Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Laverne G. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr Lopez for over 10 years, and have never, never had a problem whatsoever. I have had several dentists throughout the years and Dr Lopez will be my last dentist. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a caring, compassionate dentist. Dr Lopez and his staff are the best at what they do for their clients/patients. Dr Lopez and his staff treat me like a member of the family, and for anyone to say otherwise, is beyond me. I am always acknowledged and greeted when I enter, always inquiring how I’ve been, etc. I have been to other dental practices where I’ve haven’t been greeted and/or acknowledge that I’ve even entered the waiting room. I have never had to wait, ever, even when I am way early for my appointment. I have always gotten excellent care from Dr Lopez and his staff, and am extremely happy with the care that they’ve given me over the years. I highly recommend Dr Lopez and his staff. I cannot express my gratitude enough for Dr Lopez’s and his staff’s kindness and care toward me

Dr. Lopez and his staff are truly what make every visit to University Park Family Dental a wonderful and welcoming experience. I’m greeted by name every time I walk in, my time there is never rushed, and every employee is so friendly making for a very comfortable experience. While I can’t speak for this first-hand and only based on my observations, it seems as if Dr. Lopez truly values his employees and their work-life balance, which is a rare consideration for many businesses. For that, I have so much respect for this business and will happily continue going here for all my dental needs. I’m grateful for all the staff and the work they do. Thank you for serving me the last 7 years!

Dr. Avery Lopez and his staff led by the office manager Codie are absolutely spectacular. They have gone above and beyond to take care of me and my family and have always been extremely professional. Codie the office manager was so helpful in working with my insurance to ensure that I received the best treatment at a reasonable cost. My son loves going here because they have Netflix and flat screen TV’s at each station so he never gets bored. I have recommended multiple friends of mine and they have all had good experiences as well. I highly recommend Dr. Lopez to anyone considering a top of the line dentist and friendly staff.

Amy W. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I am glad to have found University Park Family Dental. The office is super convenient to where I live. They are also open until 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and on Saturdays as well! I can’t stress enough how amazing this is as someone who works an 8-5 office job with an extremely rigid schedule. I love that I can go in after work or on the weekend for my cleanings without having to stress about making up time at work or using precious PTO/vacation. The staff is all super nice as well. They’re good about avoiding high-pressure sales tactics, which is something I especially appreciate. I have casually asked about a couple of cosmetic dentistry procedures and had specifics & pricing explained to me, but it was only after I asked, and even then, they didn’t try to sell me anything I didn’t need. Just come here!

So, I have a huge dental phobia. One of those – you don’t go for a few years because you are so scared of the dentist, the jaw clenching sounds of tools against teeth, and nightmares from past dental work – kind of dental phobias. I blamed not going to the dentist for the last few years because of pregnancy and having twins but as my babies started to teeth and play with toothbrushes, I realized that I needed to start doing better with taking care of my teeth. Oh, yeah, and I might have had a wisdom tooth come in and got an abscess from an infected tooth. It was time to go to the dentist. So, looking around on ZocDoc (cause who wants to chat on the phone nowadays) I needed a few things: +who could get me in relatively quick +who had great reviews for being gentle (and was a family dentist because if you could care for kids, you could care for a freaked out woman, right) +and who offered some kind of help for the extreme anxiety. A minute into my consultation with Dr. Avery and his team, I immediately knew I was in the right place. From a calming environment, friendly team, and treatment plan in place – I felt comfortable moving forward. My dental cleaning went smoothly thanks for the conscious sedation that Dr. Avery offered. As well as the noise canceling headphones that played my favorite Pandora channel and tinted glasses to block out that bright light. AND a fluffy blanket. It might sound silly, but the little things count. And then, a week later, I went back in to get my wisdom tooth taken out, a tooth extracted, and several fillings fixed. About threeish hours of work. And guess what? I remember nothing from the procedures except my family walking me in, being wrapped in a blanket, and feeling like I was at the spa. Seriously, having twins is hard and that was a nice getaway! I can’t recommend Dr. Avery enough. He is friendly, welcoming, and his staff is absolutely magnificent. Each and every one of them made me feel comfortable, calm, and no one made me feel silly for having extreme dental anxiety. If you’re on the fence, avoiding dental care, or just need a cleaning – I highly recommend checking out Dr. Avery and his team. 

Jill D. from University, Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend University Park Family Dental! Dr. Lopez and his staff are professional, friendly and welcoming. They did a great job with my exam/cleaning, and the office is modern and has a comfortable feel to it. I don’t review services very often, but they definitely deserve 5 stars and I’ll be going back. It was nice to go to a business where they offer top-notch service and genuinely appreciate their patients.

Stephanie J. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


I very seldom write reviews but my experience at this office inspired me to post one. I am usually nervous to go to the dentist having had some bad experiences, but I was put at ease right away. Every staff member is extremely friendly and polite, the office is clean with state of the art equipment, and unlike many offices I did not have to wait more than a few minutes to be seen. From the initial X-rays, to the cleaning, to the filling, everything was very thorough, painless, and easy. While I may eventually need more work done down the line, Dr. Avery acknowledged that it was not urgent and did not pressure me to get a bunch of work done immediately, which I have realized many dentists will do. I truly trust that Dr. Avery and his staff will take great care of myself and the rest of their patients!

Every-time I come here the staff is always so welcoming and professional. They always make me feel as comfortable as possible. I get very anxious when it comes to teeth but Dr. Lopez and his staff always make me feel great. I always get a blanket and get to watch a movie which helps distract me. Dr. Lopez is the best! I used to hate going to the dentist but I don’t anymore!

I found University Park Family Dental through my insurance provider. Dr. Avery and his staff did an excellent job during my first office visit. I could tell the office truly cares about making everyone comfortable. I unfortunately had to move to Dallas a few months ago, otherwise I would have continued visiting their office. I would highly recommend them!

Dr Lopez send his team were awesome! I hadn’t been to the dentist for almost 4 years (shame on me, I know) so, suffice to say, this visit was something of an adventure. The dental assistant / hygienist was AWESOME! Was very careful to keep any pain to a bare minimum while doing the best most thorough teeth cleaning I have ever had without question. I would absolutely recommend Dr Lopez and his team, but that doesn’t feel strong enough. If you’re looking for a dentist, stop looking, you’ve found him!

Wow! Love University Park Family Dental. Dr. Avery and Cody and everyone else that has made my experience great! I had my cleaning and fillings done here as well as internal bleaching on my front tooth. I have always been very self conscious about my front tooth being more yellow than the others and Dr. Avery told me he could fix it with internal bleaching. I was so excited but i don’t think i was prepared for the big difference it made! Also, after the root canal and internal bleaching I got a personal call from Dr. Avery to check on how i was doing. I am so pleased with this place!

I have been seeing Dr. Lopez for over 2 years now. I think I have been in the waiting room a total of 5 minutes. The staff always great me warmly. I feel confident in the combined abilities of Dr. Lopez and his staff. The professional atmosphere and painless visits have changed the dread of going to the dentist to a much more pleasant outlook towards getting my teeth cleaned. I wholeheartedly recommend University Park Family Dental for anybody looking for an honest and skilled dentist

DR LOPEZ IS THE BEST DENTIST IN COLORADO HANDS DOWN!!!! Myself and my two sons have been patients of Dr. Lopez since he was in his old office. We live very close to the old office but we loved Dr. Lopez and his staff so much that we followed to the Denver office. Dr. Lopez and his staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. The Staff and Dr. Lopez have treated myself and my sons with respect, love and compassion. My 16 year old son has had two set of braces due to my son being 16 and irresponsible so you can only imagine the amount of time I’ve spent at Dr. Lopez’s office. I have recommended my sister and her husband and their 4 kids and they also love Dr. Lopez. I also have recommended a friend who’s 3 year old daughter hated the dentist and now the 3 year loves to go and always asks her mom when are they going back. Children, Adults anyone I would Highly recommend Dr. Lopez and his staff they are awesome and never make you feel uncomfortable. They are always looking for ways to work with you and will make it happen one way or another. They are open on Saturday’s and understand that everyone is on different schedules. Thank you Dr. Lopez and the Staff for all that you have done for me and my family!

Dr Lopez is the best dentist I have ever met! He is the only one that has never caused pain or made me nervous to go to the dentist. There are tons of dentists to choose from, and I absolutely will drive 2 hours (one direction) to have Dr Lopez work on my mouth. I refuse to let any other dentist touch my mouth!

Stephanie M. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Lopez and staff. I always try to avoid going to the dentist whenever I can. I had one bad experience that left me with fear of ever going back. However when I walked into the office everyone was so friendly and took the time to remember my name (it was my first time there) I had a wonderful experience and I cant wait to come back for my next cleaning

Alyssa V. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


First, Jessica took GREAT care of me pre appointment. She explained everything clearly and was very genuine. I have super high anxiety about the dentist to the point that I just bust out in tears and hyperventilate. Dr. Avery was calm and understanding and it was the first time I got work done and felt zero pain. The assistant got me headphones with music to help ease me and was very kind. All in all its a great office, nice people, clean, and a calming atmosphere. I think I found my new permanent dentist.

Merry Hammack (Source: Google)


I typically don’t write reviews but this place is one of the best dentist I have ever been too! I have had some very bad (even traumatic) experiences with previous dentists. Dr. Lopez and his team are knowledgeable, caring, and do amazing work. They made me feel comfortable and explained everything thoroughly. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Zara Brussel (Source: Google)


Having had terrible experiences with dentists in the past gained a huge phobia. Dr. Lopez and his entire staff have been nothing less than amazing in helping me overcome my phobia. From the minute l called to the last visit I had, I have been treated with compassion and understanding and kindness. My teeth were in terrible shape after years of neglect due to my phobia so I felt ashamed and embarrassed. Dr. Lopez and his staff are so kind and helpful I cannot say enough good things about them. Thank you SO much for everything you do, you are superheroes!

Alaa B. from Englewood, CO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been at dentist since I was 5 years old, and every appointment was a nightmare. I hate going to the dentist not only because the pain I have to tolerate, but also the time I will have to stay still on the chair and do nothing except opening my mouth. Dr Avery Lopez changed my idea of dentist appointments totally. The two hours appointment went so fast while I was watching a move, and he was so gentle I didn’t feel pain once when he did the root canal. I really recommend him. I wish I knew him long time ago I think I won’t be so afraid of going to the dentist like that

Lizzie M. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Lopez and his staff. They accepted my fear of dentistry and comforted me through the process of taking care of some issues that had developed with my teeth. Their costs are reasonable; I know, because I shopped around excessively before I chose University Park. Honestly Dr. Lopez made me feel so comfortable right away and he gave me a clear and concise treatment plan that worked perfectly into my insurance company’s plan year, deductible and limits. Ashley at the front desk always makes me feel like part of the family when I walk in. I can’t say enough good things about this place. My teeth look and feel really great…I kind of can’t wait until my next cleaning!

Dr. Lopez and his wonderful team create an extraordinary experience. His hygienists are gentle and quick. His office staff are friendly and helpful. The office was mindful of COVID-19 and I felt very safe. My temp was taken upon arrival. I watched staff actively cleaning and sanitizing throughout my visit. And everyone wore masks and respected 6 feet of personal space.

Stephanie Summers (Source: Google)


My husband and I were looking for a new lifelong dentist and we found it with Dr. Lopez! His staff is so caring and remember us and things happening in our lives every time we visit. They make everything as comfortable as possible with every procedure, big and small. I particularly love that they take actual photos (not just x-rays) of your teeth and show you what they look like from the inside of your mouth. From the waterfall in the middle of the exam rooms to dark glasses and Netflix provided to ease anxiety, this must be the calmest dental office in Denver. We love this dentist and will continue to be patients here as long as we are able.

I’ve had my teeth cleaned here twice and just had 3 fillings replaced and another cavity filled. They are fantastic with their patients. This was the easiest and most painless filling I’ve ever had. They also set you up with a movie during the procedure which is obviously nice, but also went a long way to calm me down (I like needles and drills in my mouth as much as the next person). I’d strongly recommend Dr. Lopez.

Lisa Ransford (Source: Google)


I’ve been going to Dr. Lopez for several years now. I’ve always been met with friendly, professional staff that truly take an interest in how I’m doing. I never have to wait to be seen and find that the hygienist is gentle and caring. Dr Lopez is knowledgeable and kind. He thoroughly explains any recommendations that he makes and has a conservative approach regarding intrusive dental procedures. I highly recommend Avery Lopez and University Park Dental Clinic!

I’ve been to some dental clinics before but University Park Family Dental is the best one I would say. Great communication with patients, great crew, well equipped. Dr. Lopez is such a fantastic dr. He knows what to do, makes your smile looks wonderful. Evelyn who works at the dental is one of the best over there. I love what she did to me. She knows what to do, how to make you love your smile. I would say she is a professional in what she does. lovely girl, when she works on your teeth, you can tell she is not an assistance, she is some how like a doctor ^_^. Jessi Who works at the front desk, she is so awesome, so friendly with patients, answers any question if you have. I love you guys at University Park Family Dental. I recommend anyone to go there if you need to make your smile look like this 🙂

Juniper T. from Jackson, WY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to University Park Family Dentistry since they first opened and have always had wonderful care and treatment. The staff is incredibly friendly and professional and Destiny has been an excellent and thorough hygienist. Dr. Lopez brings a comfort and confidence to the dental profession that I have never seen and the office is fully decked out with top of the line cutting edge equipment including flat screen computers at every chair. I highly recommend this practice to anyone of any age!!!

Alison W. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough wonderful words about someone whose job can be to cause me (and relieve me of!) pain. Dr. Lopez and the wonderful staff at UPark Family Dental took me in when my insurance switched and I cracked a tooth fully in half at work. Without question, I was seen immediately and relief was on the way within hours. Any time that I have asked to have the pricing done before the procedure, they take it upon themselves to run it through what my insurance will cover and what I’ll need to pay day-of. It’s impressive and rare to see such customer service! They will give laughing gas if you’re a nervous dental-goer, and Dr. Lopez takes absolute extra precaution to make sure that you’re numb pre-procedure. I’ve since been back for two cleanings and to get that cracked tooth changed from a filling to what will be eventually a root canal, but I have no fear knowing I am in the hands of someone who A – wants to make sure that all other options have been exhausted before doing the painful/costly one and B – does so with such care! I showed up once an hour early from an accidental scheduling mishap and the front desk was so apologetic and gave me a gift card to get some coffee nearby while I waited so I wouldn’t have to hang out in the waiting room. The staff at the office remember the littlest things, and I take that into complete consideration when working with others. The front desk staff even remembered that I was growing out my hair and complemented me on it after my six month checkup! Attentive, wonderful, caring, and great – couldn’t recommend them more!

Dr. Avery and staff are true professionals and will take great care of you. I honestly look forward to every visit. Everybody in the building is friendly, knowledgable and inviting. This is the first dentist I’ve met that takes the time to explain what procedures are needed and why. This is much appreciated. Plus, offering Saturday appointment times makes life much easier. 12/10!

Daniel W (Source: Google)


Simply put: this was the best dental experience I’ve had in over ten years. I was anxious at first but the staff was welcoming and did not shame me for my poor dental history. They were comforting and made me feel more confident in my choice in seeking dental care at this location. I already have a follow up appointment scheduled and intend to make this my primary dental care physician. For anyone who feels like it’s “too late” to seek out dental care, do not let your fear set you back. You will be well taken care of and leave feeling more confident than you came in.

I have been going to University Park Family Dental for the past 6 years and am always impressed with how friendly and professional everyone is. Last week Dr Lopez saw me for an emergency after i broke my tooth. They got me in right away and Dr Lopez did a root canal the same day. My tooth feels great now! I have always been nervous about going to the dentist but Dr Lopez and everyone there makes me feel so comfortable. Evelyn and Jessica at the front always greet me by name and they make me feel like family when Im there. Thank You. I recommend this office very much

Dr. Lopez is the greatest Dentist in CO! My one and only fav Dentist! The ambience is perfect! His Staff, specially Jessica and Evelyn, were so friendly and professional.They were patient working with my schedule ESPECIALLY with my financing arrangement- i.e.terms of payment that works with my budget. They made it happened!!! And now I can smile all day Long…I had an Excellent experience with his team. I had a front teeth replacement and other gums problems which are all fixed. 5 STARS! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Heather T. from Englewood, CO (Source: Yelp)


After reading the other reviews, I feel completely compelled to write a good review. I have no idea how someone could not like Dr. Avery Lopez or his practice. They are ultra-friendly, accommodating, and quick. The facility is state-of-the-art. I am a very nervous dentist-goer, and they have done absolutely everything in their power to make me feel at ease. If one can “love” a dentist, then I love this one! As a side note, I once asked the office if they could donate toothbrushes to a homeless shelter I am affiliated with. Dr. Lopez called me back personally with an offer to help. He is a good dentist and a good person. Five stars

Gary M. (Source: Zocdoc)


We have been trusting our dental care to University Family Dental for several years and this has been the best experience my wife & I have ever had at any dental office! His office is state of the art, his staff are all very friendly, competent and very professional and we have never encountered more than a few minutes of wait time when arriving for our scheduled appointments. Dr. Avery is an EXCELLENT dentist, he has always taken as much time as is necessary in counseling us on our best dental options and when he does perform dental work for us he always ensures that we don’t experience any pain during the procedure!

I usually hate going to the Dentist but Dr. Lopez and his staff ensure my visits are always pain and stress free. If you have a fear of dental work as I do I highly recommend this office. My 7 year old daughter is also treated here and she loves it. Another big plus is they are open Saturdays, great for all of us that work all week. The fact that I took the time to write this review speaks for itself.
