Dr. Roxana Lopez, 38, is the owner of FLOSS Dental in McAllen, a small chain founded in Dallas in 2007 by Dr. Clint Herzog, which offers a new experience in dentistry.
“We’ve brought into perfect alignment the concept of a full-service dental office, set in a modern, high-tech environment, excellent customer service, and experienced staff,” Lopez said. “People feel comfortable coming here because FLOSS offers a soothing, yet fun place to get your dental work done.”
FLOSS brings a variety of dental services for both children and adults from teeth whitening to dental implants. In its sleek facility, easily accessible from Expressway 83 and Ware Road, patients can also receive popular treatments, such as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.
“Six Month Smiles is a new procedure. It is a clear braces system designed to straighten your teeth in about six months,” said Lopez, a McAllen native who received her training from the University of Texas-Houston Dental Branch. “This is a service that has brightened the lives of many adults who previously would hide their smile. Six Month Smiles is an alternative to wearing metal braces, plus it’s non-invasive and very affordable.”
A smile that stands out is important to many people, which is why FLOSS offers free teeth whitening to patients who come in for preventive treatments like X-rays, exams, and scheduled cleanings.
“I believe in providing people with exceptional care and accessibility to dental treatment,” said Lopez, who has been practicing dentistry since 2005 and owns Lopez Family Dentistry in Mission. “We typically take most major dental insurances and we go above and beyond to ensure our patient’s needs are met by providing alternative finance options.”
Lopez said the McAllen location will employ six people to begin with, but plans to expand by providing more jobs for local dental assistants.
“FLOSS set out to transform the dental industry by creating a new experience for patients,” Lopez said. “In doing so, FLOSS has created a new experience for our employees — a collaborative environment centered around unconditional service, transformation, and fun.”
FLOSS has its own unique approach to dentistry, which is called “FLOSSophy.” According to the company, it is the belief that quality dentistry can be provided in an upscale environment with the latest technology and at affordable pricing. This belief is backed by the FLOSS staff’s commitment to make that experience happen and available to everyone. Personal comfort and unmatched professionalism placed in their state-of-the art setting will make your visits to that traditional dentist a thing of the past.
FLOSS Dental opened early September and is located at 4501 E. Expressway 83 in McAllen.
