Meet Dr. Carlos Lopez, owner of Riggs Family Dental, a new partnership for MB2 in Chandler, Arizona.
Tell us about yourself.
My name Dr. Carlos Lopez, I’m a doctor here in Chandler, Arizona. I’ve been practicing for 14 years, and graduated in 2005 from Tufts University.
What is your favorite thing about dentistry?
The ability to impact and change someone’s life immediately, whether it be to get them out of pain or to change their appearance and restore their confidence.
How were you introduced to MB2?
Through a joint venture with Harmony Dental Partners, an organization that I was already a part of. One of the great things about MB2 has been getting involved with the community. I try to reach out to local women’s shelters, we usually do some pro bono work for the women’s shelters and Veterans. I love participating in events at Arizona Mission of Mercy. As far as myself, I help out with my son’s baseball team here in Flagstaff, and hope to be getting involved in his hockey team shortly.
What are some goals for your practice?
Continue the growth. We’ve had tremendous amounts of growth in the last few years and it doesn’t seem be slowing down, hopefully MB2 can help us keep going with that!
What sets your practice apart from the others?
The thing that I feel sets our practice apart from others in the area is we really focus on patient experience. A big part of that is our technology. Using technology like CEREC, allows us to do same day treatment for patients where they don’t have to come back for second visit, don’t have to come back for anesthesia. Patients love getting impressions without the goo in their mouth, so all these technologies that we have incorporated really help our practice stand out.
