Dr. Lopez is the kindest, yet most professional doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He and his staff have made my entire experience at Michigan Oral amazing! I had an extraction and implant done and would never ever go anywhere else if i had to go through this again. Thank you for making a terrifying experience so easy and comfortable to deal with.
Our pleasure! Glad to hear you had a 5-star experience. If you need anything in the future, we'd be happy to assist.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Lopez. My first visit was a consultation for implants. It was appreciated that I received a written cost for services. The following visit, I had extraction and 3 implants. He was very carrying and gentle. I had no problems with the surgery. Two weeks later I had stitches removed and an appointment made for testing of the implants. I would recommend Him to anyone.
Your kind words have made our day! Thank you for being such a wonderful patient, Karen.

Dr. Lopez was incredible. He made me feel comfortable and at ease at my consultation appt. I scheduled my appt to have 7 teeth extracted, eek! He was was so professional yet a little humorous, which helped me immensely. My experience was a total breeze. No pain, swelling or bruising. Couldn't have gone any smoother!

My 12 yo daughter had to have 4 teeth pulled and she was very anxious about it. Dr. Lopez helped her to relax, answered all of her questions and treated her with respect. He is funny and kind. We highly recommend him!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We strive to give our patients the best possible outcome and we are happy that you had such a great experience.
in Novi, MI |
I have major things going on with my mouth and Dr. Lopez has made me feel very comfortable and at ease. After seeing Dr. Lopez a couple times, it was a relief to know I could transition to him after Dr. Hitchcock retired. I live in Novi and I could find somebody closer, you know? Dr. Lopez has a good chair-side manor, a great way of explaining things, and I never feel rushed. This is very important to me, especially when I know I have many more appts. towards more beautiful teeth!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We strive to give our patients the best possible outcome and we are happy that you had such a great experience, Sallie.
in Canton, MI |
Dr. Lopez and staff are terrific! As with any trip to an oral surgen, I was anxious to say the least. From the first consult with Dr. Lopez he put my mind at ease, throughly explained the procedures and gave me complete cost breakdown ahead of time for my review. The surgery was quick, painless and recovery amazingly easy. I needed a tooth extracted and an implant started on another tooth. Cannot say enough great things about Dr.Lopez. He's awesome!
Thank you for recommending our practice, John. We appreciate you sharing your great experience. Please tell your friends and family!
in Adrian, MI |
Our 8 year old son had 6 teeth removed for crowding issues and pain associated with crowding. Dr. Lopez understood our son's personality and made a recommendation after consulting with us that he felt he could talk our child through the process without fear and tears and sure enough...not a tear was shed! I would recommend him for working with children, we had a great experience.

Dr Lopez was awesome! His bedside manner is outstanding! So thorough in his explanations of what is going on. I highly recommend Dr. Lopez! And the staff are super as well!

Good about testing after he get numbing with Novocaine. Since there was still some pain he gave a little bit more Novacane until he could work with me comfortably.

Dr. Lopez performed very well during an extraction of an infected tooth. He explained fully what the process would feel like and (afterward) what to expect in the future. His manner was professional in all ways and based on my healing during the last few weeks he did an admirable job. I am confident he will continue to safeguard my health at the next stage of tending to problems requiring attention.

My daughter really liked him, he explained everything well. She said the whole procedure was easier than she thought it would be. Thanks Dr. Lopez and staff!

my first time there. overall happy with the whole procedure
in Ann Arbor, MI |
Dr. Lopez and the staff were very efficient, supportive, and responsive to questions. Dr. Lopez provided a clear explanation of the procedure and answered all of my questions directly and competently. The procedure went as described and was much less complecated and uncomfortable than I anticipated. The instructions for follow-up were clear and contributed to the post procedure period being uneventful and not as uncomfortable as I anticipated.

Extremely personable and professional, Dr. Lopez presented me with a variety of treatment options along with the +/- of each then let me decide on a path forward. The office sent me a treatment plan including times and costs to help me make the decisions. I was very pleased with my experience and will see him again for future treatments.

I highly recommend Dr. Lopez and his team. My daughter had six teeth extraction in the same procedure, and she was a little nervous. Dr. Lopez and his team help to ease her anxiety and worries. He excels in his job and patient care.
