At New Smile Dental, Dr. Lopez’s goal is to help you achieve a beautiful smile with the best dental health possible. He does this in a number of ways, most importantly providing you with information about maintaining optimum oral health.
Your First Dental Visit
We understand that dental visits can cause patients some uncertainty. Our front desk personnel are trained to help address your concerns and make appointment scheduling a worry-free process. Every patient is greeted with a smile and an encouraging word. The waiting room is decorated in calming colors with entertainment provided to help patients keep their minds away from upcoming dental work.
For many patients, the anticipation of discomfort increases the anxiety of a dental visit. At New Smile Dental, we believe that every patient deserves a pain-free experience. Some discomfort is unavoidable, but Dr. Lopez and his team respond to all patient requests and concerns. Frequent breaks, additional numbing, and take-home medications are all possible. Your comfort comes first, and our expert team will address any questions to ease your mind.
New Patient Forms
At New Smile Dental, we take pride in making your appointments extremely convenient, whether you are coming in for a routine teeth cleaning or a more comprehensive cosmetic procedure. You may think that your appointment begins when you sit in the dentist's chair, but in many ways, it really begins when you fill out patient forms before seeing the dentist.

Dental Insurance Welcome
Our team knows that there can be confusion when it comes to dental procedures and dental insurance. Patients can bring in their insurance card or other information, and we can discuss what your co-pay and your deductible will be. We can discuss what your insurance company should cover, what it won't cover, and get pre-approval for some procedures. We will make the insurance coverage paperwork trail as painless and easy as we possibly can. We know that you have better things to do than to worry about insurance forms and coverage options. Let us take that burden off your shoulders!
We proudly accept the following dental insurance plans:
- BCBS of AR
- Delta Dental
- AR Kids (Medicaid)
- And many more! Ask our friendly team if we take your plan.

We have a specialized team of professionals that will work with you toward financing your procedures. When insurance fails, we can develop payment arrangements that fit your needs and budget. Interest-free financing is available for patients with approved credit. New Smile Dental has a commitment to not only providing quality dental care, but also helping to secure the right paperwork for insurance and financing.
