The TeamThe Team


Registered Dental Hygienist


My job is to educate my patients on the best ways to attain good oral hygiene and maintain clean, healthy teeth. I currently hold Associate degrees in Dental Hygiene and Pre-Dental, and am working on a Bachelor’s in Biology at FIU. My goal is to go to dental school and perhaps even become an oral surgeon! While I spend a lot of time at school, I cherish my time in our office. I love coming to work and seeing my patients happy and looking forward to learning new ways on how to improve their oral hygiene at home. Ever since I began working here, Dr. Lopez has been so attentive and helpful with any questions or concerns I may have. She is an amazing doctor and instructor; I have learned so much just listening and watching her and every day.

My boyfriend Anthony is the most supportive man I’ve known. My hobby outside of work and studying is playing volleyball. If I’m a little loud, it’s because I’m hard of hearing.


Dental Assistant


I have more than 35 years of experience in chairside assisting and work alongside Dr. Lopez during many of our patients’ procedures. The most important aspect of my job is ensuring the well-being and complete satisfaction of our patients. We here at trueSmiles take a lot of pride in our work, and work very hard to ensure your visit will bring you back to our office again. Our office is such a wonderful, social place to work. I’ve met so many great people here, both in my teammates and in our family of patients.

I'm a mother of two wonderful kids and a grandmother. I enjoy spending my free time with my family.


Office Manager

Natalie Natalie

I am here to assist patients with all their scheduling, billing, insurance, and treatment planning needs, and make sure our office runs smoothly from day to day. I feel so fortunate to be a part of this team. The group of women that I work with are very intelligent, independent, and driven. It is an inspiration to be around such beautiful, well-rounded women and I could not have chosen a better team or leader! They all inspire me in so many different ways and I learn so much from them.

I traveled to and lived in other states, including Tennessee and Kentucky, before moving back to Miami in 2012. I have a beautiful son! His name is Jaeden. We do almost everything together; he is more helpful than I could’ve ever imagined. We enjoy our weekend routines. Our most cherished of them is going to church on Sundays. Other than that, our time is mostly spent doing anything active! We are almost never home and we love it!


Appointment Coordinator

Nohely Nohely

As one of the first people you will speak to at our office, I will happily help schedule appointments and answer questions regarding dental insurance. While I came to the office with no dental experience and no knowledge of the field, I’ve become so passionate about dentistry that I’m actually pursuing a dental career! I can only hope that one day I can inspire someone the way Dr. Lopez has for me. The best part of my job is seeing smile transformations! Being a part of giving someone the smile they have always dreamed of—nothing can beat that.

When I’m not at trueSmiles, you will most likely find me either at school or my other job. I work at a children’s banquet hall where I play interactive games and do face painting. I absolutely love it! I also enjoy my Sunday routine, which consists of watching my boyfriend play baseball and then meal prepping for the week.


Dental Assistant

Vivian Vivian

I brought more than 27 years of experience with me when I joined the team in 2016, most of which was in restoration, orthodontics, oral surgery, and periodontics. This allows me to be versatile when providing assistance to Dr. Lopez. I truly enjoy every aspect of my job, especially working directly with patients and understanding their needs. I enjoy knowing we can transform the most nervous and anxious person into trusting us and finishing with a beautiful smile. That is very rewarding to me, and I am proud to be a part of the process. I have a wonderful family with my husband, which includes three amazing children, a grandson on the way, and two lovable dogs. In our spare time, we enjoy riding our motorcycles or at the sea fishing.
