The first step toward achieving a beautiful, healthy smile.




Hopkins Braces is as unique as the smiles we create! Our office is a fun, upbeat, happy environment for kids, adults and families. We are excited about your decision to receive orthodontic treatment and want to make your braces experience as comfortable and convenient as possible.


We have offices in Searcy and Heber Springs to best serve our patients. The offices are linked by high-speed computer access so we can view our patients' secure digital records in both locations.


We offer an initial FREE CONSULTATION for new patients of all ages that includes full pictures, x-rays and one-on-one visit with Dr. Hopkins. We also use the time to talk about payment options and insurance billing to maximize your benefits and find a payment option that works for you.



"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
and opened Hopkins Orthodontics in 2006. Since then, I have been dedicated to my career and giving my patients the best options for enhancement of their smiles."


Dr. Hopkins has lived in the Searcy area since 2006. He is married to his wonderful wife, Nicole, and has been blessed with two handsome boys, Hunter and Knox. When he’s not in the office, he enjoys hunting, fishing, golfing, local sporting events — anything that involves being outdoors and spending time with family.



Dr. Powell is an Arkansas native who is back to bring beautiful smiles to the same community that brought her so many smiles throughout the years. Dr. Powell is a 2017 graduate from University of Tennessee Health Science Center with her MDS and Orthodontic Certificate and she is one of only four individuals who was selected to complete the University of Tennessee's orthodontic program in 2014. Dr. Powell enjoys reading, fitness classes, especially Pure Barre, and traveling.


In addition to Dr. Hopkins, the Hopkins Braces team includes a Team Leader, Financial Coordinator, New Patient Coordinator, Orthodontic Assistants and Administrative Team, who are all available to provide you with the highest standards of orthodontic care and customer service.


Communication is important to all of us! Each team member is uniquely trained to make effective communication the highest priority. Whether it involves calming an anxious patient, explaining different treatment options to patients and parents or speaking with your dentist regarding proposed treatment, excellent communication is our goal.
