Local Experts, Personal Touch: Hopkins’ Best in Dental Care

From Our Family to Yours: Compassionate

Dentistry in the Heart of Hopkins

Is a dentist’s visit something you don’t look forward to? Maybe that’s because many dentists -

Make you wait long periods in the chair

Dentists overbook like airlines just in case someone doesn’t show up. This can lead to long, inconvenient waiting room stays.

Don’t get to know you or listen to you

They don’t make you feel welcome and appreciated.  Hopkins Family Dentistry is part of the Hopkins Community. Treating you like family.

Don’t have convenient, early, and late appointments

Often, you have to miss work because they don’t offer early, late, or weekend appointments.

Don’t treat you like you’re part of the family

Sometimes they don’t even know your name. They just get you in and out as quickly as possible. That’s not a family atmosphere.

Our dentists and staff value you and your time.

Meeting new people every day is a highlight of my job. It’s a privilege to connect with patients, understand their needs, and help them achieve optimal oral health.

I’ve been coming to this office since I was about 6 with Dr. Boyatt and recently Dr. Avant seamlessly joined the family. It really does feel like family - everyone is so friendly, remembers details about your life, and genuinely cares about their patients. I can’t imagine ever going anywhere else.

Dr. Avant is awesome! I hate going to the dentist, but Christina, Eba, and Dr. Avant are so kind and helpful that I was totally comfortable with my appointment. Excellent service. I asked a lot of questions about dentures and needed help with billing. Eba & Christina were so patient and explained the procedures & billing. I highly recommend Hopkins Family Dentistry!

Had a crown removed to take care of decay underneath it. The process was wonderful and they even were able to make a new crown right there. Love this new technology. Dr Avant and assistant were wonderful and would highly recommend her.

These folks are amazing. A lot of pride in their work. They take care of you. Smaller operation. Real people. Much better than Park Dental or other larger conglomerates.

Family Dentists


At Hopkins Family Dentistry, we understand that visiting the dentist isn’t at the top of your favorite things-to-do list. In the past, a trip to the dentist meant taking a day off of work to endure a super long wait in the waiting room, then an uncomfortable, often painful procedure. That was followed by a hefty bill with very few payment options for your troubles.


Advances in technology allow us to offer same-day crowns and faster, less painful procedures. At Hopkins Family Dentistry, we are precise about how long those procedures will take, and how much they’ll cost. We can accurately schedule appointments, eliminating frustrating wait times, so we have time to get to know you well.



You’re smart. You know your mouth better than anyone. After all, you’ve had a relationship with it all your life. That’s why we listen to you and value you as a person and a patient. Your feedback and opinions help us map out the best decisions with you and help us get to know you better, so we can create a professional and friendly relationship.



Not everyone has insurance, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have access to the best dentistry available. Hopkins Family Dentistry offers a variety of options, aimed at making even the most advanced procedures affordable for everyone.
