Meet the Doctor

meet3Dr. Eddie Lopez can’t imagine doing anything else, and it shows. He graduated from dental school at Loma Linda University, and continued on with his pediatric dental residency there as well. One of the reasons Dr. Eddie loved his training was its commitment to service. He has a passion for serving children in need and has completed many trips overseas and domestic. Following graduation, Dr. Eddie practiced in his hometown of Oxnard, California. He served on the Ventura County cleft palate team and enjoyed teaching dental students as an associate professor at the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry Pediatric Department.

With over 12 years of experience under his belt, Dr. Eddie is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Oregon Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. He is passionate about caries (cavity) prevention and early intervention orthodontics, and loves the chance to educate his patients and their parents.  Dr. Eddie prides himself on taking ample time with each and every patient, working with parents in making decisions about your child’s dental health that everyone can feel comfortable with.  Our office is laid-back, professional, and patients are treated like we would our own family members.

Dr. Eddie is a husband (his wife Julie is also a dentist) and father of three active young children 5 years old and younger (and two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels!).  In his spare time, you will find Dr. Eddie at the coast catching waves. An avid and accomplished surfer, he also has his pilot’s license and loves to travel, read, and explore the Portland food scene.
