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 staffare 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've only visited this office twice, but everyone there is really friendly. For a dentist visit, they made everything as pleasant as possible. I also like the fact that they have a wonderful distraction technique during procedures. I got to watch a movie while they worked. It was very effective.

From the minute I walked in I was greeted with happy, genuine smiling faces. With each person I met through my visit I was more and more comfortable and really enjoying my appointment. Who knew? Enjoy my dental visit?...incredible! Dr. Averywas awesome at explaining in detail my digital x-rays. What was going on with my teeth, bone structure and my prioritized options and the financial breakdown and plan I might want to pursue to fit my personal financial needs. It was not only stress free, but so informative and really enjoyable. I have had a lot of dental work in my life and been to a lot of dentists...Dr Avery and his better than great ,huggable staff were incredible. Do yourself a big favor and come see for yourself. Found my happy dental home! ~Scott H.

I had my first visit today with Dr. Lopez and I can't recommend him and his team enough. I have had my share of dental anxiety and fear in the past and I felt comfortable, cared for, and left feeling betterthan when I came in. I had an excellent cleaning and x-ray with Traci who took the time to hear my story and carefully explained everything she was doing. The equipment they use is really quick, high tech and non invasive which is a plus. After meeting with Dr. Avery, I felt like I was informed of the situation, what my options are, and feel comfortable moving forward with the process. I was so happy with the experience, I will be making this my spot!

It's getting difficult to find decent, friendly, honest folks these days in the dental field. This dentistry is the real deal! My first visit was simply to have a crown that had come loose re-cemented on short notice. The experience waspleasant, courteous, and professional from the initial call to the handy blue mug they offer to first time visitors to the practice. Love them!

Dr. Lopez and his dental assistant are excellent. Courteous, gentle, and explained everything beautifully. His recommendations for treatment worked very well. The x-ray machine chin rest was not clean and I had to ask to have it cleaned beforeusing it n me. The receptionist was quite unkind to me personally, and snippy when I asked professional question. I highly value customer service, and am a very pleasant patient who has managed C.S. in other businesses; if the public interface person is mean, I don't return.

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 stillon the chair and doing nothing except opening my mouth. Dr Avery Lopez changed my idea of dentist appointment 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 this.

Showed up 25 min early for my appointment expecting to wait in the lobby, and after being greeted by name, they got me right in. Can't say enough good things about this office and staff. Everyone is so kind, friendly, andaccommodating - from the front desk to the hygienists to Dr. Lopez. I've never had a dentist who cared so much about his work or about patient satisfaction. I will be recommending this dental office to everyone I know.
