Andrew Hopkins

Andrew qualified at Guys Hospital in 1986 and developed a passion for restorative dental care early on as an undergraduate. In his final year, he was awarded the Newland Pedley Medal and Prize in restorative care, and was then awarded a House Officer position in the restorative department. This provided the impetus for many post graduate courses to refine his techniques in modern Cosmetic and Restorative care.

He established Oakmead Dental Care in 1989 with Peter Dooley. They had a vision to provide a refreshing approach to dentistry built on a foundation of mutual trust and respect for those people seeking our care. His empathetic nature makes him ideally suited to supporting anxious individuals and children through their dental care.

When not at work, Andrew can be found on the touchlines of some sporting venue supporting his two young sons. He is also active in fund raising for children's charities. He enjoys cycling and trekking and competes in triathlons. One of his most testing challenges so far was the 100km Trailblazer trek completed within 24hrs around Skipton. He found this even more challenging than the trek to Everset Basecamp.

When asked about the practice's philosophy Andrew answers, 'Our patients are the heart of our practice and the goal of our whole team is to provide a top-quality dental experience for them. It is our priority to ensure that our patients receive the exceptional care they deserve. We do not forget they are the reason we come to work every day – it's all about going that extra mile.
