Arturo Lopez, Jr., DDS
Dr. Lopez was born and raised in south Texas. In 2013, he moved to Tennessee in search of a peaceful environment for his family. The rivers, lakes, lush green landscape and mountains nearby, along with its friendly people, all attracted him to this area, which he now calls home.
Dr. Lopez received his dental degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 2003. He graduated with honors and received recognition for excellence in clinical dentistry. In 2005, he completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency, where he received training in procedures such as implant placement, wisdom teeth removal and gum surgeries. Dr. Lopez considers his patients’ comfort of utmost importance and is therefore oral and IV sedation certified.
For four years, Dr. Lopez served as clinical professor in the Department of General Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. During his tenure as faculty, he taught several courses, including Diagnosis and Treatment Planning, and conducted various research projects.
During his free time, Dr. Lopez loves spending time with his wife and two daughters, traveling, camping, participating in church activities, singing and playing guitar.
