His mantra is to treat patients like family. Dr. Shawn is proud that he is able to learn new ideas through his practice and continuing education like staying up to date on the latest dental technologies or new bone grafting techniques. He is committed to research in oral medicine and dentistry and has received several prestigious accolades. His publications have appeared in The Journal of the American Dental Association and the Journal of Radiology. He was a Stevens Institute for Innovation Most Innovative Research nominee and a California Dental Association Table Clinic; Clinical Science winner.

Dr. Hofkes is married with two children who are the joys of his life. He was born and raised in Wisconsin, and his parents still reside there, so he occasionally travels back to visit.

Just like in the practice of dentistry, practicing golf or skiing and all its little idiosyncrasies can drive you crazy, but there’s nothing more fun than a good challenge and coming out of it stronger.
