Meet Dr. Hoffpauir
Each day I come into work excited to know we are able to help members of our community have healthy, beautiful smiles. Each patient has a different story and I enjoy getting to know each and every one of them. I love my job and what I do. Outside of the office, I have a full and wonderful life with my wife and high school sweetheart Amanda (Owner of Alvin Animal Clinic), my children Valen and Fiona and a menagerie of animals.
Education and Continuing Education Dr. Hoffpauir is dedicated to continuing education and being up to date with the latest technology and procedures in the field of dentistry. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Houston – Clear Lake with a degree with Molecular and Cellular Biology. During my time at UHCL, I conducted research in organic chemistry, worked on a large scale grant to develop a a virtual histology and microbiology course and was even published.
I pursued my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston and was the recipient of the Houston Academy of General Dentistry Senior Student Award for Excellence in Continuing Education.
Christopher S. Hoffpauir D.D.S. graduated from University of Texas Dental Branch. He opened his practice in Alvin Texas, where practices General Dentistry. A recent article in SideKick magazine quotes Dr. Hoffpauir as saying the following when asked why he chose to start his own practice. “I wanted to practice dentistry in the way I believed it could be practiced,” he began. “I wanted to be more than a tooth mechanic; I wanted to be an oral physician.” This philosophy and a deep passion for dentistry and the lives that it impacts has shaped everything that Dr. Hoffpauir does.
