Vivian Lopez, DDS (Berkeley, CA)
Re: Pediatric Dentist Recommendation
We LOVE Dr. Vivian Lopez at 2821 Telegraph, 2 blocks North of Ashby, at Oregon. 848-4430. She has been great for our son who has sensory processing disorder and is very fearful. Thanks for reminding me, we need an appointment! Bonnie
Re: Dentist/periodontist for dental-phobe teen
I would suggest seeing Vivian Lopez , DDS on Telegraph. She sees older teens and children . Try Carole Grimme for the gum surgery. My son who is 18 had this done and it went actually very well. She is calm and very supportive. We have great experiences with both of these. anon
Re: Kids Dentist in Berkeley accepting Delta Dental
Try Dr. Vivian Lopez on Telegraph at Oregon. She's amazing and accepts Delta. Love my kids' dentist!
Dr. Vivian Lopez was Pediatric Dentist for my kids who are now 20 and 23! She is great with kids and never pushes you to do anything prematurely. She and her staff have just the right approach to make kids (and parents) really comfortable. We have been so happy with her that I haven't even pulled my 20 year old out yet, to see an adult dentist. She is on Telegraph, just north of Ashby. Her phone number is 848-4430. Satisfied!
Re: Delta Dental Rec. Needed
Regarding your search for a Pediatric dentist...my kids have been seen by Vivian Lopez for years. She is very kind, gentle and has wonderful support staff that have been with her forever. They are all gifted with children and my kids have never had any less than good experiences there. She is located on Telegraph Ave near Oregon St. I highly recommend her. shojo

Re: Healthy Families dentist
My kids have done very well with Dr. Lopez, office on Telegraph near Ashby. She has great assistants and other dentists to complete her practice. My daughter, now 12, went thru maybe 4 other scary dentists before Vivian when her teeth became broken and all -- and both my kids have stayed with Dr. Vivian Lopez all these years. I think she even sees some college students who haven't yet left home.
Point being: she is smart, observant, socially savvy, and talked me thru an emergency one Sunday nite even before she was our actual doctor. She was so patient and thorough and asked all the right questions. I cannot say enough good things about her!!! I wish I had her phone number handy, but look her up online or in the phone book. Or call me and by tomorrow I will find her number!
You'll be pleased. Plus her office waiting room has a bunch of old typewriters, which kids find fascinating! And books and journals. And balloons and prizes after all those scary procedures. She and her whole practice are just terrific.

Re: Dentist for Autistic Child
We just switched (at Dr. Doshi's recomm.) to Dr. Vivian Lopez (510) 848-4430, in Berkeley. She and her staff have been extremely patient, experienced and adept at getting x-rays, cleanings and exams completed.
Re: Holistic children's dentist
I am English too, and understand the different atmosphere vis a vis natural medicine. Having said that, I cannot say that the dentist I am about to recommend is particularly natural health in her orientation! However, she is very relaxed as well as caring. She and her staff are marvelous with kids. I have never felt pushed with anything, either. She maintains that so much about teeth is genetic and never made me feel terrible about my son's shocking amount of cavaties!
By the way, I sense a sea change in attitudes in dentistry generally: my own dentist has gotten very excited about xylitol and recommended to me that I brush with Spry, which is full of the stuff and sans flouride... they have this paste for kids too... Hope this helps
Vivian Lopez: 848 4430. SHe's on Telegraph in Berkeley and excepts Delta insurance as well as those paying without! Susan-Jane

Re: Dentist for kids that takes Delta Dental
I highly recommend pediatric dentist Dr. Vivian Lopez. My now 10-year-old has been seeing her since she was tiny. Offices are not fancy (i.e., not hi-tech). She gives good solid care, has a super nice staff with procedures very oriented toward kids (they get to wear sunglasses and play with toys to distract them, and get a balloon and sticker at the end). They put on videos only for longer procedures. Telegraph near Ashby, 848-4430. Nicole M.,

Re: Pediatric dentist for first timer?
Try Vivian Lopez in Berkeley. She has a pediatric practice and she and her staff are great with kds. My daughter has been going to Dr. Lopez since she was two. anon
Vivian Lopez in Berkeley is wonderful, my kids have seen her since they were little. I highly recommend her.
Wondering if anyone has any recent experience with Dr. Vivian Lopez? She comes highly recommended by my dentist (Dr. Marchelle King) but looking for some recent parent recommendations. thanks.
Vivian Lopez in South Berkeley is great. She's respectful and positive and thoughtful. alice
Vivian Lopez, DDS, has been super with our two boys, now 6 and 10. She has
always handled well our energetic and/or fearful sons even when he
required a root canal at age four. She also gives out great (I mean,
mega-cool!) stickers (and not lollipops) at every visit.
Her office is at 2821 Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley (just a couple blocks
north of Ashby). Phone is 848-4430.
I used to be annoyed at the time the office visits took, but I've smartened
up and schedule both my kids first thing in the AM, and we're out an hour
or so later. She may be a bit 'interventionist" for some people (sealants,
laughing gas, X-rays) but she is well-mannered and low pressure if you
don't want to go that route. The office is sometimes busy, the toys and
books are a bit worn, but thats irrelevant to me now that my kids know what
going to the dentist is about. My daughter had a cavity filledwhen she was
5 with no trouble, and Dr. Lopez was very patient and responsive with my 4
year old son this morning when he didn't want his teeth cleaned. She
humored him, relaxed him and then checked his teeth anyways, advising me to
let the cleaning go this time since his teeth were fine.
