Elizabeth Alvarado – Surgical Dental Assistant
I am a surgical dental assistant working with Dr. Lopez since January 2017. I knew dental assisting was my passion, so I became an RDA in 2011. To further pursue my education, I recently became DAANCE certified in 2019. On my days off I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. What I like best about working with Dr. Lopez’s office is how our team works and passion all contributes to providing and delivering exceptional care to each and every patient equally.

Danielle Valdez – Surgical Dental Assistant
I am a surgical dental assistant and a full-time mommy to two beautiful angels. When I finished school in January 2019, I went straight to oral surgery, and it’s been the best choice I’ve made in the dental field. I love meeting and learning about our patients and their different cultures; every day is a different day in the oral surgery world! When I’m not looking inside a patient’s mouth, I’m going for a nice run or just enjoying my time off!

Jennifer Beltran – Clinical Manager
Hello! My name is Jennifer Beltran, and I am the clinical manager at JF Lopez DDS, MD, RPh, PA.

As the clinical manager, I make sure that everything on the clinical side is in place and ready for surgeries so your visit at our office runs smoothly and effectively. I am a DAANCE-certified surgical dental assistant and have worked for Dr. Lopez since 2012. Dr. Lopez is an amazing doctor to not only his patients but his staff as well. He loves to teach and has helped me grow in my career.

I am currently working on getting my bachelor’s in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance at University of Houston-Victoria. I also serve at my church. I enjoy spending time with my family and my two dogs, Thor and Astro. I love to eat (who doesn’t, right?) and watch movies while enjoying a nice frozen Jack and Coke. I’m excited for you to come to our office and experience what it’s like to be treated and cared for as if you are a part of our family! I promise you, your friends and family won’t believe you when you tell them you came out smiling from your oral surgeon’s office!

I have lived in Houston for 38 years. The one thing I love the most is spending time with my family. I love music, dancing and movies.
Miriam, the administrative supervisor of JF Lopez DDS, MD, RPh, PA
Miriam Canchola – Administrative Supervisor, Insurance & Treatment Coordinator
I enjoy being able to help patients understand and optimize their insurance benefits and answer any questions they may have. I help them eliminate any obstacle they may face with getting started towards their surgical care. I love working with Dr. Lopez because I know the patients are getting the best surgical care with him; he is so passionate about his surgery that putting patients at ease and comfort is so natural to him.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and getting away as much as we can. We enjoy traveling and enjoy all of Houston’s amazing eateries. I have been in the dental field for 13 years. I enjoy being the patient’s advocate. I believe you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with, and here in our office, we have the BEST team you can ever dream of.

Ana, the patient care coordinator of JF Lopez DDS, MD, RPh, PA
Ana Jaimes – Patient Care Coordinator
Hello, my name is Ana Jaimes. I am the patient care coordinator. I attended PIMA Medical Institute in 2015 to obtain my RDA Certification and was lucky enough to get hired by Dr. Lopez a few months after, and four years later, here I am. I quickly realized that my true calling was working at the front of the office instead of being his surgical assistant. What I enjoy the most about working as a patient care coordinator is being able to assist patients in scheduling their appointments in a timely and courteous manner as well as thoroughly verifying their insurance benefits that way our patients can take full advantage of their coverage.

Coming from a banking background, I believe that I bring honesty and dependability to our office, which I apply on a daily basis with each and every person that come into our office. When I am not helping our patients, I truly enjoy working out and drinking Micheladas on the weekends with friends and family.
