Board-Appointed Parent Liaison
Degrees and Certifications:
Dr. Lindsey Hoppe was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas and grew up vacationing along the emerald coast. She and her husband Dirk dreamed of raising their family in this beautiful small town. That dream became reality with their relocation to the 30A area in early 2014.
Dr. Hoppe earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Texas A&M University in 1999. She earned her Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston in 2003 where she received numerous awards, including 2 scholarships and publication in a major medical legal journal. Dr. Hoppe has studied in some of the most elite post-doctoral programs in the country and was awarded the prestigious Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry in 2012. After a brief associateship in a dental practice in The Woodlands, Texas, Dr. Hoppe took over a small dental practice in Austin, Texas, and owned and operated it for 10 years, more than doubling its annual production and patient base in her tenure. During that time, Dr. Hoppe was honored to be designated a “Texas Monthly Superdentist” every year from 2009-2013. This award is peer-nominated and elected by other doctors and dental professionals in Texas, and gave Dr. Hoppe statewide recognition.
Upon relocation to the 30A area, Dr. Hoppe immediately stepped into the role of Dental Director for the Children’s Volunteer Health Network, treating over 1,000 children and providing over $300,000 in free dental care for underprivileged children in Walton and Okaloosa Counties. While fulfilling her role at CVHN, Dr. Hoppe simultaneously planned and executed the opening of her state of the art comprehensive care dental office, 30A Smiles, which she co-owns in the Inlet Beach area.
Dr. Hoppe still serves CVHN and the local children through her position on the CVHN Board of Trustees. She has a special interest in community involvement and serves in a number of additional roles in our community, including volunteering for local schools and shelters, and volunteering and fundraising for many of our local beloved charities. She is currently serving on the advisory board for Sacred Heart Hospital. She served on the Seaside School Board of Directors from 2019-2021 and still serves the schools in a number of roles.
In her spare time, Dr. Hoppe enjoys being outdoors in our beautiful area as much as possible; deep sea fishing, college football (especially the Texas A&M Aggies), reading, writing and bicycling. Dr. Hoppe resides in Santa Rosa Beach with her husband, Dirk, their son, Hunter, and their Golden Retriever, Annabelle.
