Meet Dr. Koppel

“In my years of practice I have found that the greatest pleasure my career has given me is to not only help people to have a beautiful smile while improving their self-esteem, but also to establish long lasting personal relationships spanning several generations.”

Over the past forty-plus years, both children and adults in the Hot Springs area have looked to Dr. Koppel for help in attaining attractive, healthy smiles. With his experience of treating literally thousands of orthodontic patients, and his deep commitment to family dental health, Dr. Koppel’s patients can rest assured they are receiving the best in orthodontic health care.

Dr. Koppel earned his dental degree from Northwestern University Dental School. After serving in the U. S. Army as a dental officer, Dr. Koppel enrolled at Baylor College of Dentistry to specialize in orthodontics.

Dr. Koppel is a full Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics (board certified). Like all medical and dental specialties, seeking treatment from a board certified specialist is always highly recommended. It is the single best assurance that the doctor is capable of the highest level of treatment.

Dr. Koppel has been and continues to be involved in many community organizations. He has served on the board of the Ouachita Children's Center, Levi Hospital, and the Kiwanis Club of greater Hot Springs. He is an active member in the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce and Fifty for the Future. He is a member of the Garland County Dental Society, past president of the Arkansas Orthodontic Association, and a former officer of the Southwestern Society of Orthodontists. He maintains active membership in the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, and the Arkansas Dental Association.

Dr. Koppel and his wife of 51 years, Sue, have three children, Wendy, Jodi, and Mark, and two grandchildren, Jake and Ben. Due to the fact that his children live in Oregon, New Zealand, and Chicago, Dr. Koppel feels fortunate to be able to meet people and experience places across the globe.
