I have been a patient of Dr Juan Lopez for many years. He is the best! I needed an implant and the results were awesome! No problems whatsoever with it. It look great! I would recommend him and his staff if you are looking for a dentist. They are friendly, kind, and caring. I have never been disappointed in any procedure I have had there. A shout out to my hygienist Jennifer! She is awesome and deserves a raise! 😁

TMJ Therapy Will Help Your Jaw Feel Better
The team at Lopez Dental Associates wants you to know that you don’t have to keep living with jaw pain. A simple examination will help us determine if your pain is caused by inflamed temporomandibular joints (TMJs). Most people don’t think much about these joints, which connect your lower jaw to your skull, until they become irritated. Then they can cause quite a lot of pain when opening and closing your mouth. Everyday tasks like talking and yawning can be extremely uncomfortable.
The good news is, your dentist can treat your TMJ problems with a custom-fit TMJ appliance. You’ll place it in your mouth at bedtime, and it will gently move your lower jaw forward to relieve tension on your TMJs.
Your appliance will:
- Allow your TMJs to begin healing so that you feel better soon
- Fit comfortably in your mouth, so you won’t have any problem getting used to it
- Prevent teeth grinding, which can damage your tooth enamel and cause you to need dental crowns to repair your teeth
Since teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) is a leading cause of tension headaches, you may also experience fewer and less severe headaches.
Dr. Lopez and his team have performed extensive procedures for me over the years. Not only have strangers come up to me to compliment me on my beautiful smile, but also some of my friends (who are dental professionals) have remarked on the high quality of the work he did on my smile! It is stunning! He is a paramount professional who only accepts excellence from himself and his team! Consider yourself lucky if you are able to have him as your dentist!!!
I was pleasantly surprised by the level of care Dr. Lopez and his staff gave me during my visit. Everyone, from the receptionist to the hygienist were pleasant and took time to explain each procedure before hand. Their attention to detail reassures me that I will be very pleased with the care I will receive going forward.
My experience in the office was amazing!! Everyone was so kind and patient with me. Did not make me feel ashamed about the state of my teeth. Holly had the most gentle hands while cleaning my teeth!!! Will definitely keep going.
Such an amazing doctor and team. Not only are your health problems a concern but every treatment plan is Taylor made for you. I have the privilege of knowing and being a patient of Dr. Lopez for 25 years.
I used to hate going to the dentist. But once I started going to Dr Lopez I dont mind going at all! I feel like everyone is very well trained and that they care about the individual patient. I also think they must use state of the art equipment because they’ve never hurt me in all of the processes I’ve had done there. It helps too that Dr Lopez is such a nice and funny guy. I dont ever want to change my dentist!
What an amazing team! From reception desk, to the dental chair, it’s clear they all love the service they offer. Top notch technology, and experience. If looking for a new dental family, I highly recommend both Dr. Lopez’s, and their teams. Finally found my new dental home, and I thank you! Julie Shelton
So grateful for the awesome care with Dr. LOPEZ office. I have been terrified of going to the dentist. Such great experiences every time I’ve been there. Even with multiple root canals in the same appointment.
12/10 recommend Lopez Dental Associates! My two boys (5 and 3) and myself have been going there for just over a year now! Jesica is the best dental hygienist!!!— she is patient, kind, and has wonderful bedside manner. If you are looking as an adult or for your kids, this place comes highly recommended!
Dr. Eric Lopez and his team are fabulous! They were able to give me a last-minute appointment when I had a dental emergency and fixed the issue beautifully. I highly recommend this practice!
TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal.
You may need ongoing treatment for a TMJ disorder. Fortunately, by wearing a simple appliance, you can prevent teeth grinding, a common cause of TMJ problems. We have helped many patients find the solution to this particularly painful problem. Today, they are enjoying their lives with fewer headaches, earaches, jaw pain, and jaw stiffness.
Your insurance may pay for part of your TMJ treatment. We can help determine what your plan will and won’t cover and what your portion of the cost may be. Keep in mind that we offer financing options to help pay for your treatment. We work with CareCredit, which has low-interest payment plans to make your treatment more accessible.
