What is Your Favorite Part of Being a Dentist?

Dr. Sopel is very proud to work on the hardest substance in the human body, and he can’t imagine any other career but his current one. It allows him to express his artistic side, and there’s never an end to the new knowledge, technologies, and techniques that are always being expanded on in the vast world of dentistry. Simply put, you never stop learning!  Among many things that separate his practice from others is the fact that he boasts his own onsite dental lab creating smiles that are never unnatural looking.  He has mastered the art of subtlety, while preserving the qualities that make your smile uniquely yours.  Custom shading, 3-D imaging and time saving techniques are just some of the ways he has earned a reputation as a premier dentist and has gained the trust of some of the most famous smiles in Horseshoe Bay.
