wonderful group of people. I never thought I’d say this, but…. I really love going to the dentist! Frances Ocampo, March 5, 2007

Dr. Mike has cared for my severe TMJ for four years now and I wouldn’t trust anyone else for conservative care. Yes, it is a hike to travel from Spring Hill but its well worth it. His staff is personable, courteous and professional and if you need to hang out, his office is a very easy drive to Honeymoon Island so bring your book and a beach towel! Patricia Bidwell

Imagine the Joy… thank you for easing the pain and putting a smile back in its place! Diane Wiley
