Upon graduating from dental school, Dr. Metz served as a Captain in the US Army for 3 years at Fort Lewis in Washington State.  After completing his service, he remained as a reservist for 7 years, during which he worked in San Antonio as an associate dentist for 2 years before opening his own dental clinic in Bergheim, TX in 2002.

Dr. Michael Hoeppner

General Dentist

After growing up in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Dr. Hoeppner received his bachelor's degree from Baylor University.  He then attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio where he earned his dental degree and graduated with honors in 2008.

Dr. Hoeppner is always interested in learning about the latest techniques in dentistry and loves to learn how he can apply them for his patients.  He strongly believes that his best role is to serve as an information resource to his patients and help them choose the best treatment for their own situation.  He has experience with a multitude of dental treatment options that can help patients of all ages and across multiple disciplines, including cosmetic restorations, implants, and full-mouth rehabilitation through the All-on-Four procedure (permanent dentures in a day). 

When out of the office, Dr. Hoeppner enjoys spending time with his wife and 3 children.  He enjoys biking, hiking, and playing sand volleyball, as well as practicing karate with his kids.
