Meet Dr. Maribel Lopez

Dentistry is my passion. It allows me to help other people while fulfilling the artistic aspect of my personality. Making a difference in people’s lives by giving them ideal oral health and beautiful smiles Is  very fulfilling; I see on a daily basis that a small change in a smile can make a big difference in regards to a person’s self-confidence and appearance.

Education and Continuing Education

Since receiving my degree at the University of Florida, I have stayed current with the changing world of dentistry, completing numerous continuing education courses and attending seminars across the country. I regularly attend courses at several internationally renowned organizations that are dedicated to dental excellence, including the Seattle Study Club, the Pankey Institute, and the Spear Center for Continuing Education in Scottsdale, Arizona. Dentistry is a dynamic, ever-expanding field that requires commitment to learning on a daily basis. I love learning how I can serve my patients according to the latest protocols and with the latest technologies.

Outside the Office

A native of Medellin, Colombia, I now reside in Miami with my husband, Juan, and our two young daughters, Gabriela Ann and Elisa Marie. Our two dogs, Tango and Baru, are also important members of our family. My family is the most important thing in my life and they always come first.

I am interested in healthy eating and exercising, and strongly believe in the importance of prevention to make our lives better. My family and I enjoy working out together, scuba diving, and snowboarding. I also like reading and baking healthy desserts. 

My community is very important to me as well. I am the leader of a project called trueSmiles with No Limits in which we serve the dental needs of immigrant children. The Nehemiah Calling non-profit organization also partners with me to assist those in need.
